Good 33º foggy morning. Never got any rain here yesterday... some fell in Grants Pass. A prediction of 50% chance early evening today.
I think I should get this sign....
On Tuesday I was watching Dr. Oz and he had a cook on the show that said when your fresh herbs, like Rosemary Oregano and Thyme....
start getting old, the best way to save them is to wash them, dry them, and wrap them in paper towels in small bunches. Then microwave for 1 minute. It will dry them out and you can pull all the leaves from the stems and store them for up to a year in the cupboard in a sealed container.
Breakfast yesterday was an omelette made in the microwave with my new omelette maker.... Here is the Amazon link:
It cooks 4 eggs into a perfect omelette in 3 minutes!
You mix the eggs and ingredients separate... I used chive rings, shredded cheese, and minced clams...
Beat up 4 eggs and put in the maker, divided between the two sides and microwave on high open for 1 minute 30 seconds. Then divide the other ingredients (you can use what flips your skirt... crumbled bacon, green onions, cheese, whatever) on both sides and microwave open for 1 minute. Then flip one side over and snap lid shut. Microwave 30 seconds more.
I only ate half, as that was 2 eggs!!! Will reheat the other half tomorrow.... REALLY good and sooooooo easy!!!
Oh, and Bruiser LOVED the juice from the clams!
Then it was a trip to my therapist for my back... Stacy is her name. I was really happy to find a therapist in Rogue River so I didn't have to drive to Grants Pass three times a week! Stacy is super nice. We had a bunch in common. Her Dad and husband both Navy guys. She even lived in Rancho Cordova where we did when Kristen was 2 and her dad in the AF. My uncle had a Dairy Queen there also. Stacy's Dad was a real gunsmith, like my Jerry, and made guns, taught her the art of shooting.
She did some deep warming (I don't know what it's called) in my back. Then massage and then she put these pads on my back and hooked them to a machine. For about 15 minutes it felt like little tiny people were dancing on my back! I'll find out all the technical terms tomorrow. This is TLC Physical Therapy:
I had worn my "The weather outside is frightful, but the wine is so delightful" sweatshirt, so as I was sitting filling out paperwork in the office, in came the chiropractor from lunch. His first words were "the weather outside is frightful"... I laughed, stood up, and showed him my shirt. He laughed!!!!

It's his 'head down' pose when he talks to people that irks me to the bone!
The son of comparative literature professor August Coppola (a brother of director Francis Ford Coppola) and dancer/choreographer Joy Vogelsang, Cage changed his name early in his career to make his own reputation, succeeding brilliantly with a host of classic, quirky roles by the late 1980s. Initially studying theatre at Beverly Hills High (though he dropped out at 17)...

Throw Back Thursday.....
This photo sits on my desk. Can't recall when or where it was taken, but I love it!
Dinner was Basmati Rice Medley (from Trader Joe's ... includes wild rice, herbs, and vegetables) with salmon, tomatoes and artichoke hearts... The rice and water go in the rice cooker, in the tray on top went the salmon. Then it was plated together. On the tomatoes and artichoke hearts I put some of my infused olive oil and garlic seasoning.
Later it was chair, wine, a nice chat with Linda, TV, and Dude wanting scratching. He rubs against my feet when I'm in the recliner...
Here is the video... a tad dark, but you get the idea!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
