Picture an office teeming with workers who couldn't be more on the ball. Chests open, shoulders straight, trunk muscles offering plenty of anti-slouch support. Each is perched atop a round, inflatable plastic object, variously known as an exercise ball, stability ball or Swiss ball. Each is practicing the art of active sitting, turning a chairless workplace into a fitness-conscious ballroom. Chalk it up to the ingenuity of a sedentary society: a strategy to combat the hunched shoulders, ...

They look like pretty plants nestled in decorative containers, filled with layers of dirt and decorative rocks. Or pretty plants nestled in semi-enclosed containers filled with dirt and decorative rocks, much like terrariums. Lisa Hoerr-Grandstaff insists they are the next new thing in gardening - tabletop gardening. People have always had houseplants, she explains.

At the center of the weeklong celebration emphasizing transportation choices for a more livable community, is the 2nd annual Commute Options Fair on Sunday, June 4 at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. The fair runs in ... [full story]

Q: My wife and I purchased our new home in December, 2004. The builder financed 100 percent of the purchase price of $146,500 at 5 percent, which was great. We added around $10,000 in upgrades that we paid for out-of-pocket, which actually brought the purchase price to $156,500. At the last minute, the builder asked us to do a lease option for a year to help him on his taxes, and we agreed as long ... [full story]

Imagine birds swooping over head, working in an old saw mill or eating lunch with a fox.  Those are just a few of the many wild things volunteers do at the High Desert Museum. The museum, a nationally acclaimed treasure, has been expanding its programs and is looking for talented, dedicated volunteers to help deliver a high-quality experience and have fun too. “Our volunteers do a lot of interesting things around here,” according to Cathy ...

Increasing numbers of older Americans are creating their own blogs on the Internet these days. A blog is an online journal. You can write your thoughts, your feelings, your opinions on politics - really, anything you choose. One Internet-trend observer notes that out of 54 million bloggers, at least 160,000 are older people, and more sign on each year. OK, so blogging has not quite become the mania of the Social Security set - nearly 60 percent of ... [full story]

The pact banishes almost all ... [full story]
