**Cherries: Do you know that America is the biggest producer of the tart or sour cherries. Sweet cherries or tart cherries are both loaded with nutrition. Tart cherries are a cross of sweet cherries and wild cherries. They have polyphenols and anti-inflammatory properties, good for the heart, help you sleep better, fight diabetes, and help muscles after exercise. They have a compound anthocyanins that not only gives them the red color but abundant health benefits. They reduce oxidative stress, blood pressure, and arthritis. They are available fresh (mostly in the northeast), frozen, dried and canned in juice. Use them in baking, cereal, oatmeal, salads, granola, dessert topping or just eat them fresh.
**We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full. – Marcel Proust, French author (1871-1922)

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely. Thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
