Driving...Driving...Driving

Lots of driving these past couple of weeks. Starting with four hours north to visit my friend Michelle and pick up some chicks and ducklings for myself and another poultry friend, Rose.
The header pic is my co-pilot, Mysti.

I ended up driving back with a Zoo in my Subaru ...haha
Some of the cuties I brought back:



The second trip was 4 hours South with Stephen. A little time away from the homestead and we picked up our Azure Standard order (I place them twice a year). Organic products from bulk grains to snacks to personal care products. They have drops in most parts of the country. The prices and quality are GREAT.

I have created a Keeping it Real with Janean YouTube channel. It is still a work in progress. I am gradually adding all of my podcast conversations. Still have to research how to transcribe each conversation so there will be a document for those who want to read.

MY LATEST PODCAST CONVERSATION:



My latest podcast conversation is At Risk Youth: Making a Difference with Tony Hopson

I met Tony while living in Portland, OR. My husband, Bill Harris, was a supporter of Tony Hopson's Center for Self Enhancement. Self Enhancement Institute (SEI) is an incredible program for inner city youth that grew out of Tony's desire to give back to the community. It started with summer basketball camps and grew into an architecturally beautiful center that houses a wide variety of programs for kids ages 8 - 18. Coordinators keep track of how their kids are doing and are available for them and their families pretty much 24/7.
Over 95% of the youth that stay in the SEI program graduate from high school and a large number go on to higher learning.
If you know anything about inner city schools and graduation rates you know that this is an amazing achievement and should be modeled throughout the country!
I have always admired and liked Tony. He is a genuine 'good guy'.
I know you will enjoy our conversation.

FOR ARCHIVED CONVERSATIONS I HAVE CHOSEN:



1. Dancing with Disease: How Re-thinking Illness Can Open Doors with Lavinia Magliocco
Enthralled with movement, music, and the human body from a early age, Lavinia Magliocco embarked on a career as a professional ballerina. She was derailed by illness at age 18, diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.

For decades she struggled with debilitating symptoms, underwent two surgeries, and was given drugs and treatments which created a roller-coaster of remission and illness.

In 1990, She discovered the work of Joseph Pilates. With the help of her ballet teacher and Pilates therapist she made a full comeback to the stage.

In 2004, she met an extraordinary teacher of QiGong, Tai Chi, Kung Fu. After practicing QiGong for two months, she stopped taking drugs for Crohn’s, and hasn’t had a recurrence since.

Lavinia was also diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014... a journey she also shares with us

2. Facing Fear in a Culture of Crisis with Dr. Jose Rodriguez
We are living in a culture of crisis...'Fake News' and outright lies have almost become the norm.... what is fake news? It is a message of distortion with the intent to create in another a belief that you know is not true.

Your Healthy Yummy Recipe



Peanut Sauce
This is so yummy and easy. A Great sauce for many Asian dishes/ stir fries!

1 T Peanut Oil
1 T Toasted Sesame Oil
2 T Mild Curry Paste
1 C Smooth Peanut Butter
1 can Coconut Milk
1-2 T Soy Sauce
1 tsp Hot Chili Paste
1-2 T Grated Ginger

I find the easiest way to make this is to put it all in a tall container and using a stick blender, blend until smooth. Keep the extra in the freezer!
