Healthy Living, Part Deux -- Our Healthy Living issue (Jan. 29) was several weeks ago, but we're still getting lots of reader feedback. In fact, one reader took umbrage with the fact that our piece on yoga focused on just two studios (Harmony and City Yoga) while neglecting the Radha Center in Browne's Addition and FSG on West Main. The Radha Center (part of a network of similar centers in British Columbia, Alberta and Washington) has been a significant part of the yoga community for more than 15 years, and also offers a wide variety of classes and workshops in Eastern philosophy-based spiritual traditions. FSG, which stands for Form, Style and Grace, was founded by Elizabeth McElveen just a few years ago but now runs the risk of overflowing its beautiful old brick-walled space near the Rocket on Main. Classes there include a variety of different yoga styles (including Ashtanga, or Power, Yoga) as well as Pilates, Nia and Yoga for Children. In addition to the city's four main studios, there are also some fine home-based studios throughout Spokane, as well as great classes for beginners at the Valley Y.





You Scream, We Scream ... -- Our first thought when we read this press release was "these folks have waaay too much time on their hands." But here it is anyway: Cold Stone Creamery has just announced their nominations for "Best Ice Cream Creation in a Motion Picture Category," which are: Lord of the Pecans: The Return of the Caramel, Minty River, Lost in Banana Splitation, Strawberry-iscuit, and Mastermallow and Chocomander. Ballots can be cast at www.coldstonecreamery.com, but of course you'll have to visit a Cold Stone location near you to sample the goods, whipped up on a freezing slab o' granite. In fact, why not make up your own movie-themed creations? How about "Hobbit Nut Crunch" or "Tokyo High-Class Prostitute Surprise"?





Not Just Kid Stuff -- Big kudos to G.U. literature professor Beth Cooley, who recently won the Delacorte Press Prize for her timely, affecting, first Young Adult novel, Ostrich Eye! Cooley will be at Auntie's Bookstore on Friday, Feb. 13, at 7:30 p.m. to read from and discuss her new book, with an engagement the following week at the Children's Corner Bookshop on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 1 p.m.





Here's an Idea? -- Still looking for something to do this Valentine's Day weekend? We were amused by a suggestion seen on the letter board of the Valley Noodle Express: "Lonely on Valentine's Day? Get a Wrap! " Oh yeah, nothing provides romance and companionship quite like a tortilla filled with beans and vegetables and stuff...
