My Pandemic Pivot

By Susan Hargreaves

Like so many, my previously active life came to a halt with the advent of COVID-19 restrictions. I write these words with the full realization that staying home with scrumptious vegan fare and a working internet would be an absolute luxury to so many facing housing and food instability and job insecurity.

Dog World with Tina

The Perfect Storm

By Tina Valant-Siebelts

A peppy octogenarian friend contacted me, telling me they decided they want a dog. “GREAT! So many dogs need homes!” I said. “I’ll help you find the perfect match.” It is my sixth sense, after all. This wonderful person has had their share of heartache, and certainly deserves joy and happiness. What’s better than a dog to make you smile, get you out walking and heal the heart?!

Clutter to Clarity

Holiday FAQs

By David Hall

We all have organizing abilities as well as clutter-creating habits. So no one is hopeless. With coaching, with practice, and with the will to change, we can overcome obstacles of all sizes. I recommend my S.M.A.R.T. system, where you start simply with a small decluttering area, a drawer, a shelf or just one section of a bathroom cabinet.

From The Heart

Why the Holidays Don’t Matter

For the many years I’ve been writing this column, I conclude each year with an inspirational message about the importance of the holidays. This year I would like to take a different approach. I would like to suggest that the holidays don’t really matter and there is nothing you really need to do about them.

My Sports Christmas Wish List

By Mark Tudino

As we (mercifully) count down to the end of 2020, it’s important to give thanks for what we have, and to hope for the best in the upcoming year (although it won’t be hard to top this one – in addition to COVID-19, any year that takes both Sean Connery and Alex Trebek within one week of each other can’t end soon enough).

Are there any environmental or health risks associated with the solar storms that have been hitting the Earth recently?

By Earth Talk

Solar storms have been in the news lately, but the truth is these naturally occurring solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) from the Sun happen all the time – or at least a few hundred times a year, from what we can tell here on Earth.

A Year to Remember

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.

Although our collective COVID-19 reality is not over, it certainly made 2020 a year to remember. Who knew, as we were prepping our green outfits and shamrocks to welcome spring, that our world was going to come to a screeching halt? Oh, the innocence of it all.

Garlicky Bok Choy Noodle Soup

By Forks over Knives

The vegetables in this colorful noodle soup are just barely cooked, so they stay crisp in texture and bright in color. Baby bok choy, harvested when it’s about six inches long, is milder and more tender than mature bok choy.
