We can breath a little easier now. At least Planned Parenthood, Roe vs Wade, and Social Security will stay in effect for the next four years. I don't know that the world will survive, what with the increasingly severe weather, but at least we won't have to hear about 'legitimate rape' any more.

It amazes me that anyone can believe that someone can hold a position in higher levels of government without being completely and thoroughly vetted by the FBI, NSA, and a host of other investigatory services, before being permitted to hold office...

Well, now that the election is over, we can sit back and listen to the other side wail and moan for a few weeks. Me? I'm gonna drink a toast of Mango lassi to the success of another four years.

Yep, the news is good this morning. Grated beetroot? Not so sure about that!

Black coffee in my cup. It's a cold and misty-moisty morning here.

Nothing in my cup at the moment, but I thought I'd mention that I've often eaten cooked grated beetroot with great pleasure....



... as one ingredient of a chocolate cake.

Ah..chocolate-cake. That would be something!
I am dieting a little, as I stuffed myself with chocolate, M&M's, Malteser's and the likes last sunday, during the new James Bond film Skyfall, which was excellent!

And, like Betty: not so sure about the beetroot.

A non-political good morning to everyone. Wherever birthed.

Meanwhile, my Anniversary Breakfast Blend is gone, so I'm drinking Diet Coke right now. Bad.

And I just found out this contract is finishing up the end of the month. Sigh. It's been a pleasure working with this team (and this boss), and I HATE having to go find more work. Grump/grumble.

Heck with it, I'm taking the afternoon off, and I'll start with a cup of tea. Okayti Estate First Flush Darjeeling. Very aromatic, and a light liquor with strong floral notes. Finishes with a bit of tannin in the back of the mouth. All in all, exactly what I'd expect out of a First Flush Darjeeling, but unfortunately nothing particularly special. Eminently drinkable, but not special.

I'm walkin' Yes indeed, I'm talkin' 'bout you and me,
I'm hopin' That you'll come back to me, yeah, yeah
I'm lonely Yes I can be, I'm waitin' For your company,
I'm hopin' That you'll come back to me
What you gonna do when the well runs dry? You gonna run away and hide I'm gonna run right by your side For you pretty baby I'll even die
I'm walkin' Yes indeed I'm talkin'
'bout you and me, I'm hopin' That you'll come back to me

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqs5gkyH930 )

I'm REALLY getting into this walking stuff! I'm even parking on the far side of parking lots just so that I have to do more walking when I'm doing chores requiring my bike!! It's nuts!

Good morning, everyone! Taylors of Harrogate's "English Breakfast" tea this morning, and a plate of olives, crab legs, and broccoli for breakfast. Then it's off for a fast 5k around the neighborhood. I've been asked to teach a weekly English Conversation Group for senior citizens being run by the local city Education board, and that starts this afternoon. One hour a week of just chatting, so very little prep work for me, and I always enjoy these sorts of classes. I learn so much, especially about Japanese culture and new places to go sight-seeing!

Then tonight, we are going into Kyoto for our Cha-no-yu tea ceremony with a Grand Master. That should be spectacular! We're planning to spend an hour meditating in one of the temple gardens near the Master's tea room before we go, just to shed some of the 'speed' of daily living before we go for the ceremony.

By the way, for those who have been curious about my references to Osaka and Kyoto, both are prefectures (think: States) and also both are cities. Just like "New York." My condo sits right on the street that forms the political/geographical border for the prefectures. One side of the street is Kyoto Prefecture, the other side of the street is Osaka Prefecture. When I say that I'm going to 'Osaka' or 'Kyoto,' I'm referring to the 'downtown' areas of those cities, (that I've marked with a red dot) both of which are about 25km from where I live.

Hot coffee and a cracker with humus.

Strange happenings: all my PDF's disappeared from my Macbook; iBooks and PDF's in my public and other folders in Dropbox.***^*^*** as on my travelblog.
Adobe doesn't seem to work and time- machine?
Well, well. i'll see about it in the evening as I have to be off to work in the Archives, on my bike.
Have to redo them all, I fear.
