When I was a kid, I wasn't exactly a veggie lover. My repertoire consisted of (canned) corn, carrots and, occasionally, zucchini. Anything else was met with stubborn resistance. If the dog was nearby, I'd sneak her whatever I refused to eat—and she got a virtual rainbow! The more my parents begged me to eat my peas or lima beans ("There are so many reasons you should eat your vegetables," they insisted), the more stubborn I became.

Confession: I think I have turned into one of those slow walkers. Perhaps it's because last week I was away visiting the West Coast and was in unfamiliar—or less familiar—territory that I began to feel paranoid about falling and moved around a bit slower than my usual robust pace. OK, I'm not really a s-l-o-w walker. But I am a bit more cautious than when I was younger.
