Dieting is not a quick fix, but a long slow lifestyle change.
Quick fix diets don’t work, other that this one.
The Foundation for Being Extraordinary
It is important to celebrate your large and even small successes. And it is even more important to celebrate the large and small successes of your friends as well as their birthdays and anniversaries. Also, we should never neglect to celebrate holidays.
Here I am celebrating Easter with the Easter Bunny.
Getting Along with Others
It is important to do things with your family and friends.

BOOK OF THE WEEK
Living Your Yoga
by Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T.
Of course, if you are into yoga you will want to read this book; but even if you aren’t into yoga this book has something to say.
Using the time-honored wisdom of the Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita to steer the course, she serves up off-the-mat practices to guide you in deepening your relationships with yourself, your family and friends, and the world around you.
MOVIES OF THE WEEK
I didn’t stop watching Allied, but I tend to agree with the critics below.
Critics Consensus: Allied has its moments, but doesn’t quite achieve epic wartime romance status — a disappointment made more profound by the dazzling talent assembled on either side of the camera. [Source: Rotten Tomatoes]
Melinda and Melinda
This 2005 film is a bit complicated to follow, but I enjoyed it and liked it much more than I did Allied
Two alternating stories, one comedy and the other tragedy, about Melinda’s attempts to straighten out her life.
Director: Woody Allen
Writer: Woody Allen
Stars: Will Ferrell, Vinessa Shaw, Chiwetel Ejiofor

ART OF THE WEEK

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Who says the most extraordinary person of the week has to be human.
The Easter Bunny is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs.
Originating among German Lutherans, the “Easter Hare” originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.
In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus or the Christkind, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holidays. (Source: Wikipedia)
