Other homes for your used stuff
After six months of cold weather and indoor hibernation, the weather is finally nice and warm again. Yes, spring is here. Spring is a time for a new beginning and a fresh start, for renewal and growth. For a lot of people this means it's time to do spring cleaning.

Lifelong learning made easier
For people who like to grow and mature intellectually and spiritually, learning is a lifelong process. We don't -- and shouldn't -- stop learning just because we have graduated from high school, college or have a doctoral degree in hand. Many methods and opportunities exist to help...

True health care
In my April 2 column, I shared some personal opinions about doctors and health care. My point is we have to take more personal responsibility and play a more active role when it comes to our health care. The term health care, as used in our everyday life, is really a misnomer. When...

A health care skeptic's thoughts
The headlines in March 18 Twin Cities newspapers reported that a local hospital removed the wrong kidney from a cancer patient. Instead of the cancerous kidney, a healthy kidney was removed. Thank God that this kind of major tragic medical error doesn't happen every day in our...

Delay gratification for more appreciation

Get fit with yoga in the new year
If you are one of those people who make New Year's resolutions, I bet exercising and getting fit are probably on your list. In our modern society, where a sedentary lifestyle dominates our daily living and so many people are obese and out of shape, this really should be on the top...
