Skating in Washington DC in May, 2014

  “Adventure is not outside man; it is within.” George Eliot.   What would be our life if we did not take risks? If we did not seek adventures? If despite all odds, we did not pursue something that is challenging, daring, but turns out to be one of the best moments of your life? I am talking about my recent trip to Washington DC. It was not about sightseeing even that I would have enjoyed doing the same tours I had taken when I had visited DC in 2009. It was about adventure! It was about sports! As you already know, I...

The Great EsSkate 2014 in Miami Beach, FL – Adventure, Fun & Sports

  “Sports do not build character. They reveal it.” Heywood Broun.   Nowadays it is becoming more popular to do some sports. Some do it for building better physique, some – for improving health, some – for developing self-discipline, and some – just for fun! I tried a few sports: running, cycling, horseback riding, going to gym or bootcamp, training at home with dumbbells, doing yoga and pilates… Some sports require more investments than others – into gear and rigorous training sessions. Some...

Weekend in Tampa Bay: Monthly Family Fun Event at Water Buffalo Italian Cheese Farm!

  “Cheese is milk’s leap towards immortality.” Clifton Fadiman. Those of you who are looking for local natural and organic products (cheese, meat, herbs, beverages, beer and wine) may get interested in the event that takes place once a month at a Water Buffalo Farm. I met Antonio Casamento, a host of the event and an Italian cheese making business owner, earlier at one of the Fresh Markets in Tampa Bay Area, and was very impressed by the quality of cheeses (Mozzarella, ricotta) and yoghurt made of Buffalo milk. Antonio...

Unique Jewelry JÓIA by Yanira Ramirez.

“There is nothing new in art except talent.” Anton Chekhov. I would like to share with you my discovery of a talented jewelry maker, Yanira Ramirez. I met her at the local market in Wesley Chapel, and was impressed by her jewelry. She is a frequent vendor at St Pete Saturday Market throughout the Florida season (early October through late May). There are many talented craftsmen at local markets, and Yanira stood out of the crowd with her statement pieces. You might have sensed from my previous posts that I enjoy discovering local...

“Rawesome” Meetup at Leafy Greens Cafe.

  “We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” Alfred E. Newman. Recently my friend and I decided to join a raw food meetup. We wanted to broaden our knowledge on healthy eating, meet like-minded people and share our experiences. Long before I developed interest in healthier nutrition, I thought of vegetarianism/veganism or raw foodism as of some extreme form of abstinence! As I started eating more fruits and vegetables, reading more on the...

Networking Monthly Event at the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber. Come to see and be seen.

I would like to share with you a brief review of the event I attended on the first Tuesday of December. My Massage Therapist, Molly Snow, invited me to join a monthly networking event – early breakfast at the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce. It is a great event for professionals and Small Business Owners. Molly joined the community not so long ago, and she thought I might wish to check it for myself. I was at networking events in the past, and before going I always had some subtle fear and several questions. Will there be many...

My Favorite Weekend Pastime – Visiting Fresh Market at Wiregrass

  What was paradise, but a garden full of vegetables and herbs and pleasure? Nothing there but delights. William Lawson. Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness. Letter from Thomas Jefferson to George Washington in 1787.   Food is one few things that people cannot do without. Debates about food have probably existed for thousands of years. What should be eaten, how much and how often, – these are all choices each individual is making for himself...
