Guest, Dr Michael Roizen
In keeping with the title of his bestselling book – Real Age: Are You as Young as You Can Be? - Dr. Michael Roizen wants to help people keep their youthful vigor long past the point when it all too often fades. Simply put, he wants to guide them towards putting a gap between their biological age and their real age which can be determined by filling out a survey.
This survey not only - takes into account the usual suspects - blood pressure, cholesterol level, blood glucose level – that are thought to be markers of somebody’s physical health. It also calculates into the equation whether somebody has a pet or regularly spends time with friends and how many hours sleep they get.
And the best part: Dr. Roizen maintains that your real age is not simply determined by your genes. You can push into more positive grounds by learning healthier living habits. Suggestions that can help you move in positive directions abound on the web site.
Guest, Eddie Crothers
All too often, a well trained horse that was once a wonderful riding partner begins developing a bad attitude. A good horse has gone bad and the joy of spending time with her has become a thing of the past. After that happens, the horse might be taken to a trainer; the problem who “corrects” the problem or the animal might be put out to pasture until she “heals” herself over time.
When those two strategies have proved in effect, Eddie Crothers, an equine analyst, might be contacted in the hopes he can make that horse manageable. And often he can rise to that challenge by uncovering pain the animal might be experiencing, discomfort that prevents it from performing at its maximum. Crothers does not claim that he can perform miracles but he does point with pride to his record of “salvaging” horses. Their behavior has, for example, improved immensely after an aching back or an infected foot was healed.

A publishing journalist and a college instructor Harriet finds that these two careers have much in common as they both demand honing communication skills every day. Harriet instructs her students almost exclusively online and her writing is published in print and over the web. Times change but the need to speak to your audience by being concise, yet intriguing, is key.
