A Time for Choosing

***Tomorrow marks 50 years since Ronald Reagan's "A Time for Choosing" speech. Oh, to have another one like him.

"The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people," Reagan said. "And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing."
 He certainly was prescient.

***Government trying to control internet. Keep Democrats in power, and it will happen. VOTE.

***Atheists want to stop high schoolers from praying. Why? How does it hurt them? Answer? It doesn't. And don't let them give you that "separation of church and state" crap. They simply cannot abide someone having another viewpoint.


To Autumn
by William Blake
O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain’d
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may’st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.

“The narrow bud opens her beauties to
The sun, and love runs in her thrilling veins;
Blossoms hang round the brows of Morning, and
Flourish down the bright cheek of modest Eve,
Till clust’ring Summer breaks forth into singing,
And feather’d clouds strew flowers round her head.

“The spirits of the air live in the smells
Of fruit; and Joy, with pinions light, roves round
The gardens, or sits singing in the trees.”
Thus sang the jolly Autumn as he sat,
Then rose, girded himself, and o’er the bleak
Hills fled from our sight; but left his golden load.
To wear a smaller size, gain weight
Muscle weight, that is. If two women both weigh 150 pounds and only one lifts weights, the lifter will more likely fit into a smaller pant size than her sedentary counterpart. Likewise, a 150-pound woman who lifts weights could very well wear the same size as a 140-pound woman who doesn't exercise. The reason: Although a pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle, muscle takes up less space, said Mark Nutting, fitness director of SACO Sport & Fitness in Saco, Maine.
"You can get bigger muscles and get smaller overall if you lose the fat," he said. "The bulk so many women fear only occurs if you don't lose fat and develop muscle on top of it."
Cut back on calories and add weight to your workout to lose inches.

To eat less, eat more
Grabbing a 100-calorie snack pack of cookies or pretzels may seem virtuous, but it's more likely to make you hungrier than if you ate something more substantial, said Amy Goodson, RD, dietitian for Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine.
"Eating small amounts of carbohydrates does nothing but spike your blood sugar and leave you wanting more carbs."
Goodson recommends choosing a protein such as peanut butter or string cheese with an apple.
"They are higher in calories per serving, but the protein and fat helps you get full faster and stay full longer—and you end up eating fewer calories overall," she said.

There's always a catch.

                      GOT IT!

***"Cease, every joy, to glimmer on my mind,
But leave---oh! leave the light of Hope behind." -- Thomas Campbell (1777 - 1844)

***Have a great day!
