Grandfather Clocks are Wonderfully Old-School

There’s something so traditional and majestic about a grandfather clock. Whenever I see one, I think about old Victorian homes or legendary castles. Like Wayne Manor in the Batman series. Grandfather clocks are from the days when craftsmanship and detail were important. Now people have digital clocks that are about as beautiful as metal and plastic. A grandfather clock just makes you feel more secure, as it chimes in to tell you when a new hour is starting. As the Rolling Stones say, “Time is On Our Side” – and a grandfather clock makes us feel like it’s really true.

Isagenix Day 13: Exorcising My Toxic Demons

Today I start Day 13 of my Isagenix 30-Day Program. This morning I weighed myself and I have lost about 15 pounds since I started the program almost two weeks ago. The cleanse part of the program has really started to make itself more evident. I think it takes several cleanse days to really start pushing those demonic toxins toward the door(s), and I can really start to feel them as they exit my body. These little devils are being exorcised and I am happy to say adios to them. I am starting to really look forward to my shakes every day. I’m now doing two shakes, eating snacks during the day and then having a really sensible, portion-controlled meal in the evening. Last night I had half a chicken breast with some salsa, a small salad, some baby carrots, a couple pieces of broccoli and some sugar-free, fat-free lime Jell-O for dessert. I went to bed completely satisfied.
