Juicing Riddle: Solved

Sunday, April 26, 2015      5 comments

Over the decades I bought various juicers but never seem to be able to stick to it. I would use the new machine for a while, then like a lot of people, I'd quit. So how do I make the habit stick? I think the answer is to do a lot at once, then f... Read more

The Path to Almost Perfect Eggs

Sunday, March 22, 2015      4 comments

So I've noticed that my steel griddle has hot spots from the gas burners and it would brown the eggs. An ideal egg would be cooked white with no browning and a runny yolk. I got an idea of using aluminum sheets to help distribute the heat. Maybe... Read more

Sure, I've eaten plenty of freshly cooked beets, but have never done fresh juice with a juicer before. Since I put in so many carrots, it's hard to tell the differences with beets in there, but the color is much more vibrant and shall I say Red?... Read more

Meeting With The Boss

Thursday, February 05, 2015      6 comments

So I had a one-on-one meeting with the boss this morning. After work, it drawn on me that reading between the lines, the boss was telling me not to worry about job security. Of course, there is no guarantee in life. Maybe he has telegraphed thi... Read more

Dumped The Gym Membership and Bought 3-carat Diamond Instead

Saturday, January 24, 2015      4 comments

The gym called twice. Sorry, No deal. You only called when you want money, but we never get called to come and work out. Since I only used the gym 29 times last year, I'm not spending money on that. Instead.... Now to the diamond. Not for v... Read more
