In America, men live sicker and die younger than women
Men, it’s time to stand up for your own wellness and take steps to get on a healthier track. Don’t put it off. Don’t blow it off. The facts are clear.
Making your health a priority
Women—they do a great job of caring for others but not always for themselves. National Women’s Health Week was this month, and women were asked to make their own health a priority.
April is Cancer Control Month.
When it comes to cancer prevention, we all have choices. Some will increase a person’s risk factors; others will make someone less likely to face a battle with cancer.
Whether you’re a touchy-feely person or not.

There was a new nutcracker under the Christmas tree this year. Not the wooden soldier variety that decorates a mantel. Rather, the real nut-cracking kind, along with the requisite bag of assorted walnuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and those wonderfully challenging Brazil nuts.

Grandma’s cookie recipe is baking in ovens all over Central New York. Evergreen boughs or whole trees go in houses. Maybe you make a fire in the fireplace or burn scented candles. However you celebrate the holidays, chances are the scents of the season will bring a flashback of emotions and memories.

Who can make a positive difference in your life every day, listen without interrupting, read your emotions but not need to talk about them, greet you with equal enthusiasm at the beginning and end of the day, keep you active and engaged, make you laugh and play, and love you unconditionally?
