There is a commercial on TV for Special K cereal that says if you have a bowl of Special K every day for two weeks that you will lose weight. I don’t remember if it says you have to do anything else for this diet. Of course, you want to eat other healthy foods and watch the serving sizes if you are going to diet. But their promise is that if you eat Special K every day that you will lose one jeans size in two weeks. That’s a pretty ambitious promise. I could use a smaller size of jeans. So I’m on my 4th day of the Special K diet and we’ll see if it works!
There has always been something about drums that just get me jazzed! I’m sure that if there was a way for my folks to save on drum for kids, back in the day, that they still wouldn’t have allow me to play a musical instrument as loud as the drums. I did manage to get a few years of piano lessons by an elderly lady down the street. But I never really improved and lost interest. I often wonder if I had been able to have a drum set at that age, if I would still be playing.
Maybe when I make up my Bucket List, learning how to play the drums will be part of that list.
My best friend and I went totally ga ga over the book, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, way back in junior high school. We completely devoured that book in a matter of days, and were most pleased to find that in 8th grade English class that our favorite book was one of the required readings, which needed a book report done on completion. We knew we had it made it the shade for that one, and we did. I remember both of us teaming up together and getting an A+ on it. Easiest A+ ever!
It was most unfortunate that when the movie came out that we were not happy with it one bit, the actors that they had picked for the parts were all wrong and they left out so very much that was awesome in the book, but we watched it anyway, for what it was worth.
One of the features of the citizen eco drive watches that I really enjoy and respect is the fact that they are fueled by light, any type of light. They are watches that never need a battery, which is good for our Mother Earth in so many ways. Most of the people that know me know that I have been swept away by the GREEN movement and that if there is any way to help keep our Mother Earth healthy, I’m all for it. And that if you don’t do your part in this huge and very important effort than I really don’t have any use for you. I have made a lot of great friends all through my efforts and unfortunately have turned a few people off and away from me, which I consider this to be their loss, not mine.
All I ask is for people to do the right thing. Isn’t hard, it’s just a bit different. It’s nothing that requires much effort at all. Our brains need to think this through and then get started.
I can’t wait for summer. One of my favorite summer time recipes that I had my mother write the directions down for me, is Cucumbers in sour cream. It is a real nice cool and light treat that I have served to many of folks that have always seemed to enjoy eating it. So I thought that I would share this yummy recipe with you all, it is so easy and a nice change from just regular salads that we end up eating so much of these days in an effort to eat healthier and lighter.
CUCUMBERS IN SOUR CREAM
- 2 Medium Cucumbers
- 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
- 2 TB. Cider Vinegar
- 1 tsp. Sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
Peel cucumbers and slice thin. Layer cucumbers in a medium size bowl, cover with water and add the 1/2 tsp of salt. Place in refrigerator until nicely chilled. Pour off the salted water and rinse in clear water and drain. Blend sour cream, vinegar, and sugar. Fold in the cucumbers. Serve with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
