Poem of the Day ~ Return


Sterling A. Brown

I have gone back in boyish wonderment
To things that I had foolishly put by. . . . 
Have found an alien and unknown content 
In seeing how some bits of cloud-filled sky 
Are framed in bracken pools; through chuckling hours 
Have watched the antic frogs, or curiously
Have numbered all the unnamed, vagrant flowers, 
That fleck the unkempt meadows, lavishly. 

Or where a headlong toppling stream has stayed
Its racing, lulled to quiet by the song 
Bursting from out the thickleaved oaken shade, 
There I have lain while hours sauntered past—
I have found peacefulness somewhere at last, 
Have found a quiet needed for so long. 


Positive Thought of the Day ~ You’ll Be the Comeback Kid

No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.” Og Mandino

Refuse to quit. Choose to learn from losses and failures, before you know it, they’ll be calling you the comeback kid.

Health Tip of the Day ~ Want to Protect Your Eyes?

Add Sweet Potatoes & Carrots to Your Diet

Sweet potatoes provide 1,922 mcg RAE or 215 percent of the DV for vitamin A per 1 cup cooked as well as complex carbs needed for energy and nearly a quarter of your daily needs for fiber. One medium baked sweet potato contains 122 percent of the DV for vitamin A. Because vitamin A is fat-soluble (like vitamins D, E and K), it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough fat in your diet to help your body absorb the nutrient. Pair baked sweet potato with cheese or chili, two fat-rich foods that help your body absorb the vitamin A in the potato.  Carrots are  known for being eye-healthy, and that’s thanks to its beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Per 1-cup cooked carrots, you’ll get 1,329 mcg RAE or 148 percent of the DV — so, yes, carrots are rich in vitamin A. If you prefer them raw  a medium carrot clocks in at 44 percent of the DV.


Note: I slice sweet potatoes and toss them in my air fryer. They’re great as chips with either hummus or guacamole.
