So you’ve probably heard about this barre class we’ve been swooning about and Maya, our newest addition at Soulflower Yoga. Certified Barre Instructor and Registered Yoga Teacher Maya Augelli will be teaching our Thursday evening barre classes at 7:15 p.m. starting September 5th to help and connect. What exactly is barre you ask? Barre takes elements from ballet, yoga and Pilates and combines them all into one class to create a full body, low impact workout to promote health and wellness. Wondering what you’ll need to bring to class? We provide the barre, light weights - if you’d like to use them - and the instructor, you just need to bring yourself, water, a positive, fun attitude and most importantly and absolutely required, socks with grips on the bottom. We’ll have some for sale at the studio if needed. If you have more questions, e-mail us, message us on social media or stop by the studio. Hope to see you in class on Thursday, September 5th!

Maryland officials are testing new technology installed in vehicles that prevents the car from moving if the driver’s had too much to drink. The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety analyzes the driver’s breath — there’s no need for a separate device — and if the sensors in the vehicle pick up a given level of alcohol, the engine will turn over, but the car won’t move. By allowing the car to start, the driver can then charge their phone and call a cab or a ride-hailing service. The sensors can be set to “zero tolerance” in the case of teen drivers, or can be set to 0.08, the legal limit.

 

This Exit 19 Productions video shows Mike Casey foraging for food with his friend Chef Phil Manganaro. They find some berries, get mosquito bites and Chef Phil makes some homemade root beer. Exit 19 Productions is a group of comedians, writers, funny people and degenerates trying to make people laugh or give them a little bit of knowledge - hopefully a bit of both.

Freezing maintains the natural color, fresh flavor, and high nutritive value of fresh foods. The objective is to bring foods to the frozen state quickly. When properly done, fruits and vegetables are more like fresh than when preserved by any other method. Best of all, freezing vegetables and fruit is fast and easy. You don’t need a lot of time or years of experience to preserve garden-fresh fruits and vegetables. Organized in a friendly, food-by-food format, readers will find “The Beginner’s Guide to Preserving Food at Home” by Janet Chadwick an invaluable reference. Freezing, drying, canning, and storing instructions are available for each vegetable, fruit, and herb, and in many cases, several methods for freezing fruits and vegetables or canning food are described.

Evans, a retired computer executive, Air Force veteran and and avid photographer, died Thursday from complications of pneumonia at his home in the Cloisters in the Woodbrook neighborhood of Baltimore County.
