             Let’s Talk Chocolate
             by Derri Cerbone
             of Tasty Image, Jupiter

Mother’s Day…Made with TLC
    America’s artisan chocolatiers are doing exciting
things in gourmet chocolate. Even if you never
touch chocolate yourself, you’re bound to know at
least one person for whom the mere mention of fine
chocolate renders other subjects trivial and
unimportant. With Mother’s Day fast approaching,
you’re challenged to come up with something                                             25% OFF
beyond the same old standard.
    A little chocolatier in each of us, this is the year
to do something different. Something that you never
did before and didn’t even think was possible. It’s
the year to make your very own chocolate creations,
under the watchful eye and guidance of an expert
candy maker, of course.
    One of the benefits to buying artisan chocolate
from a local candy maker is the incredible freshness
and the lack of preservatives that are stuffed into
commercially made bulk product. Of course, it’s
easy to go to Publix and pick up a box that has been
sitting on the shelf, add a sentimental card and give
a gift of chocolate…BUT, the taste, texture and
mouth watering aroma that escapes into the air upon
opening a box of freshly dipped truffles is unrivaled.
    With that in mind, Tasty Image has a plan for                           THINK CHOCOLATE SINCE 2003
you! We are inviting all chocolate lovers, or family
of chocolate lovers, to schedule an appointment with

it off with a special message printed directly onto        Surrounded with

The Marine Product is Being Marketed at 2011 Boat
Shows and Eventually will be Distributed Nationally

    PALM BEACH GARDENS -- With boat show season in full
swing, local inventor, Wayne Sirmans¸ has developed a marine
Flushing Stick to make flushing boat motors easier than ever
before. The product is being introduced at 2011 boat shows in
Florida and the intent is to eventually distribute it nationally. A boat
enthusiast himself, Sirmans developed, and is now manufacturing,
the Flushing Stick product.
    After maintaining boats in Florida, Sirmans came up with a
reliable product to conveniently clean boat engines. The Flushing
Stick adapts to fit any size boat motor and can be set up in a matter
of seconds. With only three combined pieces, this product is one of          Wayne Sirmans, inventor of The Flushing Stick, shows how

                 I HAVE ANSWERS

I suppose I should have answers, after being in the sports
medicine and rehab field for over 20 years. In fact,
probably half of what we offer is knowledge-sharing. We
prioritize these efforts at Jupiter Physical Therapy &
Wellness Center. We have assisted over a dozen
universities nationwide in the education and training of
students finishing work toward Doctorates in Physical
Therapy. We also get physicians and family members the
right information to assist them in therapeutic decision-
making. But what may surprise you is how easily
available to anyone these answers can be! Simply make a
phone call or go to our website. (With the advent of so
much information on the internet, it’s easy to use it as a
research tool.)

    Act One features Coppelia, the classic ballet story of love, comedy and magic.
It tells the story of Coppélia, a life-size doll created by the mad Doctor
Coppélius, who leaves her sitting at the balcony. She looks so human, that a boy
named Franz is mesmerized by her, forgetting his engagement to Swanhilda.
Swanhilda finds out that Coppélia is only a doll, and decides to impersonate her
to show Franz his foolishness. Act Two features Gems, a modern jazz ballet based
on George Balanchine’s “Jewels”.

Turkles the Movie is a Hit at
Palm Beach Film Festival
Filmed Entirely On Location Here, Besides Portraying
the Perils of Turtles, the Movie Allow Novices to Shine
  JUPITER -- The filming of “Turkles” was more than just
portraying the dangers Loggerhead Turtles face on our Florida
beaches. It was a low budget film that gave novice film makers
and actors here an opportunity to shine. And, that it did, as the
three showings at the Palm Beach International Film Festival the
end of March were sold out.
  Further, because of the success of the film at the Palm Beach venue,
the filmmakers were invited to enter the movie in three other highly
respected Florida film festivals. It has already been shown at the Boca
Raton City Film Festival and the Sunscreen Film Festival in St.
Petersburg with much acclaim. It will be shown at the Treasure Coast        Local film maker Frank Eberling. writer and director of

attending Camp Loggerhead and join forces to find out who is stealing turtle eggs.
During the process, the kids encounter a group of adult knuckleheads, similar to
“the gang that couldn’t shoot straight,” and begin to unravel the mystery. In the
end, the kids capture the poachers, the poachers go to jail and the kids win an
award for a documentary they are making.
  The film also has environmental overtones as interfering with turtle nesting is
vital to the animal's natural transition through life. It all makes for a good story and
is fun to watch.
  “Turkles” distribution is a possibility, Eberling said. “It probably won’t be shown
in theaters,” the film maker said, “but certainly will become available through
Netflex, Blockbusters, etc.The film will also be used for educational and
environmental purposes.”
  “Turkles” falls into the category of a low budget film. It was started with a
$200,000 budget, Eberling said, “but, we came in 10% below the announced
budget. Much of that is due to the fact that it involved mostly volunteers on staff.
The only people who really got paid were those members of the Screen Actors
Guild who received the minimum per diem rate.”
  Eberling believes “low budget film making is the wave of the future. I think we
are going to see very soon a surge of this kind of film production and it is sure to
have an impact on Hollywood. Kids grow up nowadays with all this new
technology that’s available and by the time they are 20 years old become very

    Saliva is an important component in oral health.
Not only does it help lubricate the oral tissues, it
also maintains a neutral-pH level that enables the
enamel of the teeth to stay strong. When acid levels
are raised, for example, after the consumption of
sugary foods, and not neutralized by the saliva, the
person is at a much higher rate of enamel
breakdown - CAVITIES! Even patients who have
had crowns or caps placed over their teeth can suffer
from dental decay.

   Next month, find out what you can do to help
prevent xerostomia and what you can do to combat
higher cavity risks which are associated with it!

Steppin’ Out by Bee Bee
Spring has sprung, fall has fell and right now it’s hotter than the devil out there in our
North County dining and entertainment scene. That means there is every opportunity for
you to enjoy a great dinner or listen to some incredible live entertainment. More and
more seems to be coming our way each month, and we’ve poised to tell you about as
much of it as we can.
Maxi’s Lineup, that terrific extension of the Food Shack, is bringing them in by the
dozens for extraordinary tapas and some of the greatest live music around at 103 S. U. S.
Highway One (Jupiter Square). One week we were really impressed with the blues of
Low Down 13 – that was after experiencing the Food Shack’s Plate Dinner (we had
shrimp, although you can get chicken and other meat or fish items with it and it comes
with rice – plus some extraordinary cucumber salad and a cup of tropical fruit). It was a
sub tropical diner’s dream come true. As for Low Down 13, look for them as our feature
Entertainment Spotlight feature for this month (page 48). If you get a chance to hear this
band, don’t hesitate. Then, what did we do but turn around the following week and made
a repeat visit to Maxi’s. This time, we were blown away by, just maybe, one of the best
bands we’ve heard - “Nouveux Honkies.” That’s French for “new honky-tonk,” I
believe. An exceptional female blues fiddle player, a masterful, male blues singer and
guitar player, a heck of a guy bass player and a most unique drummer/percussionist
comprise this group. They play some of the most unusual blues, or Americana as it is         Little Moir's
called, you’ll ever hope to hear. I mean, they made a blues song out of Roger Miller’s
“King of the Road,” and it was great. Well, there’s more we could say about them, but
we’ll save it for an entertainment feature in the near future. Wait a minute! Hold on!
Time has elapsed, and we found ourselves in Maxi’s again.- the third week in a row. We
thought we had heard the best of the best in local bands, but then listening to the Mario
Lacrasse Band was a whole other trip. We had heard Mario before, but this band was the
first time all personnel had played together and they were absolutely phenomenal. So, I
guess we are destined to do yet another entertainment spotlight on them. Speaking of
music, just check out this line-up at Maxi’s for May: Karaoke with Cowboy Calbert

Leftovers – is a must for your list of things to do. We believe that you’ll not find a more
creative seafood restaurant (plus a whole lot more) than these places – all under the Little
Moir’s banner. And, then there’s Maxi’s Lineup. Don’t forget it!
Can you believe that after 15 years The Beacon has a sandwich named after it? Thanks to
the creative minds of Fred and Tammy at ROMEO’S & Juliette’s Caffe, it has happened.
It is one of their daily lunch specials and it is called The Beacon Stir Fry Wrap. One day
it will be beef, the next day shrimp and another day chicken or something else – mixed
with stir-fry vegetables and rice in a whole-wheat wrap. Needless to say, it is absolutely
delicious. Lunch at this place consists mostly of subs, wraps, soups, salads and a few
other things. Experience a dinner at ROMEO’S & Juliette’s sometime. This is something
that is far from the normal, but dining you’ll never forget – romantic and sensual, if you
