              Funny and very well done, but as for my family and friends, it seems the opposite is true...it's  the younger generation that has all these issues.
               
              EG: Thanksgiving, family and friends. Me, my wife, sister, sister in law, daughter's boyfriends parents, family friend couple. All in our late 50's early/mid 60's. Whatever is put in front of us we eat and drink.
               
              Then there was my son, daughter, her boyfriend, family friends' two kids in their 20's. Who doesn't eat meat, who doesn't eat peanut stuff, who's not drinking anymore, who's gaining weight, who only eats organic, is the turkey free range (It's from Costco, how the F should I know)... 
               
              Sheesh.

                Ken, I hear it from my kids and even more from the older grandkids . We tend to participate for whatever meal is done, and then bow-out gracefully as soon as a dessert is served.  I have come close to sharing my honest opinion of those who have to sub-divide every stage of every meal into catagories more finite than Jeapordy clues.
                Meal time should be a joyful event, Not a platform for selling "Organic based Lifestyles".

                  It's a great video.  Here's one with a little less emphasis on food, and more on the season...sort of....

                      I'm thankful that every meal that was put in front of me as a kid started with my mother saying "grace" and then we all just ate and it was wonderful.  When the family came, my mother cooked as usual and we all ate.......lots!  There was no..."I can't eat this or that, or is there butter in here, cream?" 
                      I try to stick to a low-fat diet, but I would never, ever impose that on my guests!  I learned from Julia, "More butter, more cream, more wine and Cognac."

                        There are people who really have dietary needs, and then those who "have" them in order to control people around them, even in a small way. I've identified a few in my life, and they get the "ok, don't eat then" treatment from me.
                         
                        If there is something in front of me I can't eat because it'll make me sick, I just say no thank you and load up on something else. You won't hear a lecture or lengthy explanation from me, just pass the gravy, please.

                          That video reminded me SOOOOOO much of my Cousin Sue, she once got up from Thanksgiving Dinner to excuse herself and hurried to the bathroom and relieved her self.  She came from the bathroom saying everything was just TOOOO Rich for her, so she ate the veggie plate instead of the real food we all had
