As someone who has written and spoken frequently about wellness, a few keys--get out in nature, practice deep breathing, eat healthy.
Bea Broda
35:50
I personally feel more stressed about politics than the pandemic!
Harrison Liu
38:01
Dave ROCKS!!
Theresa Russell
38:34
Definitely agree with that, Harry!
Cheryl Andrews

Thanks, Laura

Were those really chocolate chips, Bob?
Bea Broda
42:47
I’m doing just fine, but I worry about the world we’ll be in after so many jobs are lost, businesses closed etc. But I keep focused on thinking that this too shall pass, and priorities might shift to actually have a better world.

Maybe now it's time to exhale, Dave.
Bea Broda

How does a humorist keep up their humour?
Ursula Maxwell-Lewis

I’m not crazy about Zoom ( Dave :) , but it has given me the opportunity to connect with SATW and TMAC members ‘in person’ more than in the past.
Charles McCool

LOVE Schitt’s Creek. Will watch it again.
jacqueline swartz
48:45
Why don't they have more episodes of Mozart in the Jungle?
Shelly Rivoli
49:00
I think we all know things we can do and should do for mental wellness, but any advice for getting back on the horse when we fall off?
Harrison Liu
49:02
I want a referral to Bob’s doctor
Bea Broda
49:16
They did that show here just north of Toronto near Orangeville.
Laura Powell
49:17
I went through Schitt's Creek in two weeks. Can't wait for season six to drop on Netflix in October. Another funny show--and I think it's really important to watch funny stuff--is Derry Girls.
Laura Del Rosso
49:31
Call My Agent on Netflix. It's hilarious and fun.
Bea Broda
49:55
Time to watch my show, Outta Town Adventures, on Amazon Prime ;-)
Anna McManus
50:06
Space Force with Steve Carell, too - highly recommend
Kim MacKinnon
51:09
Send in your questions everyone.
Shelly Rivoli
51:58
(repeat) I think we all know things we can do and should do for mental wellness, but any advice for getting back on the horse when we fall off?
Bea Broda
52:18
Is anyone taking any online courses to learn about a side interest?
Patricia Winn
55:54
Love Dave Barry! Also love these show recommendations. I've been hooked on Chef (Jon Favreau's Netflix series) and most recently, Love in the Time of Corona on Freeform. Online courses for relaxation: I've taken a few flower-arranging classes.
jacqueline swartz
56:05
How about fitness? I am doing Pilates classes most days.
Bea Broda
56:26
I got a certificate in world healing techniques, am taking one about indigenous culture in Canada, etc.
Theresa Russell
56:42
There's always one- I don't really watch tv even now.
Tom Adkinson

Grand Ole Opry star Little Jimmy Dickens used to joke that if he had to bend down to pick up someting off the floor he took the time to see whether there was anything else to do while there.
Cheryl Andrews
57:06
Funny, tom, thanks
Kim Beckius
57:12
Dave, Kim and anyone else who has sent a kid off to college this fall... any tips for feeling upbeat about how the semester might unfold?
Laura Powell
57:22
Language classes, my travel writer friends. I finished Duolingo's Italian course over two months. A great daily distraction/habit and useful, too.
Bea Broda
58:25
sorry, must run. Loved seeing everyone! Stay safe and well!
Kim Beckius
01:01:17
Thank you all!
Elizabeth Hansen
01:01:24
I'm taking Pilates twice a week via Zoom and also Vedanta philosophy classes. I see this "pause" as an opportunity to tackle projects that I've been putting off for years.
Susan Pollack
01:02:12
I’m doing two hours of online exercises classes every Tuesday and Thursday. Also subbing on a women’s golf league most Mondays — it’s great to get outside! One pandemic benefit early on, purging piles untouched for decades: I found 50-year-old love letters from boyfriends I barely remember, including one who went off to Vietnam..
Harrison Liu
01:02:25
lol
Larry Bleiberg
01:02:29
To Dave: how would you have handled being a college student stuck at home during the pandemic?
Patricia Winn
01:03:01
Very cool, Sue Pollack
Meryl Pearlstien
01:03:21
The Peloton app is great even if you don’t use the bike. Yoga, stretch, weights, etc
Jane Wooldridge
01:03:40
Does anyone have a good pilates site?
jacqueline swartz
01:04:19
Yes, Body Harmonics. email inquiries@bodyharmonics.com
Meryl Pearlstien
01:04:38
How do you feel about sending young kids to school now
jacqueline swartz
01:04:43
Or contact me and I'll tell you about it. Many classes.
Meryl Pearlstien
01:05:19
Yes - More (Pilates) with Mor on Facebook is great! and Mindful Movement with Mor
Meryl Pearlstien
01:06:18

Harrison Liu

Yay Cats!

I’m renewing my acquaintance with wineries, berry farms and other farm stands throughout the Fraser Valley. Great material for my columns. Hearing a lot of “Hey, I haven’t been there in years! Time to return” One column just out is about a Lower Mainland Raptor Rescue Centre. Great for families - and da boids can do with da cash!
Tom Adkinson
01:11:29
I feel an urge to encourage people these days. That’s why the closing on my correspondence is this: “Stay healthy, be safe and drink only good liquor.” (I’ve officially bought my last bottle of mediocre booze.)
Theresa Russell
01:11:45
Feline fan here! Dogs- not so much. Two strikes against me - no dogs and no tv.
Cheryl Andrews
01:12:00
More great advice, Tom
Patricia Winn
01:12:18
Agreed, Tom
Jane Wooldridge
01:12:28
Sarah - You should tell everyone about your Instagram fashion parades!
Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon
01:13:15
Jane: But all I wear now is running clothes! not QUITE as interesting!
Jane Wooldridge
01:13:54
Ah but you still dress up for the hallways!
Elizabeth Hansen
01:15:24
Im still writing a monthly travel feature, which is challenging since most people arent traveling. takes about 3 times as long as usual.
Harrison Liu
01:16:47
Yay @Jetsetsarah!
Tom Adkinson
01:16:51
Agreed, Elizabeth Hansen. I’m writing a bit, and connecting with sources is challenging.
Meryl Pearlstien
01:16:57
