70BC Virgil (Publius Vergilius Maro), Roman poet. Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modeled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfill his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy—in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably Dante's Divine Comedy, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.

How to Have Healthier Kids
The U.S. ranked No. 42 on children’s well-being, No. 61 on maternal health and No. 89 for political status—or the participation of women in national government. Among the other statistics, the report finds that an American child under the age of 5 is nearly just as likely to die (6.9 per 1,000 live births) as one in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovakia or Macedonia.
Working to affect this level of change is a whole different show, however there is a profound amount of change that you can affect in your own home regarding your children’s health.
1. Children learn by modeling, not by being told, so we must attend to our own health first.
2. You are not a short-order cook, kids eat what the family eats.
This keeps two things in check:
The nagging for something different, because this is no longer a choice. It will require an extraordinary amount of resistance on the part of the parent but you will be paid back tenfold going forward.
It keeps kids from eating what most typically becomes the default short-order edition of heavily processed home versions of fast food, chicken nuggests, mac’n cheese, cereal, pasta with catsup, what ever it is, no of which is good for any living thing.
3. Get kids outside, in the sun, getting vitamin D. 70% of kids are deficient. adults with low vitamin-D levels are at risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and a lot of cancers, and if kids start out with low levels and never increase them, they may be putting themselves at risk for developing all of these diseases at a much earlier age." Children with low levels of vitamin D were more likely to have high blood pressure and lower levels of high-density lipoprotein, also known as good cholesterol -- two factors that are considered major risk factors for heart disease later in life.
It is virtually impossible to get enough D from food so if you aren’t getting 15 minutes in the sun without sunscreen or are taking 400 IU daily, your likely deficient.
4. Plant a garden. It doesn’t need to be huge. So many kids today have absolutely no idea what a farm is, let alone a garden and thus have no idea where food comes from.
5. Limit computer games. When the rules came down about advertising to children, the advertisers just moved.
6. Point out advertising to your kids it helps younger kids learn to critically think and with tweens and teens it can be a game changer. They are seeking independence from being manipulated and controlled and if they learn that’s exactly what marketing is, they will reject it.
7. Start taking a quality probiotic, and give to your kids too (modeling)
8. Get kids in the habit of bathing, Bath time is a wonderful opportunity to bond with your child, but it's also a time to boost her health. Add a dash of Epsom salt to your child's bath water to soothe itchy skin and encourage a restful night of sleep. The practice will also address magnesium deficiency, which is linked to anxiety and insomnia.
How To Have A Healthy Relationship
If you’ve never experienced the notoriously horrible circumstances that prompt a call to an attorney, we are about to give you a standard by which to select one, for the attorney to advise you on how not to need them. So today, Chris Lombardo, a family law attorney gave us an insightful talk about how to not need his services, as only a successful divorce attorney could do. It is a must listen!
Chris begins by discussing what we should be noticing early on in relationships, like needing to talk youself out of saying something about the toilet seat not being put down, that have potential to become issues later because they will seem 10x's worse.
Time is going to pass and as time passes things change and as they change you must change with them or you will find yourself in a state of arrested development.
The most powerful relationship saver is actually talking to each other. Take responsibility for how you are feeling and also take responsibility for making it known. Everything will continue to evolve, so if staying in communication about what is and isn't working falls by the wayside, you can't expect your partner to know.
He spoke about how having kids in the mix changes the relationship and how to avoid the negative influences of that, as well as offering a clear understanding of what staying in a dysfunctional relationship teaches the kids as they grow into their own relationships.
How holidays are managed in healthy families that are hugely beneficial for kids.
Ultimately Its not about how the towels are folded, it's not about how pristine the garage is... its about staying connected.
If, however, you feel you've exhausted your attempts at connecting and are interested in finding out what the divorce process has to offer, call Chris Lombardo at Woodward, Pires and Lombardo at 239-649-6555, they've got you covered!
