Where did the summer go? All of a sudden I hear people are heading back to school! Several of my kin are starting college, returning to college, or getting ready for same.
The difference is these kids are going in comfort! Everywhere there are sales of color coordinated decorations, dorm size applicances, and all sorts of things to make you feel like you're at home.
Needless to say I didn't have these things when I went to college, back in the stone age.
I am jumping on the bandwagon and offering convenient gift cards for these back to schoolers. That way they can buy what THEY want, which I'm pretty sure is different than what YOU would buy them. This way everyone is happy, and I get a little kickback.

Today we saw this movie. I knew it was going to be one of those movies that make you think, but it was more intense than I was prepared for. If this movie is telling the truth (and it FELT like the truth) then things are in a worse state than I'd ever imagined.
This movie made me cry. It also made me angry, and fearful, and determined! What do you do after you see this movie? Where do you channel that need to want to change the way things are?

It's a start. The most hopeful thing I brought away from this movie was the notion that the Tabacco Industry was brought down. If that can happen to the tabacco lobby, it can happen to the food lobby. It is time. Let's make a change.
