Walkin'

The earliest Olympics, held around 800 B.C., had one event, a foot race in the nude of about 200 yards.
Starting about 500 B.C., other trials began appearing: running while weighed down by armor, boxing, wrestling, long jump, javelin and discus throw, etc. So it went for nearly 12 centuries when the Roman emperor Theodosius I, a Christian, abolished the games in 393 A.D. because of their pagan influences.

Food For Thought

Several weeks ago, I wrote a column about cooking for one, and some ways to prevent food waste when forced to buy groceries in family-size packages. Several people responded to my comments, and said they appreciated the suggestions. A couple said they still miss the cooking column I used to write. So, maybe it’s not too soon to write about food again.
