Weekend Walkabout



Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world. We went Walkabout at our local garden centre and bought a few veggies for our garden :)  I've missed eating veggies fresh from the garden. 









Walkabout is a phrase which means to walk around and explore with no specific destination in mind. Have you been walkabout anywhere interesting this week? If so, post your story or pictures to your blog, leave a comment here and a link to your post on our Linky and Whitesnake or KB will come take a look. Don't forget to put a link to Weekend Walkabout so others can find us and join in the fun.





See you tomorrow

Holiday Time




Whitesnake and I are enjoying ten days holiday together. Yesterday, Whitesnake went to visit his friend at the Northcote Tavern and today we've been to our favourite Japanese restaurant for lunch. We decided to spend our holiday at home so we can chill out. I'll let you know what else we get up to.




See you tomorrow for Friday Feel Good.

Weekend Walkabout



Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.  I went Walkabout at our local garden centre this weekend but forgot to take my camera with me. Here are the pics we took last time we were there.





We enjoyed a yummy lunch and a few drinks, decaf for me 'cause too much coffee makes me go round the bend.


Maybe it wasn't really decaf  'cause I look like I'm on my way round the bend.



We didn't buy any plants because they were quite expensive but there were a few names which made us giggle.





Me thinks Drunken Woman Lettuce would be very appropriate for this household.

Weekend Walkabout ~ Eastern Beach, NZ



All is well here. Coco has recovered nicely from her visit to the Vet last week and is on her last day of antibiotics. Whitesnake and I have been enjoying watching as many games as we can from The Rugby World Cup 2011. It's a real treat to have the tournament in New Zealand.  I remember many times in the past, dragging myself out of bed in the early hours of the morning to watch games being played on the other side of the world. One time I set my alarm for 4am, watched a game, went to bed for a couple of hours and then off to work...watching the games live in our living room with a couple of drinks is much better.  New Zealand have won their first game, so far so good.
Now it must be time for walkabout...

Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.



It's wonderful to see people enjoying the windy weather we've been having.

The Rugby World Cup 2011 kicks off tonight in my home town. I'm so excited, I could pee my pants, LOL!



Go the All Blacks. I'm hoping they'll do better than previous years, if not, I'll probably crawl under a table somewhere and sulk until the tournament is over.

Have a great weekend all.

Coco's Make Over




We had to take Coco to the vet to have some lumps checked out. Lumps have been removed and are nothing serious, teeth have been cleaned and hair has been cut right back. She was feeling very sorry for herself last night but is back to her tail wagging self today :)






See you tomorrow for Friday Feel Good.

She had tightly clutched her mother's hand at his funeral, neither woman feeling the least bit saddened and yet having to display appropriate emotions for the many friends and family of the departed. In the strange way the world sometimes worked, Benny Tyler had been immensely popular with just about  everyone except his own family because he had been generous and cordial with everyone except his own family.

Friday Feel Good




Whitesnake is still recovering from the flu so we've been chillin out at home. We took Coco to the vet for her annual check up. I asked the vet to check out a lump on Coco's neck, the vet thinks it is probably OK but has scheduled her for a biopsy next week just to be sure. Fingers crossed that all is well there.



Here's my contribution to Friday Feel Good, which is hosted by my wonderful man - Whitesnake. Each Friday we will post something that gives us that feel good feeling. Pay Whitesnake a visit if you'd like to join in the fun.





Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life.  Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise.  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?   
A:  Oh no.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way.  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two body, your ratio two to one.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy: No pain...good!  
      
Q:  Aren't fried foods bad for you?   
A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food fried in vegetable oil.  How getting more vegetable be bad?

Q  :   Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A:  Oh no!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.  You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.  

Q:  Is chocolate bad for me?  
A:  You crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around!

Q:  Is swimming good for your figure?  
A:  If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.

Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?  
A:  Hey!  'Round' is shape!

Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
And  remember:  
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"   
 
AND.....
For  those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.  It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.   

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans... 
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION:   Eat and drink what you like.  Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
