"Mens sana in corpore sano" is a Latin quotation meaning "a healthy mind in a healthy body." Some mourn that it has been forgotten as North Americans witness a decreasing fami-

ly interest in outdoor activities and an alarming obesity rate among children. Michelle Obama, as U.S. First Lady, has been raising awareness of the urgent need for daily intellectual and

physical exercise through her highly praised campaign, "Let's Move." Bicycle riding is a long time favourite family outdoor activity and it helps to develop balance, coordination and motor skills, which contribute to an individual's overall physical fitness. For pre-schoolers, specialists in this field tell us that balance bikes - two-wheeled bikes without pedals - are a safe and enjoyable way to learn to ride. Take a look at the PlasmaBike, for example. Designed by PlaSmart, it is a popular model due to its recessed but fairly wide wheels whose internal bearing system ensures a safe and smooth ride.

Grandparents Ted and Jacqueline Odoni agree: "On weekends, our family's favourite thing after we've enjoyed a meal together is to go for a walk in the park or for a ride on our bikes. It's healthy, it's free, and it clears your mind. Cycling is what keeps our three grandchildren active, and it also keeps us alive and kicking."

Good health starts with the skin Your skin is the largest organ of your body. It protects you from harmful bacteria and viruses that can cause infections. It also helps your body sense the outside world and regulate your body temperature. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that billions of dollars are spent each year on skin care products, and billions more are spent on medical costs to treat damaged skin. From powders and lotions to sunscreens and firming creams, caring for your skin is a necessity throughout your lifetime. From infancy to adulthood, proper skin care can help ensure healthy skin

throughout your life. As we grow older, our bodies produce less moisture, drying out the skin, which then begins to lose its elasticity and its ability to protect the rest of the body. For many people, looking after the skin is not only a question of aesthetics, but it is also essential for one's health and well-being. Conditions that stress, clog or inflame your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, genetic makeup, certain diseases, and immune system disorders can cause dermatitis, hives and other skin conditions.

Columbia Healing Cream has been developed by dermatologists to help people of all ages naturally maintain the proper balance of moisture in their skin. Blending nature's best emollients with the latest technology, Columbia Healing Cream comforts and softens the skin while helping to alleviate cracking, dryness and itching. The unique combination of botanicals, vitamins and minerals in this product protect and soothe the skin, while stimulating the growth of new cells to bring back younger looking skin. Manufactured in the United States by a 140-plus year old skin care prod-

ucts company, Columbia Healing Cream is suitable for treating the most sensitive skin, including that of people who suffer from diabetes, eczema or psoriasis. If you want to make your skin smile, simply use Columbia Healing Cream as directed. More information on this product and Columbia Antiseptic Powder is available by writing to: The F.C. Sturtevant Company, P.O. Box 607, Bronxville, N.Y. 10708, or calling toll free (888)-871-5661. Log onto the Web at:, www., or on Facebook.

Rice balls are fried delicacies sold in many Italian specialty food stores and markets. Often filled with meat or cheese, rice balls can be bite-sized snacks or softball-sized meals. Due to some uncertainty about how to keep rice balls from falling apart, many home chefs shy away from recreating them in their own kitchens. However, with a little know-how, anyone can create delicious rice balls. Rice Balls 1 cup rice with a high starch content to make it sticky, like aborio 2 cups water Salt for flavoring Homemade or prepared breadcrumbs

2 to 3 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed 1 to 2 eggs, whisked 1/2 cup homemade or prepared tomato sauce Few sprigs parsley, chopped Salt and pepper to taste Vegetable oil for frying In a saucepan, bring water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Add rice to boiling water and reduce heat to simmer. Cover pot and cook, roughly 15 minutes, until all the water is absorbed by the rice. Drain the water and put rice in a bowl. Add the tomato sauce and mix. Season with parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

Allow the mixture to sit and cool to room temperature before handling. Have beaten eggs ready in a shallow bowl. Pour breadcrumbs into another bowl and set aside. Take the rice mixture and gather some in your hand. (Wet hands between making rice balls to keep the rice from sticking to your hands). Cup and form into a bowl. Push a piece of the mozzarella cheese into the center of the rice ball and reshape. Roll the rice ball into the eggs and then place into the breadcrumbs to coat. Repeat the process if desired for a thicker coating. Repeat until all the rice is used.

Place the formed rice balls into the refrigerator for several hours or overnight to set. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Place a few rice balls in at a time and cook until golden on all sides. Place on rack to drain. Repeat with all rice balls. Serve and enjoy.

Dear God Q & A Ministries

Dear God, On The White House Blog, I read the following: Yesterday, during an interview with ABC News, President Obama said, “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” It’s no secret the President has gone through some soulsearching on this issue. He’s talked to the First Lady about it, like so many couples do. He’s heard from folks - gay and lesbian friends, staff members in long-term, loving relationships, as well as brave young servicemen and women he got to know through the fight to end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He’s sat around his kitchen table with Sasha and Malia, who have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. As the President said during the interview, “it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them. And frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change of perspective — not wanting to somehow explain to your child why somebody should be treated differently when it comes to eyes of the law.” In the end, the President said, he believes it’s important to “treat others the way you would want to be treated."We need to recognize that people are going to have differing views on marriage and those views, even if we disagree strongly, should be respected. It is quite interesting to me that President Obama, who confesses to be a follower of Jesus Christ and a born again Christian, never mentioned that he sought counsel from God on this issue. In the following passages it states: Proverbs 19:21 “Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand.” Romans 11:34 “For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, OR WHO BECAME HIS COUNSELOR?” Proverbs 21:30 “There is no wisdom and no understanding And no counsel against the LORD.” Psalm 33:11 “The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.” The authoritative Word of God is the ultimate counsel that we as Christians must keep hold of. The Word of God will never change; it is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. We will all stand accountable to that Word one day, as will President Obama. I pray that his soul searching be done by God and not swayed by man. Standing firm in the Lord, Michael

Prep work makes weeknight dinners easier There is often no denying how busy the week can be for the average individual or family. Very frequently people eschew cooking dinner simply because they find the process takes too much time out of their already hectic days. Some people look to fast food or dining instead, but this can be costly and potentially unhealthy. Though home cooking can be time-consuming, planning ahead for weeknight meals can drastically reduce the time it takes to whip up a good meal. While it may seem like people are spending more time eating out, statistics point to the contrary. In a 2009 survey sponsored by CBS News, 43 percent of American respondents said they cook 6 to 7 nights out of the week, and 32 percent of the respondents said they cook 4 to 5 nights out of the week. Individuals who are still dining out

or ordering in instead of cooking may benefit from the following timesaving tips. * Make a meal schedule. Take a cue from schools and office cafeterias and create a weekly or monthly meal calendar. Come up with items you enjoy eating and combine them for meals. Use cooking magazines for inspiration if necessary. Having a schedule of what you will be cooking enables you to shop for the ingredients in advance and to know exactly what you'll be serving each night -- two time savers. * Create a detailed shopping list. Use the meal calendar to make a list of the ingredients you will need for each meal. Some ingredients will overlap (i.e. fresh spices, like garlic and parsley), but there may be some ingredients unique to a particular recipe. Buying all of the ingredients in advance enables you to have them

on hand when it's time to cook, instead of running out for something that is missing. * Do preparation work on the weekend. Spend a few hours prepping food over the weekend for the upcoming week. If vegetables need to be diced, do so then and store them in zip-top plastic bags. Meats that take a long time to cook can be pre-cooked and simply reheated before being served. Certain meals, like casseroles and baked pasta dishes, can be made entirely and stored in the freezer. Having some of the work already done may help to make weeknight meals easier to cook. * Invest in a slow cooker. If you prefer a hot meal right after walking in the door, a slow cooker can be an invaluable tool that delivers meals-ondemand. A slow cooker works by cooking ingredients at a very low temperature over a long period of time. Ingre-

dients can be added in the morning before you leave for work, and the meal will be ready and hot by the time you return home. There are dozens of different slow cooker recipes and cookbooks completely devoted to meals made in a slow cooker. It is a versatile tool and one that can be an asset in a busy person's kitchen. * Think outside the meal box. Dinner doesn't necessarily have to consist of "dinner" foods. Turn pancakes, eggs and sandwiches into heartier meals with the addition of a few ingredients. Omelets can be enhanced with cubed meats and vegetables. Top pancakes with fresh fruit and granola for a more substantial meal. Paninis are popular these days, so take an ordinary sandwich and make it gourmet just by pressing it and heating. Taking the time to plan ahead for meals means that weeknight dinners can be less stressful to put together

Give Us A Call! Buying a home? Avoid these mistakes The dream of home ownership is one that lives on in spite of the global economic struggles. The process of buying a home can be an emotional roller coaster ride, with feelings of excitement mixed in with exhaustion, fear and uncertainty. Over the last several years, the real estate market has been turned upside down, and many prospective buyers have begun to question some of the conventional wisdom associated with buying a home. While such skepticism might be a healthy attitude in the current market, prospective buyers -particularly those who have never purchased a home before -- should

avoid the following mistakes that buyers make regardless of whether the market is up or down. * Failure to get qualified beforehand. Mortgage qualification is essential when buying a home, as it gives buyers preapproval for a loan before they make any offers. Making an offer on a home before you know what the bank is willing to lend you is a waste of time for everyone involved, including you, the seller and the real estate agents involved. Some agents will not show a home if you don't have a preapproval. Once preapproved for a loan, don't take any steps that might put that approval in jeopardy. This includes anything that might drastically alter your credit score. * Being blindsided by additional costs. First-time homebuyers, once they have moved into their home, often experience some sticker shock when the additional expenses associated with home ownership arise. These additional expenses include property tax and insurance costs and can be substantial. Even those buying a condominium or co-op should expect monthly maintenance fees even if their new place is brand new and needs no maintenance. * Shooting for the moon. The ongoing recession is in part the result of predatory lending that saw

banks grant excessive loans to applicants who, in hindsight, could not actually afford all that they were approved to borrow. The result was many people buying homes they could not afford, and then suffering some steep consequences, including foreclosure, when the first mortgage payment came due or the interest rate rose. First-time and even veteran buyers must avoid shooting for the moon when it comes to buying a home, and instead only buy one they know they can afford. What the banks says you can afford isn't always the same as what you know you can afford. Only buy a home you know you can afford, regardless of whether the bank has approved you for a larger loan. * Pigeonholing yourself into an inadequate living situation. Just like buyers shouldn't go overboard, they also must avoid compromising on the things that are most important to them. For example, many of today's buyers, fully aware of the rash of foreclosures and all the housing horror stories of the last several years, are reticent to commit to a home, and might compromise with a condo or co-op. But if a home is what you really want, and another living situation that mirrors apartment life is going to make you miserable, don't settle for that situation for the sake of security. Doing so could cost you financially, especially when you realize the situation isn't what you'd hoped for and look to sell earlier than is ideal. * Skimping on the cost of an inspector. An inspector is your last chance to find out if a home is your dream home or a money pit. Even if a house appears to be everything you want, don't close on the sale until the house has been thoroughly inspected. The old adage that advises against judging a book by its cover certainly applies to buying a home, and prospective buyers should enlist the services of a qualified inspector before closing on the sale of a home.

Bathing suit season is on the horizon and summer fun might drive some into a panic. However, there are bathing suit styles that enhance what you want to show off and conceal what you want to camouflage. The first step in choosing a bathing suit is to make an accurate assessment of your body shape. Stand in front of the mirror without any clothes on and figure out which features define your physique. Perhaps your bust is large, or you have more curve in your hips. Maybe you are tall and lanky. Taking note of your body will help narrow down your swimsuit options. Next, go through your current swimsuit collection and find out which bathing suit you've worn in the past has

best suited your shape or earned you a few compliments. You may want to choose the style that is the most comfortable and supportive. When selecting a new suit, choose one that is similar in cut to your favorite. Swimsuits are designed to fit snugly and are made from elasticized fabric. Chlorinated water or saltwater can either shrink fabric over time or allow it to wear out and sag. Be honest about your current clothing size and consider buying a swimsuit in one size larger so it won't cut off your circulation or make you appear uncomfortable. You also want to be reasonable about which styles you can wear. That will be dictated by shape and also by the activities you plan to do in the swimsuit. For

example, if you live an active lifestyle and surf or play water sports, a supportive, one-piece style swimsuit may be a smart choice. If you have a large bust or one that is extremely small, you may want to avoid revealing bikini tops, which may look overly filled or not filled out at all. Here are some other tips based on body type. * Plus size: Choose a one-piece style that features a single color that is the polar opposite of your skin tone. Fairskinned people should look for darker colors, while dark-toned individuals should select brighter colors. Try to find a suit that is fitted at the waistline to slim you in this area. * Short legs: High-cut leg openings on swimsuits help to elongate the legs and make you appear taller.

* Small bust: Select a bikini top that has triangular-shaped cups, ruffles or a tie-front to add a little bulk to the area. * Large bust: Choose a top that comes with a supportive bra -- those mesh bras in most bathing suits won't keep the breasts contained and supported. Many bathing suit manufacturers now offer swimsuits with more substantial bras inside. * Pear shape: Emphasize the top of your body with a bold color or pattern and downplay the bottom with a dark shade. * Short torso: Select a two-piece suit that draws attention to the chest and shoulders and a bottom that sits lower on the hips to elongate the torso. There is no right shape when it comes to wearing a bathing suit. It's possible for anyone to look flattering when hitting the beach or lounging poolside.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You National Egg Month more incredible than ever Beat the heat with salads with eggs May is National Egg Month, it’s an important time for your family to eat high-quality protein at meals. The all-natural protein in eggs can help your kids perform their best on big days, when it matters most. And, with recent USDA data showing that one large egg is now 14 percent lower in cholesterol (down from 215 mg to 185 mg) and 64 percent higher in vitamin D, there’s no excuse not to get cracking. “National Egg Month is a terrific time to take a closer look at eggs — they are a good source of high-quality protein and contain 13 essential vitamins and minerals, all for just 15 cents apiece,” said Dr. Mitch Kanter, executive director of the Egg Nutrition Center. “Choosing eggs for breakfast is an easy way to deliciously — and nutritiously — celebrate.” Once hard-boiled eggs are cooked and peeled, most recipes have prep times under 10 minutes. For tips on hard-cooking eggs, more incredible recipes and nutrition information, visit or

Be safe with fireworks this season Fireworks are synonymous with summer. They mark special occasions, festivals and warm-weather holidays like Independence Day. When handled by professionals, fireworks can be quite the spectacle. However, if lit by amateurs, fireworks can be very risky. Though they offer awe-inspiring views, fireworks can be dangerous. According to data collected in 2008 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 7,000 people in the United States were treated in emergency rooms for injuries sustained from fireworks during the period of June 20 to July 20, 2008. Nearly half of all people injured were children under the age of 15. Most injuries occurred to young people under the age of 20.

The Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program states that fireworks injuries often occur around the injured patients' homes, and fireworks injuries require hospitalization far more often than injuries that do not involve fireworks. All types of fireworks have an inherent danger, even sparklers. Sparklers burn at more than 1,000 F and can ignite clothing very quickly. Those who take an active roll in the lighting and shooting of fireworks are more prone to injury. The most common injuries include burns and injuries to the eyes caused by cuts and foreign objects lodged in the eyes. Although fireworks injuries are common, they also are largely preventable. The following are a few safety tips aimed

at helping people avoid injury when enjoying fireworks displays. * Keep your distance. It is important for all people watching fireworks to keep their distance from explosives. Even the best-made fireworks can sometimes veer off course and fly into spectators. The further the distance away the display is, the better chance for safety. * Avoid amateurs. Professional fireworks companies know the ins and outs of fireworks and often have safety procedures in place. Fireworks may be ignited remotely by a computer or an electronic fuse device, keeping people away from ground zero. An amateur may not have the dexterity or skills to get away from the lit firework in time. When enjoying

fireworks, just make sure the person putting on the show is a professional. * Exercise caution around fireworks. Some people construct their own fireworks from spare parts or try to up the ante by adding an accelerant to achieve a bigger boom. These practices are dangerous and can lead to highly unpredictable explosions. It's never good to make your own fireworks show, but if you find yourself at a party where someone is experimenting with fireworks, exercise extreme caution. Fireworks can be a fun spectacle when handled by professionals in a safe manner. Families can consider watching a city- or town-sponsored fireworks display instead of risking injury with athome pyrotechnics.
