My Joy And Love Of Pen Palling

03-Sep-2015

I have been sending hand written and computer printed letters by postal mail for about 15 years. Over the course of time, the number of pen pals I have had has dropped off considerably due to technology.

I Am Not Afraid

23-Aug-2015

I’ve noticed how there seems to be so much pressure put on people to reach that point of success where you have everything you could ever want. I guess with greed, people have suddenly decided that unless you’re making millions per day, you’re not living your life to its optimum potential.

How To Be A Truly Healthy Vegetarian Or Vegan

20-Aug-2015

Following a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle is a choice that many choose to make. Whether it is a choice fuelled by humane concerns or just a downright dislike of meat, this type of diet results in a major shift in the intake of dietary protein. The vegetarian or vegan diet is often equated with the notion of a healthier lifestyle choice. It is perceived that to omit meat and other animal products from the diet automatically opens the door to glowing health. Unfortunately, in many circumstances this is not the case.
