Prayer of the unknown confederate soldier - health, wisdom, poems

I asked for strength that I might achieve; I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things; I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy; I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men; I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

healthy diet and poverty

Unplugged from food corporations I've heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best decisions about what to eat. Understandably, when

eating healthy on a budget

Recent shopping trips have made two facts very plain:  1. Many customers, much younger than I, look extremely physically unfit/ or unwell.  2. Many customers look and sound bewildered when deciding what to buy  They would be less vulnerable to the mischief of food corporations' TV advertising and packaging if they had a list. Even better if it is a " food for wellbeing on a budget"

Individual freedom versus corporations

I asked my pal in Illinois why the area he lives is so sparsely populated and yet Chicago (the nearest very big city) is bursting at the seams: "They move to the city for jobs, but ... Even the city jobs are few. America isn't what the rest of the world envisions it to be any more. I just read an article recently which said Americans need to realize that the 'golden' age of America is over.
