  • Every woman knows that if she hangs onto some favorite item of clothing it will come into fashion again. For men it’s the width of the tie, the size of the jacket lapel, and the number of suit buttons that recycle again and again. Often there is about a 20-year turn around for styles in clothing, and the same holds true in other areas. When looking at current trends in fitness, one can see that many “old school” workouts are again popular. Just like fashion, the fabric may be updated, but the basic style is similar.

  • It’s hard to believe that the lazy days of summer are quickly coming to an end, and school bells are just around the corner.  You have probably already started buying new school clothes and school supplies.  An important thing to remember with each new school year is to make sure your child’s school entry or sports physical and vaccinations are up to date.
