I just saw the most outstanding commercial and I will not spoil it for everyone else so I will just point the the web site and say go read. The actual commercial is not there but the organization is there and can use some help. All I can say to pique everyone's interest is that I could not live without the one I love. If you can find the commercial please post it here so every one can see it. It is terrific!!!

"Let it ring"

Fred, is this what you wanted? :-)


In a USDA Human Nutrition Research Center laboratory, neuroscientists discovered that feeding blueberries to laboratory rats slowed age-related loss in their mental capacity, a finding that has important implications for humans.

Blueberry Crisp

4 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and completely dried
1-1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (set aside the extra tablespoon)
1-1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick (1/4 pound) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Preheat oven to 350◦ F. Spread the blueberries in an 8x8x2” square baking dish. Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of flour over the berries. Thoroughly blend the remaining flour, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut in the butter to make coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture over berries. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until berry juice starts to bubble and the topping is light to medium brown. Best served slightly warm, or at room temperature if you don’t melt the vanilla ice cream on top. Warning – if you reheat this, the topping gets soggy; however, it is fine eaten cold from the pan the next day. I don't have any idea how those last two informational gems were discovered, just that they are true.

Enjoy your antioxidants. I think you will have more fun than the lab rats if you try this.
