    Plus nervous eating. A jolly old lady friend turned to me after one of George W. Bush's "Terror Alerts" and said, "Every woman in America is going to gain five poound....."
    I think she said something about eating ice cream.

    As for soft drinks and snack foods. . . .back in the 1950s they were only served on special occasions like parties or picnics...

    •  Agreed. Now we're awash in crappy food (2+ / 0-)

      By the way, after California's GMO labeling Proposition 37 was defeated last fall, I've joined the boycott against companies that funded the No on 37 campaign. Among them, Kraft, Frito-Lay, Mars, Hershey, Kellogg's, General Mills. I've lost weight and am eating good things, like fruit & nuts for snacks instead of processed crap.
