Are You Afraid of the Dark?

A father was beginning to groom his young son to be a hunter. As could be expected, the boy was a bit apprehensive to make those hikes through the dark woods in the early morning hours. If you hunt, camp or maybe work in the early morning hours, you know that time of day can be quite eerie at times. Well, the father could tell how his son was feeling, and one day he asked him, “Son, are you afraid of the dark?”

Are Condiments & Sauces Drowning You?

Sauces and condiments – those smooth, creamy and delightful additions that add much more than flavor. It's strange trying to imagine French Fries without ketchup or sushi without soy sauce — some condiments and foods are just meant for one another. But folks often don’t think of how much sugar, fat, sodium, and preservatives are in their sauces and condiments. In a lot of cases, the toppings we use are as bad, if not worse than, the food we are putting it on. While not all condiments are bad, added ingredients can cause problems.
