    Mrs. Salty and I will be hosting a 4th of July picnic on July 4th.

    We have decided we do not want any nicotine fits or alcohol at our party.

    What would be a humerus yet effective way to write the invitations so those subsidences are not brought onto Saltyland?

    (and asking Poncho, Free and Pvt Wrenn to stand guard duty with their M-16 is not the answer I am looking for)


    Now for the big challenge ( we have no problems - we just overcome challenges!)

    There are two friends we would like to invite - but they do not get along - and do not like each other.
    Should we invite both? If one says - if the other comes I'm not.....
    If they both come......

    Answers, we need answers!

    In the invitation just put:

    "We prefer to celebrate our nation without the smell of smoke and we like our friends sober. Please leave your smokes and alcohol at your house."

    No need to beat around the bush.

    Great idea Salty! I would like to recommend you go all out against sin and overindulgences at your party so will offer the following suggestions:


    Also, concerning gluttony and heart disease, if you would like to come to this July 4th party, please refrain from ingesting the following unacceptable levels of: sugar, salt, and calories. Below are the expected guidelines we would like you follow:


    Sugar


    • The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends: 37 grams for men (150 cal, 7.4tsp) and 25 grams for women (100 cal, 5tsp).
    • The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends: 32 grams (128cal, 6.4tsp) for a 2000 calorie diet.
    · If you have eaten sugar before you come, please limit intake accordingly!


    Salt


    According to the Food Standards Agency, United Kingdom, the human Guideline Daily Amount (GDA) should be:
    · Age 11 years and over, 6g per day
    · Age 7-10 years, 5g per day
    · Age 4-6 years, 3g per day
    · Age 1-3 years, 2g per day
    Infants under 1 year should not be given salt because their kidneys are not matured.

    · If you have eaten salt before you come, please limit intake accordingly!


    Calories


    This event will be serving one meal. Please refer to the calorie counter below and divide the total amount of acceptable maintenance calories by 1/3.

    http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

    If you do not have internet access please use go by the following guidelines and divide the total by 1/3.:

    Men
    Men consume between 2,000 and 2,800 calories a day according to The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Men age 60 and over average 2,000 calories every day. Men between the ages of 20 and 59 average more than 2,500 calories every day. The current recommendations of the UK Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy, for men, is also 2,500 calories. If you do regular, high-impact, cardiovascular, high-calorie burning physical exercise you will need to consume more calories. Your body will naturally let you know if you're calorie or energy deficient.

    Women
    Women between ages 20 and 59 consume between 1,750 and 2,000 every 24 hours, whereas women aged 60 and over consume 1,500 calories a day. The recommended figure for women is 2,000 calories.

    Children
    Boys between the ages of 6 and 11 consume 2,300 calories every day. Teenage boys between the ages of 12 and 19 consume 2,700 calories. Girls between the ages of 6 and 11 consume 1,900 calories a day whereas between the ages of 12 and 19, the daily calorie intake is 2,000.


    Thank you, and hope to see you soon!
