Go Nuts!

This isn’t about doing a cart-wheel in your office, though you need to get out of your chair.  This is about the health advantages of eating nuts!

A recent study over a long period of time with over 100,000 people and analyzed by habits. shows eating nuts every day decreases health issues by 20%.  Here is the study.

Contrary to myth, nuts do not make you fat as this study confirms.  In fact nuts have a higher protein to sugar level than any snack.  The study was done regardless if the nuts were roasted, dry roasted, salty, unsalted or grown on a tree or in the ground.

Also you want to increase the good fat, lower the bad fat and lower your sugar intake.  Nuts help you achieve that.

The squirrel above looks fat because he is about to hibernate and go without food for 6 months.

So nuts to you!

The Road To A Legacy

This post is about my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great-grandfather, Reuben Dye.  He settled in the Flint Township area of Michigan back in 1843 so he wasn’t that old but he was really great.

dye_roadThe reason he was so great is he was ahead of his time.  He was one of the first of about eight settlers in that Michigan area.  He had a farm and a road that eventually became Dye Road.  This was 50 years before gas buggies were invented.

Eventually Flint, the town to the east, became the automotive capital of the world.. So whether he was forward thinking or just plain lucky, I will never know. But what I do know is he is dead but his legacy lives on via that well-traveled road in Michigan.
