Spud, perfect additions to the salad. My cousin's wife must weigh 300 pounds. Every day a recipe comes from her that is just dripping with icing or heavy sauces or deep fried treasures. I decided that when I receive one of her recipes I am going to send her a photo and recipe of one of my favorites, even if I have to use a stock photo.

Chris, I know what you mean about accumulating teaching material. I had boxes and boxes that I kept for a couple of years after I retired and then sent them to the dump. 

It sounds as though you love teaching as much as I did. Being a teacher with a strong commitment to students does take its toll. I enjoy reading about your experiences ... kind of like being with you as you impart information and skills that will make differences in their lives.

I would add some garbanzo beans to Joan's salad, and maybe some bacon bits.

Earthquakes and tunnels is a scary combination for me too, Joan. But here in the mud it's reasonably safe.

And thanks, I'm fine today. My workload is still too heavy, so I expect the next migraine attack on Thursday, because that's my day off. And if the weekend is very busy, another one on Monday. Losing all that time makes me only work harder on the other days.... but I try to skip corners and slow down. Next week I get a new group to teach! I'm looking forward to that, and it won't be very busy, because by now I have a big stack of teaching material ready.

Chris, how are you feeling? Did the chili help with ending the migraine?

I still have claustrophobia about tunnels, especially the ones that go under water. What if the earth shakes while I am down in that tunnel/grave? I hope the engineers planned for that. Especially in Korea. That is a shaky part of the Earth.

Joan, that salad looks good.  I would add a little raspberry vinaigrette and I'm good to go.

Hey, yesterday I pulled out of an old snow drift some buried collard greens. Boiled with olive oil and vinegar, they were delicious!

Be sure to read my recent blog on fat.

With so many of these fat and sugar pictures, I offer up a rebuttal

If you want one of these, you'll have to go the the Philippines.

Well, they didn't come by today...too windy.  Didn't want to mess up their "dos" I guess.  All I'm going to do if they make another attempt, is make a quick call to the police, and watch.  If the officer who was here before asks me if I want to press charges, even though it's "only" a misdemeanor, I will say "Throw the book (pamphlet?) at them.

I also had a long talk with a friend who has been "working the system" for years, and she made some good, sensible, legal getting one meal a day from the Burbank version of Meals on Wheels, and asking what (if any) local ophthalmologists do exams on semi-diabetic seniors, since eye exams aren't covered bt Medicareless...unless you have cataracts.  Maybe I do...I haven't seen an eye doctor in more than 10 years....and they told me I had some tiny incipient cataracts.

Actually, Deborah threatened to come down here from Tacoma (WITH her XLge boyfriend) and beat the crap out of me if I don't start taking better care of myself.  She was serious.

I found the Ugly Cake web site and just shook my head at the CakeWrecks.  If I had turned out a mess like some of those, I would have chopped them to bits before I allowed anyone to photograph them.
