Today Stephen Tremp announced the release date for his third book, Escalation. It will be on March 10. It is the last book in his trilogy which is based on the premise of the existence of usable wormholes. His ideas are pretty scary and from what he is writing about book three, I think things will get scarier yet. Apparently this book is very far reaching and will include the possibility of a third world war as well as the ability of aliens to visit us through these wormholes which are being used so carelessly. As far as I am aware, nobody has yet come up with such a thing, but I had never realised what wormholes could lead to, pun intended.
Have to get going this morning as I have my diabetes blood test at 8:20 a.m. Fasting for 12 hours before hand. Luckily, these days I can make an appointment, much better than the days when one had to turn up at 6:30 ish in the hopes of being first in line when the doors opened at 7.
Here’s a very simple snacking recipe, especially if you are watching your weight. I have seen cream cheese in celery before, but never the addition of olive slices or, as also suggested, pickled jalapenos. These are 62 calories a serving. I have celery on my shopping list this week anyway, and I certainly have olives. No Neufchatel but I do have Philly cheese.

Give this childhood treat a savory twist by swapping the peanut butter and raisins for cream cheese and olives. For a spicy snack, try chopped pickled jalapenos instead of olives.
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
- 5 pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced
- Spread celery with cream cheese. Top with olives.
