My two week experiment as a vegetarian yielded some interesting results. Some were expected and positive, others were unexpected and negative. They fell into two basic categories, changes to my body and changes to my lifestyle.
I eat meat – well not red meat, but chickens, fish and (a few pigs) should run/swim as fast as they can when I show up at the picnic. That is why it was so radical when I decided to become a vegetarian for two weeks…
(And yes, I know pork is red meat; I didn’t buy into that “other white meat” campaign. I just can’t give up bacon crumbles!)

Happiness is sometimes an elusive goal, especially during stressful times (like during the holidays), or for people who suffer from clinical depression. We all want to be happy, but how do we do it?

If you are reading this, you are now too old to get away with a homemade gift, so you join the legions of clueless shoppers at the mall. But can you find what mom really wants at the mall?
How Is Your Bar Knowledge?

Knowing how to order a drink is one sure way to do that. Learn what to expect when you order your drink “shaken, not stirred.”
