In the news, (and there is little mention) it is been reported that Populations of wild animals have fallen by an average of 60 percent over the last few decades. That grim figure comes from the Living Planet Report 2018, published today by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The report concludes that populations of vertebrates - animals with backbones, including fish and mammals - fell 60 percent on average between 1970 and 2014.  "The collapse of global wildlife populations is a warning sign that nature is dying," said Tanya Steele, WWF's chief executive, in a statement. 

First map of Earth’s intact ecosystems shows just five nations are responsible for most of them ( Canada is one of the five) – but it will require global action to protect them Map

The animals of Earth are not only here for biological reasons. They are here to connect with us and help us in our lessons. Mostly, they help us to learn unconditional love and compassion, as we move towards peace on Earth. The true beauty of the animals of Earth and the reason why they are here – to help and support humanity while we develop peace on Earth.

November 2018 - Tip of the Month

Sun in Scorpio prompts us to turn within. Time to purge and purify, to clear skeletons and other shadowy entities out of hidden places. Venus retrograde re-enters Libra as the month begins bringing the romance back to the otherwise raw sexual desires of Scorpio With the Sun there and a trine to Mars on the 9th, romance rises. Mercury in Sagittarius turns retrograde just hours after Venus turns direct on the 16th activating a collective search for meaning. Uranus re-entering Aries on the 9th will put the pedal to the metal, again. Lunar North/South Node axis changes from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn on the 6th to begin a new 18-month cycle. BIG month!

BRUSSELS SPROUTS GRATIN (Gluten Free / 3 points)

Description:
Brussels Sprouts Gratin are the perfect Holiday side dish! The brussels sprouts are roasted until crisp, then topped with a light cheese sauce made with Gruyere and Parmesan, and baked until brown and bubbling. If you are as obsessed with brussels sprouts as I am, you’ll love these. This recipe can be made the night before and heated on the day. Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season. Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer. Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They are a very good source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.

QUESTION:
How can a woman approaching middle age get more energy?"

ANSWER:
Many women start to feel like they're dragging in their late 30s and 40s. They're losing testosterone, which may act as an antidepressant, and experiencing a flux in their levels of estrogen and progesterone, which may also influence mood and energy. One of the most effective tactics for perking up comes down to how you plan your meals. "Many of my clients seem to think that by filling one meal with energy-generating nutrients—say, a green smoothie for breakfast or a salad at lunch—they've done their duty for the day," says dietitian Ashley Koff. "But your body needs several energy pit stops so you can refuel." Koff suggests small meals every three hours that combine a variety of nutrients. Her energy-boosting meal plan:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with hemp seeds.

A.M. snack: Half cup of cottage cheese with berries.

Lunch: Half a turkey sandwich with salad.

P.M. snack: Half cup of tuna salad with wheat crackers.

Dinner: Wild salmon with non-starchy veggies

The history behind Ireland’s ancient Druids by Maria O'Farrell Carr
Who were the Druids? Today the word conjures thoughts of magic, wizardry and spiritualism, but in ancient times the definition of Druid was much broader. During the Iron Age, the Druids made up the higher-educated tier of Celtic society, including poets, doctors and spiritual leaders. The legacy of this last group is the most enduring and the most mysterious. The earliest evidence of the Druid spiritual tradition is from 25,000 years ago and is found in...
