Migrant Ship, GMA Concerts.

Canadians, and in particular the authorities in British Columbia are very concerned about the Tamil ship which has now reached their shores. There may be all kinds of undesirables hidden among the genuine refugees and time will have to be taken to discover who they are. Meanwhile they will be housed in special compounds and I understand it may take months before they can be certain there are no Tamil Tigers amongst the refugees not to mention human smugglers – read here There are already a lot of protests in Canada that immigrants/refugees are treated better than seniors who have lived, worked and contributed to the country during their lives.

As usual we had Good Morning America on TV today. Towards the end they had the Jonas Brothers on to do one of the summer concerts in the park. Fine, if they want to do that, and people want to go, OK, but they try and do interviews with other guests (or even with the Jonas Brothers themselves) with the screaming background of the audience and it is totally impossible to hear what is being said. Even a weather report was completely incomprehensible with all the screamers surrounding the meteorologist. Pointless. They should continue to do interviews in the studio as usual rather than sending the whole crew over to the park.

I am always on the lookout for different breakfast foods as cereal and toast can get a tad boring. Actually I saw a chef on the Dr. Oz show the other day who had lost a lot of weight since discovering he had diabetes and one of his tips was to eat like a king at breakfast, like a princess for lunch and a pauper for supper. It is a fact, I have trouble losing weight these days which is not a good thing for someone with diabetes. Anyway, here is a slightly different twist on breakfast from Eating Well. Only trouble is you then have to figure out what to do with the yolks.

Egg & Salmon Sandwich

From EatingWell:  July/August 2008

Smoked salmon and egg whites on a toasted whole-wheat English muffin is the perfect power breakfast. For a more substantial meal, pair it with a piece of fruit or a glass of 100% juice.
