I’m no different; having following a very low-carb diet all last year, I gave myself 2 weeks to enjoy the holiday foods before I put myself back on “the straight and narrow”. In hindsight, I didn’t too badly. Compared to prior years, I overate at a rate that would not have allowed me to follow a diet for more than 2 days after New Years! How are you doing on your quest to eat healthy? Read More »

posted Fri January 20th 2017 @ 10:52 AM

In 1995 my late partner Tomislav Podreka and I founded a specialty tea company which seemed to have been fated as much leading up to the formation of the company happened accidentally. It felt as if we were being steered or guided toward our destiny. As we were both quite bookish and fond of word play, it didn’t take long for us to decide upon the name SerendipiTea. Read More »

Living in the New York area, winter is very real and this last week it has been very cold: wind chill at 3 degrees! I never mind, as long as I have two warm doggies to curl up with on the sofa with a good book & a mug of tea or warm drink; winter has always been a chance for me to “hunker down”, get things done, plan ahead for spring events and continue working on my many projects. I just love the seasons, even winter. Read More »
