Went to the ‘Mint Bistro‘ in Manchester, New Hampshire for dinner. I wasn’t that impressed with the place nor its food BUT it had a nice airy, single-use men’s room with a large, clean, well-lit mirror. Had my Google Pixel 2 in my pocket and could not resist. This was the best part of going there for dinner!

The top two are on canvas and these pictures with my Google Pixel 2 does not do justice to the texture she managed to create. I like them and that is what matters most. Big problem is we are out of wall space.

A Cheese Story That Seems A Tad Too Cheesy.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Story from the U.K. “Daily Mail”, Sept. 3, 2018.


Regular readers of this blog will know that I LOVE — no, ADORE — cheese. I could live on cheese. I never tire of eating cheese. I ATE a LOT of cheese, each and every day.

But, for the last three weeks, since my dreaded annual physical (with my Indian doctor) I have laid off the cheese.

My physical, as ever, was a nightmare — more so this year since I had put on MORE weight since last year. My doctor gave me heck. I have to lose weight … ideally 20 pounds. That is not going to be easy. But, I am going to try. So, for a start I gave up cheese. In the last three weeks all I have had is ONE (1) thin slice of American white! That is it. Have NOT lost any weight, though. If anything I probably gained some.

So, this story was music to my eyes! But, I am not that gullible. There is method to my madness. I appreciate that cheese in moderation probably will do you no harm, but I am skeptical that large quantities of cheese will do you good. I could, however, be wrong. Alas, I can’t put this to the test. Too much to lose — so to speak. I can’t take any chances. I have to try and lose some weight.

But, I wanted to share this with you.
