In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

Rough Night…

Looks like I am going to have to get scheduled for an MRI. I need to verify that my brain tumor is still under control. I fought a year plus long battle against a brain tumor many years ago and it is time to see if all is good. Lets hope…

Got home from walking and my blood sugar is at 5.8 mmol/l, that is perfect and I am very thankful. I walked almost 10,000 steps, ate at Globus and enjoyed life, watching the mothers dragging the kids to school by sled, feet and literal dragging them. It was -20 when I got up and for some reasons some kids get grouchy at this temperature! 😉

Svetochka said someone told her that workers had been stolen from us outer cities and taken to Moscow to clean up the big city yesterday. I kind of disagreed and yet today I am seeing a doubling of the workers in our city, cleaning up everything. So I admit she was right. I guess it makes sense? Moscow is the hub of Russia and it has been snowing like crazy. Unless you live up north like Moscow is, you can not fathom about what to do with enough snow to equivalence to a blanket 10 feet deep over the whole city and it never, but never goes away. Unless you scoop it up and truck it away. It has to go somewhere and it never melts…

This is what they do…

Moscow, Russia Just Melts the Snow!

It is strange to say it is -20 and you can tell it is spring. -20 in March is so much different than -20 in January. Seriously it is…


I am going to talk about diabetes again…

I cannot say enough. Too many people loose limbs to the disease and there is no reason except, not caring enough about yourself. I have walked off over three kilos in the last few weeks. I have cut my sugar pills (as I call them) and try to eat proper. One thing to get under control is pasta, rice, potatoes and or those wonderful and delicious starchy treats of life. I would take an order of fried potatoes any day over a candy bar, but the repercussions of doing so is detrimental to my health. You are no different than I am and you gotta stop those creamy mash potatoes with gravely on top of them. Also stop eating bread. It will kill you, if you are diabetic like I am…

Eat starches in very modest moderation. That order of french fries will kick your ass for days…


Try Tofu… (I bought a pack today!)

I can eat it at supper and not wake up with that diabetic coma feeling…


Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. – Buddha

Now that is worth thinking about….hard to do for someone like me…

Have a nice day…
