Here’s another post in my nearly world famous Electronic Sticky Note series. Posting the link here as summer is starting soon and I need better salads than the prepacked kits I tend to buy and eat. Click for the recipe https://thefirstmess.com/2023/05/24/hummus-crunch-salad/
On average, 86 percent of people surveyed for Statista’s Consumer Insights in 21 countries said that their diet contained meat – highlighting that despite the trend around meat substitutes and plant-based products, eating meat remains the norm almost everywhere in the world.

The first written records of pancakes come from the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Good information. I appreciate your sharing this. I’m still being a little bit more cautious myself. My group of ladies I do tai chi with want to go maskless. We are all vaccinated, but the other ladies do a lot of socializing. One in particular goes out to eat at least 5 times a week, attends the symphony, the opera, concerts, get-togethers at the yacht club, etc. And the people she socializes with travel extensively. So I’m keeping my mask, in fact double masking when we practice our tai chi inside.
On the other hand, when I go to the gym, I no longer wear a mask. But at the time I go there are usually only 0 – 2 people besides myself. And I no longer do cardio at the gym. Only weights and stretching.
Risk tolerance is an individual thing. We just got back from a Texas family visit. I had lunch out in a sit down restaurant for the first time in over a year. Brother in law, his son and daughter in law all unvaccinated. All restaurant staff were masked. Customers all respected distancing and there were zero adjacent tables/booths occupied. I felt quite safe but plan on still limiting any dine in restaurant meals for a while. Still no gym for me but in a few months will consider signing up for a membership somewhere. I am approaching my “reopening” cautiously until more of the general population gets jabbed!
