ARTICLE: WELLNESS IN OUR PERSONAL ENVIRONMENTS

Wellness_2 Ask ten people what Wellness is and you get ten different answers. Wikipedia, the online dictionary, states that Wellness (in medicine) refers to a state of being healthy and since that is a ‘circular’ description to me, I like better the phrase that Halbert L. Dunn was credited with in the 1950’s, “Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind-body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being”

It’s wonderful to wish someone to ‘be well!’ and we certainly wish our loved ones to be well and live well just as we wish those ‘states of well-being’ for ourselves. So, we can say that Wellness is a state of well-being in all ages of life; a life span that is increasing every year (100 year olds are less and less unusual).

The World Should Give Thanks for America

Thanks Three hundred and 14 years ago, the Pilgrims gave thanks because there was a place for them in this land, and it was indeed grand. The land is grander today, and that, too, is remarkable.  The U.S. Constitution is not only older than France's, Germany's, Italy's or Spain's constitution, it's older than all of them put together.

Americans should, as always, be thankful this Thanksgiving, but they should also understand just how rare in human history their blessings are.    Read it all.    Discuss on OurMontville blog.

Backyard Baking in Montville

Cookin' up the history - This spring, dozens of Montville third-graders are expected to troop across Untitled Elizabeth Menzies' patio to learn about local history.  Just steps from the Menzies' back door is a 230-year-old out- kitchen -- a small stone structure built by one of the township's early settlers. Menzies has donated the tiny building, which she once used as a shed, to the township as a historic site.

The 12-by-14-foot kitchen has stone walls, a brick oven in the shape of a beehive and a small iron crane that was used to move cooking pots to and from the fire.  Out-kitchens were often found in the South, where they were used in the summer to keep the home cooler. They were not commonplace in New Jersey and would have been built by a family of some means, said Kathy Fisher, chair of the Montville Township Historical Society.  Fisher believes it may be one of only a few stone out-kitchens left in the county.  See Star Ledger.
