okay friends ...bragging rights have been earned

Everyone one of these kids swam in the local swim-a-thon. They completed 5000 metres in under 2 hrs. (200 lengths) Thats the equivalent of 3.1 miles Even the 7 yr old on the boys shoulders. She's like a machine.

I'm in total awe of these kids and can't help bragging about it. Its in perspective for me, because I swim 2 or 3 mornings a week myself and

I'm winded after 4 lengths.

The boy supporting the girls left leg missed qualifying for the summer olympics by less than a second. He isn't even sixteen. Its amazing to watch him swim.
No doubt you will all hear his name at the summer games in Brazil/2016

Thanks for reading

Smoothies!!

Great for a quick breakfast on the go

a cup of fresh or frozen fruit (whatever you like We have a strawberry farm down the rd so there is always some in the freezer)

Vanilla yogurt
milk
orange juice ( optional)
wheat germ (optional)

throw the fruit in the blender and puree. if its frozen add a few splashes of milk or juice to keep it from getting stuck

Add a cup or so yogurt depending on how much you want to make

a teaspoon of wheat germ for extra nutrition if you like

I am getting good at this self control thing. I went to Costco today and totally resisted the urge to cut somebody. Anybody

I got sucked into a membership last summer after listening to people go on about how great it is. Everytime I go I swear it will be the last.
I know how to dapple in gluttony just as good as anybody, but come on, do I really need 2 litres of mayo or pancake syrup. Or 48 rolls of papertowel. How about a second house to store it all in. Plus I have to pay for the privilege of shopping there. Whats with that???

I bought one thing...a 800 gram bag of dried mangos for $12. TWELVE dollars......I gotta take a nap

Talk about shopping, Judy and I just got back from the store, We usually go out of town to buy groceries, they are just way too high here, $6.00 for a regular pack of hot dogs is a bit much. They have gone up down there also but not like here. When is all this craziness going to stop. Gas here is $3.81 and in Atlanta it is $4.19 for regular, just makes me want to spit. Now I need to go take my cotton pickin meds.

Gas here is $1.35 per litre. 3.78 litres per gallon equals 1.35x3.78 = $5.103 per gallon

I need more meds
