If you're already a fan of KD, you may know there's a kirtan (call and response chanting) scheduled for Tuesday November 30th in NYC. The venue for this event is the Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew at West End Avenue @ 86th Street at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm). Ticket information is available at krishnadas.com
If you're not a Krishna Das fan yet, you will be once you hear this brilliant, loving, humble, and sweet man sing. Chanting sacred mantras with him (at a live event) to the accompaniment of instruments such as the harmonium, tabla, and hand symbols will open your heart in enJOYment.
Click here for a sample of sacred KD music; but be advised that there's nothing like being in the energy of a real live kirtan. Namaste.

My sweetheart and I are in the Hamptons enjoying a dual purpose romantic get-away. We're staying at the home of honeymooning friends and taking care of their two (very big) dogs and two (rarely seen) kitties. The weather has been lacking sunshine, but we're enjoying beach house pleasures such as an outdoor shower, hot tub, and pool. Fortunately, I have access to a laptop without which I would have surely gone mad. My social media habit has increased exponentially and I'm beginning to think I'll need rehab upon my return to the mainland.
The division of culinary labor is just to my liking. My darling is responsible for feeding all humans, canines, and felines. My desire to cook has not yet kicked in. I'm awaiting a magically motivating event which could come any day now thanks to Twitter friend Christie, a foodie from Down Under, who has a mouth watering website called Fig & Cherry. I just signed up for her newsletter which should begin arriving shortly. Click the blue link provided (at the end of this paragraph) and perhaps you'll be motivated to try her recipes before me Fig & Cherry.

Normally, I have no problem sending my medical questions directly to The Dr. Oz Show . Every now and then, however, my question feels (and sometimes is) a little risqué, even for the No Embarrassment Zone. Though I’m confident the following query is not unique to me, I’m a wee bit inhibited about posing it to my very favorite and highly esteemed doctor.
Q: If an individual (gender not being a factor) is enthusiastically engaged in performing an extended act of oral pleasure and begins to experience jaw pain, should this be considered a sign of a potential heart attack?

ATTENTION: Women, Ladies, Gals, and Goddesses of all ages. If you're a twenty-something, a thirty-something, or even a forty-something year old female, you may have developed a fear of aging... the result of a youth culture initiated by Baby Boomers decades ago. Like all young people, Boomers never expected to age out of their age-spot-free bliss.
Anti-aging face creams, Botox, fillers, and surgery all promise to preserve an impossible standard of beauty even for those who have yet to experience their first beginner's wrinkle. My own external biological clock, like everyone else's, is clicking onward; and I'm determined to redefine beauty so I can feel more like a fox and less like a crow (no disrespect meant to the animal kingdom).
Be sure to check out the inspiring slide show on wowOwow.com, regardless of how old you are. Twenty-six of the sexiest, most amazing women of our time, all in their 60's, are featured in their gorgeously glowing maturity. Each woman is as strong and vibrant as ever.

Dr. Andrew Ordon is a board-certified plastic surgeon, professor of plastic surgery at the University off California, Los Angeles, and one of the hosts of The Doctors (a very cool morning talk show). Dr. Ordon recently answered a question in Shape Magazine about an uncommon procedure said to enhance the female G-Spot. During the proceeding, an experienced plastic surgeon or gynecologist injects a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane into the depths of the female reproductive sector thereby enlarging her G-spot. The goals of the procedure are to make the G-spot easier to locate, stretch sensitive nerve endings, and intensify those yummy sensations women love to feel down there. The treatment is costly (around $2,000) and lasts for as much as a year.
If I wasn’t so afraid of needles, I’d consider having this procedure. Perhaps if the process included a squirt of Restylane into my clitoris with the promise of bigger and better orgasms in the external sector, I’d be tempted. In the meantime, I think I’ll just order Violet Blue’s book and hope it will suffice.
