January, 2011 – Happy New Year


January, 2011



Dear Around Wellington Readers,kps-ferriswheel


Happy New Year!


There’s no better way to start the new year than with some good laughs, which you can rely upon in “As I Was Saying” by Alan Williamson. Check out his “Resolutions 2011.”


We’re happy to introduce two new writers to AroundWellington.com this month – Stephanie Karpf, DVM, with “Creature Feature” and Tom Copeland, who shares the column “By the Numbers” with Juan Cocuy. In “Creature Feature,” Karpf addresses a common, “outside-of-the-box’ problem that cat owners face. And in “By the Numbers,” Copeland gives us some hints about how to attain your New Year’s Resolutions within 30 days…really! 


Speaking of the new year, if you’re aiming for a healthier 2011, check out “Ask the Docs,” where Heather Loguidice explains cholesterol levels and how to manage them.


See what’s in store for you in this first month of the new year by clicking on “Astrology at Work in Your Life” by Karola Crawford. If your sign is Capricorn, you’ll find a little more detail about yourself this month.


A few months ago we had the pleasure of reading an interview with humorist Dave Barry, thanks to Marla E. Schwartz. This month in “Cultural Corner,” she interviews Dave’s brother Sam Barry and Kathi Kamen Goldmark about their book “WRITE THE BOOK ALREADY! The Tough Love You Need to Get Published Now.” They also get into the music on the side that this couple performs, along with some of their friends from the literary world. Fun stuff!

Be sure to visit the website on Jan. 10th when we will announce the winner of our “Holiday Joy” photo contest!  Thanks to all of you who participated!


Thanks to all of our wonderful writers, who made the January, 2011 online issue possible!  The articles mentioned above are just a “taste of” the whole menu of topics for this month. Please take a moment to explore, laugh, discover and read more!
