Where have I been? Living.

A lot has been going on. For the first time since September I've been able to relax at work. Our workload has become manageable for the moment, and we're all learning to breath again! I decided to take a break.

So now that I'm back, what am I excited about? MIGUN!

No, I didn't buy a gun! We're buying a "Migun"!

Remember, a Raw Food diet is not the magic bullet that some might wish you to believe. Food isn't the only thing that impacts our lives. Its true that it is probably the most important tool you have for a healthy life, but many other things will support happiness.

Happiness is also a "Migun" (My apologies to John Lennon for thinking of his song at the time I wrote this. If you know who the Beetles were (and I know some people in the world have no idea whom I'm talking about) you'll understand the reference.)

"Migun" is a therapeutic bed that was developed at least 20 years ago in Korea. It is a therapeutic massage bed that incorporates deep heat massage. It uses massage heads made of Jade which is based upon the principles of "Acupressure, Acupuncture, Heat-Therapy(Moxibustion), Chiropractic, and Massage".

So, how do you feel after being "Migunized"? WONDERFUL! During a recent session I fell asleep and snored for most of the time I was on the bed!

After only 5 sessions, my Chiropractor, the wonderful Laura Skaates, told me that she could see a big difference in my body. Keely cancelled her bi-monthly appointments with a massage therapist because it totally "opened up" her back and Dr. Laura could easily work her magic.

So, how can you get "Migunized" too?

If you're in central Ohio (or anyplace else in Ohio), I can highly recommend Migun of Westerville. If you're in some other state, check out Migun's website for the local Migun dealer. Just please tell them that you heard about Migun from me, Bob Bush, and my favorite Migun dealer, Migun of Westerville.

Oh, did I tell you that you'll get twelve 30 minute sessions for free?

Thank you Sue for bringing Migun to Westerville, for spending your time at the Asian Festival this year to introduce people to Migun, and for all you've done to help make this happen. Thanks to Nicole too for all of your invaluable assistance, professionalism, and smiles, and your first sale...

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me

Remember these words? No? For years they were part of the American landscape at least once a night every week. These days you can hear them every night on cable TV. Here's a little more.

I realize and I can see...
that suicide is painless
it brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

If you haven't figured it out yet, the name of the song is "Suicide is Painless", and it was from the movie and television show "M*A*S*H".

Don't go flying off the handle. I'm not advocating, or planning suicide, although I am of the opinion that there's no real difference between suicide and death (but that's a totally different posting). I've picked the song because to me it symbolizes change on many different levels.

The show focused on a group of people caught in a senseless war, trying to save lives, and sanity. It emphasizes the insanity, and incompetence of those in power. It made us laugh, and it made us cry.

I just got back from the grocery store, and felt like I was in a wasteland. Prices had skyrocketed. I was going to buy mangoes but they were $2 each, and they weren't even organic. I wanted an avocado, but they looked old and shriveled, and were also $2 each.

I watched the people loading up on chips, and cheese, and red meats, and soda pop, and sugary treats, until their baskets overflowed. They waddled down the aisles with their thighs rubbing together, as they pushed their carts to the next item of gluttony, and those were the men.

I felt ill.

I am not proud of America at this point in our history. We watch as children die on the battlegrounds of the Middle East so that we can drive our 10 mile per gallon (or less) SUV's and "pick-up trucks with our NRA approved rifle racks in the rear windows". (Thank God that Charlton Heston died before "Soylent Green" became a reality...or is it?)

We run to our doctors, demanding the most recent drug that we saw on TV to control our bladders, or our heartburn, instead of taking responsibilities for our lives.

We allow incompetent men and women to continue to lead our nation further and further into disarray.

I guess suicide isn't that bad. We're all doing it through our diets, lifestyles, and by failing to take responsibility for ourselves. Its just taking a lot longer than normal.

Just a little ray of sunshine this week ain't I?
