MAY IS A TIME OF CELEBRATIONS.

Check the local venues for concerts featuring the likes of Justin Timberlake and Loretta Lynn. Games for the sports enthusiast include the Tulsa Athletic, Tulsa Roughnecks, Tulsa Drillers and the Summit League Baseball Championship at Oral Roberts. Stroll through one of the nearby farmer’s markets for fresh produce at Cherry Street, Brookside, The Farm, the Rose District and Jenks to name a few. Besides the major festivals listed at the end of the magazine, there are lots of other events like The Breeder's Invitational at Tulsa Expo Square or fundraising galas like White Party Eleven benefiting Family & Children’s Services, and The Pawparazzi Gala for animals. May is also a time to celebrate strong women. All women including CEO’s, Entrepreneurs, Advocates, Teachers, and even Moms are the strong women making a positive difference in our community today and for a better tomorrow. The May issue features a group of women ‘Movers & Shakers’, a girl’s only weekend, and a

PEOPLE THINK ABOUT AND USE THEIR KITCHEN. IT SOLVES SO MANY PROBLEMS THAT HAVE EXISTED IN THE KITCHEN FOR MANY YEARS.” —SCOTT ANDERSON.


CAN A KITCHEN WORKSTATION TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE? One Tulsa manufacturing company believes so and is revolutionizing the way we think about and use our kitchens. Discover The Galley. With the remarkable progress in the kitchen, The Galley was created to make life more efficient and enjoyable in this part of the home. And it’s working. Now, highly functional and social kitchens revolve around the Galley Workstation. Scott Anderson, former senior executive at Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group and CEO of Anderson Capital Partners, saw the potential that The Galley had to completely reinvent the kitchen industry. He bought The Galley in 2014 and immediately  brought  in David Kotowsky, a plumbing design expert and owner of multiple businesses in Chicago, as a partner and to help completely re-engineer and re-launch The Galley product line. Since then, the company, headquartered in Tulsa, has expanded to over 100 products in its line. The Galley distributes its products through a network of over 300 Authorized Dealers in North America with international expansion planned for the near future. The Galley's growth has been impressive.  Homeowners incorporating one or more Galley Workstations freR.

quently express they never want another kitchen without "their Galley", and it’s the most-used appliance in their kitchen. They believe it’s a lifestyle change. Their reasoning?

+ The substantial basins with necessary Culinary Tools is a more efficient way to prep, cook, serve, entertain and clean because everything is in one central location.

+ Additional Culinary Tools optimize the Workstation to facilitate any project, whether it’s making sandwiches for lunches or hosting a soirée.  

+ Counters don’t get dirty because prep mess is contained where it should be ~ in the basin.

+ Clever storage options maximize the space below the Workstation, so the 'sink cabinet' is no longer a scary trap for cleaning supplies.

+ Multiple configurations are available: a stainless apron front, double-bowl Workstation, DryDock extension, (a built-in drain board that installs over a dishwasher next to the Galley), and custom lengths and depths—to name a few. With uncompromising commitment to customer service, The Galley will customize the Galley for your individual needs. "We will do anything we can to satisfy the needs of our dealers and their clients," said CEO Anderson. Constantly innovating, they’ve added two major product lines. The Galley Tap® is a world-class, ergonomic solid stainless steel faucet created to perfectly pair with The Galley Workstation. Manufactured in Italy, the Tap's 21" height has a 27" pull out spray, magnetic docking system and option for laminar or spray flow. The Galley Dresser® is a luxuriously elegant and highly functional statement furniture piece housing the Workstation and Culinary Tools. The Tap and the Dresser are stunning.  The Galley as a central workstation may make some skeptical because it’s too easy. The truth is, it IS a lifestyle change to a superior system from what’s existed for the last 90 years. It replaces an inefficient and antiquated approach with a contemporary one, reducing time spent cleaning, improving the prep area, and providing more moments with family and more togetherness.

The idea ... of a fountain of youth goes back as far as history records have been kept. It is the talk of myths and legends dating back to at least the days of Alexander the Great. It is no surprise that many people the world over want to stay young and healthy as long as possible while maintaining their youthful energy. The Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon thought he would find this fountain in what is present day Florida, but even he would be shocked by what researchers found in only four known water springs today. Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Garth Nicolson, has been researching the properties of these water sources after hearing many claims these waters held healing benefits when people drank from it. These claims go back centuries, and even wealthy celebrities have been known to visit these unique springs for their special benefits. The question is, could these springs truly be some type of “fountain of youth” or healing water source? This started a journey of discovery unlike anything he could imagine. “What we found was amazing, and we knew this was a life changing discovery,” Nicolson says. What his research uncovered after multiple tests from these sources was shocking. The water samples taken revealed these springs have one specific element to the water not found anywhere else naturally on earth. These waters contain large amounts of hydrogen. According to Nobel Prize winning scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi, hydrogen is considered the most powerful known anti-oxidant on earth. The significance of this discovery revolutionizes everything we know about water and its relationship with anti-oxidants. The scientific studies demonstrating the benefits of anti-oxidants are unprecedented when it comes to the number of benefits. Some of these benefits are the protection of cells in the body from dangerous free radicals that age our cells. These free radicals oxidize our cells internally much the same way metals rust and apples turn brown when exposed to air. These free radicals are found in our environment and the food we eat everyday thus leading to increased aging of the body, with some becoming chronically ill. Drinking hydrogen enriched water, floods the cells of the body with anti-oxidants and protects them from the aging process. These anti-oxidants can also be found in a host of fruits and vegetables, but water is the most effective delivery system for these anti-oxidants to reach our cells because of the molecular properties of hydrogen in the water. Japanese scientists have also taken note of this discovery, and the people of Japan experience some of the best health and longevity of any country in the world. One company has even pioneered a patented way to have this hydrogen rich anti-oxidant water for home use. The device was also awarded numerous patents world-wide, and has produced such great results it is even used in hospitals across Japan. It is estimated that as many as 20% of households in Japan now also use this exciting technology. Using their innovative process, anyone can now have access to this life changing water and experience the benefits. Many individuals that have struggled for years with the debilitating pain from gout, arthritis, inflammation, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and a host of other issues have reported amazing benefits from drinking this unique water. Some have reported feeling younger and having more energy throughout the day. Others have reported healthier skin and hair after using this special water. After experiencing some of these benefits first hand Brent Nicholson and his wife Rhonda founded a local green country company called IO Pure. They are very passionate about helping others and spreading the word about this unique water “I find a lot of people are worried about what is in their water and whether it is safe to drink or not.” “I also find others are looking for relief from chronic issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, and arthritis,” Brent says. If any of this sounds interesting, looks good, or just feels right, you can call 918-280-8825. Article Jeff Thompson
