Knock! Knock! Ring! Ring! Help! Help! This is how my afternoon started. I looked out the window to see what was happening and saw my neighbor’s car, with the hood up in my drive.

The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.

CNN is reporting — Would you rather take home $25 in cash or $50 of tuna?
People who bought StarKist tuna have that choice due to a class action lawsuit settlement. The customers claimed that StarKist put less tuna in their cans than advertised.
The suit, filed in federal court in Oakland more than two years ago, charged that StarKist under-filled certain 5-ounce cans of chunk light tuna and solid white albacore tuna.
Federal law requires 5 ounce cans to contain between 2.84-ounces and 3.23-ounces of tuna, depending on the type. The customers said StarKist cans were a little bit below those minimum requirements.
