From vitamins, oils, spices and herbs to whisks, trivets and pots and pans, THE GO-TO PLACE IS NEWLY OPENED Good4U

Many thousands of men and women are diagnosed each year with some form of cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

For them, treatment options will probably include chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery and, consequently, side effects like nausea, pain and fatigue.

Those side effects can not only include hair loss, but also dry skin, brittle nails and weight gain.

And for women in particular, these side effects can take over one’s daily life.

Close to the SunCoast Parkway bicycle trail in Brooksville, there’s a small olive grove where you can find some truly fine fresh olives and olive products.

The 5-acre and some, spread is the domain of Cambren and Deirdre Davis, a couple who fell in love with Italy when they vacationed there a few years ago.

The Copper Kitchen in Spring Hill

The Temptations singing “My Girl” filled the air in and around Rodney Jones’ The Copper Kitchen food truck and customers relaxed on nearby picnic tables beneath brightly colored, windsails as Jones prepared their dishes.

This is no ordinary lonchera. This food truck doesn’t move. It’s more an eclectic outdoor restaurant that happens to serve food from a truck — a very distinctive truck.

I’m doing this really fast,” said Christopher Chalmers, “because when I get paid I’m going to Walmart to buy some new DVDs,” he said.

Chalmers is a program participant at The Arc Nature Coast, an organization that serves people with developmental disabilities in Hernando and Pasco counties.

Along with fellow participants Ann Jaman and Lorraine Lella, the group had gathered to complete their regular task of preparing Senior Voice papers for circulation — Senior Voice targets residents age 55 plus and provides community and health related information.
