Remarkable restraint!

I was faced with 2 Cadbury caramel eggs in the fridge. I had one for lunch. Now there is but one. Who knows what will happen.

I know I wouldn't be able to resist. Remove the temptation, eat the evidence!

And global warming was not an issue. This year again, the AC will not be turned on until June 15th. We are already having days where the temps are in the high 70s and low 80s. We need a separate law for buildings that have been designated "Elderly Housing." Our needs are different from the rest of the population. We have folks with COPD, and other breathing problems. And we are not allowed to have window ACs. It gets complicated. The buildings that have been converted into elerly housing are designated historical buildings. So changing the windows to accomadate window ACs is not allowed. The present law has become a serious health issue for the elderly.

The politicians know that there are now more elderly living in this city than younger folks. And as a block, we never miss an election. If you want to be reelected, you will curry our vote and listen to us.

I know a lot of folks who use salt on different fruit. On apples is another one.

For shame on those of you with little resistance to temptation. You are not allowed to bring forbidden foods into the house again.

I just got off the elliptical machine, felt pretty good. All this talk of eating health & losing weight got me motivated.
