A Good Start for a Good Day

I have to admit, I'm not good about having a sit-down breakfast, at least on weekdays. Typically, I'm running out the door, getting the kids to the school bus and then making my way to work. I do eat breakfast, but it's generally at my desk -- a bowl of oatmeal.

Even as a child, you were more likely to find me seated with a TV tray in the living room eating a bowl of sugary cereal in front of "The Adventures of Superman" or "Bugs Bunny" than sitting down with my family to eggs and bacon.  But I always envied the scenes of families eating breakfast together, such as I'd seen on shows like "Leave it Beaver".

I don't know if that world ever existed.  Even in my day, we had cartoon blobs preaching to us about eating a good breakfast.

And as far back as 1957, the folks at Western Electric, purveyors of telephones, published this booklet on how to have "A Good Start for a Good Day".  Go grab a some breakfast and enjoy.

Let's Eat Outdoors

I know it's not officially over until September 22nd and we still have Labor Day in there, but school starts here next week so let's just call it: Summer is all but over.  But before it ends, let's get out one last time and eat amongst nature...with a big pot of beans and a can of Spam.
