Local on the 8's from The Weather channel


I used to be such a Weather Channel geek! Jim Cantore with a full head of hair, being referred to as the Italian Stallion by his castmates; female forecasters with growing bellies suddenly appearing with flat tummies and no mention ever of the pregnancy or birth; the cheering in our home when one of them appeared in a place we knew, or taking bets on who would get stuck there for that particular storm (usually Sea Bright, NJ during any hurricane. More than once they stood across from my uncle's former home).

Heck, I was trying to find someone who went to Starbucks so they would buy me the CD of the songs they used on air, but at the time we had no Starbucks near us. Even now we don't have one in our city, but I do know of 2 the next city over, but I doubt very much they carry a 20 year old specialty CD.

TWC changed so much over the years, and now I can barely get a weather report on it because every time I tune in they're airing something like "So You Think You'd Survive" or "Highway Through Hell". Just tell me the temperature!!!

And that's all this 1 hour video is - snippets of local weather reports and Local on the 8's. None of the on-air personalities, just samples of the actual weather reports across the years. Sometimes I play this while at the computer just for background music as I do other things.

Yeah, I'm weird, but you guys already knew that.

It Looks Like A Jungle In There!


That's what my husband said Friday afternoon after all the groceries were put away and some batch cooking was done.


Top shelf: Almond milk, on top of that is a box with "live" Bibb lettuce, asparagus in a cup, bottom container - roasted Brussels sprouts, middle container - hummus, bag on top - broccoli crowns, the next pile is washed and dried romaine, 3 pounds of mushrooms on top of that, an open bag of uncooked kale on the bottom. Ignore my son's bottle of orange soda in the back on the left side.

Second shelf - container of diced red onion, container sliced tomatoes; squirt bottle of Sweet Fire Sauce from the Engine 2 Seven Day Rescue book, behind that assorted jars of pickles and other condiments hubby uses on his sandwiches, a jar of leftover rice and veggies, a few bottles of water in front of a container of nooch, 5 containers of roasted Normandy veggies for VFB, and a package of Ezekial English muffins. The open applesauce is leftover from my son's breakfast he inhaled before he left for work.

Bottom shelf - a few 1-cup containers of cooked brown rice, 2 packages of pre-cut butternut squash (BOGO sale!), behind that is a container of cooked kale, more leftover rice and veg in a jar, this one with nooch sauce added, bottom container is cooked beans, top container is more kale. Behind them are bags on Lundburg rice.

In the left drawer I have vital wheat gluten, garbanzo flour, some ww pastry flour, and a bag of flax seeds, In the right drawer is celery, 2 bags of carrots, some white potatoes, scallions, and the remnants of a bag of celery. Behind the squash is a few bags of soy curls.

And this doesn't count what's in the freezer - over 20 bags f frozen veggies.

I don't know what he's complaining about. The only thing different I bought was the asparagus.

Another Dr. Lisle Q&A Webinar


I haven't had a chance to watch this one yet, either. Had the landlord up doing work in the apartment. I was able to tune in for a minute about half-way through, saw comments were turned off, shook my head in disbelief (How does one have a Q and A without questions?) and planned on watching it sometime today while my husband watches his Netflix rentals.
