Bobby and I thank everyone for supporting this film …

Boyce and Hart Movie Poster

For a few years in the halcyon days of the sixties, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart were on top of the world. Singers, songwriters and producers, Boyce and Hart – individually or collectively – were behind some of the most enduring hits of that era or any other: “Last Train to Clarksville,” “(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone,” “Come a Little Bit Closer,” “Hurt So Bad,” “I Wanna Be Free,” “Valleri,” “Pretty Little Angel Eyes,” and of course, the immortal “Theme from The Monkees.” As if turning out hits for The Monkees and so many others wasn’t enough, Tommy and Bobby recorded three hip albums for A&M Records as a performing duo.  They reached the Top 10 in 1967 with “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonite,” which crackles with youthful abandon, energy and, frankly, a killer AM radio-ready hook. Yet the Boyce and Hart story isn’t as well-known as the team’s most famous songs…

Support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in Honor of My Friend October 7, 2013

I’ve supported my friend Rainey, Margaret’s (Peggy) daughter who will be walking in Honor of her Mom this Friday to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)

They are on the brink of incredible breakthroughs that have already begun to change the lives of thousands of patients; treatments that can manage a person’s condition with a daily pill, therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient’s own immune system to eradicate cancer not someday, but today.  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk funds those treatments.



Chocolate Lovers Rejoice! April 18, 2013

Health Benefits of Eating Chocolate

Chocolate has all but been elevated to superfood status. And the benefits of chocolate keep rolling in. So here are three more reasons why you may not want to be too quick to break that chocolate habit. (As long as you’re hitting the dark stuff.)

  • images (1)Chocolate makes you smarter. Ample research suggests that the flavonols in dark chocolate increase cerebral blood flow, which in turn may trigger the creation of new blood vessels and brain cells. And a new study shows that older adults performed better on cognitive tests after eating small portions of the sweet stuff. Talk about some major benefits of chocolate (and a nourished noggin)!
  •  Chocolate improves heart health. Although more research is needed to confirm this one, a new study shows that regular chocolate eaters who had heart disease were less likely to die following a heart attack compared with the people who didn’t treat themselves to the dark and dreamy stuff. 
  • Chocolate has a cavity-fighting compound. Okay, so you don’t necessarily want to trade in your toothbrush for a chocolate bar. But some interesting new research shows a compound in chocolate — theobromine — may be just as good as fluoride at hardening tooth enamel. So the compound could find its way into toothpastes and mouthwashes one day. Until then, keep in mind that most commercially prepared chocolate has lots of sugar in it.

Don’t Go Overboard Despite the benefits of chocolate, you don’t want to o.d. on it lest you do your waist and blood sugar more harm than good.

Just 30 calories per day of chocolate may be enough to help reduce your blood pressure. As far as serving sizes go, that’s about a Hershey’s Kiss worth.

But you have to eat the right kind of chocolate, according to Joseph Maroon, MD, author of The Longevity Factor. He recommendsproduct_151 nonsweetened or minimally sweetened dark chocolate that’s at least 70 percent cocoa.

Dark Chocolate: The Benefits
In addition to the chocolate and blood pressure connection, dark chocolate can also help reduce atherosclerosis and blood clotting, aid blood flow, contribute to an overall reduction in heart attacks, and improve cholesterol levels, according to Maroon. And it’s all thanks to the powerful antioxidants found in the cocoa bean.

More Good Reasons to Eat Chocolate
As if you need them . . . Maroon offers three more great reasons to indulge:

1. For better blood sugar. Chocolate enhances the effect of insulin and sugar utilization.

2. For a finer complexion. Yep, fewer wrinkles and fine lines.

3. For a better mood. The taste isn’t the only reason it makes us smile

87615739_XSIf you are selling your house, your real estate agent will probably suggest that you put together a few flower boxes to help dress up the front of your house. Most flower boxes are a mixture of tall and short perennials and annuals. Flower boxes are a terrific way to add a beautiful visual impact to any yard or porch. You can use them to line stairs; as a border on a concrete patio; or below a window.

The degree of sun exposure required by the plants is the main determining factor when deciding which plants are the best choices. There are flowering and foliage plants for every exposure, even the hot, harsh sunlight on the south side of a building. Selecting blooming plants and plants with colorful foliage that have similar growing requirements can provide color and texture all summer long.
