Not too long ago I researched the top 10 healthiest foods on the food chain and I now keep them at the top of my grocery list.

Among the many Roman Catholic titles of the Blessed Virgin Mary, one of the most popular and effective is Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

We can, however, enjoy greater focus and a fuller life when we learn to master our internal triggers, make time for traction, hack back external triggers, and then, use precommitments as the final firewall between ourselves and distraction.
Just because we aren’t traipsing the globe right now doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little bit of international flavor now and again. At Johnnie MacCracken’s Celtic Pub, you’ll have the taste of Ireland right in the heart of Marietta, Georgia. Picture cold pints, corned beef, and beer-battered fish—doesn’t get more Irish than that!
