Sleep More and Win

I read an article in Mens Health recently, that revealed a Stanford University study. “Treat sleep as a part of your training,” says lead study author, Cheri Mah, M.S.  Sleep studies have shown the more you sleep, the more you increase your speed, reflexes, and power in competition. College tennis players who aimed for 10Continue reading “Sleep More and Win”

Swine Not?

Miss Piggy here….Dana  made the mistake of leaving her book in the barn and it has been  an inspiration to me. It is a bestseller written by the great singer/musician Jimmy Buffet. It is called “Swine Not?” It is about a little pig that looks a lot like me. Her owners move into a hotelContinue reading “Swine Not?”

Dream Green – Lollapalooza 2009

Surely the music is impressive, but another impressive factor I discovered is the concerted efforts by the producers of Lollapalooza to make the Festival as ecologically responsible as possible.

I’m just glad it’sContinue reading “Wicker Park & Bucktown”

Shave and a Haircut two Bits!

I’m not sure what the haircuts cost, we bought some hair gel and setting spray, too, but Jennifer did a great job on Christopher’s hair, so we got an appointment for Peyton and Tom, too. If you are in the Chicago area and in need of a hair cut, you will love Jennifer’s Hair StudioContinue reading “Shave and a Haircut two Bits!”

Saints On A Plane

I felt comforted the whole time flying to Chicago, even with a landing in Dallas followed by another landing in Saint Louis.There was a precious little 4 year old girl singing behind me and a young man who reminded me of  Christopher  sitting beside me. We talked about our families and dogs. I saw aContinue reading “Saints On A Plane”
