Balanced Diet

Wouldn’t you just love to go back to the days when you didn’t have to worry about what you ate?  Not a care in the world about getting enough of this vitamin or that vitamin?  Or not worrying about low-carb, low-fat, or high protein, Paleo, green coffee bean, etc. diets?  Well, I’m here to say that this sign took me back to those carefree days this morning.  It hangs in our favorite breakfast place … Jethro’s.

When I was a young and skinny kid, my best friend and I would scrounge up enough nickels and dimes to go to the local food store and buy a Pepsi in a glass bottle and a package of Hostess cupcakes.  Of course, that was back in the day when nothing had high fructose corn syrup.  Yeah, that was a lot of sugar but we burned it off riding our bikes all day long.  I miss those days.  I still like Pepsi but don’t drink it much.  If I do, it’s their throwback version, made with sugar instead of HFCS.  As for the cupcakes, well, they just don’t taste the same as they did back then, so I don’t eat them very often either.

Hope you’re having a great weekend.  If the Falcons and the Ravens win their games today, we’ll have a “bird bowl” on Super Bowl Sunday.  Personally I’m a fan of the 49’ers AND the Patriots, so if they win today, (and both teams are favored to win) I’ll find myself in quite a quandry.  Yikes!  Namaste’

Stand On Your Head

While waiting outside a restaurant, I turned around and there was this crazy sign. I thought I was seeing things but it truly was bolted to the wall upside down.  Somebody had way too much time on their hands.  Namaste’
