"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by Dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become."

Drink your milk ....

I saw a laughable advert from the makers of Coco Pops - their new idea to encourage kids to drink milk is their "Coco Pops straws" - highly sugary chocolate straws that seem to be too big to fit into your cereal bowl, but that will encourage kids to slurp their milk through them. OOOH FANTASTIC - get your kids to drink milk but first, saturate it with sugar! It's bad enough that Coco Pops are about 50% sugar and don't fill you up for longer than an hour, but now they will be eating LESS because those silly straws don't even make up a good bowl of breakfast!

Any parent that falls for this crap should be shot. If you want to encourage your kids to drink milk, then make them cool fruit smoothies - much better for them, no need to add sugar, totally healthy, and you can't even taste the milk thanks to the fruity goodness.
