Comment of the Day!


A take out meal you can walk up to. What a great idea. The one place I noticed, which get's a lot of hungry walkers is the hot dog stand at The Home Depot on 53rd and 441. I looked up Gator Dawg in the hot dog department and it wasn't listed. Maybe a different dog house?  One more thing. When I submit my comment, I hope it let's me know it was submitted so I don't submit more than I should.

The Daily GLOB


Happy Tuesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and a very happy Tuesday to you.  It's been on the GLOB Master's mind for a week or so.  When was the last time you had that feeling like you were being sent to the principal's office?  I've been trying to eat better, avoid all the yummy, good things I shouldn't be eating.  Tomorrow I go to the Doctor for a diabetes check-up and an A1C test.     I know I didn't do as well watching my blood sugar numbers as in the past, Plus me, of all people, decided to up my insulin doses on several; occasions. What's up with that?  Oh well, I guess this is just one check-up in a lifetime of 90 day reckonings  . . . The good news is I made myself a cranberry compote last night for my oatmeal substituting Farmers Market Manager Charlie Lybrand's Land Of Flowers Wildflower  honey for the evil white sugar , , ,
