Well I wrapped all the Christmas presents that I have last night and they are now ready to go under the Christmas Tree and I Mozart doesn't mess with them. I still have a few items that I need to get and then I my shopping will be done. Well the high school football playoffs resume today with a pair Central Region teams in action. Dinwiddie will be at home against Phoebus while Hermitage will travel down to Virginia Beach to face Bayside. In the FCS playoffs William & Mary will be at home facing Georgia Southern. The Colonial Heights boys basketball team lost last night to Waslingham Academy 75-54 they will face ARGS tonight, the CH girls team will face Trinity tonight. They are calling for some light snow showers tonight here in the Heights but there isn't suppose to any accumulation, all I know is it is cold enough to snow thats for sure. The VCU Rams will play there first CAA game of the year at home today against William & Mary and I am sure Lee will be there. Also yesterday on the blog we had a visitor from Hong Kong. Try to stay warm, MICKEY

Lean Beef
Lean beef is one of the best-absorbed sources of iron there is. (Too-little iron can cause anemia.) Adding as little as 1 ounce of beef per day can make a big difference in the body’s ability to absorb iron from other sources, says Mary J. Kretsch, PhD, a researcher at the USDA-ARS Western Human Nutrition Research Center in Davis, CA. Beef also packs plenty of zinc (even minor deficiencies may impair memory) and B vitamins, which help your body turn food into energy.

If you can, splurge on grass-fed. Compared with grain-fed beef, it has twice the concentration of vitamin E, a powerful brain-boosting antioxidant. It’s also high in omega-3 fatty acids. Because this type of beef tends to be lower in overall fat, it can be tough—so marinate it, and use a meat thermometer to avoid overcooking.

The customer doesn't expect everything will go right all the time; the big test is what you do when things go wrong. Sir Colin Marshall
