Fake food and weird news abound this week:
Want to fight obesity? Experts say, cook at home, and don’t watch television while you eat.
A Canadian study found that Subway’s chicken is 50% soy. No wonder the texture is weird.
What you always suspected about swimming pools is true. And it’s not just kids who don’t bother to get out of the pool to pee. Ewwwww.
An alligator trots around the golf course with a trophy fish. Only in Florida.
Paris model casting calls get sketchy.
I have a stack of notebooks, and even still wear an actual watch. Why analogue is cool.
Classroom reading therapy dogs. What a great idea.
“How Your Ego Thrives on Fear and Keeps You Panicked.” Wise and timely thoughts at Tiny Buddha.
Closer to home:

My friend Sue Thoms has a new book for kids: My First Communion. It’s adorable, and works as a journal for the event, too. A lovely keepsake.
