And from the great Irish mystic Lorna Byrne: "Christmas is a time to put aside any differences or irritations within our families and our community. Let us all try this Christmas to open our hearts even to those who we may have had rows with or not talked to for years. Sometimes families have fought over things which on reflection are quite trivial, families have fought over money, over things said or done. Sometimes after a marriage break up or a divorce people can end up quite isolated – even homeless. This is a time for opening your heart – and your door and welcoming people in... By making someone feel wanted this Christmas, by showing them some love you can give the gift of hope this Christmas – you can be a lifeline to someone by reaching out with a pure heart and expecting nothing in return." 
While the Western New Year is coming up in just 2 short days, the Chinese New Year does not begin until late January for 2012. 2011 is the year of the rabbit; in a few weeks we will be moving into the year of the dragon. More information to come closer to time...

But happy New Years all!

Man, this warm winter weather has been nice, but has been creating a lot of interesting ailments for people! There's been a common symptom combination of cough, headache, and chest congestion the last week, and the week before sore throat, malaise, nausea and headache. So if you've been feeling these things you're not alone! We've been giving acupuncture to people, but have found herbal formulas to be the most effective for these ailments. At home a good thing to help the lungs and chest are steamed pears with honey and ginger. And of course for sore throat gargling salt water often helps!
Just read an amazing article about a Frankfort errand service an old classmate of mine Ron Moore has started. This is wonderful for people who need a little help when they can't leave the home or for people who are too busy to do everything they need!
