  1. Enjoyable articles, thank you Pam! I was interested in someone else’s perspective on how they perceive intelligence. If we aren’t already doing these things, they are very easy to implement. That article on sweeteners, we talked about that often when I worked in the hospital and it’s so important. One thing this article mentioned that I hadn’t thought of was the pure maple syrup. It sounds very sweet, but I’m going to try it for a different flavor!

    1. A few of my family favorites…like baked beans…include maple syrup…so good. Happy Sunday, Karen!

  2. You always find good information for us to mull over. The article on the 12 signs of intelligence was very interesting and actually common sense. Some of the tips even overlap into manners Before I was compelled by my doctor to curtail my sugar intake, I had used a small amount of brown sugar in tea. Surprisingly good. IMHO artificial sweeteners should be banned altogether. Sharing a little story about my granddaughter’s school Roach Middle School in McKinney…the teachers organized a parade of cars and drove through neighborhoods where students live, honking their horns and waving. She will be a freshman this fall.

    1. Those little parades are so cute and fun for the students right now when they really cannot gather with friends and teachers. I love it. The university I work for is going to host one as well for the graduates! Thanks Donna!

      1. Speedway High School graduates got to drive a lap on the Indianapolis 500 track, which I thought was very cool.

  3. I enjoyed the article on the 12 things that make people think you are intelligent. I can say that I agree with most of them. The first time we walked into our accountant’s home office, my husband & I were impressed with how neat it was. Being a person that thrives on neatness & order, his office told me that our business was important to him, & we had his full attention.

  4. If #6, SHOES, on the 12 things that make people think you are intelligent is true, then I’m on my way to genius! I LOVE shoes and enjoy wearing the most appropriate, stylish, color-coordinated and comfortable shoes for any occasion. My mother was, and my sisters are the same. I have one daughter who loves shoes and the other…well, she’s a work in progress, but I do have 3 out of my 5 granddaughters on the way to genius as well.
