    I bought gas last week and it was about 2.87. I have not been out to see what the prices are this week.

    Yep that was me. :) Be great to hear their version of it when they do it. Maybe they could U Tube it ? Yes connections from Tasmania to New York , now that's a great flight path.


    Here's another version of it using footage from the Japanese sci fi The Mysterians.

    T-Mobile gave me a free pass to watch any MLB I want for the entire season...I don't watch much sports but I kind of like baseball and I think I'll watch a few MLB games since it's now available...Its not restricted to my phone either, I can stream it on my phone, or tablet, or laptop...

    Had a follow-up visit to my general physician this morning, he said I am recovering very well, my vitals and weight is exactly where it all should be, only one minor problem...I guess from being hospitalized I have a 'superficial' (doctor's word used) blood clot in my right leg down near my ankle...He did an ultrasound of my whole leg and everything is clear except that particular spot of redness and inflammation...He said it wasn't serious and gave me 4 weeks of blood thinners and said that will clear it up, and to come back and see him in 4 weeks...

    I've been doing regular stretching and exercises daily, I'll add that to my routine, doing more exercise inside the next couple days with this freezing weather we're having today and tomorrow...Its going to be warm again by Sunday and then I'll get out and do some outside work around the house and more hiking with my dog...

    I bought a box of these lemon bars with almond butter earlier today and oh boy they are sooo delicious, I had to eat a second bar upon finishing off the first bar I tasted and within 30 minutes of finishing off the second bar I found myself eating a third bar lol...

    I literally ate an entire turkey meatloaf and bucket of mashed potatoes last night with another big bucket of frozen yogurt for dessert while we watched a little Lucifer.

    My clothes are still hanging off me post-covid and also number of other unfun things that have been going on. I need to put some weight back on and the eating lamp is lit ! Used to eat 'mass quantities' when training but never to intentionally fill my pants back up. Odd concept :)

    I'm going to try a few of their flavours available at the local grocery...It was a random purchase buying those lemon bars, I just happened to pass them in the store and read the nutritional information which was pretty good so I decided to give them a try...

    What are the ingredients? What kind of substitute sweetener do they have in them and what other chemicals?

    Yeah, if I ever go back to the store and notice it. I am not interested in anything like that, I was just curious. The reason I suspect the sweetener is not sugar is the fact that you ate more than one right in a row. Your body was craving the carbs it expects when it gets something sweet.

    No I ate more than one because of the taste, first time eating and they were delicious and was by conscious choice, not because of any subconscious or body carbs cravings...

    I do that sometimes when I find a new food or snack food that I try, its a conscious choice, believe it or not...
