A bright and cheery GOOD MORNING to you all!!! It’s another week of Ed-vise!
Today’s bit o trivia: Cassius Clay. Not the boxer (Muhammed Ali)! No, no, no. This is the abolitionist from Kentucky! See in 1810, Cassius was born to one of the wealthiest plantation and slave owning families in Kentucky. However, he was no fan of slavery and worked hard to end it. So much so, that as a southern planter, he earned the ire of Sam Brown who tried to kill him in ’48, along with the smile of Mr. Lincoln. Abe appointed Cassius as ambassador to Russia (with love) and Cassius returned the favor by getting Russia to side with the Union. See, Russia isn’t all bad!
Monday Musings Ed-vise today
Two things actually.
First, if you have not heard of Dr. Uma Naidoo, you are missing out in a big way. She talks a lot about nutrition and emotions along with nutrition and brain health.
During this time of quarantine do you feel a bit depressed? Probably. Have you noticed yourself eating more snacks and sugars? Probably. Guess what: that sugar consumption is making you depressed. And that sugar has a deadly spiral in that it makes you depressed so when you eat it, you feel better, which then makes you depressed again! Put down the cookies! Drop it! Step away for the cookie jar… slowly… that’s it… back away!
Second, is a political thing. Understand that the press DOES NOT CHOOSE WHO THE PRESIDENT IS! When the vote is certified by the states, that is when the president is officially chosen. Until that time, the president has NO obligation whatsoever to engage with who the press believes the president to be! That is how it is and that is how it has always been. The press is doing it’s own disservice to the American people by pushing anything contrary. I’m just sayin
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember: STEP AWAY FROM THE COOKIES!
