When I got my last haircut, the hair stylist and I talked about our favorite candy. It turned out to be one of the few things we have in common.
For both of us Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are our guilty pleasure. The combination of chocolate and peanuts is irresistible.
Many people share our preference. The Snickers bar is the biggest selling candy bar, and Hershey’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is number two, according to AskMen.com.
I almost completely stopped eating any candy when I took my diabetes seriously- too much sugar.
That’s why I was so excited to read in an article in diabetes magazine a few month’s ago that there is now a sugar-free version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But I looked in vain for it.
Yesterday I finally found my favorite candy in my local drugstore. The first thing I noticed is that the label says it is low glycemic and has 5 grams of fiber.
The second thing I noticed was that somehow one of the cups was in my mouth. It tasted great – every bit as goo...
I am 35,000 feet in the air, headed back from Kansas, where yesterday I delivered two talks and participated on a panel at the DBSA Kansas State Conference. The talks went over very well, but as usual I was at my best interacting with my audience during Q and A time.On two separate occasions, the issue of creativity came up. This may have been prompted by various references in my talk to being “peanut butter people” in a world governed by tofu.Any discussion on creativity, of course, involves the obligatory list of stellar achievers with mental illness: Van Gogh, Newton, Michelangelo, Churchill, Lincoln, the ubiquitous and highly prolific Anonymous, and on and on and on.And, of course, the person who discovered fire. No question about it, I said. You had to be crazy to run outside into a burning forest and bring back a flaming piece of tree to your cave.Think about it, I said, summing up the accomplishments of those with our diagnosis. We give humanity the gift of civiliza...
As I travel around the country speaking about caregiving and Alzheimer’s, I often hear the most heartwarming stories about late-in-life love. Visiting an Adult Day Care Center last year, I observed a group of seniors (with mild dementia) getting ready for their afternoon walk. A lovely lady with the rosiest cheeks and name to match, Rose (80-ish), gushed as she pointed out her new boyfriend to me, whispering about their budding romance and completely giddy about how wonderful he was.Still handsome at 87, Alfred grinned ear-to-ear, tipped his cowboy hat and carefully helped with her coat, all the while gazing lovingly into her aged eyes. I took the time to walk with them, just to be able to savor their joy. It was plain as day that they were as smitten as any teenagers in the first blush of love.I instantly flashed back to the lovebirds of my high school, Tom and Carol, who shared their locker below mine and who were so in love, always leaning against the lockers gazing into each othe...
