Oak Street Health & Herbs

Our physical body is like a magnificent
machine. It is composed of the same elements as
earth and must be properly maintained. "We
must realize that we are what we eat."
Because of our busy lifestyles and the fact that
we are overly stressed we rely too much on fast
and overly processed foods often deficient of the
proper nutrients to keep us healthy. It fills the
hole, but that is all. Our organs become
overtaxed and soon congested.
Many of our
"dis-ease" may come from congestion in
the various organs. Which in turn effects the
entire body. Fortunately, we can begin a
detoxification process for our bodies. We are in
charge of what goes in and we can change habits.
I personally have never heard so many young
adults having their gallbladders removed. My
daughter, who has had some problems herself,
thinks it is because of the "french-fry
generation." One of the easiest foods to
hand over to the backseat and keep a toddler
quiet. Not a good idea IF (and that is only my
opinion of observation) that is what is causing
some of these problems. If you are eating only
bad oils, consider your omega-oils as a balance.

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
This past weeks work-time
has been spent on the business of the first
newsletter for 2007. In addition to reporting on
the success of our past show with Barbara
Courtney, I am outlining the schedule for the new
season, which will include seven new shows with
artists that I am very excited about, some, brand
new to the area. Two of these fine artists are
John Fitzgibbon and Mary Lou Reed.
John will be opening our 2007
season with a show of paintings in three media
that we have titled: VARIETY! Color Is the Spice.
This show opens Friday February 9th and will run
through the 25th. Though John teaches workshops
mainly for watercolor, his show will feature work
in oil and acrylic as well, and some 24 paintings
will be shown. John will be with us for the
opening reception the night of the 9th at 6:00
and those invitations will go out to the
membership later this month. The public is
invited to attend as well, as usual.
Additionally, and for the first
time in over a year, we will be featuring a
workshop with John in Beginning and Intermediate
watercolor on two weekends. These classes are for
adults 17 years or older and anyone can sign up
regardless of proficiency level in this medium.
The first workshop will be February 9, 10, and
11th and will be held at the Hyde House from 9-
4:00 daily with an hour in the middle for
"sack lunch" on the site. The price is
$40.00 per day, and you may sign up for all three
days for a complete class, or just the days you
can come. This first weekend will be considered
Beginning Level. The following weekend, February
16, 17, and 18th will be a second workshop for
Intermediate Level Watercolor and will be the
same hours and cost. If either weekend is
"snowed or seriously iced-out" we will
go to the weekend of February 23, 24 and 25th as
a make-up weekend. Sign-up forms will be sent to
all members in the new newsletter due out early
next week, or you can call artCentral and stop by
for a form beginning next week. Pre-payment
reserves your place, and the classes are limited
in size, so if you are interested let us know as
soon as possible. Further instructions and a
supply list will be given to those who reserve
places in the classes, and refunds will be made
only for weather cancellations. For further
information, call me at 417 358 4404, and I can
answer your questions. We are very excited to
feature John, who holds workshops all over the
country, and hope that area artists will take
advantage of this opportunity to brush-up on
their skills in this new year!
More on this workshop and a
second one in March by Mary Lou Reed, next week!
