So, what have you done? 😀  (I’d like to know what I did to double space some of those…so I could undo it!)


Sheri posted about Twosey Tuesday in her blog. And since I feel the same way about those emails as she does, I will join her, as this is only two questions. My kind of meme!

Two things you are wearing right now:
1. A pair of malachite drop earrings I bought on a trip to Colorado with hubby in 1991
2. My hair down 😉

Two things you did last night and remember this is a family show:
1. Went grocery shopping
2. Stayed up past midnite

Guess I’d better get this posted while it’s still Tuesday, eh? See you next week, Sheri! 😀

I’ve just discovered that I’ve been tagged for a book meme by Sheri.  icon_biggrin.gif

Rules of the meme:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people

Hmmmm….A few inches from my left hand is Gary Taubes’ Good Calories, Bad Calories: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Control, and Disease.  A meaty 601 pages; the last 140 of which contain endnotes, the bibliography, and index.  Well documented! 

(Why, oh, why does my blog make italicized words red?)

Taubes is an award winning correspondent for Science magazine.  His point in a nutshell?  Everything we’ve been led to believe about low-fat/high carb diets and their use in the  prevention of obesity, heart disease, and other ailments is wrong.  No wonder he’s making waves! 

Anyway…..page 123….This brings us to Chapter 7:  Fiber.

(OK, before I continue I need to reveal my inner engineer….because I want to know – need to know: Should I start counting with the first complete sentence on the page?  Do I include the fifth sentence and post sentences 5, 6, and 7?  The instructions seem to indicate that I should post 6, 7, and 8, do they not?  Why not just say that?  OK….I’m done with that weirdness.  I shall start with the sentence that appears on the first line of the page – even though it begins on page 122, and post the 3 sentences after the fifth one.  Does your mind ever work like this?  You have my sympathy.)

Here we go:

Cohen testified that there was no “direct relationship” linking heart disease to dietary fats, and that he had been able to induce the same blood-vessel complications seen in heart disease merely by feeding sugar to his laboratory rats.  Peter Cleave testified to his belief that the problem extended to all refined carbohydrates.  “I don’t hold the cholesterol view for the moment,” Cleave said, noting that mankind had been eating saturated fats for hundreds of thousands of years.

I haven’t gotten that far yet, so I really can’t properly put it into context for you.  You’ll just have to read the book yourself. 😉  I was going to post about Good Calories, Bad Calories anyway, so Sheri’s tag was great timing.  As for me tagging five friends, I believe most, if not all of you, have already been tagged!  If, however, you’re a quiet visitor to my blog…consider yourself tagged.  Keep it going. icon_biggrin.gif

As for me and my book…it’s time to snuggle up on the sofa. 😉
