Now I've been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh I've been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be, some day it's going to come

Good morning, everyone! Happy 2nd Month! Could we please change the spelling though? Make it 'FebUary?' Think how many more children would pass spelling tests.

Tea this morning is Ahmad's "English Breakfast" blend, to wet down the tortillas, frijoles, and fried polenta. English tea, Mexican food, eaten in a Japanese house, by an American. How International is that!

You can always do what my father (an Oral Surgeon) did to disuade my brother and me from drinking carbonated soft drinks;
Fill a large glass with ANY carbonated, 'flavored' soft drink (other than club soda or tonic water.) Drop in a rusty nail and let it sit for a couple of weeks, letting your daughter see it 'before' and 'after.' I guarantee you this will slow her down... The heavily sugared drinks do even more damage. We used to use Coca Cola to remove rust from chrome bike parts!

One more mug of tea, then it's off for a long walk. I've been getting to sedentary lately!
