A Note on Things Random

First of all, we did survive the party. And I have thus far resisted the leftover chocolate cake which is calling to me from the kitchen. My house was a long way from clean but at least it was mostly picked up. For his Birthday, we gave Sam an HO scale model train. He’s a bit little to really play with it, but he loves to watch it go around and around. All the kids at the party really liked it. He also got some other fun toys (including a radio-controlled car that Abigail is scared of). It was hard on Abigail to watch Sam get all the presents.

Also, I would like to comment on the passing, a couple weeks ago of a great man, whose life has affected millions, and continues to have an impact on about 100 million daily. I speak of course of Momofuko Ando, the inventor of ramen noodles. He invented this plastic wrapped brick of noodles in 1958, and college students (and others) everywhere are eternally grateful.
Lastly, a few days ago I posted a complaint about a generic medicine having been substituted for my regular prescription. I did some research (thanks to Google), and I discovered that thousands of people have been having issues with this same generic, Levothyroxine, in fact the several Thyroid associations are petitioning the FDA for stricter regulations. Armed with this information, I stormed into Walgreens and demanded name-brand product. Okay, so those of you who know me know better. Actually, I meekly walked to pharmacy counter and made a polite request. The technician was very helpful and agreed to change my folder so that they couldn’t give me a generic without my consent. Anyway, since the switch back I am feeling much better.

Coming Soon: Why housework is MEGA FUN!

Ramen Noodles: so tasty, so terrible.

Refined flour soup, flavored with MSG!

I'm glad the party went well. I hope Abigail will be able to be happy for Sammy for his celebration of life.

Anxiously awaiting "Why housework is MEGA FUN!". :-) Any secrets you can share will be greatly appreciated because we are going through Major cleaning right now also. So far it's 'decently fun', but if that can be elevated to 'MEGA FUN' I'm all ajitter with anticipation.
