As Nooner pointed out, this is the one year anniversary of my last cigarette. Hoo-ah! I have gained alot of weight and it is very hard to lose. However, when I was still smoking, I wouldn’t go up or down the stairs until a half hour after my last cigarette! It was that bad (although my pulmonary function test at the doctor wasn’t half bad!).
Did you know that 50% of the U.S. population and 90% of American women are said to be on diets at any given time?
My area of the Atlantic northeast is preparing for our first snow storm of the season. The forecast keeps changing so we will either have all rain, snow turning into rain or snow turning into freezing rain before turning back into snow again. I guess we will just have to see tomorrow night and Wednesday!
Each year, 70% of the U.S supply of antibiotics ends up in animal feed. Can you say, "Ewww?!"
I am looking for a good recipe for Mahi Mahi (a type of fish also known as Dolphin fish). The last recipe I used wasn’t a winner and I still have some frozen. Have any ideas?
In Colonial America, six-foot lobsters were caught near what is now New York City, flocks of birds darkened the sky for hours at a time and five-foot codfish inhabited the waters off Maine.
When my dd was pregnant with Isabella, I knew that I didn’t want to be called Grandma. There is nothing wrong with that moniker. I am just the type of person who likes something different. As my ethnic heritage includes Italian and Spanish, I thought of Nonna and Ita (short for Abuelita or little Grandma). Figuring that one of a child’s first words is, "No!" I chose Nonna. My dd told me that Bells has been known to say , "Na, na, na," but I am not convinced that she is not thinking of the song that follows those syllables with, "hey, hey, hey, good-bye!" It will be coming any day, eh? After all, she is a genius, right?
On a typical 16th century English warship, a sailor’s weekly ration of beer was about eight gallons, or roughly ten pints per day. Shoot! I’m under the table after one and a half beers!
Here’s hoping that you all have a great week. The trivia is courtesy of Gourmet magazine.
