I went and saw Avenue Q at the Hippodrome last night and what an amazing performance. Sometimes you forget how many neat things there are to do in our neck of the woods. Kudos to the actors, actresses and performers who did a great job!
Did you know that 70% of your longevity is determined by your lifestyle? So, in a way, you are in control of your destiny. Taken together, all of the following lifestyle changes will help you live as much as 30 years longer. Here are tips from Dr. Sanjay Gupta's book "Chasing Life".
