Weather ~ Specialized Doctor Song ~ Right of Way ~ Garlic

Good 46º sunny clear morning. We hit 91º yesterday, a record for this area for this date.  

From the radar.... nothing close yet...

Ok, so without any details, this might give you a hint as to what I did yesterday:
Ok, so back to normal.....
I posted the following on my blog 3 years ago... was just reading it and thought I'd share it again....
On Tuesday I left the Bohemian where I had lunch with the girls and stopped to drop a prescription at my pharmacy in RR. Leaving there, a woman was walking along and made a sudden right turn towards the car lane where I was driving. She never looked up. She was far enough away so I just continued on... as I passed her she screamed at me, "STOP!" I rolled down the passenger side window and said, "What? You think you're at f**king Disneyland?" I know. But idiots think everyone should pay attention to what they are doing and they don't have to be accountable and they all think whatever they do they have the right of way! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Then she yelled..."BITCH! And your big black truck!" LOL. I said back, "And your shoes are ugly!" (She was 30-ish, really heavy, and had on bright pink tennis shoes.)
Then she just stepped right off the curb immediately in front of moving traffic!! Two cars had to quickly stop and sit and wait for her to cross in front of them. No crosswalk there! She needed a citation, big time! And an attitude adjustment! I'm still smiling. That was fun!

National Garlic Day

National Garlic Day promotes the many uses of Garlic. And, there certainly are many uses. It's a vegetable. It's a herb. It is used in recipes around the world. Garlic has been used medicinally for thousands of years. And, Garlic is believed to ward off evil spirits. About the only negative thing you can say about it, is that it can negatively affect an otherwise romantic evening.
As a medicinal herb:
Phytochemicals in garlic are believed to provide protection against heart disease and cancer. Specifically, stomach and colorectal cancers.
Helps to fight off colds and flu.
Lowers blood cholesterol levels.
Reduces the buildup of plaque in arteries.
Used as a treatment for acne and warts.
Used for toothaches
Celebrate National Garlic Day by using it heavily in your meals and snacks today. Spend some time researching its medical benefits. You might find you are adding more garlic to your menu everyday.

Did you know? We all have fears. As a matter of fact, there are so many phobias, that psychologists can hardly keep track of them all. Just so you are well informed, Alliumphobia is the fear of garlic
