I hate it when an indecisive
squirrel gets on the roadway. Im not
talkin bout those behind the wheel,
Im talkin bout real live little
furry creatures that come down outa the trees.
I like the squirrel that is
intent on gettin to the other side of the
street and makes a beeline. Its fairly easy
to adjust the vehicle to avoid any unsightly mess
on the pavement. The ones that are trouble are
the ones that cant decide where to go.
They zip this way a few feet,
suddenly turn and run back the other way. Some
just stop and stare at ya. MOVE!
Theres always that few
seconds of anticipation when the critter
disappears outa sight under the hood. Ive
been fortunate this year so far, I havent
heard the dreaded thump.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Along the Wellness Path
There are many protective
compounds in plants that are vitally essential to
our overall health and well-being. Phytonutrients
are the biologically active nutrients found in
plants which, when taken into the body, can help
maintain structures and functions of the body.
Whole food nutrition is packed with these
phytonutrients. A whole food is simply any food
grown and harvested in nature without refinement.
Whole foods are essential for our well-being!
Phytotherapy is the use of
whole foods and/or standardized herbal extracts
and supplements, for supportive and healing
purposes. Use of phytotherapy traces all the way
back to the beginning of time and still stands
strong in much of the world today.
Herbs and other plants
interestingly enough often have specific
affinities for certain areas of the body. For
example, phytohormonogenics gently encourages the
tissues of the body to generate more of their own
hormones. This is a very supportive mode of
action that does not stimulate or inhibit
endocrine glands but instead helps bring balance
back to the endocrine/hormone system through
The herb ashwaganda is known to
have a supportive affinity for the adrenal glands
of many individuals. By supporting these powerful
but tiny walnut-sized glands a tremendous cascade
of balance can follow from proper estrogen,
progesterone, or testosterone balance to proper
cortisol levels helping to support overall
vitality for healthy wholesome living!
So on your journey along the
wellness path, pick some whole foods from our
Creators Garden and give yourself some
phytonutrients to fuel your body to do His work.
Yours in good

Art Notes from
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
I want to
recognize a local publication that does a very
nice job of highlighting various artists and art
events in our area, the SHOW ME THE OZARKS
magazine. I was privileged to be featured in the
recent October issue, which profiled Carthage,
and me as an artist in Carthage. My thanks to
staff writer Kristin Nama of Pierce City, who
came over and interviewed me several weeks ago
here at artCentral, and who submitted this
article for the new issue. If any of you have
read this article there is one detail that was
mis-represented that I want to clear up. I am not
leaving my job here as director of artCentral
next year as she said in the story! Kristin
misunderstood me to say that I would be
completing my duties as director next year and
moving on to pursue art fulltime. What I did say
was I would be completing my duties as a
volunteer in the P.E.O. Sisterhood, currently in
which I am state president and finishing a ten
year commitment. This was something I was doing
before I took the job here at artCentral, and I
have long said that when it was completed in the
spring of 2009 I would have more time to devote
both to directing artCentral and my personal art.
I am sure that in the transposing of her notes,
Kristin did not have this quite straight, and so
I just wanted to let my board of directors in
particular know, that they are not losing me next
year! That might have been a bit of a shock for
some if they read this piece. Otherwise, it was a
very nice article and I appreciated being
recognized in this nice way. I have just returned
from three days across the state, and while there
I picked up 30+ pieces of art for our last show
of this year which will open on November 21st.
This will be a holiday exhibition which includes
paintings and work in predominately Christmas
themes. The artist is Glenda Manche of
Charleston, Missouri, and I will be telling you
more about Glenda and her paintings next week.
