Paul Zerdin, ventriloquist without a dummy - The dummy, an indispensable ventriloquis...

I'm sure most of you have heard of this British Ventriloquist, Paul Zerdin. I love this throw-back to old British Sea-side humour. I could not stop laughing... more. We should see if we can get him over for a Brits in LA event

Your healthy dish for the week-Hearty Miso Soup with noodles

Every week you will find me here with a new easy, quick, and healthy recipe you can whip up. I am not a chef by trade, just a busy working mum that wants to share her healthy eating habits. Here's a comforting thought, I'm blonde, so if I can do it, anyone can. The recipes that I will post are all vegan (no meat or dairy to include cheese, butter and eggs) or fish healthy options. I hope to inspire you to bring in at least one of these options weekly. As we move along and you see how easy it is to be really healthy, you might add more. I choose to live 100% this way for my health and vitality. I don't believe in diets. My husband has eaten this way for over a year now and has lost 35 pounds. It's not about weight loss it's about being healthful and happy. Now, here's that recipe. Feel free to pop any suggestions or questions over my way. A healthy week to you! INGREDIENTS 6 cups water + 6 teaspoons of veggie bouillon 3 tbsp miso paste (wholefoods do a great low sodi…
