Niagara on the Lake.  Quaint, charming vinyard town in Ontario, Canada.
It's a bit chilly here, and I'm sorry I packed sandals and summer skirts, but the tulips are still beautiful and mine at home are long gone.

I flew into Buffalo and drove to Niagra on the Lake.  I couldn't resist taking a detour and seeing Niagara Falls.  It's one of the "Seven Wonders" after all.   It was gorgeous.   I was a bit disappointed at the tacky souvenir shops that surrounded the place.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge advocate of free enterprise and all that, but today I was wishing we could do it with a bit more class.

breakfast "diversity"

Jon Huck has created an interesting photo website of people and their breakfasts.

I've fallen in love with our new VitaMix and am surprised how healthy it feels to have a green smoothie for breakfast.  Having five or six servings of greens already in my system feels very freeing -- I don't have to worry about getting in salads or broccoli for lunch. 

The odd thing?  I'm actually more likely to eat greens later.  
And something about those greens being pre-munched up makes the energy hit your system sooner. 
What do you eat for breakfast?

moving makes you Hotter

This might be the number one reason to get moving.

At least men think so.

And women probably do too.

According to research quoted in Men's Health, moving faces are hotter than stationary ones.   

Then again, Men's Health also says we (women) always go for "the loud, obnoxious type" and I couldn't disagree more.   What do you think?  Is sweaty sexy??
