    A Brief History of Peanut Butter The bizarre sanitarium staple that became a spreadable obsession Veteran food critic Florence Fabricant has called peanut butter “the pâté of childhood" North Americans weren't the first to grind peanuts—the Inca beat us to it by a few hundred years—but peanut butter reappeared in the modern world because of an American, the doctor, nutritionist and cereal pioneer John Harvey Kellogg, who filed a patent for a proto-peanut butter in 1895. Kellogg’s “food compound” involved boiling nuts and grinding them into an easily digestible paste for patients at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, a spa for...

    `Linus and Lucy’ and other music he created for the Charlie Brown TV Specials reverberate forever in the American heart It’s great music to hear anytime, but especially this time of year. It’s the late jazz composer Vince Guaraldi’s joyful music for the Charlie Brown TV specials. His song, “Linus and Lucy” has become the main theme of all the Charlie Brown specials, though it was first used in the Charlie Brown Christmas special. Nobody had ever used a soundtrack of hip piano jazz for an animated feature before this. Composers such as the great Carl Stalling did compose tremendously...
  • For the first time since 1965, the Peanuts holiday specials are not scheduled to air on broadcast TV

    The first time It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown aired on television, it preempted My Three Sons. As in, an original episode of My Three Sons. The date was October 27, 1966, and Douglas family fans had just seen Yvonne Craig play a meter maid the previous week. Instead, CBS viewers got the Peanuts crew. The idea of a Peanuts holiday special, and a Peanuts cartoon in general, was still relatively novel. Great Pumpkin was just the third animated special from the mind of Charles Schulz. A Charlie Brown Christmas has premiered one year earlier. The Christmas special was so...
  • Rancid Food (not pleasant reading)

    In the middle of the night past I felt a burning sensation traveling up my esophagus. This was followed by fits of coughing and sweats. I had eaten something that had gone rancid, probably either peanut butter, canned peanuts or cooking oil. Previous nights recently I had the same problem, which I believe came from cookies. My attack last night lasted about two hours instead of a more typical thirty minutes. I tried to deal with it by spitting out whatever I could, which was mainly mucus. In the past, things like spaghetti sauce, tortilla and potato chips have given...

    This week A Charlie Brown Christmas aired on national prime time television for the 50th time. In a world where the latest greatest technology is outdated in a matter of months, and social media trends come and go in a matter of days, 50 years of anything becomes quite meaningful. SnipSince I was kind of a bookworm and already had a blue blanket, I was chosen to play the part of Linus. As Linus, I memorized Luke 2:8-14, and that Scripture has been hidden in my heart ever since. But while working so diligently to learn those lines, there is...

The special was a collaboration between Schulz, producer Lee Mendelson, and director Bill Melendez, with a music score by Vince Guaraldi. The reviews were outstanding....

    SUMMERDALE, Ala. (WALA) - The fall harvest in summer-like heat continues in Baldwin County. Having tackled his peanuts in Robertsdale last week, farmer Tim Mullek is now focusing his efforts on cotton. It's been growing for 5 months and is ready for picking. "We haven't had a rain in 5 weeks. So all these bolls -- almost every boll -- has opened with no rain in it," explained Mullek. The conditions may be bone dry, but there's no shortage of the white fluffy stuff. "When you pick cotton… the lint needs to be dry and the seeds need to crack....

    Did your grandparents have food allergies? Mine sure didn’t. A stark comparison to the growing epidemic of food allergies, worsening with every generation. So why didn’t your grandparents have food allergies? It’s really quite simple… 1) THEY ATE SEASONAL REAL FOOD. Food came from farms and small markets in the early 1900’s, and because food preservatives were not widely used yet, food was fresh. Because of the lack of processed food, their diets were nutrient dense, allowing them to get the nutrition they needed from their food. For babies, breast milk was valued and it was always in season. 2)...

    The Hartford Yard Goats are rewriting the lyrics to “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” after announcing earlier this month its Dunkin’ Donuts Park will be peanut-free. The Yard Goats, Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, are believed to be the first team to ban peanuts for an entire season. Peanuts are prevalent at baseball stadiums, making it difficult for children with peanut allergies to attend games. The Yard Goats held two peanut-free games last year where the park banned the item and did a deep clean of the stadium.

Charlie Brown accepts, but is a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to learn the meaning of Christmas.

    Southwest Airlines will discontinue its peanut snacks effective August 1 to accommodate travelers with allergies. The company confirmed the announcement in an email Tuesday to The Hill. “Peanuts forever will be part of Southwest’s history and DNA. However, to ensure the best on-board experience for everyone, especially for customers with peanut-related allergies, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue serving peanuts on all flights beginning August 1,” Southwest said in the statement. “We hope that our free pretzels (and the wonderful portfolio of free snacks on longer flights), served along with our legendary Southwest Hospitality, will please customers who might...

    They came for your laptops. And for your liquids, and your shoes. Now, the Transportation Security Administration is coming for your snacks. Passengers at airports around the country — including all three of the Washington region’s major airports — are reporting that, increasingly, TSA agents are instructing them to remove their snacks and other food items from their carry-ons and place them in those ubiquitous plastic bins for separate screening. It’s not part of agency’s standard policy, according to TSA spokesman Mike England. It’s simply a recommendation issued by the agency last year to help speed the bag-check process. Screening...

    Charles Schulz insisted on one core purpose: A ...Charlie Brown Christmas had to be about something. Namely, the true meaning of Christmas. Otherwise, Schulz said, “Why bother doing it?” To Coca-Cola’s credit, Mendelson says, the corporate sponsor never balked at the idea of including New Testament passages. The result — Linus’s reading from the Book of Luke about the meaning of the season — became “the most magical two minutes in all of TV animation,” the producer says....

    Nuts are an on-the-go snacking staple, yet they are also potentially deadly to a small fraction of the UK population. So is it time to crack down on eating nuts in public and if so, where should we start? About two million people in the UK have a food allergy, with fish, shellfish and nuts among the most common types. More than 25,000 people were admitted to hospital in England for allergies between 2015 and 2016 - a third higher than four years earlier - and the number of people treated for anaphylactic shock is also on the rise. So...
