This, that, and t'other ( ramblings of a restless mind)

RUPERT BEAR entered my mind today.  If you were born and raised in the U.S. you may never had heard of him.   I think of him as one of my childhood friends.

With his best friend Bill Badger



I thought too of Edgar Allan Poe.  

Years ago I had an amusing  wee book which reproduced bloopers from newspapers, term papers etc.

One which sticks in my mind is from a student who wrote that "Edgar Allan Poe was dismissed from College for gamboling."

Sheep get it wrong too.


Variation on a theme.

I prepared some Chicken Salad today.  But instead of the usual accouterments I used broken up walnuts and dried cranberries.

I am enjoying this healthy eating!

Three good meals per day. High protein, fruits and vegetables, low carbs.    No snacking.  

I am enjoying my meals so much.

For lunch today:

Roasted carrot, parsnip and mushroom.  Leftover cauliflower cheese, with tomato added.

A bit low on protein today, but some in the grated cheese used to make the cauliflower dish.

The roasted veggies were "heavenly" especially the parsnip.

Am I bad for liking these during the crisis?

I spent a bit extra to buy these at our local Detwiler's Farm Market.

Oh boy they are good!   Very good.  They have a richer and fuller flavour than the ordinary supermarket shelf eggs.

I think that I'd rather spend  a little extra, and then cut my egg consumption in half in order to enjoy the more expensive eggs.

jmp:  the two egg a day man.

In what business is this store?

It's on Orange Ave,just north of Fruitville Rd; on the fringes of the Rosemary District.

The sign amuses me.

Do they retail



Convex mirrors


Convoluted arguments








Converse sports shoes



You can tell that I have too much time on my hands!

My list is made without the aid of a dictionary.  Add to it if you will; but without a  dictionary
