While you may not believe the food pyramid is pseudoscience, the prevalence of people staying healthy by ditching eggs, milk and meat may cause you to rethink your diet.

Dory and Hank #FindingDory

Looking for Dory? Find her on the Big Screen Now!

I remember sitting in a theater with my nephew for his first movie ever on the big screen.  That movie was Finding Nemo and it quickly became one of my favorite all time animated films.   He was my first and only nephew at that time.  I remember being so amused as I watched him eat popcorn and candy, taken in thoroughly by the magic of Disney.
