As you are aware, I have been on a diet. In 4.5 weeks, I have lost 20 pounds. The diet is Nutrisystem. It obviously works. It should. I am taking in less than 1,000 calories a day.
The food comes prepackaged. One of the items is a mix for pancakes. Total calories 140. I made the pancakes this morning. The mix resulted in four pancakes, each two inches in diameter.
I left them in the frying pan on the stove cooking. Returned to my computer which is about five feet from the stove. I work with the doors to the ocean open behind me.
After a while, I started to smell something burning. Who is cooking out at this hour of the morning, I thought. I kept working. The smell became more pronounced. Finally, it dawned on me! The pancakes! Burned to a crisp. Stuck hard to the pan.
A bad start to the day. Food is the most important thing when a person is dieting.
The Key West Lou Legal Hour was yesterday morning. Just me and Krystal. No Jenna. Jenna went back home to Indiana for Christmas. She was supposed to leave Wednesday. The snow storm hit. The storm continued through thursday. Today is the first day she could fly out.
Krystal and I made do. Though the inconvenience was more on her shoulders than mine.
The show went well. I was surprised what interested viewers the most. I thought it would have been the fiscal cliff. Instead, it was Germany from various perspectives.
I discussed four German related items. The Neo-Nazi party in Greece which is now Greece’s third largest political party, a statue of Hitler recently placed in front of the Warsaw Ghetto, Germany in effect now deporting its elderly to Eastern Europe and Asian nursing and assisted care homes, and a German cabinet minister who insists God is a woman.
After the show, I walked. Since it was warm, I walked inside Home Depot. Comfortably air conditioned.
I would term myself a floor walker at Home Depot. Many think I work there. I am constantly asked questions like where is this or that, what do I need to do a particuar job, etc. Me, who never even owned a screwdriver his whole life!
Home Depot takes care of its property. Sometime in the last 48 hours, the floors were polished. They sparkled.
I wrote next week’s column for KONK Life. Titled Term Limits. The thrust was that it is not that easy to invoke term limits on our Senators and Congressman. People should be aware. Term limits might not be the solution.
KONK Life hits the streets wednesday. Read the article. It is an eye opener.
Key West weather continues to be excellent. We are blessed!
Enjoy your day!
