Radon

Radon is radioactive gas that naturally occurs from decaying uranium in our soil. It’s a killer. It causes more deaths per year (21,000) than drunk driving.

Coconut Oil

I’m a relative newcomer to the coconut oil bandwagon.  A few years ago, Charmaine told me how I could evenly substitute coconut oil for butter when making cookies or while cooking.  It took me a while to warm up to the idea but once I did, it was bub-bye butter. Shannon has told me sheContinue reading “Coconut Oil”

Without it, I’m not sure I would have had the courage to do what I did or become theContinue reading “North Star (part 1)”
