    McDonald's fries and the Latte's reel me in. I get their skimpy salads. Had not thought to add a burger for extra protein ~ I toss bun if they won't "hold" it - diabetes carb counting. To the pico/guac on my garden salad! Thanks.

    Their salads now have five types of greens (Including spinach and kale!) and I have been adding all the sandwich "guts" (no bun) to the top of the salad. Try the maple bacon Dijon on the salad with extra Dijon for the dressing...YUMMY!!!

    Sam, Thank you for this wonderful post about my grandfather, Bob. It truly made me happy. Everything you said about him and his personality are spot on! He retired from teaching when I was very young, but he was always an English teacher for me! I was given the gift of being great at English and Literature (which probably came from him), but he still helped me out with my papers and resumés throughout college. We always had so much to talk about when it came to papers, books, poems, etc. Luckily, he was able to see one of his grandchildren graduate from college before he passed away (me). We were very close, and I miss him so much. Not having him anymore is unimaginably difficultfor me. However, I'm very happy to hear that he had such a huge impact on you. It means a lot to me. Thank you for writing this article. It has made me even more proud of my grandfather than I already was! - Caitlin Brosnahan

    Caitlin, Your grandfather was one of a kind! I hope this brings your family some comfort and I thank you all so much for sharing him with us. He truly encouraged every single student to be MORE than they were, and there is NO greater gift an educator can give.

    Keep it going! We have lots more to share but saying NO more often allows us to say YES to the things we really want to, right? It's a process and I'm 47 and still figuring it all out. Thanks for your feedback!

    Jay, YES!! Fashion is theatrical and many people grow up and forget how empowering those moments were as kids! I would LOVE to have you contribute an article on men's style sometime! Sadly, I think many guys are missing the mark.
