3 Things I Learned This Week #84 (football, nutrition, cats)


High School Football

In last Sunday's Cleveland PLAIN DEALER on the cover of a section called Parade, there was a picture of Natalie Randolph, one of the nation's only female football coaches. She coaches a boys' football team at Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C. She is 30 years old. I give her a lot of credit and wish her and her team well. She really cares about the students--that's why she was hired. (She looks great too!)

Cinnamon

At examiner.com I learned that Cinnamon is an "antioxidant superpower with huge health benefits such as a great source manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.

Fat Cats

From playing my free kibble trivia game, I learned that obese cats are at higher risk for diabetes, arthritis and heart and lung disease. Non-obese cats live 15% longer! I'm going to have to put out less food--Spunky is too chunky!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will definitely be following you now. I will be taking my cat to the vet today so we'll see if he comes up as obese. I hope not!
