Another short post today. There’s too much bracketball to watch today. Breakfast – Roasted chickpeas and veggies Lunch – Ampaipitakwong Fried Rice (aka Pete’s), egg roll (yes, it does resemble last night’s dinner) Dinner – Chicken fajitas I enjoyed tracking my meals this week and learned a lot. I no longer need to track consumption like […]
Short post today. The Boss is Back and there will be Boss directed activities to be done today. Even More Things I Learned This Week Rock hard green avocados ripen faster when placed in a bowl with very ripe spotted bananas. Fresh grapes satisfy my sweet tooth. I forgot to weigh myself this morning. “Daily […]
Friday 3/24 After 47 years as a cardiologist with 200,000 patient visits, I can firmly say that vegans are my healthiest patients. I certainly agree with you it is not easy. My position is that 90% vegan which is 19 of 21 meals a week will do just fine. Foods should be, prior to preparation, […]
I just found this. The file is dated 12.26.2017. No wonder why the cumin, paprika, parsley, salt and pepper are missing.
Thurs 3/23 Update 5:25 pm I’m learning a lot about myself this week from tracking my meals. Since The Boss is away my meals and eating habits are totally my own. I don’t have to think about, shop for, plan or cook with someone else’s preferences in mind. I like not having regularly scheduled meals. […]

This is really scary. What do you think it means for us?
New car dealerships are now offering no payments for 3-6 months and zero percent interest financing. New cars are not selling. If the used car market tanks that becomes both sides of the coin. We saved Detroit and the auto industry in 2008-09. This time I don’t see another bailout. Best case scenario will be a much smaller vehicle manufacturing/employment sector with some really good bargains for those of us who still have jobs.
Do you foresee with your vehicles being manufactured, that in a few years it might be difficult to find a new car to buy!
No. There will be fewer choices but we’ll still have new cars to buy. And we’ll have more used rather than new options. I foresee less air travel and more people taking car trips. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.
It certainly will be interesting. I don’t know yet whether I will be in the market for another car. I really like my two vehicles. But one is 18 years old, and the other is 24 years old. I would like to keep them for the rest of my life, but if either one requires an extremely expensive repair, I would probably be better off to purchase another car. I prefer to keep these. Whenever I rent or use a new loaner, I don’t like the touchscreen. I do like the modern things like a back up camera and push button to open the tailgate. But I find in the newer cars making simple adjustments to climate control and radio take my eyes off the road for too long.
