100th Post

Well, well, well. This is my 100th post. Wish I had something really mind-blowing for y'all, but I didn't notice until I saw the 99 posts so far.

We've been showed/iced in for seems like a century. It has been less than a week, and I did make it out of the valley one day. We're all suffering cabin fever, but walking around our little lake and visiting has been fun. We've got great neighbors, very helpful with stuck cars and trucks.

It is, of course, Superball Sunday. I heard on the radio that Americans usually spend some astronomical amount of money (in the billions!!!) for their superball parties. Most of it on junk food snacks. Amazing.

And amusing too. My husband tends to talk to me about football on this kind of day or when there's some other Football Game of Note. I got interested the year the Colts were in the game, but football just ain't my gig. I've never paid enough attention to understand how it works and it usually bores me. A typical female reaction perhaps. Anyway, Michael talks to me about the game, who's who, who does what and why. To be honest, it usually goes in one ear and other the other and I say "Uh huh" or "that's interesting." Or whatever will do the trick to show that I'm listening, sort of.

In lieu of my having prepared anything or thought of something to write about, I'll send you over to Survival Topics. This is a terrific post on survival foraging on the move. I both enjoyed it and it made me think again about eating bugs and worms and such. Cooked in a wild food stew, I can see they might not be so bad. I'd probably want to grind them up first, maybe take off the legs if they have any. :) But this is a fun one and will give you ideas. Check it out!

I'll try to produce a more inspirational post manana. Today I'm sore from shoveling out my car and the arch-enemy post nasal drip is post-nasaling once again. Time to go clean out the sinuses again (1 dropper hydrogen peroxide, pinch salt, pinch baking soda, pinch cayenne powder--put in a 2 oz size medicine bottle and add enough water to make the 2 ounces. Put droppers of the stuff up your nose, one nostril at a time, roll your head around and upside down to get it all over the sinuses and be prepared to suffer the sting and then blow your nose.) Effective, if a bit weird.
Onwards,
HM
