Chocolate

Sunday, February 14, 2010

I read an article about Tequila and the author said that a lot of people say they have had a bad experience with Tequila when what they mean is that they had an experience with bad Tequila.

The same is true for chocolate. Chocolate has beneficial anti-oxidant properties and is good for you when taken in moderation.

Number one: Eat good chocolate. bad chocolate tastes waxy and you keep eating more of it hoping it will taste better.

Number Two: Eat dark chocolate, at least 65% cocoa. This intensifies the anti-oxidant properties. Similarly, avoid milk chocolate which is loaded with sugar which is empty calories.

Number Three: Eat chocolate in moderation. Break or cut the chocolate into small pieces and savor each piece. You can chomp down on a Dove Promise and have it gone is about three seconds or you can merely let it melt in your mouth for several minutes of enjoyment.

Number Four: Pause. It takes a while for the message to get to our brain that our craving has been satisfied. Let the message get there and don't eat a pound of candy while you are waiting.

I agree whole heartedly with your message today!

Look for People With No Feet!

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Sometimes it seems that the bad stuff keeps piling up but I remember the proverb about the man who was sad that he had no shoes until he met a man with no feet. Bad stuff is going to happen, we need to get over it. There is always someone out there with no feet. It is said that the poorest, most destitute person in America is better off than 75% of the world's population. That's an awful lot of people with no feet.

    You make a good point. I raised my children with the attitude that there are always people out there that have it worse than ourselves.

Live and Learn!

There is no difference between living and learning...it is impossible and misleading and harmful to think of them as being separate.

Random Thoughts on Driving

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

The following random thoughts were excerpted from Z ig Ziglar's Daily Insights

If you have plans for tomorrow-drive safely today.

With all the vacation travel on the road, it's a good idea to drive with fender loving care.

One must be a speed reader these days if he expects to get the right exit off the freeway.

Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and don't understand in the one ahead.
