I was just reading a posting from Ramblings from Retirement which I just re-posted below. So many things struck home. His comment about how tea came in one flavour, tea flavour. My favorite was some of the difficulties in connecting his new type of TV to his system.
My favorite tea is now a white tea called Buddha’s blend. A series of different flavours combined with things that were never considered tea in the past.
I realized that life now comes with a lot more in the way of instructions than it ever did before. That level of complexity appears to be necessary in order to achieve this retiring life of simplicity we are now aiming for. Thoreau said ‘simplify, simplify, but I don’t think we can get there from here anymore.
We just came back from our favorite Indian restaurant here in Winnipeg. My favorite deserts are the gulab jamum.
Here, milk and cheese solids are prepared by heating milk till the water content has evaporated. The remaining milk solids, known as khoya are kneaded into a dough, with a small amount of flour. They are shaped into small heavenly balls and deep-fried in oil or ghee till they get to a golden brown color. The fried balls are then soaked in a light sugar syrup and flavored with green cardamon.
Rare is the time that I eat so much that I begin to hate myself. But after finishing a few gulab jamun, I began hating the happy couple beside us.
We met up with a couple of long-time friends. Not old friends. Not in their minds. She had retired last year and a work acquaintance asked her what it like going from 60 to 0? I am surprised my friend did not give the person a bit of smack upside of the head. She only did that figuratively.
When we retire, we still go the speed limit, or perhaps a bit faster. We are just on a nicer, less crowded highway.
Debridement is the medical removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue. Removal may be surgical, mechanical, chemical, autolytic, and by maggot therapy. Wikipedia
I am not completely sure why when I saw this headline, the concept of debridement immmediately leapt to mind.
Perhaps its the slightly ironic comparison of debridement, the removal of damaged meat tissue, and the Beyond Meat headline, which is the removal of a damaged non-meat product from the menu.
When I go to Tims, the last thing that comes to mind is a meat product, or a non-meat product.
Apple fritters or death. Actually, a box of apple fritters sort of guarantees the latter, later.
