It's going to be really really nice but it's another chilly night tonight now. Remember is gonna be so hot this summer. That even if you hate this weather right now. And it's march and your ready for warmer weather. Let's just enjoy it while it's here because it's gonna get hot this summer and there's going to be a time this summer when you're gonna think back and you're gonna go. I wish we had that cold weather again and so again while it's here. Let's embrace it goes so far it's it's been very very well with the exception -- draw a day overall. We've yet to even approach to really warm weather yet but it's it's coming. We should all be proud of our culture. Whoever we are but -- -- hearing to cultural things is not healthy. Then his culture really that important the state of Mississippi has been declared the most obese state in America according to a new poll and many say. That the reason is because of the cultural cuisine. The fried food and all the stuff that it is so much a part of this southern a traditional cuisine. But also it's the laid back lifestyle. Now Louisiana was number four on the list and no state in this entire part of the country made. The list of the top ten. Mo at least obese states. So nobody in this area know stay in this area is among the least obese states. And you know we do have great food but you don't have to eat all the time. Also in the early nineties there was a debate in San Antonio over Mexican food being served in public schools because the food was so fattening it didn't beat new nutritional requirements and guidelines. As a there was a call to remove some of the Mexican food from schools and many argued wait a minute. That's our culture and is the cultural part of many of the students who were in school in San Antonio and still are so even if that foods. Unhealthy dated when it removed because it was part of the culture. I think there comes a time when may be culture is an important as being healthy. And you can always have something to be part of your culture but you don't have to eat it as much. And you could never blamed the the food at the casino in New Orleans. Four. Do not looking the way you want to look because well you'd be in you can moderates which you consumed.
