I have done a great deal of research on the topic of COCONUTS
and have come to the conclusion that
Coconuts Are Amazing!
The two basic items necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut milk.
The coconut palm (also, cocoanut), Cocos nucifera, is a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family). It is the only accepted species in the genusCocos. The term coconut can refer to the entire coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which, botanically, is a drupe, not a nut. The spellingcocoanut is an archaic form of the word. The term is derived from 16th century Portuguese and Spanish coco, meaning “head” or “skull”, from the three small holes on the coconut shell that resemble human facial features. ~ wikipedia
The Coconut Tree has been commonly referred to not only as the“Tree of Life”, but also as the “Jewel of the Tropics”; “the King of Trees”; “Tree of Abundance”; “Tree of Heaven” and the“Signature Tree of The Tropics”. In Sanskrit, coconuts are called“Kalpa Vriksha”, which means: “the tree that gives all that is necessary for living”.
Potential impact on human health of this amazing natural coconut elixir:
“The recent discovery of other medicinal values of coconut water signifies a good potential in improving human health. Better insights and understanding of the functions and properties of the individual components of coconut water will, therefore, help us to better utilize this marvelous and multidimensional liquid with special biological properties from nature.” Jean Yong
Best “Sports Drink”
Along with plain water, coconut water is one of the best and safest option to rehydrate yourself after a strenuous workout. If you need the electrolytes, it will provide them. If you don’t need them, then it certainly won’t hurt you. And as you’re learning, coconut water has a mountain of other health benefits in addition to rehydration, which no commercial sports drink in the world can provide.
Quotes about the Amazing Coconut:
“He who plants a coconut tree plants food and drink, vessels and clothing, a home for himself and a heritage for his children”
- South Seas saying
“One of these nuts is a meal for a man, both meat and drink”
- Marco Polo
My mother was very strong. Once, she picked up a coconut and smashed it against my father’s head. It taught me about women defending themselves and not collapsing in a heap.
I’m just taking care of myself: Eating less, exercising more, drinking a lot of coconut water.
I drink a lot of coconut water. It balances out all the other toxic stuff I put into my body.

Exercise science is a fine and intellectually fascinating thing. But sometimes you just want someone to lay out guidelines for how to put the newest fitness research into practice.
The Scientific 7-Minute Workout may be just what the doctor ordered!
An article in the May-June issue of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal does just that. In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science.
“There’s very good evidence” that high-intensity interval training provides “many of the fitness benefits of prolonged endurance training but in much less time,” says Chris Jordan, the director of exercise physiology at the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, Fla., and co-author of the new article.
Work by scientists at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and other institutions shows, for instance, that even a few minutes of training at an intensity approaching your maximum capacity produces molecular changes within muscles comparable to those of several hours of running or bike riding.
Interval training, though, requires intervals; the extremely intense activity must be intermingled with brief periods of recovery. In the program outlined by Mr. Jordan and his colleagues, this recovery is provided in part by a 10-second rest between exercises. But even more, he says, it’s accomplished by alternating an exercise that emphasizes the large muscles in the upper body with those in the lower body. During the intermezzo, the unexercised muscles have a moment to, metaphorically, catch their breath, which makes the order of the exercises important.
The exercises should be performed in rapid succession, allowing 30 seconds for each, while, throughout, the intensity hovers at about an 8 on a discomfort scale of 1 to 10, Mr. Jordan says. Those seven minutes should be, in a word, unpleasant. The upside is, after seven minutes, you’re done.

I rapidly realized - It’s the tortoise life for me!
1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so.
I’m retired. Go around me!

Five Lessons to Be Learned From Aging
“Aging” – “Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works much better if the salt accompanies a large margarita.”
1. Things really can Get Better with Age
“By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it.” – Bill Vaughan
2. Never Underestimate the Power of Change
Being a Grandparent is a life changing experience, and you can make your own House Rules!
3. Look Good Feel Good
4. Attitude Is So Important
“So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.” ~ A.J.Materi
Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming… ‘Wow! What a ride!’
“Growing old is compulsory – growing up is optional.” – Bob Monkhouse

Lululemon Recalls See – Through Yoga Pants
Scandal or Cover-Up?
Our Behinds Exposed!
Are people seeing more of your assets than you’d like?
Everyone wants to get to the bottom of this story because it’s sheer madness!
I don’t believe Lululemon is being very “transparent” in its operations.
Sagging Lululemon stock is doing the downward-dog!
The sheer size of this Lululemon cover-up is not clear yet,
butt many accuse Lululemon of not revealing the whole truth!
The “ingredients, weight, and longevity qualities of the pants remain the same, but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards,” ~Lululemon spokesperson.
How do you know if you have defective transparent Lululemon Yoga Pants?
There is a simple test!
“The only way to test for the problem is to put the pants on and bend over,” ~ Lululemon CEO Christine Day
And I’m not too clear on why everyone is getting bent out of shape over this.
Sorry, just my cheeky sense of humor
Lululemon Recall Update:
Lululemon’s chief product officer is leaving the retailer, just weeks after it pulled its black Luon pants from store shelves because they were too sheer.
Sheree Waterson, who joined the company in 2008, will be gone as of April 15.
“We appreciate the many contributions that Sheree made during her time with Lululemon, particularly in the area of design,” said chief executive Christine Day in a release.
Specific reasons for Waterson’s departure were not disclosed.
Sounds too much like sheer!
Meanwhile, the company said an investigation into the production issues with the popular Luon pants has revealed that a combination of the fabric with a new pattern led to an “unacceptable level of sheerness.“
“Production of Luon is a complex process with a number of different inputs, and fabric is the key factor,” Lululemon said in a statement.
“While the fabric involved may have met testing standards, it was on the low end of Lululemon’s tolerance scale and we have found that our testing protocols were incomplete for some of the variables in fabric characteristics.”
As a result, the company said it is testing and assessing all Luon products to ensure they meet “revised specifications for modulus (stretch), weight and tolerances.”

Making any new year resolutions for 2013?
For those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health.
It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans..
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
