Ugh, its nearly 6:30 a.m. and I am ready to go out and get my blood work done which I do every three months or so to check on my diabetes A1C. I now have to go and stand outside the clinic in the cold, it is -15°C, to be one of the first in line to go into the place when it opens. I am not good at standing at the best of times, and having to stand outside in the cold is NOT my idea of fun.
Something I get really teed off about is all the tips one gets on weight loss. One that springs to mind is cut out sugar and use a substitute and you will lose 10 lbs a year, I don’t take sugar. There are dozens of tips like this on TV and the internet every one of which I already do or don’t do and yet I don’t lose weight. It is really annoying.
Did you hear about the 30 million tons of ice which broke off the Tasman glacier as a result of the earthquake in New Zealand, can you imagine that, 30 million tons. It fell into a lake causing 3.5 meter waves to spread back and forth for a while, glad I wasn’t on the lake.
The Oscars are on Sunday so now I am getting recipes which are designed to be served on that festive occasion. This one appealed although of course I personally would prefer fresh shrimp which I cooked myself and then chilled.
