Oh, great. Something else to look forward to.

I’m listening this morning too the Diane Rheems show while having my breakfast of ham, eggs and grits with a pat of butter. I’m also using a slice of whole grain toast that has been lathered over with my nieces homemade blackberry jam, to sop up the egg yolk. It’s a lot of food but I am drinking a glass of milk with only 1 percent fat to kind of balance things.
The subject of Diane’s broadcast is American Obesity. The topic was brought up by the release of a study that predicts 42 percent of Americans will be obese by the year 2030.
That stopped my grits laden fork in mid-air. Just what I needed to hear. Not only am I going to be 90 years old when I get there, chances are I’m going to be fat as well.
