Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

The phenols in oatmeal and the vitamin C in OJ both help make LDL more stable --- and that’s a good thing, because the more stable LDL is, the less likely it is to rupture, stick to artery walls, and cause [a heart attack]. But consume the phenols and vitamin C together and they’ll stabilize LDL at twice the level expected from adding their effects together.
A shameless plug from the Plush Duck: if you would like healthy tips like this delivered to your e-mail account, check out the Real Age website for yourself.

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
