The Fresh Air Fund

Remember when it was summer and time for summer camp?  Well the Fresh Air Fund worked hard at the beginning of summer this year to raise enough money so that 8,000 children could go to camp in the New York area.  Here are some highlights.

It looks like the had a lot of fun.  As you can see in the video they did a lot of tie dye which is actually a fun activity.  We did that when I went to band camp in 1981 so I guess it’s something that never goes out of style.

What I’m most happy about is that they got to go swimming.  Well, for them anyway.  Me, I had to suffer.  Why can’t they have adult camps?  Hehe I kid.  No but seriously, where are the adult camps?

Hey if you want to follow the Fresh Air Fund check them out on Facebook and Twitter and you can also visit their website www.freshair.org.  Perhaps next year will be the year that you help an underprivileged child go to summer camp.

Malt-O-Meal Hot Cereal

I can remember when I was about 4 or 5 years old and my mother used to make me Malt-O-Meal for breakfast.  That was the best hot cereal ever.  Yes I like Oatmeal but this is better.  I don’t care too much for cream of wheat though.

I remember that my mom always bought the Chocolate Malt-O-Meal and if she bought the original, I would put some chocolate syrup in it to make it chocolaty hehe.

Did you know that Malt-O-Meal hot cereal is nutritious?  I knew it was good for you but I didn’t know to what extend until I read this:

Link is gone, sorry.  But take my word for it lol.  Visit the website and do some digging (link below)

Wow, I’m going to buy this more often and eat it before my bike rides instead of regular cold cereal.  Although this means I’m either going to get a late start or I will have to get up earlier.  Then again you can nuke it lol.

I don’t know why but the stores in California, or at least in Bakersfield, don’t sell the chocolate flavored Malt-O-Meal anymore.  When I was 4 or 5 as I mentioned before we lived here in Bakersfield and that’s where my mom bought it so I’m not sure why they don’t sell it here now.  They do mention that flavor on their website.  I want CHOCOLATE Malt-O-Meal!  Adding chocolate syrup adds more calories to it lol.  Oh well, I guess Maple and Brown Sugar will have to do.
