Only in Texas . . . .

can you wear shorts and a tank top with the air conditioner running one day, and the next day be wearing winter clothes with the fireplace on.  Might add the day  after that we had sleet !!  and  south Texas had snow !!!

 

Having lived in Texas all my life I can say that snow is just about as rare as hens teeth in the places I’ve lived  –  especially in December.  Sleet and snow are more like January and February weather.  It is pretty though.

Canola

 

Saw an article on canola the other day. You all know how I avoid it like the plague.  Now, in addition to the previously reported problems associated with it, seems  we can now add negative brain effect to the list.

 

In a published study, they report . . .

 

” A new study by researchers at Temple University found that mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease fed diets containing canola oil showed worsened memories and learning ability as well as weight gain.”

And if you are checking foods that have canola as an ingredient you can now add Ramen Noodle Soup to that list. Hate to say ‘good-bye’ to that one, we like it as a side dish with a sandwich in the winter.  Not to worry,  I’m switching to Lipton soup – no canola.

Angels

I’ve always thought we each have a guardian angel. And think that mine must be working overtime with everything I’ve  been through.  So when I saw this article the other day, found it interesting in that it lists six things angels do for us.

 

  • Guard and protect
  • Communicate God’s message
  • Observe you
  • Encourage you
  • Deliver you
  • Care for us at death

 

I’m sure there must be more that they do but these six things certainly are a comfort. If you would like to read the article in its entirety, please visit this link.

 

Coming

I’m going to share what I like to think is  my personal angel encounter for my Christmas blog. And next week, please check back as I’m posting the recipe for my Christmas cake – the one I think David would eat all by himself in one sitting . . . if I’d let him.
