"There's no doubt in my mind that maybe two years from now or five years from now or ten years from now, we are going to find out what we know intuitively, that thimerosal, the mercury in the vaccines, absolutely causes autism and other learning disabilities." -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.


"Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos - the trees, the clouds, everything."
-Thich Nhat Hanh


"We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are."
-Adelle Davis


"The body, simply put, can heal itself of nearly all chronic degenerative diseases or conditions in much the same way it heals a cut or a sprain. The human body is a self-repairing system, after all. What you have to do is give it the right nutritional tools so it can unleash its fullest healing potential. And that comes from natural medicines found in the world of nutrition."
-Mike Adams


"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship."

In Logical Fashion

Yesterday when I was in Walmart with Noah and Jabin, we saw a stack of licensed T-shirts in children's sizes that were only $7 each. Notably, there were several types of Angry Birds shirts, for which they had been asking. This game has not yet lost its popularity in our house. Since the price was reasonable, and within budget, I said we could get some for each kid. (Actually, Jude got Sonic the Hedgehog, since that's more his "thang". When he got home from school and found out, he was thrilled.)

The boys were so excited, they could barely wait to wear them. When we got home, the first thing Noah did was take his out of the shopping bag and try to remove the tag. Daddy got the announcement and Show-and-Tell from each kid when he walked in the door. With that kind of anticipation, and after several requests from Jabin, I made sure that I washed them all last night, even folding them in the wee hours on my way to bed so they would be ready for the boys to wear this morning.

When I came out this morning, Jabin was dressed in his new shirt, Noah was sitting on the couch in his p.j.s.

Me:
Time to get dressed, Noah! Your new shirt is on the dryer, if you want to wear it.

Noah:
No, I'm going to wear it Saturday.

Me:
     (taken aback)
You're not wearing it today?

Noah:
No, I always wear new shirts on Saturdays.

     (Pause.)

Me:
Why?

Noah:
Because.

     (Crickets chirping.)

Me:
Oh.

What he didn't say but was thinking way far back of his brain is that it is a video game shirt. So you wear it on the day you are allowed to play lots of video games. Come on Mom it's obvious.
