Post a good thing that happened in your life today


Recommended Posts

This morning I took a piece of meat out of the freezer to thaw. I thought it was a nice, thick ribeye steak. After it thawed I was getting ready to sear and braise my steak, when I saw on the package, “roast” in my handwriting. This obviously was part of a larger beef roast I had divided and cut up the first piece to make beef stew.

I threw it in my instant pot and 30 minutes later I had roast with my sweet potato. Turned out well, so a good thing. 😁 (I had my mouth set for steak, though)

Alright, true story. At some stage during pioneering days in Australia, there was a fashion for Irish names. People were changing their names by deed poll.

There was even a guy named  O'Smith. Someone asked him 'o'Smith!! Where did you get your name from?'. He replied 'Same place as the opossum'.

 

I love my old books where we can laugh at a joke told over a hundred years ago.

Some of the jokes on the forum are so old they had to be carbon dated...

They'll be fine if you put them in through the archive route.

I've had gout for a week (take my advice... don't ever get it. The pain is excruciating).

 

I just walked from one side of the room to the other, forgetting to use my crutches.

 

I must be on the mend! Hooray!!

Too much port and shellfish.....chance would be a fine thing. Or not.

If gout wasn't so painful, and I was more mobile, I'd come over and give you a slap... 😎

Been there John, no fun, up there with some of the worst pain I have ever experienced.  Since being put on a gout medicine, I have not had a flair up in 3 or 4 years!  It’s called Allopurinol, it has worked for me.

Allopurinol... me too. Supposed to prevent gout... rather than treat an attack. So it had to be plan B: Colchicine. It takes a few days to calm things down... but it works.

 

Gout is thought by some to be a bit of a joke ailment... but only by people who've never had it!

Yes, I took Colchicine when I had attacks but now take Allopurinol as a maintenance drug and it seems to work, at least it has for me.

I don’t want gout. Never had it. One of our popular hosts on sports talk radio gets attacks and has voiced how intense the pain is. I’ve had kidney stones, does that count in besting you? :lol:

knowing we have the bidet is a positive. (It's a seat you attach and they say it takes about an hour, so you don't need a plumber)

 

 

An hour!!!! I'll stick to using paper, that only takes a few seconds . . . 😉

I called my friend who is in the Old Actors Home now. He has memory problems and they are not allowed visitors for obvious reasons so he has not talked to anyone about what is happening. He was aware of the virus but he doesn't use a computer or, I guess, watch the news and was continually amazed by what I told him. He hadn't realized it is all over the world. When I described the empty streets and no theatre, no movies, no museums, restaurants closed, he  kept being surprised and kept saying he is glad to be where he is. I am glad too and, for once, I didn't have to feel bad that he is no longer in the City. It was so nice to talk to him and it cheered me up.

Just having some Rochefort 10 Trappist beer. 11.5% ABV🤪

Yes, I know, it says 10 but those are Belgian degrees. They're bigger😀

Here's some at home in the town- only about 2 food miles on this bottle. Santé.

We're having home-made pizza (it's Friday after all) but I'm pretty envious.

Shall we swap photos- we both have 5 star QC (well hopefully)!
