Oh, snap. I don't follow football so much but just got some good tips for stars to add to my Fantasy Football league. I've added Nyquillus Dillwad, Fartrell Cluggins on already.

I'm floored. Debunking one of the foundations of nutrition guidelines takes guts. As a vegetarian of almost two decades this won't have the slightest impact on my food choices but I can see that this is a big deal.

PS. Nutrition is confusing.

"Dr. Keys was formidably persuasive and, through sheer force of will, rose to the top of the nutrition world—even gracing the cover of Time magazine—for relentlessly championing the idea that saturated fats raise cholesterol and, as a result, cause heart attacks.... As the director of the largest nutrition study to date, Dr. Keys was in an excellent position to promote his idea.... Critics have pointed out that Dr. Keys violated several basic scientific norms in his study.... In 1961, Dr. Keys sealed saturated fat's fate by landing a position on the nutrition committee of the American Heart Association, whose dietary guidelines are considered the gold standard.... Too much institutional energy and research money had already been spent trying to prove Dr. Keys's hypothesis. A bias in its favor had grown so strong that the idea just started to seem like common sense...."

Well, that's a policy, too, if that's what you mean. Whatever our mom (maybe dad) did to widen our palates was for the better.

I recognize I make choices for them each time I bring something home from the grocery store. Snacks are chosen from the limited things we have in the house, of course. I offer new foods often and get them involved in our weekly meal planning. We do taste tests often and talk about what we like and don't like.

But telling kids - I remember your coaxing one kid to eat when he didn't want to and another not to when he wanted to continue. Those are all based on what you think is the right thing to do. You might usually tell them what to eat but there is guidance.

That children's chorus is a nice touch. Gratitude for one another, reminder to enjoy the season, mention of Christmas - all the important elements of a holiday classic.

Does this guy survive this predicament? (Spoiler: yes, like a boss.) It took me several views just to believe what I was seeing.

Rule 1: don't hurt others. Rule 2: clear space for someone down or hurt. Rule 3: don't get hurt. Rule 4: have fun.

Not new but new to me. What a thrill to watch. Just wish it was a much much longer set.

Werner Renovations can do it all and communicate very well throughout the process. We've worked with Werner to mend a roof, renovate from a winter storm that ruins some walls and a few other things. It is very easy to work with Werner because he's an expert at everything we've needed done, is very good about walking us through every aspect of the work, materials, timeline and cost. I don't expect him to drop things and rush to help us but he's been very accommodating in a couple of emergency situations. When a job starts I've always been prepared for discoveries or things that can impact cost and time frame. With Werner there are few surprises maybe because we got lucky but after working with him so much I'm more willing to believe that he is very good at anticipating and discussing these ahead of time. That way any surprises are just as likely to be happy surprises than problems. I have always been pleasantly surprised by his kind crew who is always attentive to dust in our house. They have always done a good job of coming in neatly, cordoning off areas that might contribute dust and done a super job of cleanup each day and at the end of their work. I will always call Werner first when there is a small or large maintenance or renovation for our house and I can recommend him very highly for your project as well.

We've had our eye on a car for a while and did some searching and found it at Motorcars Honda. After filling out a form for more info, Michael Mastropietro called back very soon to discuss the car, our situation and get the process started. We were coming from a couple of hours away and Michael was very accommodating in scheduling our visit. There were no complications at all. I spoke to Noah Daniel to get our financing in order. He helped me understand the lengthy paperwork process and helped design exactly the right package for us. We're very happy with the car and feel comfortable with the financing you provided and the coverage. Thanks Michael and Noah, for all your help.
