It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view. - Chuck Vasser

The Green Fit Chick

Many people forget how important hydration is, especially after a seven or eight-hour night's rest with no water. Start your morning off right and get hydrated. A glass of water, a dash of sea salt and the juice of a fresh lemon will get your day off to the great start.

Added Sugar

You already know you consume too much sugar and it can have serious health consequences. Manufactures sneak sugar into their products under the names below as “added sugars”. Be healthy. Read labels. Eliminate added sugar from your diet while eating fruits and vegetables that contain minerals, vitamins, fiber and natural sugar.

Reduce Sodium In Beans

Draining and rinsing canned beans can reduce their sodium content by more than 40%. But taking just a few extra minutes is key to getting the most benefit. The reduced-sodium beans are ready to use in any favorite recipe.

Longer Life

According to new research 1. not smoking, 2. limiting your alcohol intake, 3. staying active, 4. maintaining a healthy weight, and 5. eating nutritious foods could not only extend your life, but improve the quality of it.

Planks

Planks are one of the most effective exercises because they require a small time investment and offer substantial results in a relatively short time. Make plank exercises part of your regular routine.

Bike Positions

A riders determines how s/he wants to ride a bike and what type of bike they will use. Bikes, therefore, come in different configurations and geometries to suit individual riders. Different body positions suit each bike, such as 2 o’clock, 12 o’clock, 1 o’clock and so on.

Dog Crates

Done right, crate training helps breed familiarity, trust and a sense of security between your pup and his crate. You should not put dogs in crates that have not been properly crate trained.

Mat Training

Mat Training- A mat, or a defined place for a dog to “go to,” is a versatile and useful behavior to teach a dog. A mat can be a a dog bed, a dog mat, a bath mat, a towel, a blanket, – whatever makes the most sense for the dog and the handler.

Rude Dog Owners

Rude Habits Of Dog Owners. These are some of the things people complain about the most when it comes to dog owners.

Give An Animal A Home

Adopt a pet this holiday season. You can give an animal in need a loving home or consider donating to the ASPCA or other animal charity in a friend’s name.

Bisselsign


As the pandemic disrupts global food supply chains, people may have to depend more on locally grown food. Experts expect the number of people suffering through severe food shortages could swell to 265 million people in 2020.
Bissel Gardeners are glad they have been community gardening and raising food for themselves for more than 25 years. We hope when the NYC Pause In Place is lifted more folks will see the need for community gardens and will join us! Chuck the Gardener

Cream-style soups are a favorite for warm, soothing meals on cold winter nights. The addition of a cup or two of cooked beans can stretch canned or homemade soup into a complete, protein-rich meal in just minutes. Stir a can of drained rinsed white beans into tomato soup. Or try pinto beans added to cream of celery soup.
