Things sure have changed

A friend sent me this and you just have to read this stuff to believe it!  I can't believe we actually had some of this advertising back in the day!  Take a look:



For years, doctors and scientists have told us that some foods are good for us, only to be told later that they are bad for us, and again they tell us
that some foods are bad for us, and all the time they've been good for us.

There doesn't seem to be much proof either way to suggest what is good or bad, until now.

Looks like  "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT"  is true !!!   See the proof below! ....................


So, watch your Garlic intake ...

   Will I Live  to see 80?

Here's something to think about.

I recently picked a new primary care doctor.. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned 64)

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, “Do you think I'll live to be 80?”

He asked, “Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?”

“Oh no,” I replied,  “I'm not doing drugs, either!”

Then he asked, “Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?”

“I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!”

“Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?”

“No, I don't,” I said.

He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'

           “No,” I said.

          He looked at me and said, "Then, why do you even give a shit?"

A touching story

A hunter and his friend were sitting in a tall tower stand along Highway 17
near Kenora, Ontario early one cold December morning. Suddenly, a huge buck
walked out over the corn they had spread in the low shrubs ~ the buck was
magnificent...a once in a lifetime animal. His rack was huge. The hunter's
hand shook as his mind was already counting the Boone and Crockett

Moving quickly, the hunter carefully aimed the Leopold scope on his .300 Win Mag at the unsuspecting buck. As he was about to squeeze the trigger on this deer of a life time, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly down Highway 17.

The hunter pulled away from the gun stock, set the rifle down, took off his
hat, bowed his head, and then closed his eyes in prayer. His friend was stunned.

"Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen you
do. You actually let that trophy deer go to pay respects to a passing funeral procession. You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel lucky
to call you a friend."

The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we were married for 37 years"
