Top 10 Foods to Lower Cholesterol

Almonds are pretty hardworking nuts when it comes to lowering your cholesterol. First, they’re rich in unsaturated fats that help raise healthy HDL cholesterol while lowering unhealthy LDL. Second, these fats also help make LDL cholesterol less likely to oxidize. This is a fabulous thing, because when LDL oxidizes, it’s more likely to gunk up your arteries and cut blood flow to the heart. Snack away. But do keep an eye on portion size. Almonds are high in calories, and all you need are a couple of ounces a day to reap benefits.

In my mailbox: The Fun of Staying in Touch

Last week, I received an invitation from Author Marketing Experts, Inc.  (http://www.amarketingexpert.com/) to review a copy of Roberta Grimes‘ book The Fun of Staying in Touch: How Our Loved Ones Contact Us and How We Can Contact Them. The book arrived, and since it is raining, I devoured it in a couple of days.

I’ll let you know what I think of it in a couple of days.

Communicating with the dead is easier now than it ever was, and in fact your beloved may be trying to communicate with you right now! In the 21st century, you have many ways to connecting with the dead, including some that are new and evolving. The Fun of Staying in Touch is an exciting account of the wonderful and sometimes amazing ways in which the dead now let us know that they are happy and waiting for us in a glorious reality where love never ends.

This book is meant to be an overview for those with little knowledge in this field. Rather than footnotes, it includes a brief study guide and also a comprehensive list of resources that you might use to duplicate my research. And if you are curious about the place from which the dead are communicating with us, you might read The Fun of Dying – Find Out What Really Happens Next for a similar overview of the death process and the glorious realities that we enter at death.
