  • In selecting a topic for this week I did some soul searching about how and why I, as a senior citizen, find it difficult to stick to any New Year's resolution regarding a diet plan or new healthy eating habits and exercise. Any nutritionist or doctor will tell you that dieting is pretty much a "quick fix", most of the time, and then the pounds return once you reach your goal weight and slowly slip back into your old eating habits. Changing your eating habits and developing a reasonable exercise program are the keys to successful weight loss and keeping it off.

  • One of the things I did at the beginning of this new year is organize and file away resource information. While reacquainting myself with this literature, I found some bits worth passing along.

    One article, written by Anne Mackay, features winter gardening. While northern gardens may remain untouched for several months, here in Florida it's already time to think about spring plants. Mackay's article focuses on native Florida wildflowers.

  • Thomas Edison once said "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Don't miss this opportunity to assist the Levy County Public Library System in the formation of their Long Range Plan for 2008-2013. It will only look like work as it will be as easy as sharing your opinions.
