Life is NOT a Journey - Alan Watts

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. His philosophies seem to transcend ego, politics and limitations. His monologues have a powerful way of connecting distant abstract ideas with the present moment and his words have a unique way of putting life into perspective. Life is a gift.

Future soda? Micro-fermented, probiotic, water kefir brew

It's a 3000-year-old soda that is popular again. Water kefir is a natural ferment that was likely first discovered by shepherds who had led their animal to drink in high mountain springs in the Caucasus Mountains.

"The newfangledness of it is really that we've lost our culture in America. This is only newfangled to people that don't have access or a lineage that they're bringing forward of live culture fermenting of food," explains Tom Boyd.

Boyd, along with partners Jeffrey Edelheit and Deana Dennard, ferment their live beverages in what they call "the only kefir based microbrewery", a tiny shop in Sebastapol, California called the Kefiry. They use kefir grains (which aren't really grains, but bacteria and yeast that turn sugars into carbonation) to create their "enlivened" beverages that contain much less sugar than conventional sodas.

10 Ways To GRAB Her Attention Without Saying A Word 💁‍♀️ 👨

I can absolutely state that it's true about the body mimic. When I was a computer seller, I met a girl that wanted to check out a Dell gaming machine. I had just read Richard Boothman's book on convincing people, and damn she was beautiful. I did my best to help her, used all rapport I had (and body mimic) but she didn't buy anything. A few hours later, getting out of work, she was talking to a co-worker: she was a friend of him and actually worked at the same shopping center I did. A group of friends were going to a pub have a few beers and SHE invited me to go along. By the end of the night she reached across the table the group was sat to touch me when telling a story.

Mercedes GLB 2021 review - it's a half-price GLS! 🚗🚗🚗

This is the Mercedes GLB! And we’ll be the first to admit, we’re a bit confused… The new GLB sits below the GLC in the range of Mercedes SUVs, but it’s actually bigger and more practical than the ‘C! Confusing? We’d have to agree.

But given you can pick up this seven-seater from just £34,500, will it make the MUCH bigger GLS obsolete?! Well when you consider that the top-of-the-range petrol engine (the GLB 35) is a 2-litre turbo that produces 306hp and 400Nm, it just might! So is it the smarter choice for your family? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

A time in life for deep reflection

Yesterday, I turned 65 years of age – a time in life for deep reflection. What does it mean to enter into the last decades of one's life? We all die. And yet ,are we capable of comprehending the meaning of being? Some find religion as a solution to these age old questions. Others see religion as someone else's rodeo. Although I am not religious, I am spiritual. Ultimately, it is your destiny, your consciousness, that seeks to come to peace with the mortality we all share.
