JOHN GRAY’s Greatest Father’s Day Gift

June 18, 2010


Looking for the perfect Happy Fathers Day gift on June 20th? Mega-best selling author John Gray says Dad’s favorite gift is free, easy and as close as your heart. “More than anything, every father wants to feel like a hero and his wife can easily do that,” says John Gray, Ph.D., C.F.T.  “In front of the kids, tell your husband that he truly makes you happy and proud.  Write him a card and read it out loud.”

Dr. Gray explains that just by hearing those words, a man’s testosterone increases.  Testosterone is the hormone that provides stress relief and vitality for men. “He’ll feel like Brad Pitt and Will Smith, climb mountains and even clean the garage.  A confident Dad is a great Fathers Day gift for the whole family,” says Gray.

John Gray’s new book is a very popular Fathers Day gift for 2010.  “VENUS ON FIRE MARS ON ICE: Hormonal Balance—the Key to Life, Love, and Energy” (Amazon http://tinyurl.com/johngrayfire) details small shifts in behavior, nutrition and communication that quickly make a difference in Mars and Venus by creating healthy hormones for balanced planets that restore passionate desire. By appreciating their differences, men and women increase energy, manage anxiety and achieve natural health, harmony and happiness at any age.   The book makes a unique gift.

John Gray revolutionized our view of gender differences with his book, “MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS.”  His Mars-Venus series has sold over 50 million copies, making Gray the best selling relationship author in history, New York Times best selling author of the last decade, and a best selling author of all time.

Starring in a television special and DVD based on the book, “JOHN GRAY: VENUS ON FIRE, MARS ON ICE,” Gray acts out hilarious scenes between men and women, demonstrating communication techniques, super fitness exercise, super foods and super sleep that can enhance every relationship. Produced by International Media and Corazon Productions and presented by WLIW21, the show airs on PBS member stations throughout America http://www.venusonfiremarsonice.com.  Local listings at www.pbs.org/stationfinder.

CLAY AIKEN featured in Chicago’s Senior News

June 9, 2010

All it took was a few bars of an old Heatwave song, and Clay Aiken was on his way.

American Idol viewers in January 2003 were taken by surprise when an unknown singer strode confidently into the audition room, announced to the judges that he was their choice, and backed up that claim with an electrifying rendition of “Always and Forever” that instantly caught the attention of millions watching at home. Many of them — like judge Randy Jackson — must have wondered, “Where is that voice coming from?”  Well, Clay knew…and he’s never looked back. (click to read more, and scroll down)

CELTIC WOMAN featured in The New York Times

June 2, 2010

ABOUT a year ago I started to notice something odd on those evenings when I was channel surfing. When I passed through PBS, I often caught sight of a bunch of impeccably groomed women in shiny gowns singing gorgeous harmonies with great sincerity. Every once in a while a tiny, buxom fiddler would cavort across the stage, tossing her white-blond mane. They induced in me a spacey, Groban-esquestupor. They were Celtic Woman. (read more)
