First of all Happy Birthday to my Momma today! We both have to work today, but I did get to spend some time with her yesterday during the kindergarten field trips out to the ranch. I have a really great picture of me and my mom but naturally I can't find it right now.
She is pretty much the best mom ever and I have to admit it is only now that I am a mother that I can truly appreciate all that she did for us and she had four kids. She is the reason I became an OR nurse, she was one many years until she started working in a plastic surgeons office.
I feel truly blessed to have such a great Mom. Happy Birthday Momma!
Every now and then I come across some really good links and I collected some of them here to share.
The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease
This is great and sad, that we were all duped by faulty research and so many people still believe all of this. used to buy the Costco sized tubs of I Can't Believe its Not Butter. Now I can't believe people still buy that. It tastes nasty!
What you don't know about farms will stun you I love this, as someone who grew up on a ranch it all seemed so ordinary, but as one of my readers commented lately
Whoa--sometimes I forget that ranching really happens. It seems like another world to me--a very lovely, idyllic other world.Only 2% of Americans are living on family farms and ranches, that is a lot of people who are removed from the food supply.
Farmland showing locations. If you are curious about your food supply, watch this. It isn't a we want to shock and scare you kind of documentary. but a real look, an honest look at who grows your food and how they do it. I really wish they would have this showing near me. I think this is a great documentary that helps people get more in touch with the people who are growing crops and raising animals unlike Chipotle's negative spin on all of it just for the sales.
Also I ran 5.5 miles yesterday. NO foot pain! None.. yay!
and the kindergarten classes had field trips out to the ranch yesterday

My momma cat did not like the commotion and I spent half an hour coaxing her back out from under the truck back into the carrier. My dad didn't think he wanted a barn cat :)
