“When the waters rise, so do our better angels.”*

“Get busy helping someone else and see — over time — the things you might have in common, instead of only the things that might divide you.”

“Remember what can happen when we love our neighbors as ourselves. There are storms that bring us together and storms that divide us. We have a chance now to choose. Harvey already has reminded us what we’re capable of, when we come together.”

Angelic Meowie from CATNIPblog

“The recovery ahead will be long. Our neighbors need to know they can count on us. The families affected will need our help and our attention as the work of rebuilding unfolds. If we hold our focus on the important matters at hand, we can use the power of the people to create that world we all know exists — if we will simply give it life.”  

*Jimmy Carter

Everything in life ministers to our development. Our lesson is to study and learn… Tests are either stumbling blocks or stepping-stones, just as we make them.

Ice cream for Breakfast Makes You Smarter – for your eyes ONLY (CATNIPblog subscribers do NOT read)

Growing up one of my favorite breakfasts was cream of wheat  (we called it Farina) with a scoop or two . . .  or three . . . of vanilla ice-cream.  I’m already drooling at the memory: The cold ice cream melting on the hot cereal.   A delicious bite of  melted ice cream,  a bit of solid ice-cream and cereal.  
When all the ice cream melted I would get another scoop.  Loved the taste, texture, hot & cold, sweet and bland.  It was so decadent to eat ice cream for breakfast.

On CATNIPblog Peggy and I focus on brain & body health.  We’ve posted about brain science & sugar and the neurochemistry of eating protein at every meal.   I am withholding this breakfast-breaking research from CATNIPblog subscribers so Peggy doesn’t get irate comments.  

BUT those of you who care more about being “CURIOUS” than CATNIP . . .  you get the first scoop.
