For the American that can’t even afford to eat this most basic breakfast staple – that is sad
For the person whose cholesterol level will not allow them to eat – unfortunate, but mostly genetic in nature
For the religious that forbids them to eat this – stay true to your beliefs, but try it once
For the American Farmer – thank you
For the environmentally conscious among us – it’s a struggle, as this is certainly a combo that has its challenges
For traditions – certainly need to place in perspective and be grateful we can still eat this meal – this may not always be the case in the future – for good or bad
For the young sustainable – practice tolerance as you too will be in this place someday, but forge ahead with making this planet an inhabitable rock to live on centuries from now
Not the PGA Tour, but some exciting intercollegiate competition going on – The Firestone Invitational
Day 2 starts today, Oct 4, 2016 and University of Akron, the host, is just two (2) strokes behind Illinois State. I am fortunate enough to be there and watch the exciting action. What will the day bring?
Trees Make You Feel Younger, Keep you Healthier
The journal Scientific Reports found that residents of neighborhoods with higher tree density are less likely to have cardio-metabolic conditions such as hypertension, obesity and diabetes.
Maybe tree hugging is a good thing; at least from a work-life balance scenario! The study didn’t indicate exactly why working/living in a more tree-dense environment can make you feel seven (7) years younger or improve overall health as if you earned $10,000 more a year. Trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, remove pollutants from the air, improve a person’s overall sense of health when walking amongst them – all of which could account for their effects the researchers indicate.
Our native American Indians held the tree sacred and assigned medicinal and spiritual powers to different species. Heck, humanities first ‘wonder drug’ comes from the bark of the willow tree – Aspirin!
