SUMMIT, NJ - One hundred pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids, and suffering from an autoimmune disease, Joe Cross was at the end of his rope. Doctors and conventional medicines were unable to help long term, so Cross turned to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food, hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days.
 
The Film Society of Summit will host the area premiere of "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead," a documentary directed by Cross about his mission to regain his health. Beginning at 8 p.m. October 23 at MONDO, the film will be followed by discussion and a juicing demo, lead by Micheal DeSanti who has worked with Cross.
 
During his journey, Cross talks to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, and it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition.
 

Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.  

Admission is $12 in advance, $14 at the door, and advance tickets can be purchased at smarttix.com and at MONDO Summit. Seating is limited. For further information, contact The Film Society of Summit at 973-885-1983, via summitfilm@gmail.com or by visiting summitfilmsociety.com.
 
MONDO is located at 426 Springfield Avenue.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
