Friday: Project 101 – Resilience – Acidity/Alkalinity pH Balance for Health Part One and Music Therapy – Sally Cronin

Project 101 – Resilience is aimed at developing a strong immune system and a body that can fight off disease at any age. One of the key factors in achieving that level of robust health is being a healthy weight. There have been a number of risk factors identified that put certain groups of the population at a higher risk of a critical outcome from being infected with Covid- 19 – Opportunistic pathogens like nothing better than an acidic environment to thrive in.

Saturday: Saturday Snippets…

Here we are again…I hope you all have had a productive week and are still safe and well…Time to tell you what has made me laugh, cry or cringe this week…time to tell you what I have been cooking…of course…

https://carolcooks2.com/2020/06/13/saturday-snippets-3/

Lastly… I just love roundups…Like many of you, I don’t always get the time to read every single post …This week I have been on to WP as I can’t like posts, I can’t always see all my comments it takes time to do that…intermittent faults I agree with Jim it either works or it doesn’t..who invented the sometimes?…,

I have been testing out recipes, cleaning, researching, shopping, writing, washing, writing, sleeping, trying to improve my photography skills, sorting out cupboards., reading, cooking with Lily…I think by now you get the gist…we all have busy lives and a roundup is just great for me…I also purchased another book…from a roundup..Silent Heroes which I am looking forward to reading.

This is Sally’s weekly roundup which is full of lots of books, reviews, recipes, health and music and laughter as we all agree here that laughter is the best medicine…

If anyone has a weekly roundup they love or they write then please send me the link and I will share here…Happy to help spread the good news and views..x

God bless you all in these turbulent times…be safe and stay well…

My hopes…for the future…

When this is all over my hope for the future is a cleaner world… I do want to see communities, and caring for your neighbour becoming the new norm…WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER…Being kind to each other…Loving someone whatever their religion or skin colour…Can we make this happen? We have to but in the right way…Are we willing to make a stand? Personally, I would love to see lessons learnt ..realistically I have my doubts…

Thank you for reading be well and stay safe xxx

About Carol Taylor: Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all stay safe and healthy xx

    Thank you very much for a interesting and very delicious week, Carol! My first this week will be looking for fresh coconuts. I’d found some yesterday, but i think they were originally offered by Robinson Crusoe, earning money for a boat. Lol Be well, stay save and enjoy the week. Michael
