i really felt like having veg, so i bought these two at sainsburys. it is only £1. and made with a egg sauce, it is delicious. i use half a stock cube, so that it gives it that slight salty ness.

celery and brocolli are local veg, so wont be affected by the £ exchange rate. we should eat more of them really instead of buying imported veg.

brocolli also have calcium, which is not something that we can guess. it is counter intuitive, a green veg that is also calcium rich, when we associate calcium with dairy products. the reason why i thought i should have more calcium in my diet is because the doctor’s note , which was sent to me, (it is part of their policy of sending to patients what the doctor wrote), says the fracture in my foot might be due to a lack of calcium, and that they should keep that in mind. it is quite possible of course that due to a lack of calcium, the bones in my foot are less strong, and so fracture easily… so i thought i better increase my calcium and do a lot more exercise… exercise is the best medicine. really.

its really a beautiful day out there, blue sky , sunny… and i want to stay in to see this tv film tintin ,secret of the unicorn.2011.

sigh, torn between two desires. i guess the outdoors will have to wait. dr seuss, cat with a hat, is also on in another channel and at first i was torn between the two, but after seeing the dr seuss for a bit, i realise it is too childish for me. both are animation movies, but the tintin one is really very realistic. this film is very british, with british turn of phrase and pronounciation, which is unusual, because the original tintin is belgium.

    I like Tin Tin. It has a good plot and is far more mature than Dr Seuss. Good choice.

      i think the printed cartoons are much better. film adaptations dont really work i think. i mean just look at all those marvel super hero films, i dont think they are a patch on the cartoons books.

    Yes the books in cartoons format is a good read.

      i think reading comic books is for me a childhood thing. now i just dont read them anymore. is it just me, i wonder or others also feel the same? something has got lost in the modern comic books nowadays.it is another childhood thing that i lost when i became an adult.

        Lol! I still read Archies and Garfield comics. There is not many Tin Tin ones. But yes these days gaming wins for kids not books and stuff. Sad
