October 4, 2015 | By Dr. Michael Clarjen-Arconada | Living your life in a harmonious way that brings together personal, professional, family and community activities is a creative challenge we all face. We start as individual beings (persons) and invariably we end up asking ourselves: Am I enjoying the level of health I would like to have? What is health?

July 18, 2015 | Geoff: After college I worked for a money management firm. When I was twenty-five, Dad asked me to work for him full time as Operations Manager. I had no idea it would become a lifelong endeavor. My father was injured in an accident and became severely handicapped, relying more upon us to run the business, and we made it work. So, it was partly tragedy that brought us all into the business, but it’s worked out for the best.

July 18, 2015 | By Colin Ambrose Owner, Estia’s Little Kitchen | The criteria for an outstanding corner bar are rather simple: First, a happy, qualified, organized barman (or woman).

April 23, 2015 | By Colin Ambrose, Estia’s Little Kitchen | The basics are solid at Highway Restaurant and Bar. The space is large with many seating options for both large and small parties. The service is consistent and highly attentive. Best of all, there’s a meet-your-needs satisfaction in all of the dishes that emerge from the kitchen.

But run there as fast as you can if you crave a solid meal featuring well prepared comfort food sourced from the highest quality growers and suppliers. You will leave very satisfied…and you’ll come back for more.
February 23, 2015 | By Dean Silvera | This 1972 Porsche 911E Targa was rebuilt to perfection | Sports car Graphic Magazine said in January 1965: “Probably the biggest attraction in owning a Porsche is the mystique”. If you identify as a Porschefile, you know what that means! And it still holds true nearly five decades after the first model was introduced. 1965 model year cars sold for $5,995 USD.

February 23, 2016 | By Emmanuel Faccio, M.D. | Julia, a forty-one year old woman, recently came to my office and described herself as “feeling stuck”. “I’ve made so many bad decisions in my personal and professional life”, she said. “For a long time now, I’ve felt stuck, like I don’t know how to move forward”. Not surprisingly, when Julia arrived at my office she didn’t appear as someone who was thriving. She looked exhausted and depleted.
