    Todays park visit was lovely even though I had to pick up 45 canisters & just 2 balloons from the carpark before we entered the park itself. It must be a new activity around here as I had to learn through wiki, & was able to relay this knowledge to others that asked what I was doing. This lot were sloppy in that they not only threw their canisters & balloons on the ground for others to pick up but theyve also dropped a shopping docket. It didnt list cream whipping cartridges just diesel & candy bars but it did have a lot of personal details on it.

    What a great headline that would read. Drones play a good role in shark watching here. Were still in the whale migrating season where theyre heading back to Antarctica waters with their new calves. The magnificence of such a sight stays with ones treasured memories forever. 7.5 fbg for me

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    93 today. @Diana_CT - Came across this interesting article about Cape Cod... https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/cape-cod-s-new-normal-sharks-are-everywhere/ar-AAFWfzQ?li=BBnb4R5 One similar article my daughter came across was headlined "Sharks bully swimmers out of the water". Her comment was the headline should have read, "Native shark species reclaim territory". Saturday was a fun day. My friend, Simon, and I rode up to Volcano. We have an unspoken rivalry being close in age. He won the last downhill race we had in the last instant. I relaxed just a little at the end and he snatched it. It is 29 miles to the park sign. All uphill from sea level to just under 4,000'. It was a hot muggy day. The group riders were done by 8:30. Simon proposed to me to go to Volcano and I was crazy enough to agree. We rode together to mile 20 and then stopped at the store for a rest. The next 6 miles are the steepest and, for me, the toughest. The climb is about 1500' in those 6 miles. The sun just beats down on you and maybe the air getting thinner plays a role too. I have brought sealed empty drink bottles down and they are smooshed when they get to sea level. I find my best strategy is to just power through it no matter how bad it gets. Resting halfway doesn't help much. I just powered my way up and I was a good 10 minutes ahead of Simon at the top.

    My favorite flooring for my kitchen is always mottled grey. I've had tiles, cushion floor and ceramic. The flooring may change but the color remains the same.Unless there's a big spill on it, it never shows the dirt. Not that I don't clean it but especially at gardening time when there is less time for housework and you are walking on it with dirty shoes it is really nice that it doesn't look dirty. I've always maintained that if visitors come to see me they are welcome. If they come to see my house then stay home. I'm not a fanatic when it comes to housework. I do like it to be reasonably presentable but I'm not opposed to a little clutter. It eventually gets cleaned up but it doesn't bother me if I don't have the time or inclination to do it immediately. I am a fanatic about putting things away in their proper place though.That is not a cleaning fetish but a convenience factor. I like being able to access things when I want them.

    The day for the dermatologist is finally here 😀 Haven't slept at all tonight because of the itching. Wound care doc gave me a script for prednisone and today is day 3. It has helped a lot but I have to know what is causing the rash.

    Am I just becoming a grumpy old woman or am I just not in tune with the young gen's need of recreational drugs. I decided to go to the park later on Mondays hoping others will pick up the mess in the carpark but it was still there waiting for me at midday. No tiny plastic bags with white powder today & thankfully no used condoms. Todays mess was a pink pill that couldve been devastating if a dog had eaten it. I found it among the steel gas cylinders, all 30 of them & lots of balloons. I didnt realise what the balloons for for until wiki explained it. I now know I shouldve picked up a plastic 'thing' that wiki said is a cracker. Could using this nitrous oxide be responsible for esophagus cancers as it does cause frost bite. from wiki... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whipped-cream_charger Recreational drug[edit] A whipped-cream charger cracker Further information: Recreational use of nitrous oxide Because of their availability, chargers are usually the method of choice for users seeking to use nitrous oxide recreationally.[3] Tanks of medical grade nitrous are difficult to obtain, and auto-grade nitrous contains substances such as sulfur dioxide to prevent human consumption. Chargers are cheaply available in many stores and online. To inhale from a charger, users either fill a balloon using a cracker, or fill an empty whipped cream dispenser and inhale from it, or likewise use it to fill a balloon, since the potentially rapid rush of gas from the spout of the dispenser may be too harsh. Inhaling directly from a cracker is particularly dangerous due to the risk of developing frostbite on the inside of the mouth or oesophagus.[4][5] The 8 gram nitrous oxide steel cylinder charger when discharged into an empty whipped cream dispenser (Mosa Corp, Taiwan) creates a pressure of 30 pounds per square inch (200kPa) and delivers 3.24 litres of nitrous oxide gas.[6] A cracker is a small device, usually made from metal, which contains two halves. The bottom half is where the charger is placed, and the top half has a pin which pierces the foil of the charger. The top half screws onto the bottom half, and then releases the gas out the top. Using a balloon with the cracker is important because when the gas is released from the charger it is extremely cold and can cause frostbite in the lips, tongue, throat, and lungs, so the gas is allowed to warm up inside the balloon before inhaling.

    Bitter Melon supplements

    I have a good rapport with my Doctor and Pharmacist, great ladies, also on my Christmas chocolate list. Some of these supplements got me off my cholesterol med's after 5 years of wasted $. She knows I trust some of these, more than drugs. 81 mg, yes, I have been reading up on that. Now that I am on Medicare, it is nice that labs appear to be free now. Bitter Melon, as a kid I ate that in a dish of beef, veggies over rice. Never really got used to the taste, lucky these are 600 mg supplements.

    Brie is a type of French cheese. Debris is rubble or wreckage. Lots of de Brie is left after a cheese factory is destroyed.

    Don this has stumped me & I often have to explain my jokes. so google to the rescue. Brie means marshland....so perhaps the fire burnt the factory to the ground allowing it to return to nothing but marshland?

    Meds can make a difference so thats another barrier for you. Moving is important to burn up those cals. Even arm swings while sitting is better then nothing, or getting up & sitting down often without walking is good. Try ballet dancing while sitting in your chair.. its a good upper body work out. Music makes it easier. Ive been looking at exercises while sitting when a painful abdomen keeps me from getting about. Theres lots even on youtube. use words like exercise for disabled in the search. https://www.helpguide.org/articles/healthy-living/chair-exercises-and-limited-mobility-fitness.htm

    Theres nothing wrong with your food choices & I wish you lived close as I'd be knocking on your door right on meal time it was the scrambled eggs with feta that got me.

    I've not been eating anything fancy adiantum. 2-3 strips of bacon for breakfast with black tea and a splash of milk. lunch varies between one or two small chicken thighs or if i'm more adventurous a small head of romaine with hamburger in a bit of tomato sauce. usually in the afternoon i will have a slice of cheese. dinner is all over the place. sometimes i have a 5carb yogurt with flax. sometimes i might eat half a cucumber with some cream cheese. and as i said at some point i might have a few bites of home made chocolate. during the day i drink water, crystal light or diet pepsi. those meats will sometimes be replaced with ham or pork,
