Birds of a Feather Get Shot Together – if They’re Turkeys

It's just about wild turkey hunting time in the Tri-State, and just like the lyrics that are sung in "Chevy Van," by Sammy Johns, "...and that's all right with me!"  Sorry, but I don't like wild turkeys.  They are, in my mind, just like deer - a nuisance.  They wander around aimlessly with no real purpose, running onto rural roadways and causing automobile accidents.  They spread ticks and lice, too.  So, I say, let the hunting games begin!

Tons of Peanut Butter Get Dumped in Landfill

It turned into a sticky situation and I'm glad it didn't happen in Evansville.  About 25 tons of peanut butter that was okay for anyone to eat was purposefully dumped into a landfill in Clovis, New Mexico.  Why?  That's a little complicated.

Short on Money? Spend it on These Inexpensive Superfoods

All of my adult life, money has never been plentiful.  When Jenny and I got married, we decided that even if money was short, we wouldn't skimp on quality food to eat.  In other words, we would eat healthy foods even if we had to spend a little more money to get them, and to do that, we would sacrifice in other areas, if need be.  It's always been important to us to eat nutritionally-packed foods, as opposed to getting by on cheaper but not-so-healthy foods.  So if you want healthy nutrition on a cheaper budget, try these (relatively) inexpensive "superfoods."

We Feel What We Eat and Our Moods Are the Result

Springtime is here and we're all bound to feel a little bit better because of it, but there are other things that can affect our mood and we may not realize it.  I'm not referring to how your spouse or coworkers are treating you, I'm referring to more covert things that can affect your mood, such as what you eat.

Saturday night, Jenny prepared this hot dip that has a little different flavor to it and it's one you might enjoy.  It's perfect with crackers or tortilla chips (my preference), it's easy to make, and I especially like the melted cheese with the spinach.

March 20 is Meatout Day (No Meat) – Not For Me!

At first I was excited that today was "Meatout" Day because I thought the term meant that you are supposed to go to a restaurant and eat meat!  You know, meat - out.  Then I found out what it really meant and I got kind of depressed.  Why?  Because I'm an omnivore, that's why.  Sure, I eat lots of plants, but I also enjoy eating meats.  So could I go for a day without eating meat?
