Eggs have come under fire in a cholesterol-obsessed culture, but new research suggests that “an egg a day is safe and nutritious for most adults and you’ll boost yours odds of losing weight.”  Pork tenderloin is 31 percent leaner than 20 years ago and that makes white meat a lean source of protein with benefits similar to those of lean beef.  Rather than avoiding pasta, make the switch to whole grain and keep the portions small.

Birthday greetings to Lorene Thurman on August 21, Allene Camp on August 22 and Herman Prock on August 24.  May many happy more come your way.

The Jam Session on Monday night was once again a great place to be.  We appreciated the children coming and playing a guitar and clogging on the stage.  We’ll do it again next Monday night, the Lord willing and the creek don’t rise.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work–Thomas Edison.

Until next week, have a great one!
