Melanie, Casimir, Mei-Ling, Steven, Priscilla, and Elizabeth all came over for a visit with us last night. We had lots of laughs, some good philosophical discussion and of course food. The pictures I took of Melanie and Casi came out with a bit of a blur so that is why no pictures of them. Mei-Ling is a Grampy's girl as you can see in the picture. She just loves him. What a blessing for Emery and I to be so surrounded by love. It is what life is all about.
Emery had an interesting experience. He is Mr Healthy, and it shows. But this past week he has been nibbling on the fudge I made at Christmas and has been hungrier than I have ever seen him. He said he feels starving at each meal and that is just not like him. He couldn't figure out why he was so hungry all the time, and then I mentioned that the fudge is made with marshmallow cream, a product made from Corn Syrup, the very ingredient that increases a persons appetite. The very ingredient found in just about everything on the store shelves. No wonder we are such a fat nation. We eat a diet high in corn syrup and then we are all hungry. Good for the stores, good for the Doctors (health issues from obesity), good for the drug companies (medications needed from weight issues), but not good for the people.
