  •  There is a new TV series called “Revenge.”

    The girl in the series is seeking to destroy those who wrongfully accused her father for something he didn't do, leading to his incarceration and death.  Revenge is one of the most primitive of human instincts. If we are unjustly criticized by someone we work with, made the victim in a crime we didn't commit, slandered by lies of others, or had someone we love taken from us by sensual actions of another, our gut response is to want revenge.

Children develop food preferences at an early age so the earlier and more often children eat vegetables, the better.

    Noise pollution ... there is so much noise always around us: the TV/radio/computer blaring, the dishwasher whirring, the washing machine sloshing, telephones jingling, traffic blaring, lawn mowers roaring and a multitude of other sounds are heard during our daily lives.

    Our world has become inundated with noisiness. It surrounds us in our homes, our vehicles, our workplace and in our leisure time.
