7:00~1/29/12~Advice from Norah Marler

Lately, New Jersey media, including WCTC radio, have been buzzing about a new book called No More Dating Pigs — You Are What You Date. The book is written by New Jersey writer, Norah Marler.

I received a copy a few weeks ago, and made curious because of the title, it moved up to the top of my reading list. I’m just getting a chance to take a look at it now…full review will be on NSNJ soon.

7:00~1/13/12~Elijah’s Promise

image

At 7:00 tonight, I was just about to start cleaning up the kitchen.  It was the one at Elijah’s Promise, the soup kitchen in New Brunswick.

I volunteered for the dinner prep shift and, with a team of other volunteers and staff members, helped prepare a meal for almost one hundred people.

My experience at Elijah’s Promise was a very special one, and I will certainly be heading back there to volunteer again.

More about my experience tonight, and information about how to donate to – and how to volunteer with – Elijah’s Promise, will follow on the NSNJ site soon.

7:00~1/12/12~Stretching

image

Paying attention to my health and overall well-being is something that often gets pushed aside due to a very busy schedule. I’m trying, though, to make a better effort to take good care of myself.

My 7:00 picture tonight was taken where I was stretching my neck and back muscles…and feeling the stress and tension melt away.
