By Nancy Secrist-Owner, Easdale: The Best Pet Care
 
Between the hotel reservations, transportation, and itinerary details, summer getaways can be a bear to plan. One consideration that often gets put off until too late is what to do with your furry friends when you hit the road.
 
Boarding facilities provide welcome stimulation and caring interaction for your pet, and are generally a healthier, more nurturing option than just hiring a neighbor to pop in and feed it, leaving it alone, bored, and possibly frightened while you’re away.
 
The best way to find the perfect facility for your pet is to ask your pet-owning friends or your veterinarian where they board thei ...

While it may not be the crime of the century to someone else, a home break-in can cause a tremendous amount of stress and upset to the victims of the invasion. I remember feeling very safe in my home until the day my wife came home to find that it had been ransacked and a number of our valuable items stolen. I called a big-name home security provider, only to find out the coverage that company offered was substandard, incomplete, and expensive.
 
Feeling safe at home is one of the most important aspects of daily living, but it shouldn’t have to cost a king’s ransom.
 
Because I value the security and comfort of feeli ...

Who invented the gyro?

By Niko Moulangianis 
Owner, Niko’s Bar and Gyros
 
Eu-rohs? Jai-rohs? Gee-rohs?
 
A proper gyro sandwich requires perfectly seasoned beef and lamb ground together and then slow-roasted, topped with onions and tomatoes, and then wrapped in a warm, soft pita.
 
With all of that beautiful flavor, you would think we could get the name right.
 
It’s pronounced “yee-rohs,” once and for all.
 
Variations in geographical languages created nuances around the pronunciation, but the correct Greek pronunciation for gyros is “yee-rohs.”
 
Gyros have made their way from the streets of Greece straight into American hearts, ...

By Terry May
Founder/CEO, The May Group
 
At The May Group, we teach people about how money works. Now I know that might sound like an oxymoron. After all, doesn’t everyone know how money works? Not necessarily.

We teach our clients the strategies that the banks are using to generate income by helping people put their money where it can’t be lost, and we use life insurance products that ...

Carbs are not the enemy

Carbohydrates.
 
That so-called “dirty” word that has been ingrained in the brains of dieters and fitness enthusiasts alike as something to avoid like the plague. Not only are specific carbs good for you, they also play a vital role in a healthy lifestyle.
 
Carbs are essential to your body for a number of reasons. They serve as its main source of energy. When consumed, your body converts them into glucose, which is used to fuel the cells in your brain and muscles. Carbs also lower your risk for disease. They contain fewer calories per gram than fat, as well as serve as a great source of fiber. You can reduce ...

Is it hemorrhoids or cancer?

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
 
Although hemorrhoids are really nothing to laugh about, I try to inject a little bit of humor into these monthly columns in an effort to add some levity to what for some people is an embarrassing, and very personal, problem. 
 
But because March was National Colon Cancer Awareness Month, I’m going to take a serious turn and talk to you for a minute about cancer. 
 
Bleeding, pain, and leakage are all common symptoms of hemorrhoids, but they can also be signs of rectal cancer. I see people in my office who think they have hemorrhoids, but they actually have cancer—just as I see people who th ...

By Kathleen Flowers
Owner, Lookaway Farm
 
The sun is finally shining, the flowers are blooming, and the foliage is once again verdant. For horse lovers, that signals the start of summer horse show season.
 
Horse shows are divided into two main categories for academy classes and for show horses.
 
Shows for academy classes attract equestrians at a more amateur level. Many, although not all, participants are new to the sport and still learning the ropes. Often these competitors use a school horse rather than an animal they own or rent.
 
Higher level and more specialized equestrians typically compete in rated shows designed for riders with show horses. These ride ...
