In Books: The movie that many of us now know as THE Christmas movie: A Christmas Story (1983), was actually based on a book. In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, was published in 1966! Did you know this? You can read more about this via Off the Shelf. In the meantime, yet another book was added to my TBR. I have come to accept I will never, ever, read all the books on my To Be Read list!
In Health: Everyone knows drinking soda is unhealthy. But did you know drinking soda daily makes you age faster? Soda drinkers have shorter telomeres than non-soda drinkers (this is related to our DNA). I gave up soda (kicking and screaming) about 6 years ago, I guess sometimes my corn allergy is looking out for me. Okay, not really, but I’m glad I don’t have to worry about this anymore.
And in General News, Marriott is evil. That is all.
