Athlete ankle/foot pain? A whole team with Sever's? Something must change. My suggestion to the coaches with this issue… Don't make them tumble or land on hard surfaces for a month. I bet half the issues will resolve themselves. Athletes should dip their feet in a bucket of ice water for ten minutes then warm/hot […]

Ballet… I love ballet. It’s truly a beautiful art. I studied it for years as a child then again as an adult in the city. I even searched for adult ballet classes in NJ, but could not fund one. That’s how I ended up in ballroom dance. Anyway, my reason for mentioning ballet is because I […]

Too Much Protein, Kids So I got a text yesterday from a parent, “should I start my daughter on protein shakes?” Take a guess what my two-word response was… “Absolutely NOT.” I did elaborate after that and I did send her links to articles on why you should not give kids too much protein. First […]

Salads… You Do Not Need Lettuce I have a thought for those of you who say you "hate salad." Did you know you can throw a few fruits and/or veggies of your choice and call it a salad? Start with a few green beans and grapes if that's all you enjoy from the produce dept. […]

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
