Tuesday Tidbits

Have you ever wondered why just anyone is allowed to have kids?
THIS is just unbelievable!

It's getting nicer and nicer out. For the rest of the week it is supposed to be in the mid to upper 50's and sunny every day. I looked in the back yard this weekend and my daffodils are just starting to peek out of the ground! That being said..average date for the last snowfall here is April 22 so we're not pulling the lawn furniture out just yet!!

Thursday is our 33rd wedding anniversary. We don't have anything special planned for it. May take a mini road trip this weekend if we can think of somewhere good to go. I am dying to get away if only for one night.

I was reading a article in Readers Digest that said that studies have proven that taking antioxidents and various vitamins does not really lessen the risk of getting cancer and heart disease. I (used to) take a multivitamin, an aspirin and a fish oil tablet every day. According to the article, if you eat a healthy diet you do not need to take any supplements. However, there is more and more evidence that Vitamin D is THE super vitamin. Since I read that article, I only take my calcium and 1000 IU of vitamin D, along with my regular medications for diabetes and hypothyroidism.

It's a lot less pills to take every day and I feel so free!

The whole vitamin/supplement thing is a mystery!

I saw that about that poor little boy on the news this morning. Right after that story, there was one where a "boyfriend" tossed a 1 month old baby down a trash chute from one of the higher floors. Some folks should be hung, plain and simple.

Happy Anniversary! Best wishes for many more!

I agree with you about parenthood. Just because someone was born with the equipment, doesn't mean they should use it to create children!

Please don't take the calcium supplements at the same time as your thyroid medicine. Calcium interferes with absorption. They recommend minimum of 4 hours inbetween.

How do you "loose" your child??????

And that would specifically be, D3....It's the best.
Hubby and I take 3000units a day. Working up to 5 or 6.
Happy Saint Patricks Day to you!!
