ROB MCCLENDON:  WELL FINALLY TODAY IN HIS WEEKLY TELEGRAM, WILL ROBERTS TELLS US WHY MOM’S NUTRITIONAL ADVICE COULD WELL BE APPLIED TO TODAY’S ECONOMY.

WILL ROBERTS:  NOW RECENTLY I WAS ON A PLANE COMING HOME FROM DENVER, COLORADO, AND MET THIS MAN AND HIS WIFE, NICE FOLKS.  IT HAD BEEN A LONG DAY, AND WELL, CONVERSATION WAS THE LAST THINGS ON MY MIND, OR MY TONGUE.  HOWEVER, WHEN YOU’RE ON A PLANE IN THE AIR, YOU BETTER BE GOOD AT EITHER LISTENING TO PEOPLE TALK OR LOOKING LIKE YOU’RE ASLEEP; I'M BETTER AT THE FIRT ONE, I’M ALL EARS.  SO HE TALKED AND I LISTENED.  OUR WHOLE CONVERSATION STARTED WITH A CAN OF COKE AND ENDED UP WITH THE STATEMENT, EVER SINCE MY WIFE I GOT MARRIED, WE DECIDED WE DIDN'T LIKE VEGETABLES, SO WE DON'T EAT ‘EM ANYMORE.  WHAT?!  [HORN BLOWING]  SEE, I USED TO LIVE IN THE SALAD BOWL OF THE WORLD, CENTRAL CALIFORNIA, LETTUCE, ARTICHOKES, GARLIC, YOU NAME IT, WE HAD IT, AND A FESTIVAL TO BOOT!  [KIDS CHEERING]  AND THE ODDEST ONE, THE GARLIC FESTIVAL; THEY HAD GARLIC CANDY, GARLIC DRINKS, AND EVEN GARLIC ICE CREAM.  [YUK!]

BUT LIVING THERE, I REALIZED HOW IMPORTANT AGRICULTURE WAS TO THAT AREA AND THIS COUNTRY; NOT ONLY FROM AN EAT YOUR VEGETABLES STANDPOINT, BUT FROM A WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR.  YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, FOR INSTANCE, THE MIDDLE EAST – OIL, RUSSIA – VODKA,  GERMANY – WARM BEER, CHINA – LEAD TOYS [CHILD GIGGLING], THE USA, WELL – AGRUCULCURE, FARMS, IT’S WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON AND AROUND.  [TRACTOR STARTING]

HERE’S MY PLAN, EAT YOUR VEGETABLES, AND BUY LOCALLY; IT’LL HELP THE ECONOMY RIGHT WHERE YOU LIVE, AND IT’LL TASTE A LOT BETTER TOO.  I’M WILL ROBERTS AND THIS IS YOUR WEEKLY TELEGRAM.

UMM, THAT TASTES GOOD; I HAVE QUITE A GREEN THUMB.  OH, JUST A SAYING.
