Synchronicity! Last week, we talked about revolving careers and the importance of

growing with each new opportunity – fine tuning what you do daily to fit more with your own personal missions in life. Well, one of my goals for some time now has been to help others around me be more healthy. I am at the tail end of a 30 day alcohol free challenge that I’m doing with some fitness people and I’ve grown quite attached to something that is VERY good for you, too…Kombucha! You’ve probably seen me carrying it around in my cooler bag! It is a non-alcoholic*, black/green tea LOW SUGAR drink that is loaded with probiotics and tastes great! I now distribute this organic, locally brewed in small batches, drink to our local establishments! I noticed it wasn’t available at bars and restaurants, felt it should be, and am now part of Fairport Brewing Company to make this happen! Please look for Kombucha to be available locally where you see these posters and I’ll keep you updated here too! It has always been exciting for me to bring something to the mainstream that wasn’t (this newsletter, drop-in fitness, Salsacise, etc) so here we go! If you are a business owner who wishes to carry this fine (refrigerated) beverage, email me back or text (585) 298-0116! People will start to ask for it. It is detoxifying (anti-oxidants help with immunity, too), energizing (B12), and tastes great! And, yes, it can be mixed with wine, beer and champagne…So you can feel good, too, when you do imbibe! 🙂 Cheers!
Peace & Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

Plein Air Nocturne oil painting with national acclaimed artist Keith Gunderson
This is an exciting and increasingly popular motif for the plein air painter today. The evocative way electric light illuminates the landscape creating abstract masses and how color and reflection are heightened all contribute to increased sense of drama and mood. An exciting painting style that depicts scenes evocative of the night or subjects as they appear in a veil of light, in twilight, or in the absence of direct light. Recommended for students with oil painting experience.
Keith is a current and past member of the Salmagundi Club, Hudson Valley Art Association, Audubon Artists, and Oil Painters of America. Exhibited widely, his drawings and paintings are in numerous private collections across America. His website: http://keithgunderson.com/
Have you ever been told to find a source of vitamin C to consume when you feel sick or weak? According to studies by the Mayo Clinic taking Vitamin C appears to reduce the duration of a cold. Vitamin C, often called Ascorbic Acid, gives the immune system a “boost “of energy and help to ward off colds.
Vitamin C is essential to the body in many different ways. It is good for the skin. It is also very important in the structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bone. Also it plays an important role in brain cell function. It even plays a role in helping convert fat to energy.
How much do you need? Recommended guidelines vary from 40 milligrams to 1000 milligrams. Men need at least 90 milligrams daily and women need at least 85 milligrams. To get Vitamin C consider dietary sources such as citrus, kiwi, papaya and kale. If you don’t get it from dietary sources consider taking Vit C in a pill form.
