A Couple of Calories Today

With all the talk and articles about the calories in drinks and food I am not too sure about what are they all trying to tell me……… A surmounting amount of questions…… and the worries never stop…OMG

With the fashionable coffee drinks of the season with the trillions of calories that will probably make me fall over just looking at it. I wonder why everyone is up in arms about the calories…… no one is forcing me to drink those beverages, and I can choose what I like to drink and if I want one of those trillion calorie drinks then I am simply going to drink it; whether it is healthy for me or not.

The same holds true for the food we eat ….. Trillions of calories in everything and nothing is healthy…. One week this and the next week that …. I just can’t seem to keep up with all these calories loaded foods let alone the money I would have to spend each week changing my diet to keep-up with the latest fad…. This is all too mind boggling for me.

Plus, to top it off, I am still alive and managing without all those reminders that I had a piece of toast with butter or I ate 2 eggs for breakfast and downed it with a couple of cups of coffee and to make things worse had a glass of orange juice. Sugar in the orange juice, cholesterol in the eggs and butter and fat in the butter, oh and not to forget the caffeine in my coffee and my day has just started….

Then there is lunch with its dangers lingering somewhere in the shadows of my life. I think I’ll go for a salad. Is it healthy????? Maybe or maybe not…. With no salad dressing I am on the safe side or maybe just a honeymoon salad then I know for sure I am eating healthy, and a glass of water to down the bland tasting leaves of the salad. I feel like I am the picture of health now!!

But there is the afternoon coffee-break there just tempting me to drink one of those flavorful beverages with only a trillion calories ….. I want one but all the articles say they are bad for me. I stare through the window of the coffee shop admiring all those people who are sitting there enjoying themselves without a care in the world and no thoughts about the trillion calories either…. Tears swell in my eyes as trillions of little calories prance through my brain and they get the best of me and I go inside and order and enjoy a trillion calories and who cares, because it is only winter once a year and I need to enjoy myself sometimes and do all those things that the articles try to make me worry about.

No worries here and of those trillions of calories….. Well hey, Life is like that and everyone has to make up their own minds!

35 Times

It is said that people check their social networks 35 times a day…. Wow and when do you have time to work or do anything else; I ask????

I think it seems like these things are taking over people lives. I calculated what that would amount too:
35 x 7 = 245 times a week x 52 weeks = 12,740 time a year someone checks out their social network standing…. Any time for a life????

I guess there is no time for anything else like always… wherever you are to look at your mobile device and see what others are doing or to post that you may be sitting on a bus or the likes. I have really noticed that no one is talking to each other anymore and is totally dependent on their cell phone or the likes. Is it true that these devices are making mankind dumb and that people don’t know how to socialize anymore because of them and that before you make one step you have to go online to see if there is anything written about what you want to do before you do it….
Don’t want to be seen as un-cool in my social group because I didn’t check it out first before I did something….
Whatever happened to I’ll take a chance and do something.. like go to a restaurant before checking out what others said and besides that… Do I like what you like??? Maybe not and so how can things you read be true than???? Or the rating everything.. I read that lots of people do it for the money or vouchers that they can get… So again where is the truth???

Sorry got a bit side tracked from 35 times…. Ok, if that is so when do you have time for anything??? You get up in the morning check online, maybe post you’re going to take a shower “ IMPORTANT”.. After that breakfast and so on throughout the day…. And to be honest I am not the least bit interested in that and maybe many other people feel that way too!

I bet if these people went off-line for a couple of days they would find out who their real friends are and if anyone really contacted them( call/ pop by in person) then they would know… I have some real friends and if no one contacted them… then bad luck… no friends.

I ask sometimes where is this all leading us too?? Any answers out there… I’m off line

Maple syrup goes astray

LEBEN UND GEDANKEN

Bad news for lovers of real maple syrup! I read somewhere in the world that thieves have stolen thousands of liters of maple syrup. How can anyone in their right mind do such a horrific thing so that all the maple syrup lovers of the world could possible not have enough maple syrup for their pancakes or French toast? Bring back that syrup!!!!!

This really makes me feel bad because I love maple syrup and don’t want to do without the real thing. Artificial syrup just doesn’t cut the cake and tastes terrible if you ask me. I wonder what those thieves are going to do with all that syrup. Have a giant pancake party and invite the world or are they planning on doing something else with it???

It’s a really sad day when those things happen were people steel our beloved maple syrup. Why those guys could just…

Love

I think it is the most wonderful thing in the world and you don’t need Valentine ’s Day to show that you love someone.
You can do all sorts of things to surprise the one you love with such simple things like breakfast in bed or a voucher for a massage from you, or simply being together with one another and enjoying each other’s company.

Love has many forms; it really isn’t just one thing. Love is holding hands and listening to each other while one of you is speaking plus many more things make one love another person. Love can be painful when you have an argument with the person you love or they are ill and you really cannot help them. But somehow our inner strength brings us to still love the other person.

Sometimes the person you love says things that can hurt you and make you feel sad but then maybe if you speak to each other you can overcome the problem at hand.

The joy when two people see each other after a long period of time. Those are the wonderful things about life that’s what makes-up love.

Love is such a wonderful thing!
