DO YOU HAVE THAT WORK PLAY BALANCE? I’ve never worked for anybody, I’ve always worked for me. Today, if my kids are sick, I’m right there. I may have 5 pages to write, but instead I finished the dishes because my wife was up all night with the sick kids. So, you balance everything. It’s about prioritizing.

TELL OUR READERS WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR HEALTH RECENTLY. I almost died a year ago. They found out I had colon cancer.

HOW DID THE CANCER DIAGNOSIS CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

Article by: Sue London

ANSON WILLIAMS I had the honour of interviewing Anson Williams, also known to millions as Potsie Weber, from the hit TV series, Happy Days. I found Anson to be a personable, outgoing humanitarian. He truly inspired me.

YOU PLAYED POTSIE ON HAPPY DAYS, WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY? It’s not a favourite memory, because it wasn’t just playing a character. I was only 23 years old at the time. Now, it’s 40 years later and the cast has contributed to entertainment and social issues. All that was stimulated by Garry Marshall. He inspired all of us to not get in the way of ourselves and to appreciate being on this major movie lot. The show was great, playing Potsie was great, all that was fun, but it actually became a minor part of the experience.

YOU GAVE THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU WERE TRULY A FAMILY. DID IT FEEL LIKE YOU WERE? Yeah and also at the beginning, all of us took the opportunity and educated ourselves. I think that’s why we’re still effective in the 8

business because we learned to wear many hats, we saw many other areas that we were interested in and we perused that. We didn’t get lost in the icing of fame.

DO YOU HAVE ANY CHILDREN? I have five daughters. I have one that is married, two grandsons, four daughters still at home and that’s my focus in life. That’s a lot of work right there. My day is pretty much like everyone else’s as a dad, being a responsible parent.

I IMAGINE YOU’VE GOT A PRETTY BUSY LIFE STYLE. WHAT’S A TYPICAL DAY FOR YOU? I have been directing since 1985. I have directed and produced over 300 shows. If I haven’t been creating, I’ve brought in people to create problem solving products, within the last 20 years.

Today I am very lucky, cancer free and healthier than I’ve been in 30 years. However, it’s a determination, a mindset and living for more than yourself. I understand the importance of priorities and that was a wakeup call. We need to go back to the garden and go back to the beginning. Find yourself and find who you are. My family was almost poor, like lower level, we had a very small home with one bathroom. Deep down I knew I was something more, but I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Now that I’m older, I found out how important that tree was in our backyard, I never looked at it enough or appreciated it enough. It took me to go on this huge road in order to get back to the basics. I want to forward that to people and inspire them to think “I am okay” or “that’s where I want to go.”


I’M A FIRM BELIEVER THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS IN OUR LIVES FOR A REASON. CAN YOU TELL OUR READERS ABOUT YOUR LIFE CHANGING CAR ACCIDENT? Many years ago, I was driving outside of Los Angles in the local desert, doing a shoot. It was a very hot and exhausting day. Driving home, I blacked out and the next thing I knew, I was bouncing around in the desert and almost killed myself. I had fallen asleep for like 3 seconds. It was enough to get off the road. I’m so lucky I survived this. I didn’t crash, but it scared me. I called my uncle, Dr. Heimlich, who created the Heimlich Maneuver, he’s actually my second cousin, but I’ve called him my uncle since I was born. I told him my situation and he explained how the body helps the body’s sensory connection and all that, basically natural ways to heal. He was a genius. He explained to me that when I’m having a hard day, I should keep cut up lemons with me. If I start feeling exhausted, to bite into it hard and he explained how the citric acid of the lemon would hit the nerve on top of your tongue. The automatic reflex reaction of the body is adrenaline and then you would feel alert. No caffeine or anything. Just the body working the body. It’s no different than going to the doctor and he has his little rubber mallet and he checks your reflexes. Happy Days Cast

CAN WE GET THESE DROPS IN CANADA? If people go to AlertDrops.com, they can learn all about the product. It’s all natural, so nothing will hurt you. It’s very old science. We just found a way to make it civilized and educate people on how the body can help the body. There’s nothing in your system and nothing to screw up your sleep pattern. You can order them on our website and on Amazon, but there are problems with the shipping. If you go onto AlertDrops.com and write to the info e-mail, which is me, we can figure it out and get it to you.

WHO IS BUYING ALERT DROPS? People have found that construction sites in America have banned energy drinks and similar products and now they are buying alert drops. EMT’s, doctors, nurses and anybody that needs to be alert in their jobs are buying it. Kids are using it in classrooms before tests. Anybody that needs to be alert and clear, it’s great for. It suits your own body and makes it alert. No stimulants, no caffeine, nothing.

WHAT TIME DO YOU FIGURE PEOPLE SHOULD GO TO SLEEP AND HOW MUCH SLEEP SHOULD THEY GET? I don’t know what time to go to bed, but you need 8 hours. Early to bed, early to rise. The other thing is to not eat past 6pm. Get a good breakfast, smaller lunch, tiny dinner, so your body doesn’t have to work.

WHEN YOU SUCK ON THE LEMON, HOW LONG DOES IT WORK FOR YOU? It lasts 30 min to an hour. Everyone is different because everyone’s body is different. If it only lasts 10 min, take another hit, there’s nothing to hurt you. So, I did that for years and I never had the problem again. Then during those years, I had gone into the product business. I loved finding a problem and I loved creating a solution. So, I started researching drowsy driving. In 2012, the National Sleep Foundation did a study and at the time, there were 168 million drowsy drivers a year. Today it’s worse. One out of five people admitted to falling asleep. There are more accidents and deaths from this, than from medicated driving and drunk driving combined. If you lose 2 hours of sleep, it equals 3 beers driving.

THAT’S VERY SCARY. WHAT DID YOU DO NEXT? I called Dr. Heimlich and I said “because of this information you gave me years ago, I have an idea. What do you think?” I said, “what if we get the right amount of citric acid, with the right amount of sour lemon, a little water and a little preserve for shelf life. What if we just put it in a spray gel? What if we just spray the middle of your tongue?” He said, “Yes! Anson! That would be twice as effective as biting into the lemon. You’ll save more lives than the Heimlich Maneuver. Absolutely do it.” Then we did. It’s called Alert Drops.

Anson with Dr. Henry Heimlich

CAN YOU SHARE ANY LAST WORDS OF WISDOM? Be everything in life, be in life, don’t be of something and don’t hide behind anything. Take the time to find out who you are. Don’t get brainwashed in constant media. You know yourself best. Find yourself, take some quiet time and learn to meditate. Find who you are, you will find your own direction, you will find yourself and you will find your place. You don’t need all this icing, you need to find the cake. That’s the centre of who you are and what you are about. Dr. Heimlich always said, “we’re all going to die, all of us. The purpose of your living is to leave something behind that doesn’t die.” That’s what he did; he left behind saving lives. Leave behind something more, leave behind something purposeful and make your life meaningful. Make this place just a little better because you were here and let it continue on, to the hearts and minds of everybody you touch. COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA •

RECIPE

TURKEY KALE

MEATBALLS dding kale to your meatballs acts as a great binder and of course increases the nutrient profile enormously! Kale is a great source of calcium, Vitamin A, C and K.

DIRECTIONS

S T E P 01 Cover a prep sheet or tray with parchment paper. Heat a cast iron or stainless steel sauté pan on low heat. Make sure the pan has some sort of lid, it does not have to be a match but something that will work. S T E P 02 In a large mixing bowl, mix together the garlic, tomato paste, salt, paprika and pepper. Add the kale and mix well. Add the turkey and mix well.

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS • 1 pound of minced turkey • 1 cup defrosted frozen kale, excess liquid squeezed out before measuring, I use Cookin’ Greens (about 2 cups frozen) • 1 large clove garlic, minced • 1 tbsp tomato paste • 3/4 tsp sea salt • 1/2 tsp paprika

S T E P 03 Shape into 16 medium size balls. S T E P 04 Heat the olive oil in the pan and place the turkey balls in the oil, raise the heat to medium and fry on one side for about 2-3 minutes, flip and repeat. Add 2-3 tbsp of water to the pan and immediately cover the pan and cook for 8 minutes. S T E P 05 Eat on their own with the pan juices or add to your favourite tomato sauce. DELICIOUSDISH

• 1/4 tsp medium-grind black pepper • 3 tbsp olive oil for the pan NOT E: I usually defrost the frozen kale by leaving it out at room temperature for about 1 hour, or you can put it in the microwave, just make sure it is cooled before adding it to the turkey.

BOOK REVIEW

APRIL'S BOOK SUGGESTION

co-author and past editor of Simon & Schuster, Greer Hendricks. It goes without saying that The Wife Between Us is a page turner, but it’s more than that. It keeps us on the edge of our seats as the plot thickens and we realize that what we assumed to be true, is shrouded in mystery.

THE WIFE BETWEEN US BY PETA-GAYE NASH

petagayenash.com

R

umour has it that The Wife Between Us, will make it to the big screen. It’s no wonder. It has all the qualities of a great psychological thriller: suspense, mystery, drama and romance all in one package. It is the seventh novel by best-selling author Sarah Pekkanen and the first by her

CAPTURINGBETTERPH TOS

Written in the voices of two characters (there’s more to this but I can’t give it away), the book scatters hints throughout, but manages to keep all of its secrets to the end. It had me fooled with its many twists and turns, plots and sub-plots with culprits I hadn’t imagined. Authors Pekkanen and Hendricks have the winning formula for a best seller. If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll like The Wife Between Us.

By Peeter Poldre, Photographer Always learning and striving to CAPTURE the next great photo!

COMPOSING WITH THIRDS

or centuries visual artists have been aware of the “Rule of Thirds” (which is more of a guideline). An image is divided both horizontally and vertically into thirds (1). Important elements in the picture, such as the horizon or vertical structures, are optimally located on these lines. When taking a photo, it is a natural tendency for the subject to be placed in the middle of the frame, but at the time of editing or while actually taking the photo, the photographer may compose with thirds to enhance the final result. Horizons are the easiest to place along either the upper or lower horizontal third (images 2,3,4). In addition, dominant vertical structures (the tree in 4, the lighthouse in 5) can also be placed along either the right or left vertical third.

SATURDAYS

Greenest City and the Parkdale community hosted Seedy Saturday on March 3, at Bonar-Parkdale Presbyterian Church. Seedy Saturdays are annual seed exchanges, a series of gardening fairs and celebrations of seeds that occur during winter and early spring, throughout Toronto and beyond. The events originated in Canada in the early 90’s and have since spread across the world. Each Seedy Saturday hosts a seed exchange where people can donate, return or borrow free seeds and purchase seeds from local seed farmers.

04

Parkdale is a diverse community and our Seedy Saturday celebrated that. Aside from buying and exchanging heirloom seed varieties, there were interactive workshops, delicious food to sample as well as all things chocolate from ChocoSol. Children were kept busy with various activities and live music was playing while you browsed and shopped.
