A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all are doing well! More and more people are telling us about how they are going "no carb" in their diet regimens. Coincidentally, I have heard of some companies acutally going under due to the lack of carbohydrate products being purchased.

In the "Health In The News" section we feature Krispy Kreme's story of its difficulties due to lack of sales. I never thought this would actually happen. It just goes to show you that we as a consumer still have a say by being selective about our purchases.

Thank for sharing our ezines and websites with your family and friends, after all that is how we grow!


Until next time,

Randal

HIGH-FLYING DOUGHNUT MAKER KRISPY KREME HIT BY LOW-CARB CRAZE

The low-carb diet craze could mean some belt-tightening at the onetime high-flying doughnut company, Krispy Kreme.

For the first time since becoming a public company in 2000, Krispy Kreme is warning of lower profits for the upcoming fiscal year -- about 10 percent below prior forecasts.

"For several months, there has been increasing consumer interest in low-carbohydrate diets, which has adversely impacted several flour-based food categories, including bread, cereal and pasta," said Scott Livengood, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

PARENT'S TIP - PICKY EATER
KidsHealth.org

Q. Help! My 5-year-old daughter only wants to eat noodles with butter, chicken noodle soup, and pancakes! What should I do? - Arlene

A. It can be frustrating when your child wants to eat the same thing every day - but it's not uncommon. Some children are picky by nature, but there are things you can do to encourage your child to try at least a few bites of nutritious food at each meal. Look for recipes that contain ingredients your daughter likes, and include her in the preparation. Being part of the grocery shopping, cooking, and serving may help keep her interested.

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

Every Friday after work, a mathematician goes down to the Ice Cream Parlor, sits in the second-to-last seat, turns to the last seat, which is empty, and asks a girl, who isn't there, if he can buy her an ice cream cone.

The owner, who is used to the weird, local university types, always shrugs but keeps quiet. But when Valentine's Day arrives, and the mathematician makes a particularly heart wrenching plea into empty space, curiosity gets the better of him, and he says, "I apologize for my stupid questions, but surely you know there is NEVER a woman sitting in that last stool, man. Why do you persist in asking out empty space?"

The mathematician replies, "Well, according to quantum physics, empty space is never truly empty. Virtual particles come into existence and vanish all the time. You never know when the proper wave function will collapse and a girl might suddenly appear there."

The owner raises his eyebrows. "Really? Interesting. But couldn't you just ask one of the girls who comes here every Friday if you could buy HER a cone? Never know... she might say yes."

The mathematician laughs. "Yeah, right. How likely is THAT to happen?"
