When I was quite little, I fell in love with a life-size baby doll that was on display in a department store shortly before Christmas. Mother explained that all of our belongings were already packed for the movers to take so there was no way to have it. By Christmas, we were staying with Grandma because we didn't have a new home yet, us kids all in sleeping bags in the living room. When I woke up on Christmas morning and opened my eyes, the baby doll was staring right back at me from under the tree! I never did learn how Santa Claus knew what I wanted most...or later how Mom got it from Arizona to Washington. This was back in the very early 1960's,..there was no FedEx or UPS, no next-day delivery or any of the conveniences we find so normal today.

If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. -Samuel Adams, revolutionary (27 Sep 1722-1803)

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment. -Ansel Adams, photographer (20 Feb 1902-1984)

Christmas eve when I was still a child: coming back from a long afternoon walk through the cold (sometimes even snow) to candles, cookies, cake, coffee (for my parents) and hot chocolate (for me) before opening the first presents on Christmas eve. I wasn't allowed to see the decorated Christmas tree before that, so seeing the tree was almost as big a surprise as the gifts were.

Answer:
True
Forget the "all or nothing" mentality when it comes to exercise. Fitness does not live or die by 60-minute workouts; there is middle ground. Short spurts of exercise, when they accumulate, have been shown to share similar benefits of longer workouts.

True or False:
Your workouts don't have to be continuous. You can break them up throughout the day into smaller segments (at least 10 minutes each) and achieve the same benefits.

True
False

Bite-sized finger foods they disappear in your mouth so quickly, and it is so easy to lose track of how many you've had ...

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Each person has a different opinion of body image. I think we are moving beyond the idea that model image is true beauty. As my dad always said beauty is as beauty does.

Body image? I do believe I've forgotten just what that means! Therefore, I have been blessed with the wisdom of age. emoticon
