    Dear Mona

  • Second Opinion: Sugar   6 years 15 weeks ago

    While I greatly appreciated the two consensus panel recommendations of whole foods over processed foods to reduce sugar consumption, and changing eating habits as a family rather than as an individual (child), I was disappointed that there wasn't more discussion about the elephant in the room. Specifically, while school lunches have made recent nutritional strides, there is a long way to go. One of the ultimate teachable moments in school is the nutrition value of the meal they serve their students.

    If the female panelist's recommendation of the parents "steering the ship" is followed, but that ship gets run aground by a sugar laden (and/or fat laden) school lunch, all is lost. I would like to know what the panelists might be doing to influence the schools in their communities, and also what advice they may have for parents who are dissatisfied with the lunch served by their school district.

    . . . are very good for hibernating frogs burrowed in the mud. The Red H's have more of a definite groove. And a nice, relaxed penguin pace, too. Thanks!

  • Runner's high   6 years 18 weeks ago

    I haven't been working out with music recently, but I used to have an mp3 player on shuffle while I'd use the elliptical machine. Strange things would always be coming up (note: while there may be some good classical music workout options, Webern String Quartets are not on that list!). Consider it:

    One of my favorite songs that would come up is "Venice Queen" by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    It's a long song, with several different sections. The length of the song, and the variety, made the time go by more quickly (I think a lot of short songs make the workout seem longer!). I wonder if that would apply to some longer-form classical works too? Research must be done!

  • Slavery by Another Name   6 years 18 weeks ago

    Wow! I guess it is never too late to learn something new.

    I just watched Slavery by Another Name, and I was surprised and enlightened to learn about this chapter of American History. I came to the US in 1973 from Guyana South America, and began my school years in 6th grade learning 'US History' as it was being taught; about Slavery and later about the Civil Rights Movement. These are the periods of history that the history books addressed, however, it is a show like Slavery by Another name that shed light on a period not talked about but explains so much. Tonight I learned a new phrase - Convict Leasing. This unjust practice brings to light the horrors of oppression that continued for many years as America built this country on the backs of 'so called' freed slaves. No wonder there is still this aura of distrust between the races; the idea that not much is expected from Black people, that we are bad behaved, criminal types and that we really are not capable of doing more than manual labor. Seeing this show tonight explained a great deal to me, as to why Blacks remain in dire situations they live in and how the impact will continue to be felt for generations to come. It is evident even in the highest position in this nation, and the free world, POTUS, that our President continues to be judged not on his abilities and qualifications, but with the underlying doubt that he is just not capable of doing the job.

    Thank you for having the courage and decency for showing and sharing real stories of America. It is my hope that lessons will be learned from errors of the past. AMerica will survive and thrive when all people are free to soar and achieve what they are entitled. This wasa graeat documentary!

    Thank you for a magnificent hour! I stopped and parked to enjoy it on my journey from church.

  • Time Warner Cable Blocking OTA Digital Channels   6 years 18 weeks ago

    While I sympathize with the budget dilemma, two facts stand out: 1. The person complaining has a HDTV. They are not inexpensive. 2. With the install cost for cable costing something like 1500+ per home, it will be 20 years before the cable company can make that up.

  • OnStage "The Prickers & Po' Boys Brass Band" on WXXI-TV   6 years 18 weeks ago

    The Prickers performance was my introduction to WXXI On Stage. Loved it, and will definitely look for more local programming like this!!! The Prickers offer a unique blend of blue grass talent, and their Naples flavor comes through loud and strong. Loved seeing so many Neopolitans enjoying the show live!! Thanks, WXXI!!!

  • American Masters "The Doors:When You’re Strange"   6 years 18 weeks ago
