Retired No One Told Me! Weekly update…Korlan fruit, Obesity and Barfly…

Welcome once again to my weekly roundup…If you have missed any posts then sit down with your favourite cuppa and have a browse…

A few reblogs this week as I have the dreaded cough from hell and it is driving me mad…I think I need to step up my healthy eating as I have been doing a bit of unhealthy eating lately and as this is my first cough for at least 5 years I suspect it is a warning to get back on track… I have always had one of these coughs and it makes my ribs hurt it is such a fierce cough so I am stepping up the ginger and getting back on track as I really don’t do ill… I am the grumpiest person on this earth if I don’t feel 100%.


Fruity Friday’s brought forth a lovely sweet n sour tiny little fruit given to me by a tuk-tuk driver he picked them from a tree in his village… Looking like a very small lychee it was quite hard to peel and had a very sour flavour compared to the Lychee which is quite a perfumed taste and sweet.

Not feeling like writing too much I had a trawl through my older posts and this one is a charming post about Ole Smoky Moonshine, chillies( of course), an old man, roast chook and a  recipe for Homemade Moonshine Hot Sauce.

You ask I answer is totally different from Barfly and is about our friend Mr Militant Negro so if you want to know a little more about the man in question then this is the post to read…

The Charade is the brainchild of my friend Steph the author of The Community, After The Light after the Love and Pictures of  Deceit. It started as just a thought and with an invite for any other author to write a chapter or two …where will the story end? We don’t know yet but it is intriguing and has promise…To date, there are 15 chapters some written by Moi…download-3the-charade

No more Diets just Healthy eating… I am taking a trip around the world and looking at various country’s eating habits…This week it is Germany which although they are not high on the worlds obesity chart as they do a lot of walking and cycling and keeping fit is high on the agenda as a nation BUT their consumption of processed meats/fats is high so will it cause problems in later life for many individuals?

Next, as many of my readers and friends are experiencing snow and bitterly cold weather, Soup was on the agenda…

Squash and veg soup 2

That is all for this week I hope to be back in fine fettle by next week …

I hope you have enjoyed this roundup if you have then please hit the share buttons…xxx

    I am so sorry to hear about the bug that got you, Carol! Tell it to go away, drink a cup of vodka with hot pepper in it, and feel better!
    P.S. Russian cup is 12 oz, as opposed to American 8 oz. For the treatment to be effective, you must drink a Russian cup!

      Thank you, Paul..It is certainly the cough from hell but I have always had a cough just not since I have lived here and thought that was the end of my coughs but seems not as everyone in the house has had it as well 🙂 xxx

    Certainly hope you overcome that cough quickly. Sounds like your plan of action to get back on track to healthier eating will speed the process along. Don’t push yourself too hard until your over the hurdle.
