To My Readers:

It's the holidays and if you are like me, you have a list of people you need to buy something for as a gift of appreciation - while not spending too much - and yet you want it to be special. And you'd prefer NOT to wait in lines! Food/desserts like chocolates go fast and by the time it's delivered you are out over $80. Gift cards? Nahhh.

How about this: A signed first edition MEG 20th Anniversary edition hardback!

Only 5,000 were printed and each one is numbered... only $24.95 plus S & H. With the movie set to be released in 15 months, these gifts will mean something now and in a few years when they start popping up on ebay for $200.00. Only available at - order ASAP to guarantee a X-Mas delivery.

And take a look at the posters on sale as well.

Happy holidays!

Living Tips - Changes in Diet Can Change Your Life
One of the best-kept secrets of medicine is that the body can heal itself IF we create the right conditions inside our bodies.  So what are the right conditions? It all comes down to chemistry.  There are only two sides to chemistry:  acid and alkaline.  Acids are corrosive and degenerative, causing inflammation, weakened cells and symptoms of pain and dis-ease.  Alkalines are regenerative, restorative, and astringent helping our bodies heal, cleanse, and thrive.  Those who make changes towards a more alkaline diet find they have less pain, less mood swings, reduction in symptoms of dis-ease.  In fact, changing what you eat alone can increase your energy, tighten sagging skin, improve your overall outlook on life, and most of all, enhance your health.  It is not always easy to figure out how to make these changes for yourself and your family.  Consult with Visit Sue Forma, holistic coach at:  In Health and Harmony

This garlic mixture can also be used on other cuts of meat. --Erin Suchoski
