Sue spoke to us today about health and happiness.  Her remarks were mostly drawn from the teachings of DR. A Weil and DR G Aukerman.  Here are a few highlights:  Insufficient contact with nature predisposes us to depression.  Expose yourself to art and beauty.  Lend a helping hand – volunteering or doing service for others will make you happier over time.  Learn to be compassionate and empathetic.  Practice forgiveness.

Dr Aukerman has some pretty strong feelings about food and nutrition.  He believes that food should be picked ripe instead of picked green.  This can manifest itself through the argument that canned green beans can be fresher and more nutritious than the the food in the produce isle.

 A lively discussion followed.
