Confession: I totally love kettlebells. I like walking, I like running, there is definite pleasure to lifting other kinds of weights. I despise all machines, including treadmills and ellipticals. But I LOVE kettlebells.

Oh, Froggy went a-courting and he did ride … in a big, green plastic box that is an environmentally sustainable answer to the eternal cardboard conundrum. Dragon Den‘s Jim Treliving has a stake in this Vancouver-based company, so it must be a good thing, right?
Nutrition is a really complicated, nasty, multi-layered issue. So I had a few things to say about it. Go see in the newsletter archives what’s missing from the picture. Sign up for the newsletter so you get it every week. Hit reply and talk to me. If this whole thing isn’t about conversation, what is it about??
One of the joys of the temperate climate is that mysterious plant called rhubarb. Its origins go back almost five millennia – the Chinese used it for its medicinal properties, but it also grows thickly on the banks of the Volga.
It’s another newsletter edition! Click on the image to see a larger version. I’m talking about ways in which we can convince our screaming inner toddler to go to sleep already. Not with coercion but with love.
If you are interested in a conversation about the ways in which we can calm that toddler and learn and grow, sign up for the newsletter – there’s a form right in the sidebar. You can see the ones you missed in the archive, but it is more fun to get your own! Especially as we can then converse by email rather than having to post a comment here on the blog. Just easier and more personal.
You’ll also get a roundup of the week’s blog posts, in case you were relying on Facebook or Twitter to let you know when a new one comes out. Apparently Facebook is now only showing content to about 7% of a page’s followers.
But I think that’s the subject of a whole other rant … nu, so join the newsletter already.
