IN THE FIRING LINE

lucinda E Clarke

For years I’ve been a victim of scribbling mania. It’s a disease that can start in early childhood and stays with you until you are no longer compos mentis and unable to hold a pen or identify the letters on a keyboard.

I am one of the lucky ones who managed to support a family by utilizing this malady and would jump out of bed crying “Yeah, it’s Monday!” On the other hand, public holidays would throw me into a deep depression as I couldn’t get more work done or filming venues were closed.

Yes, I’ve been a lifelong sufferer.

It was not all plain sailing. Often clients would say “This is brilliant … but …” and I knew that the criticism was coming. It was all a learning curve and hopefully, as the years went by, I improved, the negatives declined and I learned to understand that all people…

Just thought you should know…10 Creative Ways to Eat Veggies for Breakfast

The Purple Almond

I’m an intermittent faster, so I don’t eat breakfast. However, I know most people do. So, inspired by my CRON diet article, I decided to repost this article, which highlights ways to eat veggies for breakfast. You really can’t eat too many vegetables. If my research into caloric restriction taught me anything, it’s the importance of eating LOTS of veggies!


HERE’S THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE

If you’re anything like me, you grew up on cold, processed cereal, milk, toast and maybe orange juice as a standard breakfast. On weekends, maybe we had pancakes or eggs, or went out to eat. Fruit and granola with yogurt or oatmeal is also a popular standby for breakfast. Most people don’t think of eating a lettuce salad or heaping bowl of veggies for breakfast.

But, maybe we should. Calorie for calorie, veggies give you the most “bang for your buck.” Generally, you can eat…

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 02/12/2018 – last

Peter's pondering

img_1345-3Helen has been less than 100% for a while, but she still manages to keep us on our toes trying to come up with songs that fit her weekly theme. Well done Helen, and I hope that the bugs disappear in plenty of time for you to have a great Christmas.

SLS this week gives us a theme of “last”. You can see, and hear, all of the great offerings here.

I’ve chosen something completely different this week, based on the fact that I lived in Germany for many years, off and on, during the period 1969 to 1989.

The Germans love to party, and you could not escape the music of James Last. He was immensely popular for many years, and not just in Germany. How he managed to afford the salary bill for all his musicians I have no idea, but he was a consummate…

CNN President Jeff Zucker Would Consider Running for Political Office

Matthews' Blog

By Erin Corbett

CNN President Jeff Zucker said he is “still very
interested in politics” and would consider an eventual run for office,
according to a Monday interview with CNN analyst David Axelrod, the
former chief strategist for former President Barack Obama’s campaigns,
who also served as a senior Obama administration advisor.

“I still harbor somewhere in my gut that I’m still very interested in politics,” Zucker told Axelrod, host of The Axe Files
podcast. “It’s something I would consider,” he continued. The executive
was responding to Axelrod’s question about where the CNN chief sees
himself in five years. “You turned down the opportunity to work for Al
Gore in 2000. You’ve talked in the past about possibly running for
office,” Axelrod said.

The two also discussed President Donald Trump’s
verbal attacks on CNN reporters and accusing the cable news channel of
generating “fake news.”

Elsa said.. Let it go, let it Go! Brain-heart connection

Hey! ItIsMeJacque

“I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless and stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bullshit.”

It comes from a letter of a 26-year-old woman diagnosed with cancer and died at that age. Are you surrounded by people who give you problems, stress, negative feelings, who betrays you, insult you, have no life, and so on and so forth. This is the phrase corresponding also to those who face problems related to the people around them.

Maybe you need to throw away things that causes you sorrow no matter how hard you try to make it better. Because the things we really want but gives us a sigh of extreme resentment are not really meant to be in our…

Biasini Speaks About Stress!!

HorseAddict

Dear Humans, I know you think we horses do not have stress in our lives. You say we have all our meals prepared for us, we have nice stables to live in and paddocks to go out in, the best veterinary care, grooming, carrots and treats. How could we have stress? Ma Leueen tells me Humans have stress about Billz and More Gages and a lot of stuff. But we horses do have stress and I would like to tell you about three things that cause us stress. 

1.Sickness

I want to tell you about my friend Roo Pert. He was in the paddock next to me and we always used to chat and play around. One day, not so long ago, we were playing and then he said he didn’t feel so well. We stopped playing. Then he lay down. “C’mon Roo” I said, “Let’s play some more.”  “I…
