SNAP is one of the most effective and efficient federal programs, as well as one of the most responsive, providing additional assistance to needy families during economic downturns. It’s also one of the most-needed: 46 million Americans rely on SNAP benefits to buy food each month, according to the USDA. Two-thirds of these benefits go to households with children.
1 in 7 kids in the United States face hunger, and 20 million of those children are in families who rely on the food they get from SNAP.

Food Bank of the Rockies:
Helping People Thrive
Food is the foundation for a happy, healthy life.
Hunger can be found everywhere – often where you least expect it. The homeless population represents only about 10% of our food recipients. The rest? Everyday people like low-wage workers, children, seniors on fixed incomes and individuals with health issues.
We’re working to feed them all.
Project Angel Heart:
Project Angel Heart prepares and delivers meals for people living with life-threatening illnesses. Each week, our professional chefs and registered dietitian prepare thousands of delicious meals, from scratch, and tailor them to meet the medical and dietary needs of those who are ill. Neighbors living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney/heart/lung disease, and other illnesses receive our meals, delivered by loving volunteers, free of charge.

Good stuff. I was walking by a couple of weeks ago and stopped in. The lady who worked there told me they just opened. Apparently they have a few locations in the Front Range. Check the link for one near you. Recommended.
Boylan’s Birch Beer (regular, non creamy red version), also tastes like root beer.
Pretty good root beer though.
DUBNER: Right now, we’re talking in the year 2017. A lot of people now are convinced that the U.S. government and many others erred terribly in declaring fat to be the cause of obesity. Many people now believe, as you argue, that sugar is a much bigger villain. How do we know you’re not the guy that’s wrong this time, that you’re not just another — perhaps well-intentioned — big-brained do-gooder who is making a massive mistake?
LUSTIG: An awfully good question. This is known as the pessimistic meta-induction theory. What it says is, “Everything we knew 10 years ago is already wrong, and everything we know today will be wrong 10 years from now. Why should we do anything differently when we know that whatever it is that we believe today will end up being wrong?” If you play that game, then you might as well never do any research, never do anything at all, and live with the current dogma.

Sweet. Old school pink bubble gum, sort of. Vernor’s and Irn Bru are the closest things I can think of. Vernor’s is a bit more subtle.

Like root beer going down, with a bitter after taste. Roughly like someone put an expresso in your root beer.
Opened last fall, I believe.
