Merry Christmas from the village of Stonington, CT

Without much ado on this Christmas morning, I want to share my favorite Christmas Tree picture of all time. It was taken in December of 2008 — about four blocks from my house — right after a new-fallen snow here in Stonington, CT.

Think Peace on Earth — and Harmony Too! Merry Christmas!

                                                                                                                                                                    Just in case you missed my annual Christmas Photos that I sent yesterday, here they are again. Eleven pics from 2011 — Merry Christmas

In the interest of harmony, once again I am offering you a chance to share these two powerful movies with your family this Christmas. They are about 1.5 hours each and are likely to leave you feeling differently about the role of the human race on our precious planet. Below the two films, I have provided links to my version of how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it.

HOME — a great 2009 film; a powerful eye-opener 

“Earthlings” — A documentary that we all NEED to see

How do we get out of this mess and return to harmony with Nature?

  1. Jim and Family – Happy Year End 2011 & New Year 2012!

    My gifts to my two girls (20 & 22) and their boyfriends are beautiful notebooks of the materials that I have gathered over the last ten years and taught on “Healthy Lifestyle Education, Application and Support.” Included are 16 GB flash drives with many videos by the experts!

    Now I’ll write a cover letter and put that with YOUR NEW BOOK, which I just happen to have two copies of, as my final gifts to the couples later today!

    My request of their gift to me this year is to re-dedicate to the WFPB optimal nutrition guidance that they received nine years ago when they participated with Doreen and me at the Dr. McDougall TOTAL HEALTH SOLUTION 10-day Program. Peer pressures do lead to indulging a bit with “normal eating.” Their guys will be asked to support their eating in the WFPB direction, too, and avoid the SAD foods that are so addictive and harmful to the world.

    Now to write that cover letter! Then to prepare Vegan Christmas Dinner 2011 for the six of us!! (Can you say “Tofurky Feast?”)

    Oh — another great guidance book (out-of-print and not on e-books yet) that I am gifting the two guys is Stewart Emery’s 1982 book “The Owner’s Manual for Your Life — The Book that You Should Have Gotten at Birth, but Didn’t!” Stewart was the first “est Trainer” after Werner Erhard.
    This is about “Transformation,” not about “Change.”

    Jim — Thanks for being a big part of presently inspiring adoption of what Dr. Michael Klaper presented and inspired in his 1991 VHS tape — “A Diet For All Reasons!”
