official: spring is here! The snow is melting,
and the ground has made its appearance again.
Nevertheless,we patiently endure the last remnants
of winter. Would you believe ten inches of snow on
April 1(no fooling!)? In the words of the famed poet,
Percy Blythe Shelley, 'If Winter comes can Spring
be far behind?' We'll see. We have had snow in
the snow melts and talk of gardening abounds,
I had planned to have a garden workshop for our April
meeting. However, our presenter had to bow out
unexpectantly. Therefore, I wiill be
'Healthy Show- and-Tell at this
HEALTH meeting instead. This presentation
a review of products, equipment, books, and related
items that support a natural lifestyle. I
address the subject of radiation and what
recent crisis in Japan may mean to you. This
meeting will not be taped for TV, so plan to join
us in person. Bring family and friends to
important, life-changing information. Details about
our HANDS-ON HEALTH meeting are
This month's feature article is entitled,
Health.' It is not the subject I had planned
but because of the unfolding nuclear radiation threat
originating in Japan, I felt compelled to educate
the role of the thyroid gland and how to best care
it. Statistics prove that over one third of the
population has thyroid problems due to iodine
a deficit that predisposes serious health conditions.
These conditions are often overlooked, undetected,
or ignored even by medical professionals, a fact
that puts many Americans at risk. I encourage you
to take the message of 'Thyroid Health' to
and do what you must to care for yourself.

your well being. Also, in light of the crises in
I have added a page on our website to address the
subject of nuclear radiation. Compiled on this page
is an assortment of articles, videos, and audios that
will help educate on this serious subject. While no
one knows what the affects the Fukushima meltdowns
will have for any of us, we do know that nuclear
radiation poses a serious health threat. Therefore,
personal preparedness may be in order. For more

weather warms, the gardening season is upon
us. At present, we don't know what the season will
mean for us. With food prices rising, food safety
concerns, and food availabilty questionable, planting
another garden sounds like an obvious, good choice.
Nevertheless, in light of growing levels of
fallout from Japan now circling the globe, gardening
may not be possible. To plant or not to plant. That
is the question. Though we have our seeds in hand
and the ground is thawing, I survey the yard and talk
to Father to know His mind in all this. In good
I have begun our 2011 Garden Log and invite you
to follow our growing progress wherever it may
take us. Our small beginnings are posted here.
By way of update, we expect to schedule another
Atlas Awareness event soon. As it turns out, our
AtlasPROfilax friend, Christine, is currently
so the venue has been pushed back until early summer.
Stay tuned for details.
closing, we LIVING-Wayers continue to swing
high in the kitchen with our usual accent on exellent
eating. Dehydrators and sprouters are still humming
along as I sharpen my culinary skills by turning out
new taste treats. We are happy to celebrate being
healthy and hope that you feel the same. Life is
what we make it. Therefore choose a quality of life
that is worth living. Eat right to live
the ravages of sickness, pain, and disease. Prove
to the world that there is more to life than managing
health problems. Be a living testimony that
don't have to be sick!'

The thyroid gland is one of the
glands in the body, but do you know what it is,
where it is, and what fuels it? Statistics prove
that over one third of the earth's population is
unwittingly suffering from a malfunctioning thyroid
gland, a condition that makes that is known to
cause fibrous cysts, cancer, Alzhiemer's disease,
obesity, fatigue, hearing loss, birth defects, and
more. To avoid being a candidate for thyroid
fallout and facing a possible future meltdown
in your personal health, read on.
