Time is right now
Posted on 09/1/2008
The other day a friend of mine was taking a train trip through the middle of some relatively undeveloped country. Staring out the window, he couldn’t help but notice that for long stretches of time, it was impossible to differentiate the scenery of “right now” from the way it looked one hundred years ago. Except for the train, it seemed to him like past, present, and future were all the same.
Time is the way we keep track of what’s happening. Yet the older I get, the more I realize that time is just a sequence of one “right now” after another.
Of course, because I’m concerned with healthy eating and weight loss, I can’t help but think that the “right now” we share at this moment has the advantage of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating—a meal plan that makes it possible for many, many different kinds of people to lose weight and eat healthy the “right way.” Really, there’s nothing else like our plan. We’ve spent twenty-three years creating and updating the menu. Nutritional science has come a long way in that time—and we’re with them. Home cooking, on the other hand, has been with us for centuries—and we’re there too.

A couple from Colorado (both blind since birth) heard the commercial I do with Ron Santo. They’re big fans of the former Cub third-sacker and current radio commentator.
They called my daughter Paula and discussed how “blind-friendly” our website is. After a long discussion about the plan, they ordered our meals. Both of them were very excited about our Braille menus.

Can you do me a favor please? Our Braille menus are so helpful to the blind who want to eat healthy. The fact that we do the shopping, planning, and preparation is especially important to these customers.
Though we’ve tried many ways to spread the word about our Braille menus, the media doesn’t seem to be very interested. Too bad! We want to help as many people as we can.
If you know a blind person who might benefit from Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, would you be kind enough to mention to them that our website is blind-friendly, and that we have Braille menus for their convenience? If you can help us help them, I’ll be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

I read somewhere that people should avoid diets that have too many rules about “good” and “bad” foods. Amen to that!

While I was shopping for a shirt for Kelly, a woman came up to me in the store and volunteered that her husband was off his diabetic medications because of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating. Goodness. How I like to hear reports like that! What’s it all about? Results!

I’m a little embarrassed to include this item in my blog, but I’m not doing it for me. Rather, I want to thank our Bettendorf, Iowa distributor, Jennifer Salhi, who took the trouble to write a short note after she returned home from our distributor meeting last week.
Jennifer wrote: “Hello everyone. When Seattle Sutton speaks—everyone listens! Right! Well, Seattle is like a mother to all of us, making sure we eat right and do the right thing.”
So nice, Jennifer. Not everyone listens when I speak, but I think they should when you do.
