In my daily life – after I had my by – pass – I choose to eat healthy –
at least the best I could ! For those of you out there – you know just how hard this can be ! It is not easy – too many temptations ! I am giving this to you from one who struggles each and every day to maintain .
I am very fortunate to have a wife who helps me and guides me and keeps me on course. She is a Certified Health Coach from Dr. Sears courses. One of my main go to’s is a Health Drink – which is a WHOLE FOOD !
That my friends is very hard to find ! Making Healthy Breakfast Drinks – with a blender – DIY – is awesome ! Mine consists of ICE – crushed – a little water from the fridge – one half banana – one cup of Soy or Almond milk – and the main source of nutrition – a package of either DUTCH CHOCOLATE + or FRENCH VANILLA + !
This is a drink in powder form from Juice Plus called COMPLETE ! Not only does it fill me up for breakfast ( lunch also ) – but it provides a Proprietary Protein blend 13 grams. WHOLE FOOD with only 140 calories without the banana or Soy or Almond milk !
With 11 grams of sugar – 20 grams of carbohydrates – Dietary Fibers at 8 grams – Soluble Fiber 6 grams and Insoluble Fibers at 2 grams – I found this the best way to go for myself !
Plus – I actually feel filled up ! I sometimes add fruit – and a dab of peanut butter – not often ! I make it what I want and the flavors – DUTCH CHOCOLATE is my favorite !
I will provide a website for you to look over – feel free – and yes it is my wife’s ! You see – without her guidance – after my WIDOW MAKER HEART ATTACK in 2013 – I most likely would not be writing this now. I know it because I survived to live it !
http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is her official site . It contains a bundle of information. Not only do I follow it – I LIVE IT ! There is more – much more to write about – I posted a blog on this site a few years ago on my survival – if you have health issues – please read it – if you want more info – just leave a comment and I will get back to you, God Bless and HGD !
Seven years ago – we were introduced to ” GROWING ” our own FRESH produce.
Neither one of us ( Sherry) my wife – were gardeners – and the thought of weeding was completely out of my vocabulary !
Then we ordered our first ” TOWER ” Garden –
A aeroponic garden system – using Air – Water and Minerals.
We grow some of our seedlings – others we order and have them shipped to us.
Healthy eating – knowing we use no pesticides – and fresh produce –
allows us to eat healthy all year round ! ( We also grow in our garage using grow lights during Winter. )
The system is really quite simple – a tank in the bottom – holds 20 gallons of water.
A pump – is attached to the center of the Tower by a hose –
and pumps water straight up to the top and then drips down through holes in the center of the Tower.
The water also contains minerals from the Earth. Patented – and in liquid form.
Which are supplied when you order for one season. Everything you need is supplied – for your original garden season – this system we have is seven years old and looks as good today as when we bought it !
There is a timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. The whole process boils down to making sure you have water – and once a week add some tonic – or in the heat of Summer – every other week.
The fresh produce grows at a very fast rate – in four weeks time we are eating lettuce – Kale – leafy greens . Cuke’s and tomato’s & peppers take longer – but much shorter than a normal garden plot. You can grow most anything that does not require a tree. Mellon’s – Strawberries – squash – egg plant – herbs etc.
Simple – fast – and best of all ” I DO NOT HAVE TO WEED ” ! I HATE TO WEED !
Since we were some of the first in the Country as a test – we decided to purchase two more ! We have one set up for Winter in our garage and two outside as you see here – the produce is only a couple weeks old – the smaller ones about a week !
We also are distributor’s for what is called the Tower Garden – and have placed them in schools as part of a curriculum established by the Juice Plus Company – to teach children how to grow their own fresh produce all across the Country – presently 5,500 Towers are teaching the process nationwide. We are responsible for about 70 – our team is very active.
Promoting health – one green at a time – and some reds!!!! LOL
He had red curly hair – a smile a mile wide and a laugh and giggle that you knew right away who it was.
He was my younger brother – we were like a second family for my parents –
Donna and Roger were 15 and 10 years older.
We had a sister who died at birth in between the two sets of kids.
We fought like cats and dogs do – but we also were close.
He instigated a lot of it and would scream bloody murder as loud as he could when I had enough.
I was the one who into trouble but mom always knew as she later told me.
He was just o darn likable with that hair and giggle.
We played all the time together – cowboys and Indian’s – running the neighborhood –
He was always hurting himself – one time he climbed up on top of a attached shed at a neighbors house.
He was going to ambush me but I saw him and pretended to shoot him.
I saw what he was going to do and I yelled STOP – but he did it anyway –
always acting real life he sort of collapsed and rolled off the shed to the ground as if dead.
But there was a stone bird bath under the shed roof and when he came down he hit his elbow on it!
Off to the doctors office we went and then in the ambulance to the hospital to have surgery on the elbow!
He had to have a pin put in and that elbow was off to the side -making his arm seem crooked.
A few years later – we were on the front porch – and he had climbed up onto the porch railing – I told him he had better get down before he fell.
Well – as always – he gave me that silly laugh and giggle – and I could not help but smile until he did fall.
At the end of the porch beneath that railing – a 2 x 10 stuck out – he came down and hit that board with his other elbow and we repeated the same thing all over again with another surgery – now he had two elbows exactly the same!
But -it seemed like it was a perfect solution for him as it perfected his golf swing and he had a lot of power and strength in those arms – one time I was with him – and this was way before anyone was hitting the ball 300 yards.
We were playing the old number one hole at Smethport – he was a Freshman – me just beginning my senior year –
He hit that ball and because of how his elbows were now shaped – he hit it straight with power. That hole was a gradual uphill some 305 yards!
His ball ended up past the hole and into the yard behind it! Some 50 or 60 yards past! Uphill!
If I had not been there to see it – I would not believe it!
Gene Fazio – who was a card member of the PGA and a premier golfer in the Pa. and NYS area –
told me – “IF I HAD MY SHORT GAME AND MIKE’S DRIVING – I WOULD GO ON THE PGA TOUR”!
Mike was a scratch golfer even with those elbows.
Mike ended up bigger than me – he was as tall as my father who was a little over six foot tall.
The brother’s – Roger – Mike and I got our curly hair from my dad – my grandfather was bald.
Mike ended up around 215 pounds and played football – but he could kick that ball just like he hit golf balls.
Far and straight – he became a field goal kicker way before that was common in H.S.
His kick offs were always through the end zone and he went on to college at Mansfield University of Pa.
Where he became the kicker for the college football team.
He graduated in Criminal Justice.
As I said before he was always doing something and getting hurt!
He was riding my bike one day and I told him to get off as he was not big enough to ride it!
His legs could barley touch the pedals – sure enough his foot slipped and he came down on the cross bar –
off to the hospital we went again – operation for a rupture!
My brother in law Bill nick named him JUICE!
I really do not know why other than he was like electric – energy running through him – always a live wire!
Then one day Bill and I were sitting on the front porch –
and he said “HERE COMES JUICE”!
And then Bill said “JESUS CHRIST”!
And Bill hollered at him – “JUICE- PUT THE ROPE DOWN”!
But too late!
Mike was walking up the street twirling a dog rope with a clasp on the end of it over his head like a cowboy!
He got it too low just after Bill yelled to put it down and it started to wind around his head lower and lower.
It came around and smacked him right on the mouth –
“KNOCKING OUT HIS FRONT TOOTH”!
Off to the dentist office we went – oral surgery to extract what remained in his mouth of that tooth.
THAT IN A NUTSHELL WAS MY BROTHER MIKE!
Red hair – bearded – always smiling and that silly laugh – giggle.
I MISS HIM as he passed away when I was 35.
My brother MIKE – loved – close as brothers are – gone way too young – but never forgotten.

Our busy lives – our family – both our close family and what we consider our family of Juice Plus.
The journey began 13 years ago – and for us it was simply changing our life style – getting healthy – knowing that after we retired – we wanted to remain in life active as we had been in our early years.
In the above picture – we had been married 7 years – and are to the far left at age 40 ! I had always played sports – softball until I was 38 years old – basketball for a radio station – and at age 46 after volleyball – golf.
Today – we golf as much as we can – but are busy with our lives – our grand kids and our in home business of The Juice Plus Company. We started this business as a way to pay for our product – and after one year – knew that we had to get our family and grand kids on it for health reasons. And then it started to grow – and grow . All from home while working full time in our Career business of TILE !! Yes – we worked a combined 79 1/2 years for the same company !
Working for Corp. America is a dream when you are young – but can and did become a very stressful – unbearable lifestyle that we both wanted out of ! That is when we really took a look at the business side of Juice Plus. We were already distributors ( cost $50.00 a year ) – and were sharing it as the belief grew stronger and stronger with changes in our combined health. It became time to move forward – so a team developed – and it got bigger and bigger – just sharing – today we have two QMND’s and one Senior under Sherry – with one QMND walking the stage in October.
Debby is almost there as a new NMD – (National Marketing Director) and we will most likely watch her WALK THE STAGE in Austin Texas – where she will give a speech before 8000 people – and recognized by the Juice Plus Company. Something that has changed her and her families lives ! Her daughter will receive up to$1750.00 per year for college! As one of her perks for being a NMD !
We have made a dramatic change in a lot of lives – both in health and wealth. We retired – Sherry at age 63 – me at 64 – leaving behind successful careers – going full time in the Juice Plus business – traveling the Country – promoting health and showing how people can take control and work for themselves – living life to the plus one day at a time.
This August – we will tour Northern California – then in October – Austin Texas – then late January – all of February and early March – Florida – getting out of the cold ! All the while working from home on the computer and phone no matter where home is !
Our life has changed – to the good – no STRESS – maintaining a healthy lifestyle – playing golf – seeing our grand kids grow up-watching them go off to college – and most important – watching our two daughters pursue their own dreams of independence and life styles in health and nutrition.
Our road to success is a road map and we have a team following it – there is no ” I ” in TEAM – but there is a lifestyle out there – one that WE choose – and is one YOU can duplicate – TIME -LOVE – HEALTH – you just have to want it !
For more information go to http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – Sherry’s website – email – look at the site – you get this for $50.00 for a year !
You share – you take the order – send it in – the company process’s it – packages it – delivers it – collects the money for it – and sends you a commission every month ! You carry no inventory -you just share it like you would a good book or movie !
You get a whole new World full of people just like you who want to be healthy and wealthy and sharing life to the plus.

We choose this lot because of the sunrise and sunset from our driveway!
You look right to the East and left to the West!
We have been here going on fifteen months – and have had numerous sunrise and sunset skies
that is absolutely beautiful!
We are in OIB but on the mainland side – six miles to Sunset Beach and four miles to OIB.
Our backyard borders a protected area – it can not be developed or cut down – the second reason we chose this lot to build our new home!
This is now our third harvest since early spring – and are going on our second harvest of cucumbers!
She finally talked me into purchasing a grill and we often grill out here – we have no gas and the house is all electric – and electric stove tops we have found are hard to keep clean – thus I grill! LOL
Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD and SUNRISE FROM THE FRONT DRIVEWAY!
