As a public service for readers hoping to avoid heart disease, here is the most up-to-date information available on diet and heart health:

 1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

In other words, eat and drink whatever you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Hunting and gathering, circa 1957

August 15, 2017

The description on YouTube claims that this film was made in 1962; however, according to the fine print in the film itself, it was made in 1957. In any case, if you’re a baby boomer who went grocery shopping with Mom back when you were a young whippersnapper, this will bring back memories. Watch all the way to the end to see how much an average mother paid for a shopping cart full of groceries in 1957 (not for the faint of heart).

Sunday musical offering

August 13, 2017

Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
Down He’ll send some heavenly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.

Refrain:
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not o’erflow me,
While my Savior’s by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me; 
Soon I’ll cross the swelling tide. (Refrain)

See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream; 
Sweet responses still repeating,
“Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. (Refrain)
