Well, after 3 1/2 hours of sleep... Pain... etc.?
Weird note: Life Savers candy (hole in the middle!) debuted the same year that the Titanic sank. Originally designed as a "summertime candy", since the hard ccandy would stick but not melt like chocolates. (Hard polishing, btw, is one reasofn professional candies tend to not stick as much as homemade candies. Which can be tacky no matter how perfectly you make them, short of using exotic ingredients, ahem.)
Until that initial and still produced Pep-o-mint Life Savers? Mints were always square. The creator of Life Savers got the idea for roundness from the pill-making presses used in pharmacies. After some engineering and such? Voila.
Life Savers becamea huge favorite in the Depression, when five cents bought a roll of candies and you had an array of flavors. The five-flavor roll debuted in 1935, and whoever put watermelon in should suffer, IMHO. Yep. The candy stayed the same (lime, lemon, orange, pineapple, cherry) until 2003... when the flavors switched in the US to pineapple, cherry, raspberry, watermelon, and blackberry. It didn't take long before orange replaced blackberry, but if you want th eoriginal Fab Five Flavors? Canada, my friends. Canada.
And, no, the candies weren't named because you couoldn't choke to death on one. IT was the shape. Like little life rings, or as we say in the US, life savers. Nice story, though. Kinda creepier that they made money off the whole Titanic thing in the public mindset...
Our cats are NOT allowed in our bedroom.
As you can see from below... Dixie is so busted. And unrepentant. Dahlia is on an old sleeping bag we turned into a cat bed for... Dixie. Yeah. Musical mattresses, anyone?
Good morning. Six hours in a row! Ish. Well, with lots of up-down-turn-around sort of sleep. Wait... That's exercise...***So, did you know adult diapers are approximately $9 billion industry? Neither did I. Now I can't escape it. How depressing is that? *sigh* The worst of it, in my opinion, is that they can't seem to figure out how to amend what happens to female pelvises, particularly due to...
Got my MRI results today. My neck MRI is completely normal no issues there so my migraines are coming from my head not neck.
