Blueberry

Thursday, October 15, 2015
Did you know that blueberries are only 100 years young? Blueberries are one of the few fruits native to America.  Blueberries are a  wonderful source of Vitamin C.   As we all know, Vitamin C is necessary for growth and development of tissues . A great antioxidant as well!  Another added bonus is, they help improve memory.  Let's get to my dessert made with fresh blueberries,  of course, I had to slip in some dark chocolate, which is also a great antioxidant.  See, healthy desserts!
 
Yes, graham crackers are used in this simple dessert.  Imagine how many different flavors we can use to create these sweet babies. We feel like we are eating healthy yummy desserts.  My husband told me last night, he loved these. Delicious! Just look at the added benefits!
I love the addition of dark chocolate.  I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate.

  1. Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old).

    Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old
    Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa,
    and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they
    were hoping for a miracle.

    I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family
    we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the
    euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

    As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be
    good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as
    though Shane might learn something from the experience.

    The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's
    family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for
    the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.
    Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

    The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any
    difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's
    Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are
    shorter than human lives.
    Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''

    Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next
    stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has
    changed the way I try and live.

    He said,''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
    life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?''
    The Six-year-old continued,

    ''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''

    Live simply.

    Love generously.

    Care deeply.

    Speak kindly.

    Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

    When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

    Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

    Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

    Take naps.

    Stretch before rising.

    Run, romp, and play daily.

    Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

    Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

    On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

    On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

    When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

    Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

    Be loyal.

    Never pretend to be something you're not.

    If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

    When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle
    them gently.

    ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
