Time to get your groove on

Line dancing is just one of the many dance routines participants can learn if attending the monthly dance meetings at The Lake House in Spring Hill.

What is it about dancing?

We find ourselves moving our bodies to a song we love and we instantly feel joyful. It doesn’t matter what type of music it might be. Just that it lifts our mood as well as giving us a good, low-impact cardio workout, increased stamina and a way of socializing with other individuals.

“It is something you can enjoy at any time in your life, no matter what your ability,” said Peter Berna, President and Treasurer of USA Dance, Adventure Coast Chapter 6090. “Dancing makes us feel good and more importantly it can be fun and good for your health.”

Participants at Sherry Kelly’s art studio proudly present their finished artwork for the camera after attending a 45-minutes creative workshop.

After the youngest of her four daughters reached the age of two, stay-at-home mom Sherry Kelly thought she might like to go back to work. She was casting around for something to do but deep in her heart, she knew she preferred spending time with children.

Sherry says that’s when she had “a bit of an epiphany”.

“I had always spent time with my daughters and their friends on creative projects and soon friends of friends wanted to join in too. “So we bought a garden shed, put an air conditioning unit in it and soon my own creative thinking kicked in,” she said.

A form of natural therapy, acupuncture is a respected, powerful alternative method of healthcare

Attitudes about acupuncture have changed dramatically. It wasn’t that long ago when the very thought of treating a condition with acupuncture, or perhaps hypnosis, would raise an eyebrow or two within the medical mainstream. But not any more.

Chefs of Napoli

Chefs of Napoli turns out an impressive menu; the marinara is just perfect and the seafood is not only fresh but cooked perfectly thanks to the culinary skills of Chefs Antonio Cacace and Luigi Barile who grew up in Italy in the coastal town of Pozzuoli close to Naples.

I started with Carpaccio — an Italian term for raw beef filet. Yes, raw but so delicious. The beef is chilled and then sliced paper-thin and served with shaved Parmesan, capers, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice. It's a classic.

Meet Dianna Alonzo, Yael Chenard and Anna Peterson — administrators of Spring Hill, FL Neighbors, a Facebook publication covering all things about news, business, art and life in Spring Hill. The group is 8,236 members strong.

More than administrators of the group, they are longtime friends who also want to give back to their community and lend a helping hand to neighbors in time of need.

The Flower House poised for St. Valentine’s Day with floral arrangements that declare passion, affection and devotion.

Saint Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the day of romance when, each year, people exchange cards, gifts or flowers with someone dear to them.

It’s the day when cupids and hearts and flowers become the iconic gifts to give.

It’s also the day when flower shop owners have to get all their blooms ready for their busiest day of the year.

Albert Tavolaro, owner of the Flower House, at Forest Oaks Boulevard and Commercial Way, said he starts planning for Valentine Day right after Christmas.
