One Lump Or Two?

Sugar Sugar
The Song

I always thought
that fruit flavored yogurt cups tasted too sweet. Now I read, (source), that that little plastic cup of yogurt with fruit at the bottom, has 6 teaspoons of sugar added!

Better Choice

32oz yogurt, $3.29. 5lbs Trader Joe's blueberries, $5.29

thanks to the economy, I have discovered a better tasting, cheaper, and healthier way to eat yogurt and blueberries. If you guessed that I bought plain, Nancy's lo-fat yogurt in the 32oz container, and fresh blueberries, you would be right. When I have a taste for yogurt, I spoon some into a bowl, add blueberries and enjoy a treat without adding 6 teaspoons of sugar.

The Yahoo word
for the day is "Procrastinate". I will look at the definition later.

Big Mac Anyone?

A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers said today.

Obesity packs many negative health effects, including increased risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and some cancers. It's also been shown to reduce sexual activity.

More than 300 million worldwide are now classified as obese, according to the World Health Organization. Another billion are overweight. The main cause, experts say: bad diet, including an increased reliance on highly processed foods. MORE

Watching Watchmen

This image is about as colorful as the movie gets.

I am so glad that Raley's has Red Box movie rentals. Yesterday I rented Watchmen for $1.

The movie is dark. I don't mean the story, I mean the movie had me squinting at my widescreen HDTV to try and see what was going on with all the dark colored shadow people and places. After a while the movie filmed in the dark, (you would think they could afford lights), became a distraction to the practically non-existent plot. The plot was like the TV shows that I don't watch, so I guess it's unfair that I am reviewing this lackluster, $150,000,000 adaptation of a comic book I am not likely to read. It's just that, in addition to not spending any money on lights, they tried to make it a love, doomsday, and unfulfilled relationship story!

I had better return the thing before I get charged another dollar for an additional day. Ha, ha, ha. I really like Red Box movie rentals.

Snow Leopard

I pre-ordered mine last night.

I will be getting the latest, greatest, wizzbang, new and improved Apple operating system on, or about, September 1st. I look forward to this new OS-X, because it is designed to take advantage of the intel processor and 64 bit speed. Most of the programs that I use are 64 bit ready, although they are running on 32 bit now. The new system is supposed to be faster, more powerful, and yet take up less space and energy. We shall see, and you will, most likely be reading about my experiences right here on this blog.

Found in My E-mail

A man was telling his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art.. It's perfect.'

'Really,' answered the neighbor . 'What kind is it?'

'Twelve thirty..'
