Good 23º everything is frozen morning. Everything! Grass, hummer feeder, dog's water, trees................................
Here is a quick video of a barricaded suspect in Santa Monica.... taken down the stairs by an LASD K9. WHATTA dog!!!!! Love him!
Yesterday was the Oscars. They pomp and circumstance started at 2pm and went on til 10:30pm! Really? They need over 8 hours to pat themselves on the back? The Glen Campbell song Tim McGraw sang made me cry. Those actors who died ... Rod Taylor, James Garner, Lauren Bacall, Robin Williams, Mickey Rooney, James Shigeta, Louis Jordan, Richard Attenborough, and Eli Wallach tribute was nice, but they left out Joan Rivers! The speeches were filled with political activism. Every time the camera was on Michael Keaton he was chewing gum with his mouth open! RUDE. Yes, Jeannie, Gaga's voice is good, but the tattoos and the makeup and the dress didn't impress me. Don't get me started on Okra! Neil Patrick Harris is talented alright, but wearing his tighty-whiteys in front of everyone? PULEEEEESE! And the "African American Film Critics Film Association" threw an Oscar party! What? Does everything have to be racial???? I am really surprised OVamit's face didn't appear on a screen giving a speech! The one movie everyone I know saw and liked was American Sniper and it didn't get anything! Remember, Hollyweird is a GAME!
So.... when I wear my slippers, take them off when in my chair, the Bruise comes along and puts one or both paws into them and naps! Here he has his left front paw in the left slipper.
Dinner was another new one for me. My Brooklyn NY friend Vivia Dennis said she has made this a couple of times. Easy, three ingredients. One can of Progresso Vegetable Soup, 1/2 a can of tomato sauce, and 1/2 cup macaroni. Put all in small Crock*Pot on high for 4 hours. I changed it, natch...
I put in Prego Creamy Cheddar sauce instead of the tomato (1/2 jar) and added mushrooms, with the liquid. After cooking about an hour I decided I wanted it thicker so cooked 2 cups macaroni in garlic salted water, drained over a large pan, put the mac in the Crock*Pot ....
Cooked asparagus in the pasta garlic water.... just til not raw.
Added that into the Crock*Pot, changed to low, and cooked another 3 hours. It was GREAT!!!!!
Tonight I think I'll add some more vegetables and maybe some canned chicken. YUMMMMM.....
While I cooked, I was being watched...
Friend Linda Kretzinger Price's son Jason and his wife have done a remarkable job losing weight and getting fit... This is a 21 day fix. He and his wife both lost about 50 pounds each. Check out the link if this is of interest to you.
Hi I'm Jason and I wanted to just share my story here for those who feel down or maybe even hopeless in their life. Awhile back, I had been feeling really depressed about my weight. I'd go to my closet to see what I could wear to work and it seemed my selection of things were disappearing.... I had a big gut and waistline and was tired and had no energy. My wife had been having issues with her health too. She had diverticulitis and found out that she was not only allergic to gluten but also had a tumor on her liver. I thought to myself ... What is going on? I had been eating poorly and did not really exercise much but still throwing my money down the tubes paying for a gym membership I did not use. My wife and I had enough and we decided to do something about it so we started eating cleaner.... And we started doing the Insanity workout program together. I started to focus on my food intake and the kind of foods I ate .We both worked out hard and pushed ourselves. I had heard that Insanity could help change my body and mind so we kept pushing. We prayed that the Lord would heal both of us and take away the tumor. We did not stop... We just kept going. We did the best we could and though a bunch of sweat and some tears we started seeing results. This fueled us on even more. We even had some friends and family doing the workout too and this gave added support. We kept doing the workout until the end of the program and kept eating better...... In the end.... We both had dropped about 50lbs each. My waist went from a 38 to a 31 and..... My wife's tumor disappeared.... A miracle! Our lives had been changed. I would love for all who feel they are hopeless... To believe that they too can achieve their goals and become better and more fit too. I am now starting InsanityMax30 and I invite you to join me in your own journey to fitness. I'd love to help give you support! Like my page: facebook.com/beachbodyjason and contact me
Jason before and after:
Good job Jason!!! You and your 21 day caper should be inspiration to a lot of us!

International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is a day for the dogs. And, that's because there is no one else who can really appreciate the true value of a dog biscuit. They say "Every dog has his day". And, it will definitely be his day,when you give him some tasty dog biscuits.
You might appreciate their value in pleasing your dog, as a reward for behavior, or enticing them to do a trick. But, the dog is the recipient of the treat.
Celebrate today by giving your dog a few dog biscuits.
Here... make your own with pumpkin (good for dogs!)
