Dolores o'Riordan of the cranberries died today. She was 46. I met her a few times at home in Ireland in the early days after the first album.
RIP.

Miso soup issue resolved.... I made a mug yesterday and it looked like dirty gravy.... then it started separating.... looked yucky so I binned it all.
Then had one of those phone calls.... I phoned a help desk about a product I've bought.... 55 minutes and 5 people later..... my issue was not resolved.
Then my healthy eating went pop and I ate some salted nuts and cinder toffee....
New day today... hugs to all.
Enjoy your leave Terra.
Well done on your first aid certification Hawkeye.

I had a Dentist appointment today, I am going to need an old filling replaced. Could be better, could be worse I suppose as at least there are no new issues.

On my way out I saw a man with dreadlocks that were literally ankle length. They look really cool sometimes, this did not look cool but it did have a "wow" factor as it must have taken over a decade to get there.

I feel that way when I see women with naturally long fingernails. How on earth do they do anything?

Petals, your post gave me a big, warm smile!

As of this year all NEW London Black Taxis are supposed to be electric. No of electric cabs in London as of today = 0. The fare meters do not work. Good grief.

Happy hump day.

It has been a boring day at work so far, only enlivened by other people being frankly peculiar.

Also, this devastated me. Big time.

Died suddenly at 46. Far out....what did she do to herself?
It is so so tragic. What an amazing talent. And a very tortured soul.
May she rest in peace. ♥

Sorry to hear about your jaw Venuscat, I hope it heals asap. I grumbled about a replacement tooth filling today that I have not even had done yet.

Glad it is hometime.

I stayed up till 2 in the morning binge-watching a Netflix series and slept till 10–ate some chili for breakfast—then went right back to sleep till 1!

Still discombobulated. Off to the supermarket: my son is on his way home from visiting his older brothers down South, and I need to make his favorite, meatloaf!

I want meatloaf.

Did you use one of those pans that let the drippings drip and you can make gravy from them? Huh? Huh?

Open face meatloaf sandwiches on white bread with gravy. I cry.

Don't get down. This "getting older" thing is the best alternative. Even if it's painful, it beats what we were doing to ourselves.

I drink and eat every anti-imflammatory thing I can find. I still hurt every night. But, if I only need NSAIDS once a day, I call it a victory.

No, Trach.

Tonight’s recipe is called “Best Meatloaf” from Cooks.com. It’s got loads of a sauce containing tomato sauce, ketchup, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, and beef stock.

The meatloaf itself has 80/20 ground beef, Italian breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, chopped onions, chopped green peppers (my husband also threw in some red and yellow peppers), parsley, garlic, egg, spices, and a bit of the sauce mixture.

So it won’t be a pure meatloaf gravy from a pure meatloaf.

We’ve tried a thousand different meatloaf recipes. My husband is forever questing for the “perfect” meatloaf—an elusive “perfect taste” from somewhere in his past that he doggedly tries to recapture (I do this with other things).

No matter how simple or complex we go, no meatloaf ever measures up to the shining ideal!

But it’s got plenty of crunchies, so he and my son should enjoy it well enough. (I wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole—I detest onions and peppers, and there are way too many to pick out!)
