Insights into Becoming Totally Fit for Life! I appreciate your patience over the past week and a half. It’s been grueling. The drive between Michigan and Florida is twenty-plus hours, not including stops, so my body hates–yes, HATES–being stuck in a vehicle that long.

Is There a Veil between the Living and the Dead?

Is There a Veil between the Living and the Dead?

Most adults fondly remember Halloween as a fun time to dress up in costumes of all sorts and go from door to door begging for sweet treats.
