Eight years ago, my daughter Jasmine asked if she could audition for the Ahwatukee Foothills “Nutcracker” performance. She was new to the world of ballet and dance, but I relented, and she was thrilled to get parts as a Baby Mouse and a Mini Bon Bon. And the next thing I knew, her Saturday soccer games now had conflicts with “The Nutcracker” practice — called “rehearsals,” I was quickly corrected. I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.

Who you are and your life depends on your past, your community, your neighborhood, your childhood, your parents, etc. This can be summarized by calling it your “circumstances” or your situation.

Face it — sometimes aging just stinks! You are tired, feel worn down, your muscles hurt, you feel crabby, have a hard time sleeping and your libido is in the tank. All of these symptoms are part of aging, an inevitable, natural process that involves many different systems in the human body. These include the endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems. The diseases that are so often tied to aging usually affect one or all of these systems. Menopause, hypothyroidism, low testosterone, autoimmune diseases, heart disease and arthritis all are examples of age-related conditions.
The noises that your loved ones make while they are sleeping may be telling you a story. Snoring and grinding of teeth are two very common sounds heard by spouses, parents, and loved ones. The National Sleep Foundation (NSL) states that snoring affects 37 million Americans on a regular basis, and multiple studies have found that 17 percent of children snore. According to a 2005 study by researchers at Children’s Hospital in Boston, more than one-third of parents reported they hear their children grind their teeth at night. The NSL reports that 8 percent of adults are heard grinding their teeth at night.

Movie’s over. Goodnight, everybody!
“Kick-Ass” was one of those movies that seemed to have everybody split. Either you found the film morally reprehensible or you soaked up every minute of the film’s colorful violence and profanity. Personally, I was among the latter group.
