Medical, Weekend News, Online Shopping,

I may be imagining it, I have only been taking my cannabis since Saturday, but I think there are signs of improvement. Fingers crossed.

Not much to write about today, been a quiet couple of days for us. Interesting about the guys who stole planes over the weekend, one who stole a passenger plane, did lots of aerobatics and then crashing it into the ground and then the guy who stole a jet and crashed it into his own home. He died, I believe the people in the house didn't. There really are some nutters around but how they managed to steal these planes is something they will certainly have to look into. As for flying them without training, it appears you can learn to do that on the internet. What can't you learn to do on the internet? One of the things that scares me is the gun manufacturers who have posted designs which can be copied and printed as genuine plastic guns which work. That is really scary.

Just posted my grocery order and once again, couldn't post the order from my desktop but had to use my tablet. I don't know what is the matter with their website it does the oddest things. When I sign in it tells me the password doesn't match the email and yet it brings up my order!!!

If my legs really are improving, I am sorry that Wednesday league bowling is doesn't count any more. However when we start again in September, maybe things will be good.

Salmon is such a tasty fish, not too expensive and easy to use. We eat quite a lot of it.

Barbecue-Style Bourbon-Glazed Salmon With Firecracker Slaw

This recipe hits all the notes of a classic barbecue dish, but with omega-3-rich fish. Use an outdoor
grill or indoor grill pan.

3 cups very thinly sliced cabbage
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, divided
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
1 Fresno chile, seeded and sliced
2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
3/4 tsp granulated sugar (optional)
3/4 tsp black pepper, divided
1/2 tsp kosher salt, divided
3 Tbs dark brown sugar
1 Tbs bourbon
1 Tbs lower-sodium soy sauce
4 6 oz   skin-on salmon fillets (such as wild Alaskan)

1. Preheat a charcoal grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F).

2. Place cabbage, 1/4 cup scallions, carrot, mayonnaise, chile, vinegar, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Stir well to combine. Chill until ready to serve.

3. Whisk together brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Pour into a shallow dish. Place salmon, flesh side down, in sauce. Chill 15 minutes.

4. Remove salmon from dish. Place marinade in a saucepan; boil 2 minutes. Place salmon, skin side down, on oiled grates; grill, covered, to desired degree of doneness, 10 to 12 minutes for medium, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade. Place on a platter; top with remaining 1/4 cup scallions and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve with slaw.

Have a great day


  1. Fingers crossed the cannabis is working, Jo.
    I can't get my head around how 3D printing works but it obviously does and also obviously people will abuse it..

    1. Thanks Helen. I saw a programme on TV where they were printing a copy of a mummy or something similar which they dare not actually examine. Took days but they ended up with an exact copy. They have such a printer in our library system although it would only do very small stuff.

  2. Stealing and flying a plane when you don't know how is really nutty.

    1. Well he got it up in the air Alex and did all kinds of aerobatics. I guess he never intended to land it.

  3. Hi Jo - well good to know it appears to be working ... and I do love Salmon - cheers Hilary

    1. Only appears, so far Hilary. Salmon should be plentiful in your neck of the woods I was thinking the other day, do you plan to go whale watching? Something I would love to do.

  4. I don't know if you've heard of 'the barefoot bandit' but he was a teen boy that was stealing private planes and flying them around. He managed to get all the way to like the Bahamas or some island in the Caribbean. He would break into places barefoot. You should google him. Colton Harris Moore. He just got out of jail not too long ago.

    1. No I never have heard of him JoJo. Fascinating, I will Google him.

  5. I think it is working so I will keep my fingers crossed. yeah, that man did all sorts of plane aerobics before crashing it. They need to make things more difficult for the ground crew to just hop in and fly. I heard they will be looking into this. I love salmon and this sounds like a good recipe

    1. Today I didn't think anything was working. Been a bad one Birgit. Yes, they do need to make it more difficult for them. I love salmon too.

  6. Yep, there are a lot of nutters out there. Glad the people in the house didn’t die. Odd that, about the desktop and then your order is there. Excellent to read that your legs are improving!

    1. There certainly are, that second guy had had a fight with his wife, an extreme way to finish it I think Ivy. Not today sadly.

    2. Here's to getting to the bottom of your leg issues, soon.
