Haha! That’s funny. I think I understand what you mean, bring my daughter the teenager inside of me.
You are absolutely correct Joel. When ours and other political systems were developed there was not 7.5 Billion people on the planet. So, for any system to expect to remain the same, with the same ideals and expectations a couple hundred years later and with literally millions more people in our nation alone, and all of the technological complexities and many other advancements that have come along, is just folly. It is pure ignorance and stagnation to have these expectations here or anywhere really. Yes, it is true what you said about the speech as well. To me, this again speaks to ignorance and it is profoundly sad that nearly half of the people here or anywhere can be affected and influenced by such simplicity. It does not speak well of the intellect of this nation. It shows we do not value education more than we do our own individual feelings on a few specific issues and because many are not very educated, it is this oversimplification of specific issues that is all they have to gauge what they feel is important. The big picture is not something humans in general are very good at taking a look at for sure. If we were, we would not have the environmental issues and pending doom environmentally that we have. Again we have found ourselves in a very deep and complex subject! It will be much better to hear about the food you are making for sure! That subject does not trigger me to want to smoke like politics can. I hope one day to have that not be a trigger as well. So, in the meantime, yes! Let’s hold hands and be more like you and my daughter. It makes the world a much better place that way!
Good morning Joel! Is it time for you to rise and shine yet?
I hope you finally got some peaceful sleep and had very good dreams. Do you remember your dreams? I very rarely do. Hardly ever. I learned when I was using the NRT patch to take it off before bed because it gave me very vivid dreams and I didn’t like it! I like my sleep without dreams. But when awake, having dreams is the best!!
Where are you?? You better not be out smoking! That would make me very sad!!
What are cooking for dinner? I am hungry and too lazy now to cook! Maybe you will give me ideas. I will hop over and ask Tiny too as I have not seen her today either...
Hi Lorie,the teenager came twice in my previous message.it was a typing mistake.but i liked the way you guessed it.it makes sense too.Your daughter could bring the teenager inside of you and i could bring the teenager inside of you.what i meant was i would love to bring the young you that lies within you.Yes lets end the politics discussion.i dont know much about it and you know the dark side of politics,that drive you nervous.Talking about the food i consume,i eat a lot of variety of foods.the bread with the hole,pasta with sausage,milk with cornflakes,bread and nutella,tuna sandwich,salmon,chicken,pork,beef,eggs,rice with chiken made spicy,poutine with buffalo sause,pancake and maple syrup, a whole lot of fruits with grapes being my favorite,kiwis comes second and green apple comes third,then comes the banana.i like strawberry and blackberry jam.Peanut butter,dumplings,shrimp,tortilla,dark chocolates,carrots,cabbage,ginger ale,yogurt and many more to list.now these are all familiar to you but i have a lot of other indian cuisine that i eat but i wont describe it hear as it may sound very odd and unfamiliar to you. I would like to hear what you eat Lorie.give special reference to your favorite and if possible,the steps to make it.
I want to give that beautiful hand full of tattoos some work to do.
Haha! Oh boy! You do eat lots of good stuff!
My favorite is the Salmon, and I make it very simple. I am also very partial to Pacific Salmon and much prefer the way it tastes more than Atlantic Salmon that I grew up on. They are actually quite different. I broil it in the oven. First I poke it with a fork, a lot! To make little holes so when I squeeze lemon on it it goes down into it. Then I grind pepper on it. If there spots that are thin, like near the tail end, I put a tiny bit of butter because that part cooks much quicker in the broiler and will burn fast. Then I put it in the oven set to Broil, with the pan not too far from the top where the broiler heat elements are. Then it about 10 minutes it is done! Very very simple. I love it so much I do not want a lot of extra things on it, or sauce or any of that. It is too good to hide the flavor with those things. I like to make asparagus to have with it too. This I get fresh and use a steamer. Just a little butter and salt when it is done. Usually I have a salad too. Sometimes I will make couscous with it, but not always. I try not to eat that many starchy things. I like things like bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, etc but I do not want all of those kind of carbohydrates very often. My diet is mostly fruit, vegetables, protein like cheese, eggs, milk. I eat beans too. I will eat oatmeal sometimes with turmeric and ginger. That is very good! Sometimes cold cereal. I make soups and will eat that for a few days until it is gone too. I really don’t like to cook much Joe. But I told Tiny about a grilled peanut butter and jam sandwich that I make and put jalapeños on it. It is very good! You can put bacon on it if you want too, but I don’t eat bacon anymore really. You could try this as it is easy! And you only have to clean one pan! That is the best part!
Now I’m going to walk. It is warm here now for some reason and not raining. So a perfect night.
Hope you get some rest! It messes up your sleep to work two night shifts and then be off, right?
Good morning Lorie,is it time for you to rise and shine yet?You are a healthy eater indeed.your method of preparation of salmon is very wise.its a good practice to apply butter on areas where it could possibly get burned easily.Applying butter could make it more juicy and well cooked.good job Lorie.you are brave.
Have you ever watched Gorden Ramseys show?it really makes me laugh.He is so particular when it comes to cooking. So,what are your plans today?i hope you are having a good time Lorie.Oatmeal seem to be a delicious and healthy meal.i ate with bananas as seasoning and a bit of peanut butter.i eat small meals through out the day.
Good morning Joe!
I have risen this morning but not shining yet! Meaning I would like to still be sleeping!
I have not seen this show yet. Right now I am trying to figure out everything for my daughter who has a dental problem. So I will write more soon!
I have had stressful day and will write more about later. There have been several times I wanted to smoke, but don’t worry! I didn’t! I don’t want to let you and my friends here down, but deep down I also know I don’t need a smoke.
I hope you are ok. It has been too busy today to plan any cooking or go to the store so we are getting Thai Food to bring home! Do you like Thai Food Joe? I know if you do you like it spicy, right?
More soon my friend.
As you pass through all these stressful days without the need for a smoke,you are getting more stronger and wiser in this battle.I havent tried Thai food yet Lorie,but i heard they are very tasty.They dont add much spices or sauce so you can enjoy the original taste.i hope you like it that way right?i remember the way you make Salmon.it must be very tasty and we could enjoy the real taste,without much spices.Keep fighting Lorie,the stress is not powerful than your determination of not to smoke.i am proud of you.
