Just as "This Is Us" has created hysteria around slow cookers, "documentaries" have created hysteria around meat and milk. Are we really so unaware the difference between fiction and good television that we can't recognize reality?

"And don’t think you have to become America’s Top Chef to bring your family together for a meal. Even breaking (hopefully whole grain) bread over a spread that you ordered in from a restaurant can still allow you to share conversations. Try to enlist some help in menu planning and food shopping by getting your kids involved in preparation."

Is bias in teaching going the same way as the rampant bias in journalism? Should we be questioning teachers who promote their own agenda in a classroom? This is not a new problem, but a social studies teacher showing a Chipotle film to our friends’ seventh grade class has left me questioning what is wrong with our educational system.

As you walk through the barns at the fairgrounds, it’s stories like these that illustrate the love and respect poured into show animals. It’s true of every species. Know that there was a young person who likely put in some 18-hour days to get those animals ready for the fair. The care of these animals is a story worthy of being told to the people who don’t know what it’s like to get up at 3 a.m. to wash cows or prepare animals with gloss and glitter on show day so they can look their best while their owners are dripping in sweat. What lessons can you share from the county fair?
