I love Todd Solodnz’s films. They are absolutely quirky. While many people squirmed at his film Happiness about a pedophile father, I thought it was brilliant and very dark. Life During Wartime is much lighter in tone and my friend and I laughed a lot during this film. The subject matter was classic Solodnz but it was more Woody Allen-esque, at his best. The acting was superb with Americans who felt “real” in that “I love my medications and don’t care about anyone else “ kind of wa

Still out in the wilds of Kenora. No further wild life spotted. Painted toenails blue to pass the time in desperation, I watched "Flags of Our Fathers" by Clint Eastwood

Dear Readers,Still out in the wilds of Kenora.  No further wild life spotted.  Painted toenails blue to pass the time in desperation, I watched "Flags of Our Fathers" by Clint Eastwood.  Compared to "Saving Private Ryan" this is a gem at least there is some semblance of reality to it.  I also like the fact that Eastwood did not sugarcoat the racism against the "Indian" in the film he also was honest about the willingness of the Americans to use any emotional  (triggers

Point number one, refined sugar is by and large the worst additive for the immune cells. Refined sugar is immunosuppressive.  No mincing words about it. To boost your immune system, it is important to try to stay on diet ideally free of foods with refined sugars such as corn syrup and fructose, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, unnecessary additives and preservatives.   Your glutathione level is fastest depleted by toxins, sugar and chemicals ingested into the body.   Glu

David McLay and RonniLyn Pustil of Positive Side Magazine asked me to contribute to their regular column Chatty Catie for their upcoming fall issue on the subject of gratitude. I chose to write about being grateful for my Mother, and the many others who have influenced my activism and fundraising.

Okay....I know must speak for most DJ’s in the gay bar scene when I say “No more request for Lady GaGa”. I swear if I see one more homosexual giving me the puppy dog eyes as he begs for another Lady GaGa song,

Okay....I know must speak for most DJ’s in the gay bar scene when I say “No more request for Lady GaGa”. I swear if I see one more homosexual giving me the puppy dog eyes as he begs for another Lady GaGa song, I’m gonna lose it and commit a Gay-on-gay hate crime. It’s gotten ridiculous. As if they haven’t heard any Lady GaGa in a hundred years. When you know damn well that they have all her songs on their iPod and they just left another dancefloor where they were trying their best

I first got to know Mark through his blog on The Body (there is a link to it at the end of the post). When launching this site we began chatting on Facebook, and thought he was the perfect person with which to start off the PositiveLite.com interviews. Mark has been doing what I've been aspiring to do for quite some time, and that is use multi-media (i.e. video, writing, images) in a blog format covering all sorts of great topics, and with his flare for writing and wit.

I'm reposting as to be able to publish links on Facebook. June 14th, at the Coutyard Marriot, the Canadian Treatment Action Council held a presentation and panel discussion on the latest litterature review and analysis on liver transplants for those who are either HIV or Hep B/C positive, or both. For those who may not know, if one is HIV + they are not able to get a transplant in Canada, nor will any of the provinces pay to have it done in the states. This is the first in an ongoing series to
