No spring, nor summer beauty

             hath such grace
As I have seen in

            one autumnal face;

Using Honey Instead Of Sugar: You can substitute honey for up to half of the sugar called for in baking (coat your measuring cup with oil for easy cleanup). Reduce liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey and add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Reduce oven temperature by 25 degrees to prevent over-browning.


Zinc And Type 2 Diabetes: A Finnish study reported by Johns Hopkins Health Alerts followed type 2 diabetes patients between the ages of 45 and 64. Those who had lowest levels of zinc in their blood at the start of the study were more likely to have a heart attack or die during the 7-year period.

Foods containing high levels of zinc include meat, seafood, chicken, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, beans, and peas.

Nutrient Packaging

The latest fad is buying vegetables in bags that are ready to open and eat. Studies were conducted as soon as these appeared on the market, and to everyone's surprise the nutrient content was excellent, even to the point of surpassing fresh in most cases.

The Lighter Side

Deep within a forest a little turtle began to climb a tree.

     After hours of effort he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs and crashed to the ground.

     After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground. The turtle tried again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts.

     Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.

     "Dear," she chirped, "I think it's time to tell him he's adopted."



The Perfect Hearing Aid


     A man was telling his neighbor, "I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me $4,000, but it's state of the art. It's perfect."

     "Really," answered the neighbor. "What kind is it?"

     "Twelve thirty."



Telling The Sex Of A Fly


     A woman noticed her husband holding a fly swatter and asked,  "Did you get any yet?"

     "Yep, 3 males, 2 females," he replied.

     "How do you know?"

     "Three were on a beer can and two were on the phone."
