Section 2, part 2

(1) Liz A. in NC: My cousin uses red rice yeast [to reduce bad cholesterol] and it has really worked for him.

(2) Barbara H. in PA:  Hopefully, this [my report on my health] will be the worst news you get.

Response: I agree. Reminds me of my mother. As she got older, her hands would shake. She would say, “That’s not so bad” if that’s the worst she had to deal with.

(3) Janeen R. in PA: I know you like to walk and my husband has had high cholesterol for many years (however, he is on a medicine). The doctor recommended walking to keep LDL down and it does work.

As for the implant:  I went to the best periodontist in the world(at least i think so), and he was able to do bone grafting (my spelling might be wrong) and implant at the same time!   Total time on his chair one hour, which happens to be more prominent with women because of dry mouth syndrome.!!!!! (Which comes with aging that you might not understand since you are a child!)

(4) Jo F. in PA: I know I told you this before.  It’s worth repeating.  I just love opening your newsletter to, “Cynthia, my beautiful bride,….”  It’s a beautiful dedication and tribute. It makes me smile every time.

Now about that heart….

“I also had a recent stress test. When taking it, I easily went past
the allocated time–and was told that I have the heart of a 45-year old.”
How in the world did they ever find it?  Instead of leaving it in the glass jar in the back of your closet, did you accidentally forget and stick it in your pocket that day?!  Or is this something you’ve been carrying around, not even realizing it was someone’s heart?
The bigger question, WHY Blaine, WHY?  Why are you in possession of someone’s heart?
I had to read what you wrote a few times.  At first, I thought maybe you were saying the doctors think your heart is like a 45 year old’s.  I know that couldn’t be the case however.  Your heart is more like a 25 year old’s heart.
(5) Bill L. in PA: With the passing of the legendary James Garner, Turner Classic Movies is showing a bunch of his films.  I just finished watching The Children’s Hour with Garner, Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine.
(6) John D. in PA: These links are for articles regarding cholesterol by Dr. Stephen Sinatra, considered one of the top integrative cardiologists in the world.  Saw him speak in Allentown this summer, excellent.
Response: Interesting; thanks, John. I used to have a real problem with cholesterol until I took my doctor’s advice . . . he said I could eat anything I wanted as long as it tasted like sh*t!
(7) Michael H. in PA: 9 REASONS YOU NEED TO BE GIVING AND RECEIVING HUGS EVERYDAY – See more at: http://www.spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com/9-reasons-you-need-to-be-giving-and-receiving-hugs-everyday/#sthash.zC7E7TIe.dpuf
(8) Kathe and Pete D. in NJ: I just wanted to extend to you and Cynthia our belated congratulations upon your recent anniversary celebration.   The two of you are always so happy together and care for each other deeply.   We are pleased that you have found so much happiness and love together; and we wish each of you many more years together.   All our best.
(9) Colleen D. in PA: 27 Ice Cream Shops You Need To Visit Before You Die
(10) Margie M. in PA: Which dog breed are you?
(11) Jane S. in NC: I am happy to share with you my new website ~ JaneSherman.orgIt has been created so that the experts on what it is like to live with dementia can tell their stories… both those who have the diagnosis and those who are sharing that diagnosis as care partners, family and friends.I invite you to WATCH the videos included on the site, LISTEN to the anecdotes shared by those living with a diagnosis, and READ the reflections of those with a diagnosis, care partners, friends. Resources will be included.I also invite you to participate.
If you would like to submit a writing or a video (mp4) or audio clip (mp3) for consideration, please do.Please feel free to share this site with others. Thank you!http://www.janesherman.orgMy sincere thanks to Sarah Benoit at Creative Original Online Marketing for helping me create this site.

Section 12A, NC events

(1) Len E. in NC: Saw Miss Saigon last night at Flat Rock and was blown away by the performances and story based on Madama Butterfly. One song from the show, Bui Doi, was the one opening the second act. It was so appropriate in light of what is happening with kids coming to our country from Guatamala, Honduras and El Salvador. If you can download it and attach it to your next newsletter you would be performing a real ” mitzvah” while enlightening a lot of people as to how ugly our country has become.

Note: MISS SAIGON runs through August 24. For tickets, please click:

During the teaching of Genetics and Chemistry she realized what her students really wanted to know was what she was currently learning about herself – she called it “The Science of Self” and began to weave this into her curriculum – until one day students and teachers alike began to encourage her with words of “You really need to be on stage.”  She took that seriously and retired a few years later.Tina FireWolf grew up on a 30 acre farm where summers were often spent in snorkel gear floating in the stock tank observing the goldfish she asked to dad to stock for her. She has a love affair with the Ocean world and began her career at 15 working in a local pet store. As a SCUBA instructor she has dove with sharks of various species on purpose, experienced underwater caves and shipwrecks and spent several years assisting in research on Clownfish and Southern Flounder. The world of Science took her from Aquariums to Zoos and she stills spends endless hours in nature watching life unfold.All are welcome to come and bring a friend!

“I want people to know that this is a story about regular people and how they learn, change and grow. And I want audiences to enjoy themselves in the process. If they come away with something to think about, that’s all the better. And I hope they think about seeing people as who they are and not what they look like or how they happen to pray.” – Alfred Uhry, playwright, Driving Miss Daisy

YES! That’s what theatre should do. Theatre gives you a safe space where you can listen and think and see. Driving Miss Daisy is a moving and thought-provoking play that gently encourages all of us to “see people as who they are.”

Do you have the summer blues? Everyone is going away? It’s too hot and humid to think about going outdoors? Can’t wait for Fall?

JUST ADDED: Mondays, 7:45 – 9;00 pm with Suzette

We are all beginners! This class is suitable for both beginners and for those with some experience and will include basic breathing exercises (pranayama), foundational poses, sun salutations, and deep relaxation.

Since yoga is an extremely potent agent of transformation, and not simply a form of exercise, the emphasis in this class will be on poses combined with proper breathing, inner awareness and alignment, which will bring about deep changes in one’s energy level and release deep psychic blockages. You will be guided to use a non-aggressive approach and moderate pace and avoid injury. This is your chance to glean and discover the fruits of yoga: vigor and vitality, balance, peace, a sense of well-being, and joy.
