Getting Back into the Groove


worth6 Sometimes you can find yourself in a real funk and for no apparent reason. You have no idea why you feel this way, but you just don’t feel like yourself. You just can’t seem to get it together! Maybe you’re usually this outgoing and confident person and now you find yourself sitting around feeling down and are no longer so sure of yourself. Could it be you have over compromised, over-compensated, given in and given over so much of yourself that you no longer know where all the parts of you are scattered? It could be that the things you thought you needed to receive love, to feel lovable, to be acknowledged, to be accepted, to increase your value or your worth have left you shattered and broken and you may feel like you will never be able to pull yourself together. Well, don’t you fret! You will soon be…

9 Steps Towards a More Balanced Life

I love this blog!

I Am Equilibrium


    Life does not provide us with a manual on how to lead the perfect life. The fact is, that there is no perfect life, but instead a well-balanced life and so often you will find that people strive for perfection when what they should strive for is balance. Even so, once we figure this out, everyone is different. What might work to create a balance for one person, may not work in the exact same way for another so what can we do. While this is true,  I find that there are steps that we can take to find a happy and healthy balance that we can all benefit from in one way or another. The following are 9 steps that can help you create the type of balance that is conducive to leading a happy and healthy life:

1. Think Positively

Glazed Meatloaf

This sounds good!

Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

So yummy So yummy

This glaze will work well for almost any meatloaf creation. The one pictured above was 1/2 veal and 1/2 venison with yellow peppers and breadcrumbs to bind it along with a bunch of other spices and such.

The nice thing about this glaze is it is lighter than the standard heavy tomato based types, but sweeter than a brown gravy or pan reduction sauce. It is also really easy to make and would work well for baked chicken or pork. This makes enough to cover about 2 1/2-3 lbs worth of meatloaf.

Sorghum Mustard Glaze

  • 2 tbsp sorghum
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2-3 dashes sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped fine
  • Salt/pepper

Mix everything together and taste for seasoning. Brush on once meatloaf is almost cooked then return to oven for 15 minutes to set glaze.

Allusion to Quetzalcoatl!

Very interesting and cool


Sorry friends I couldn’t write a blog for another extra week (after Out of Office-2) as I had mild conjunctivitis. This time I haven’t forgotten, the answer to the question of the week is:

1)      As a weapon

2)      As resonance chambers for making sounds

3)       As an air reserve while under water

So, today’s prehistoric animal is not a dinosaur….. It is… Quetzalcoatlus!!! 


The name Quetzalcoatlus means “Allusion to the serpent god Quetzalcoatl”.  It lived about 80-65 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous Period. Quetzalcoatlus was the largest known flying creature of all time with a wingspan up to 10 metres. It weighed about 100kgs. Its habitat is Inlands, near rivers and lakes. Fossils were found in Texas and Mexico. Quetzalcoatlus flapped its wings to get into the air, but once it was airborne, its huge wings enabled it to soar on currents of warm air. Quetzalcoatlus’s…

Epilepsy Foundation Calls For Legal Access To Medical Marijuana

Peer 2 Peace

The Epilepsy Foundation of America is calling for an end to federal
restrictions on medical marijuana, in light of its potential benefits
for treating uncontrolled epilepsy.

On Thursday, the foundation released a statement pushing for legal access to medical marijuana nationwide.

“If a patient and their doctor feel that marijuana is their best treatment option then they need to have safe, legal access to medical marijuana and they need that access now.”

English: Medical marijuana neon sign at a disp...

The statement, written by Epilepsy Foundation CEO Philip M. Gattone and Chair Warren Lammert, notes that clinical trials have already begun on a marijuana-derived chemical called cannabidiol (CBD).

But federal restrictions make studying the chemical unnecessarily difficult, the statement continues. And while Lammert’s daughter is lucky enough to be one of the children enrolled in these trials, many others must wait for final FDA approval.

Some families have uprooted their lives to obtain CBD oil through Colorado’s medical…
