  • Couscous, vegetables provide a healthy meal

    Hello once again, my friends. We made it through the holiday season, and now, we are looking forward to spring. The thoughts of warm weather and green grass are dancing in our heads.

    Ok, I’ll admit that’s not what’s on a lot of people’s minds. It is after the holidays so a good number of people are thinking about one thing: those pants that seem to have shrunk over the last month or so.

  • Make reading a part of your 2015 resolutions

    New Year’s Resolutions are everywhere! Some make it with us to the end of the year and some don’t. Reading more is one of my resolutions. It sounds crazy and I hear this all the time, “I would love to have your job; I love to read.” Unfortunately, unless it is reading reports or financial statements, I do not have much time to read at work. I do research all of the journals, reviews and recommendations to help provide the best materials that we can.
