How to Butcher a Kangaroo:

NOTE: Kangaroo meat is very lean and high in protein, essential B vitamins,
iron, zinc, omega-3 (an essential nutrient associated with fish),
and omega-6 fatty acids, and is very low in fat (only about 2%)
But the meat also has a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
which has been associated with the build-up of arterial plaque,
and can lead to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes.
67232285_3182547408484770_8951960546475769856_o

Kangaroo was always eaten by the aboriginal Australians, and the
meaty tail, roasted in a pit of hot embers, is considered a delicacy down under.

Kangaroo Meat is illegal in the state of California!

Fried Rice with Minced Beef

Ingredients:
1/2 pound minced beef
iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 bowls white rice, preferably leftover and reheated
2 tsp light soy sauce
salt, to taste
sugar, to taste

Marinade:
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp chicken powder
2/3 tsp sugar
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp shaoxing wine
a pinch of pepper

Method:
Marinate minced beef with marinade for 15 minutes.
Heat oil over medium. Cook beef until 80% done. Set aside.
Add some oil again. Stir in beaten egg. Stir constantly until 60% done. Add rice, preferably reheated beforehand as it’d shorter the cooking time. Quickly stir fry evenly. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste. When the rice is really hot thoroughly, add light soy sauce.
Toss in beef. Continue to cook and combine well. Add shredded lettuce and spring onion until softens. If you’d like to taste the crunchy veggie, then don’t fry too long. Serve hot.

Combination Fried Rice:
First, when it comes to fry rice, we have to use leftover rice because you don’t want any soggy rice. Mixing with all the other vegetables and meat, the rice would be just right, not so dry or soggy.
Second, use as many favorite ingredients as you like. There’s no only one rule to combine ingredients for fried rice. So, be creative and enjoy whatever you like.
Third, the right order is to pan fry eggs, then followed by rice. Many people make the mistake to put in rice first, then pour in whisked eggs. This would make the rice soggy and mushy by absorbing the egg mixture.
Last but not least, don’t stir fry all ingredients with rice in the first place.You have to sauté the meat and vegetables separately. Then combine with the fried rice when it’s nearly done. Simple and easy

Ingredients :
3 bowls leftover rice
1 onion
1 sausage (I used Continental Frankfurt this time)
1 slice ham
6 mushrooms
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
A pinch of black pepper, to your taste
salt, to your taste
sugar, to your taste

Method:
Blanch green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion on medium-heat pan, add in mushrooms until tender. Put in green peas and sauté for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat pan on medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a piece of kitchen towel. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, pour in whisked eggs. When the egg mixture is half-way cooked through, add in leftover rice. Stir well for about 10 minutes on high heat. When all rice is evenly heated up and mixed well with the eggs, add in onion, green peas and mix well. At last, add the sausage and ham. While stirring all ingredients together, generously sprinkle salt, sugar and black pepper. Drizzle the soy sauce all around the rice and toss. Taste it by yourself. When you’re satisfied, it’s done.

Tips:
You can use whatever greens you like, for example capsicum, celery. Other meat, like chicken, shrimp, beef or BBQ pork can be good choice too.
If you preheat the chilled leftover rice in a microwave beforehand, it would shorten the cooking time. Save your energy~
Enjoy your fried rice!

Candied Orange Peel
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy.
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl.

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.

Bon Appetit!

It’s an exclamation!

A salutation for someone about to eat!

It means GOOD APPETITE in French.

ENJOY YOUR MEAL!

Listen and learn how to say Bon Appétit correctly:

NOTE: you shouldn’t be wishing guests “Bon Appétit”…..
the French phrase is actually highly impolite.

Merci! (Thank you in French) Bon Appetit!

Dandelions!

Dandelions!
(Genus: Taraxacum, family: Asteraceae)

10991563_1080154505344448_4063870466938531715_o

🌼💛 Hello, I’m a dandelion.
A lot of people call me a weed but I’m a friend and come to help you!
When you see me, remember that I’m the ONLY one who wants and can grow in that particular spot. Because:
Either the soil is too compact / hard / stomped and I want to loosen it for you with my roots.
Or there is too little calcium in the soil – don’t worry, I will replenish that for you with the dying of my leaves.
Or the soil is too acidic. But I will also improve that for you if you give me the chance.
Or a mixture of the above reasons, of course. 😊
I’m here because your soil needs my help so best you let me grow without disturbing me! When everything is fixed, I will disappear again, I promise!
Are you trying to remove me prematurely with my root? However meticulous you are, I will return 2x as strong! Just until your soil is improved.
You can even tell by my growth at which stage my help is at. If my leaves are flat on the ground then I’m far from ready but if they all reach up then I’m already a long way on my way.
Something completely different is that I am 1 of the first bloomers in spring so I will announce spring / summer for you.
During the day when it’s hot, I open my flowers but in the evening when it cools off I close them again quickly. In fact, if it’s not hot enough during the day I won’t open them at all!
My flowers are the first food for insects after hibernation and unlike most other plants, I have pollen AND nectar, not merely one OR the other! And I am generous with them! 🤪😉
My flowers are even delicious for you people by the way, did you know? I used to be called ′′honey (or gold) of the poor′′ because my flowers are so sweet in e.g. jam, sauce or salad! The internet is full of recipes – check them out.
But wait until the end of May or later before you start picking and even then, don’t pick everything yet! The biodiversity and bees will be very grateful!

Dandelions are an herb that is native to Europe.
Dandelions can be found in mild climates
in temperate regions across the Northern Hemisphere.

Taraxacum officinale is the most common species.
The common dandelion is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant.
The scientific study of the genus is known as taraxacology.

The English name comes from the French dent de lion  (lion’s tooth) 
referring to the shape the leaves.

Dandelions have medicinal properties used in traditional herbal medicine 

462408aa8e1dd9bd9b32d2cebbaf4dbd
Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (November 10, 1879 – December 5, 1931)
was an American Poet known as “The Prarie Troubadour”

original-1209272-4

“There’s starting to be a lot more argument that they should be kept because of what they can do for pollinators. Ecologically they are becoming very important as a food source for domestic and wild species of bees, particularly in early spring because they grow so soon. Butterflies and moths also feed on them as a source of sugar, and some species of birds feed on dandelion seeds”
– Ken Willis, University of Alberta Botanic Garden Head of Horticulture

Dandelions are edible and high in nutritional value (vitamins, minerals and fiber).
All parts of the plant (flower, leaf, stem, and roots) can be eaten cooked or raw.
The roots can be dried, ground, and used to make tea.
Dandelions are available as packaged herbal supplements
(capsules, extracts, oils, and tinctures).
Dandelions contain high levels of the antioxidant beta-carotene and polyphenols.

97496212_10217619235212436_7507247502173667328_n

Other Potential Health Benefits from Dandelions:
Reduce cholesterol
Regulate blood sugar
Reduce inflammation
Lower blood pressure
Aid weight loss
Reduce cancer risk
Boost the immune system
Helps relieve mild constipation

Five ways to consume Dandelions:
  1. Dandelion green salad
  2. Sauteed Dandelion greens (cooking eliminates some of the bitter taste) 
  3. Dandelion fritters
  4. Baking with Dandelion petals
  5. Dandelion root tea (and coffee substitute)

Dandelion tea acts as a diuretic and increases urine output.
It has also been used to improve appetite and soothe minor digestive ailments.

Dandelions have low toxicity and are safe for most people.

WARNING! Dandelion can cause an allergic reaction!
People with allergies to other plants like ragweed may also be allergic to Dandelions.
And people with sensitive skin may experience contact dermatitis (a rash or hives).
Other side effects include stomach discomfort, diarrhea, and/or heartburn

WARNING! Dandelions may interact badly with some medications (especially diuretics and antibiotics)! If using prescription medications, consult a healthcare provider before using Dandelions.

Trump FAILED. Pence FAILED. Everyone in the Trump Administration FAILED.
THEY CAUSED THIS. POLITICS OF WEARING A MASK CAUSED THIS.
HYDROXYCLORAQUINE CAUSED THIS! (Trump’s “PUMP AND DUMP” Con)
HERD IMMUNITY CAUSED THIS! FAILURE TO TEST AND TRACK CAUSED THIS!
THERE NEVER WAS A FEDERAL PLAN!
THEY FAILED AT EVERY STAGE WITH PPE AND SUPPLIES!
THEY HELD “SUPER-SPREADER” RALLIES AND WHITE HOUSE PARTIES!
They killed Herman Cain. They tried to expose Joe Biden at the Presidential Debate.
They infected The White House and the Secret Service, the Military and the Congress.
And then they held an Insurrection with a Rally, a Parade, and an Attack on the US Capitol.
TRUMP TRIED TO MURDER THE VICE-PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS!
He wanted the mob to kill his political enemies, and any one else who was there.

He wanted to declare Martial Law

TRUMP FAILED.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN!
10:00am: “HAIL TO THE CHIEF!”
Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States.

Kamala Harris is Vice-President of the United States.
Trump is now a private citizen again and can now be arrested for GENOCIDE,
Crimes Against Humanity, Crimes Against Children, Felony Murder,
Treason, Sedition, Rape, Fraud, Wire Fraud, Tax Evasion, Conspiracy
and many other crimes. ARREST! PROSECUTE! AND EXECUTE!
400000+ DEAD AMERICANS DEMAND JUSTICE! TRUMP KILLED THEM!

117445490_10159931738499256_1815587112215985738_o

We just put the American Flag out in front of the house!
It really is a new day in America. WE ARE FREE! FREE AT LAST! FREE FROM TRUMP!
Four years of crime. Four years of treason. Four years of racism, anti-semitism and hate.
Four years of violence against US Citizens by law enforcement and the government.
WE CAN CELEBRATE THE INAUGURATION OF JOE BIDEN TODAY!
TOMORROW WE MUST BEGIN THE PURGE OF EVERY TRUMP APPOINTEE!
Every Trump hire, every Trump stooge, every Trump staffer, every Trump supporter!
THEY CANNOT BE TRUSTED! EVERYTHING TRUMP TOUCHED IS CORRUPTED!

11:15am: Well it’s been a busy morning in Washington DC!
Biden&Co went to church, then went to The US Capitol, and they got inaugurated,
They did a “drive-by” review of the National Guard troops on the way to Arlington Cemetery.
The Inauguration Ceremony was beautiful and a “take back” of the United States!
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office.
(Joe Biden used his family bible again)
Garth Brooks sang “Amazing Grace”, and there was an opening prayer,
Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem (and Mike Pence had to watch)
Joe Biden made a well crafted speech.
And J-Lo (Jennifer Lopez) sang.
Inaugural Poet (22 year old) Amanda Gorman stole the show
with her poem, “The Hill We Climb”.

FUN FACT: 
EsMR83CXYAUNoR1

They moved inside.
The passing of the Nuclear “Football” was immediate and done behind closed doors.
Gifts were given, and speeches were made inside the US Capitol.
Beautiful etched vases from Lennox Crystal (made in USA) were gifted
to the new President and Vice-President. Joe Biden signed an Executive Order. 

141161585_1840084319472245_8997470955141433566_n

Then there was a motorcade through Washington, past National Guardsmen lining the streets and saluting, all the way to Arlington, Virginia. Now Presidents Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, Biden  and their wives and Vice-President Harris and her husband (“the Second Gentleman”) are all together laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery.
Hearing the National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, 
and watching them be real leaders for the Nation is bringing tears to our eyes.
And now they’re playing “Taps” for all the fallen and there are flags flying on every grave.
A Moment of Silence and Silent Prayer, and a Presidential Photo Op.
And the Presidential Couples are going up the steps and inside General Robert E. Lee’s old house to pay respects, and say goodbye to each other. (pause in the ceremony)
Biden and Harris will motorcade in a “virtual parade to The White House. Biden will sign many Executive Orders, and start the business of repairing the damage that Trump, the GOP Traitors, and Trump’s criminal associates have caused to our great country.

Vice-President Kamala Harris is the first African-American, first Asian-American and first Woman to hold this Federal Office! And Joe Biden is the oldest President to hold office. 

12:15pm: Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We made some food and another cup of espresso. 
The Presidential motorcade is “parading” to The White House now.
Trump wanted a “military sendoff”, does this count?
Just think of how much it is costing for all this SECURITY.
25000 National Guardsmen from across the country.
Gas, food, lodging, and other services for the military and support personnel.
Law Enforcement and Investigation. They vetted the National Guardsmen.
Maximum protection. Don’t forget the air cover provided by the Air Force.
YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK (or is it just being wasted?)

And the Biden family is out of the limousine and walking to The White House now.
MAXIMUM SECURITY! The streets are empty except for military and law enforcement.
They’re parading past the media, and Joe went and fist-bumped someone.
And he said hello DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. Hello to some other people.
Joe Biden has entered The White House grounds and is walking up the driveway.
Presidential Marching Band and many flags – each state and territory.
Lots of media of course. Standing at the West Wing steps and waving.
Band playing “Hail to the Chief” and “G-d Bless America” (now we’re really crying)
And Joe hugs his wife and the First Family enters The White House.
(yes, there has been a “deep-cleaning” done after the last occupant was removed)

THE INAUGURAL PARADE on CNN:
“Parade Across America” with John Stewart, the dancing TikTok Doc,
High Country Cloggers, Chinese American Community Center in Delaware, 
What’s your vision for America? Heroes Next Door, Mariachi Joya from Las Vegas High School perform together virtually, “Felicidades!”  Kamala Harris and her husband enter The White House (and we’re crying again), Wheelchair bound athletes from the Ryan Martin Foundation passing the ball, Hawaiian Oil Chant from Hawaii, TAPS – Military Loss Survivors, USMC Silent Drill Platoon – “Semper Fi!”, the Puerto Rico Royalty Winterguard perform, the TikTok Doc, and many more Americans of all races and religions celebrating into the afternoon.

VP Kamala Harris and the Second Gentleman are getting ready to walk down the street.
Pausing for the Security Assessment, and they are out if the limo, greeting the family on the street, and now walking to The White House and her new office in the Old Executive Building. 

EVERYONE, all day long, at every event, is wearing a mask.

Remember Trump said the stock market would crash if Biden was elected?
Stocks just hit a historic all-time high today as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are inaugurated.

BIDEN to his staff:
“If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treating another colleague with disrespect, talking down to someone, I will fire you on the spot. On the spot. No ifs ands or buts.”

We woke up and drank an espresso and ate a couple cookies.

President Joe Biden fired attorney Peter Robb, a Trump appointee and stooge,
after he refused to resign as National Labor Relations Board general counsel.

The Washington Post’s Trump fact-checkers say Trump made 30573 false or misleading claims in four years. That’s approximately twenty per day.

“Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin”
– General Barry R. McCaffrey (ret.), March 16, 2018 on Twitter

Okay, tweeting “Heads Will Roll! Purge the Trump stooges!” is probably not allowed.
We didn’t even bother to appeal it. We need a forced Twitter break!
We just removed the tweet, started the “Timeout Clock” and shut the window.

“A BIG BAG OF SICK”
We are working our way through it with two boxes of Kleenex.

Yes, we got our Flu Shot this year.
And now we are SICK with a Cold to start the new year.

We are at HOME. Being SICK = No Fun!
We stayed in on New Years Eve because we weren’t feeling well.

It starts in the throat, then moves to the head and nose….
SO CONGESTED! Want to sleep but can’t because we are so congested.

Running nose, watering eyes, headache, chills and sweats…
And there’s a mean cough and lots of phlegm and mucus too.

Drinking juice, water and tea,
And the chicken soup was good.

We slept and when we woke up the cold was pretty much gone. And you know you are really sick when you don’t want to finish the sushi or bacon in front of you.



 

 

 

A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!

TWO WEEKS AGO:

JUNE 19, 2017 2:00am
A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!
(Not the kind of traveling you want to do)

So how’s your Sunday night going? We had a a fun Father’s Day BBQ Party and then I fell asleep early around 10pm. I woke up at midnight and went online and then did some other late night work in the home office. Around 1:30am I felt a strange (not normal) pain in my chest and 10 minutes later it hadn’t gone away. I took a Bayer aspirin and then had to make a serious decision about my health.

17309131_1852391144787443_1747713814228109722_n

Chest pain (not normal) so a trip to the ER: better safe than dead.
Didn’t want to take any chance that it might be something very serious, so we made the call and got dressed, and drove over to the hospital.

The drive over was excruciating and there was a lot of anxiety and stress along the way.

Not exactly Dr. Kubler-Ross’ “Anger, Denial, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance”, but there was a little bit of soul-searching and “what if?” thinking in that 20 minute car ride.

NOTE: No, I did not drive myself to the hospital. I was lucky enough to have someone available at 1:30 in the morning to drive me to the ER. BIG Thanks for the ride! And they know who they are! I’m also very grateful to have pretty good medical coverage. THANKS OBAMA!

So, the ER Waiting Room was not very busy on Sunday night. There were some other people waiting as I checked in, most noticeably a woman who interupted the guy checking me in because a catheter was stuck and she had to go!

Medical card, ID and method of payment please? My health insurance will cover most of the costs, but there was a big deductible/co-payment required and most likely another bill later. I was taken into a small exam room for an EKG and Blood Pressure/vital sign evaluation (with the door open, because there was only one tech on duty at ER Reception), given my ID wristband, and then I was returned to the Waiting Room.

I was then called by a nurse and led into the working area of the ER. There wasn’t a clean room, so she had me lay on a cart in the hall, and then she turned me over to another nurse and went on dinner break. The second nurse stuck an IV needle in my arm and drew blood for testing. The ER Doctor on duty came and evaluated me, asked me questions, got information from my computerized files and decided which tests to run.

19665568_1875383955821495_2342670075677988596_n

2:15am (see the picture above) Emergency Room at the hospital, evaluated and laying on a gurney cart in the hallway waiting for the exam room to be cleaned. Waiting for test results. My EKG and vitals are ok, but I’m still having the chest pain. The second nurse left me laying on the gurney cart in the hall and when the first nurse came back from her dinner break, she apologized and finally moved me to a clean room about a half hour later

19732363_1875384029154821_7054587357051182136_n

After a short rolling trip, I moved from the gurney cart to a bed in a private ER exam room. They put on the automatic Blood Pressure machine and vital signs monitor, put me on an IV drip, gave me some drugs and an oxygen feed while I waited for test results.

3:16am In a room now being monitored…
waiting for the shift change and X-rays. vital signs good

NOTE: Modern Medicine and Technology is amazing! No need to go to the X-ray room, the machine and the technician come right to you! The guy wheeled in a portable X-ray cart and took a chest shot without me having to get up and/or move.

Everything was fine. All my vital signs and both EKGs were normal, the X-ray and the tests didn’t show anything to worry about. I was able to post to facebook and called my ride and sent them home, knowing it would be hours while the enzyme test was run.

The Doctor on Duty came back and followed up and then I waited. Another Nurse Technician came in and took more blood and gave me some more drugs intravenously. The pain in my chest finally began to go away.

So I used my iPhone to keep busy, but reception was terrible.
So I just deleted a bunch of emails and then tried to rest.

I got a bed (that wasn’t plugged in) when they moved me to the private exam room. It was just really uncomfortable with the IV in one arm and the automatic BP cuff on the other. Also the vital sign monitor was clamped to my index finger and there was a cable attached and it was attached to a digital display (that would “ping” if and when my heart rate dropped). And every so often, the automatic BP cuff would inflate around my arm to the point of almost pain just to remind me that I was .

Don’t like hospitals and waiting sucks. Tried to sleep, but there was too much noise. Finally told them I just wanted to go home. I’m supposed to do a “stress test” but everything else was pretty normal. No explanation for the chest pain, so I’m going home because everything here got really busy after 7am

 

6+ hours and I just want to go home now. No news is good news I guess. They’re running more tests and I’m just getting annoyed with the machine that goes “ping”

The Machine that goes “PING!”

That thing sucks! It was the worst part of the visit.

Everything was okay (with just a few exceptions) until the 7am shift and I was handling it really well. After the shift change, they got busy and had a critical patient in another room, so everything else (like the other patients) got lower priority for attention.

I went home because I wanted to and because it was getting too stressful at the ER. I wanted to rest but the heart monitor kept beeping, there was too much noise in the hall, and it was really uncomfortable laying on the gurney with the IV in one arm, the automatic blood pressure cuff on the other and the heart rate monitor taped to my index finger. Decided I can follow up later with the stress test.

They gave me the bill, took my credit card payment and also made me sign a “released against Doctor’s order” waiver. My ride came and picked me up and drove me home.

11:22am

Home again. Feeling okay. After 8 hours in the ER, the next day is a beautiful day!

Thanks again everyone! All the tests came back clean and we are feeling fine. We didn’t want to chance whatever it was that was causing the pain, so we made a trip to the ER to be safe. We are so lucky to be able to get good urgent care! Don’t mess around and get checked out if you’re having a health problem!

NOTE: The royal “we” as in Me (and my shadow)

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks to everyone for your concern, kind thoughts, good advice and words of wisdom! I am home and I feel okay. I had some chest pain at 1:30am this morning and had to go and get checked out (better to be safe). So 9 hours, 2 EKGs, a little medication and a chest x-ray later, we are a huge co-pay poorer and everything appears fine. My vital signs are excellent and nothing appears to be wrong. Big thanks to all the folks (Doctors, nurses, techs and staff) at the emergency room and special thanks goes out (to you know who you are) for getting me there and picking me up! So, all is well and we will be “takin’ easy for all you sinners” today.

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks Again! Came home and went to bed, woke up and had some food, feel fine with just a little residual pain and a slight headache. Was outside with the dogs for a little bit, but it’s too hot for humans (and pups) again today in the valley…. and it’s only Monday.

Glad to be alive.
Thinking of all my friends with serious health problems!
BE WELL! If you have a health problem, SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY!
