A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello Everyone,

Hope you had a good Earth Day. Donna and I went to a park up in the northern part of Virginia. This park was saved by the valiant efforts of one woman against a very large proposed construction subdivision project. Just goes to show you what one person can do if they put their mind to it. Her name was Elizabeth Hartwell. We were there on the day dedicated to her and her efforts.

We appreciate your readership! Thanks for sharing with your family and friends our newsletters and websites. After all, it's how we grow!

Until next time,
Randal

COMPANIES RUSH TO SELL LOW-CARB PRODUCTS
By IRA DREYFUSS, Associated Press Writer

Take a piece of pita bread, a little tuna, some olives and capers and ╉ presto ╉ it's a low-carb "sort of Mediterranean" pizza. The impact of the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet and other low-carbohydrate eating plans is everywhere at this year's food industry show of new products.

Food companies are trying hard to fit the current low-carb diet craze into their familiar product lines, and Margaret Dennis' easy-to-make pita pizza was just one contribution at the exposition organized by the Food Marketing Institute. Also on display were low-carb candies, cereals and salad dressings.

In her white chef's uniform, Dennis, a culinary consultant to Del Monte, was handing slices to passers-by. On the pita bread, she spread a corporate-brand pizza sauce, added flavored tuna that Del Monte sells in a pouch for the quick-lunch crowd, and threw on olives and capers.

YOUR CHILD'S CHANGING VOICE
KidsHealth.org

Yesterday, your son sounded like he's always sounded - like a boy. But today, you heard that first crack in his voice. He's started puberty and several things about him are changing. Along with obvious changes in physical appearance, his voice will start sounding a whole lot different. For a while, he might have difficulty controlling it and he'll make all sorts of odd noises when trying to speak.

It's the larynx (or voice box) that's causing all that noise. As the body goes through puberty, the larynx grows larger and thicker. It happens in both boys and girls, but the change is more evident in boys. Girls' voices only deepen by a couple of tones and the change is barely noticeable. Boys' voices, however, start to get significantly deeper.

RECOVERY

Recovery helps the body stay hydrated and replaces certain elements that may be used and/or perspired away during higher levels of activity. This drink nourishes the body both during and after activity, as well as when the body is recovering.

It also helps replenish liquid and electrolyte loss and helps balance the acid level in the muscles during exercise to enhance the length and quality of physical exertion.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE PRODUCE STICKERS?

Curious about those inscrutable little stickers slapped on the skin of the apples you pick up at the grocery store? According to Conscious Choice
(October 2003), the numbers on the stickers, called price look up codes (PLUs), can clue you in to the origin of your produce. Organically grown
produce will carry a 5-digit PLU number that begins with a 9, while genetically modified fare can be identified by a 5-digit PLU beginning with
8.

MASCARPONE CHEESECAKE WITH BLACKBERRY SAUCE

From The Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever

This creation was inspired by one I sampled at Stars Cafe in San Francisco a few years back. Mascarpone, a soft Italian fresh cheese, is now available in the cheese section of many supermarkets.

MAKES 8 TO 10 SERVINGS

* 1 cup finely ground amaretti cookies or coconut macaroon cookies (or 1/2  cup graham cracker crumbs mixed with 1/2 cup flaked coconut)
* 3 tablespoons butter, melted
* 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1/2 pound mascarpone cheese
* 3/4 cup granulated sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 (16-ounce) package frozen unsweetened blackberries or raspberries, thawed

* 1/2 cup powdered sugar


1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs and melted butter until well mixed. Press into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the side of an 8-inch springform pan.

LAUGHING LINES
Laughter Is Good Medicine
**********************

Thanks to Larry Clott for today's CleanLaugh.

Two delicate flowers of Southern womanhood (one of whom was from Texas) were conversing on the porch swing of a large white-pillared mansion. The first woman, who was not from Texas, said, "When my first child was born, my husband built this beautiful mansion for me."

The Texas lady commented, "Well, isn't that nice??"

The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me that fine Cadillac automobile you see parked in the drive."

Again, the Texas lady commented, "Well, isn't that nice??"

The first woman boasted, "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet."

Yet again, the Texas lady commented, "Well, isn't that nice??"

The first woman then asked her companion, "What did you husband buy for you when you had your first child?"

The Texas lady replied "My husband sent me to charm school."

"Charm school!", the first woman cried, "Land sakes, child, what on Earth for?"

The Texas lady responded, "So that instead of saying, 'Who gives a care' I learned to say, 'Well, isn't that nice?'"
