Flavored salt

I received some flavored salt as a Christmas present. Specifically, Jacobsen Habanero and Jacobsen Sriracha (appears to have been discontinued). I’ve concluded that, at least with these two flavors, that I prefer to keep my salt and spices separate. Habanero, like rosemary, is such a distinctive and overpowering flavor that even a little bit of it can turn your dish into a habanero dish. Not something I want to have very often.

Time for some changes

Well, it’s been an interesting year. Now as I approach the last year of my fifties, I’m confronted by a number of changes and life choices. “When one door closes, another opens” and all that.

One change I honestly don’t care about all that much, I’ve quit it before — didn’t miss having it in my life then, won’t miss it now. Funny how that is. Perhaps if I felt more strongly about how it ended I’d be upset, but surprisingly, I’m not. There simply was no real future in it anyway and I knew it.

The other thing for me to do now is to get back on track with my health. Lose the weight, watch what I eat and drink, maybe exercise. Then there’s music. Much to do.

Getting on the other side

Income disparity is very real for most people. Once in awhile, somebody gets lucky and comes into more money than they ever dreamed. In an instant, their circumstances changed. No longer were they consumed with paying bills or other mundane chores. Now they had money. They could to do the things they always wanted to do, but never did, simply because they now had money. That’s reality. If you have the means, then you can do.
