Most of you know that the VL and her MAN recently entered a 5K race while enjoying their stay on Tybee Island, GA. This was the second year participating – and again, it was so fun….rewarding…and well, exhausting!!!
We felt GREAT afterward….and PROUD! And, yes……glad it was over! But – what was the BEST part of our participation you ask – well, hopefully are at least wondering…….it was seeing children participating.
And there were SO many of them…..and not just in the typical “kids run” – …..there were many children who participated in the 5K, 10K and even the 1/2 marathon..
Childhood obesity scares me…..and it should scare each of you reading this. One in three children in this country is OBESE. If we don’t solve this problem……1/3 of all kids born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lives. Many others will face chronic obesity related health problems – heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, asthma.
And – on top of all that is the emotional pain of “bullying.” Being a kid is tough – but being an overweight kid is REALLY tough. The psychological stress of social stigmatization can cause low self-esteem which, in turn, can hinder academic and social functioning, and persist into adulthood. While research is still being conducted, there have been some studies showing that obese children are not learning as well as those who are not obese. Further, physical fitness has been shown to be associated with higher achievement.
How did we get to this point? Well, let me count the ways……fast food, video games, busy BUSY parents, cell phones, snacking instead of family meals, internet, movies, sugar sweetened everything – the average American consumes 15 more pounds of sugar than in 1970…….larger portions (Super-Size)……I could go on and on and I am sure you could as well.
Now – what are “we” going to do about it? Yes – WE – everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, grandparents, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. I challenge each of you to be part of the answer to childhood obesity.
How far would your drive for a GREAT breakfast? How about 670 miles????? And…..every year for the last five years! And almost every morning – you can find – “me” – the VL’s MAN and “her” the VL – walking………
To the “WORLD FAMOUS” Breakfast Club…..even Al Roker did a feature on this unique local place!
Opens at 7 am – closes at 1 pm…..
How good is it????
People stand in line just to get a seat! And….what is the best seat in the house you ask? The COUNTER – where you can see ALL the action!
It is kind of like the breakfast version of “Cheers!” where “everybody knows your name!”
But……what is truly the attraction of the BC (Breakfast Club)?
Well, the food is amazing – grits like you have never experienced, omelets that go way beyond eggs…. sausage, buns, gravy – all homemade, handmade, right there, all the time….the obvious attention to detail….. the meal is real…..and the coffee is hot…….
and….the staff are certainly entertaining…..
but it is the EXPERIENCE that makes the BC unique!
Ummmmmmm, what does that mean exactly? It means that you walk away and go WOW – that place was FUN…..INTERESTING….MEMORABLE……and I want to go back…..
Even if it means driving 670 miles!

The Vintage Lady said to her “Man,”…… write a blog…..so I did.
But….then I realized, I don’t really know what a “blog” is…..
Well, the doctoral ring on my finger says I am an educated man, but…a blog…
I know what a log is but a blog?????…
The language they use these days…for example, when I ordered t-shirts for the shop, the lady asked if I wanted military green, burnt orange or navy…..
In our one room school, we only had colors the same as our crayons – green, orange, blue, brown……
And…..all this “texting” language – it is just overwhelming! So I had to come up with my own:
Anyway, my task for now is to discover what a blog is before The Vintage Lady demotes me from co-owner to second employee.
Well? Are you going to do it????? You know……well, are you going to????
Cause I did it last year……and I hear even MORE people are going to do it this year!
It’s ALL the rage you know! and…….it is easy! click here to find out what IT is!
I knew there might be some pain….and a lot of anxiety……heck, there might even be bruises!
But…..it was time……tighten things up……smooth things out…….firm up the look!
So……..I took the big step…….. But wait, there’s more!
