A few years back I was a subscriber to O Magazine, Oprah’s monthly feel-good product. There was usualy one item each month I was glad I found, an article, recipe, or piece of advice I could use. After a couple of years I relaized that one item a month wasn’t worth the subscription, so I cancelled it.

One article (back in 2008) I found was Dr. Oz’s Ultimate Beauty Test.  I thought I’d take it from time to time and see how (if) my attitude changes. (The previous version was in my hardcopy journal.) Here goes:
