Any sentence that begins, “I don’t mean to sound unkind, but…” shouldn’t be finished.  (53)

If you make a habit of smiling, you will actually feel happier.  Don’t get stuck at a bump in the road:  admit your mistake, get over it, and move on.  And always, do more than is expected, not less.  (52)

Write thank you notes – especially to those not of the e-generation.  It’s a simple but essential element of good manners and a cornerstone of considerate behavior.  If there is any justice in this world, those who fail to employ this basic means of respecting their elders and acknowledging the generosity of others will surely lose their slot in Grandma’s Last Will and Testament!  (53)

Maintain a good attitude.  A positive, can-do attitude not only benefits you, but it may rub off on others as well.  (23)

Don’t buy cheap cheese.  (53)

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."

And what is the "something" we are aiming for here? Simply a life of robust good health in every important area - spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity. (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think. If you like what we are serving up, please tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by for a visit, too.
