I call BS

Things we eat and drink are constantly being challenged or championed. Certain food items are bad for our health, then good. Lately I watched as stories were pushed touting first coffee then moderate consumption of alcohol as contributing to a long life.

As someone who has drank his fair share of each, I was first heartened to read these stories, but skeptical nevertheless. Therefore I asked that world renowned expert, Dr Google, if Mormons have a longer life expectancy than Americans as a whole. They do, and by roughly 10 years.

Mormons famously drink neither alcohol nor coffee. If the recent reports are true, they would add another 5 or 6 years to their lives if they did. I'm sure they won't and that if they did it wouldn't help.

Cool Design Makes Fruit Fun and Easy to Eat

Ok, I guess most of you think fruit is already easy to eat. Kiwis however require a little work, though they are well worth it. That fuzzy skin, think two day beard, is not good eats.

I happened on Mighties in the produce section amoungst the other fruit aimed at the school lunch crowd. The spoon knife packed with the kiwis is genius! The spoon has a nice rounded edge that scoops the kiwi out of the fuzzy skin. Just cut an end off with the knife end and scoop with the spoon.

It's fun!
