Can you handle it?

After much thought and comments from the readers, I have decided to post the link to the video of the aftermath of the suicide bombing. I want to warn everyone that is quite graphic. I think there is even a part where you see a head. That raised the hairs on my arms. But, I do think that people need to understand what it means when there is a bombing. Remember that there are people who have to deal with cleaning it up. Imagine that being your duty. How would that change the way you saw the world? I can tell you that I have trouble eating after dissecting a rat in Bio class. I can't imagine being able to do anything after seeing and smelling the things at one of these scenes.

I found this link through Celestial Blue.

I can't take it anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Dean Edell

I met one of my heroes today: Dr. Dean Edell . Most of you probably don't know who he is (even though he's so famous!!) so let me tell you. Dr. Edell is a radio doctor. Every day between 1-2PM he answers medical questions on Bay Area radio KGO 810AM. I think he's syndicated nationwide so those in other regions of the US need to look up your local listings. Anyway, this summer I read his first book. It was amazing. So informative and puts health issues into perspective. Seems that most of America is afraid of living what with Heart Disease, Cancer, Diabetes, STDs, supplements, fat, hi-carb diets, low-carb diets, smoking, red meat, alcohol, marijuana, drugs, sex, depression, prescription madness, anxiety, aging, hair-loss, wrinkles, homeopathic medicines, healthy pregnancies, raising children, ADD, ADHD, Alzheimer's, vaccinations and on and on.....
Americans (I can't really speak for other nations since I don't know the culture in other parts of the world) seem so worried about what will end their life that they don't know how to enjoy living. Dr. Dean Edell spends the majority of his time trying to calm people's worries about health risks and reminds them to put life into perspective.

Anyway, I was listening to him yesterday on the radio and heard he was to do a booksigning near my home! So I rushed to the bookstore just in time to hear him answer medical questions and then sign people's books. He's gotta be like 60 years old but looks pretty good for his age. In good health and good spirits. It made my day!

If you have medical questions or concerns you should visit his website (which is linked both above and on the side bar) and most likely he has some information on the matter.

How does this sound?

Waking up at 730AM on a sunny summer morning in Tel Aviv and going on a long walk down the boardwalk. Come home to a nicely prepared breakfast filled with salads, humus, fresh pitas, eggs, ice-coffee and delicious sweets. Then, changing into swim-wear and sandals and going down to the beach to play smashball, sit in the sun reading, take a dip in the Mediteranean, people watch, bake until your skin is black. Come back home, take a shower and nap. When you wake up again, you get ready to go out. Tonight is a show followed by pubs or dance clubs. Whatever you want because it's all there, all in Tel Aviv. God, I can't wait till this summer.... The best part is, I will get to enjoy all this with my family.
