Vitamix is an amazing machine
I highly recommend Vitamix ladies…. If I can use it, YOU can use it !!!!
Vitamix makes a super smooth vegetable or fruit smoothie. I used it this evening to blend sweet potatoes into a super smooth consistency that was so silky the mixture looked like pudding.
One of the most common questions by those looking for a traditional juicer is “can it make juice?”.

It is important to note that the vitamix is a juicer. The difference is you are not disposing of the skin or seeds which hold more of the nutritional ingredients. While other juicers extract the juice from the vegetable or fruit most of it is disposed of. With the vitamix there isn’t any waste, the entire fruit or vegetable is consumed. That’s right you are going to consume more nutrients. That is the point isn’t it?
Juicing is to extract the liquid part of an ingredient such as a fruit or vegetable. The advantage of the vitatmix is that you are able to extract more and dispose of less.
Soup is a liquid food made by boiling or simmering meat, fish, or vegetables with various added ingredients, which can be done using the vitamix as a standalone item. Nothing else is required.

Evergreen do you have children? I have met many people who pray for good health for their children What do you say to family members who pray and loose their children to sickness or accidents vs. someone who prays and their child is spared?
Two football players are playing on opposing teams for the championship. Each player is praying for their team to win. Whose prayer will be answered?
My teacher once explained that she had many people asking her to pray for them and their families. She said she is always willing to pray for them, however, she does not pray asking for a specific outcome. Her prayer is ‘for the highest good.”
When we pray for ‘the highest good’, we are acknowledging that we are part of a larger web of life. Our personal needs may not be for the highest good of all. Praying for ‘the highest good’ is acknowledgement of a higher power and acceptance of the present moment.
No one wants to lose a child, a spouse, or a beloved friend. Yet, praying for them to be saved or cured may not be in their highest good. I have heard cancer patients say that having the disease taught them so much about life and they acknowledge the beauty in that experience. Sometimes the patient is not the only one who learns valuable lessons from the situation. Many of the challenges we experience in life bring about beauty from the journey.
Our human journey is part of a grander cycle of life and death. We each play a part in that cycle, even when our part may be painful. No woman becomes a mother without being willing to endure the pain of childbirth. As the mother watches her children grow, she knows they will experience challenge in their lives. She laughs, cries and grieves along with her children, while at the same time, seeing them grow through their challenges and become amazing adults.
Prayer can be powerful and when we pray for the ‘highest good’, we let go of attachment. By letting go of attachment, we make space for many blessings to be received.
So, let’s continue to pray and in our prayers, may we give appreciation for the blessings we have in the present moment. When we lose someone we love, let us give thanks for the time we were able to spend with them and the lessons we learned on the journey.

So glad to see you are writing a column for us “baby boomers,” and being an advocate for Safe Sex in the Baby Boomer community.
I was floored to see how many of us have an STD. Well unfortunately I have a ‘personal’ situation here.
I am a single 45 year-old woman who was married for 25 years. My husband came home one day and told me he was not in love anymore and that he was in love with someone else! I was hurt, devastated and blown away to find out that the other person was a man!
Now I have no trust in men, relationships and am petrified of getting an STD from him. We didn’t use protection (of course because we were married for 25 years and didn’t think he was being unfaithful) and had sex up until he left me last month.
I am so scared and don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?
Scared and Bitter.
Dear Scared and Bitter,
First of all get to a doctor immediately. Unfortunately your husband may have put your life in danger by having unprotected sex with other people.
I’m sorry for your situation. It’s hard enough finding out your partner was unfaithful but to find out he was having sex with another man makes it ten times worse.
Even if you are clean now doesn’t mean he has not infected you with something and you should be checked every 6 months for a year or two.
As far as trusting a man again, you have every right to feel the way you do, but not everyone in this world is deceiving and disloyal.
Hopefully he was using condoms but that is still not 100% guarantee.
It will take time, but give yourself a chance of being happy again and finding a nice, loving and dedicated man. Get out there and take it slow. and most of all remember…”If you’re gonna play in the rain…you better wear a raincoat!” (Protected sex)
