Out of the Blue

It turns out I was premature in my farewell to the duckies the other day. Though only four of my fine feathered friends showed up Saturday morning, we had a full house the few days since then. So while they remain in the vicinity for now, it seems safe to assume they will depart for warmer climes shortly, as it's now October, and the onset of autumn is pretty noticeable around here at this point.

Really? It's 27C up here today. And the next 2 weeks look to be more Fall'ish it's still supposed to be 16C on average. Probably a few more weeks before leaves change and fall here at this rate.

Thought that must have been Florida Man visiting Utah if that was the case but alas it's not.

Glad somebody is getting Autumn temps. Predicted to set an all time high here later this week. They are predicting highs in the 80's next week. Beats the 90's I guess.

Another couple of days to go here, high of 91 today, high tomorrow is supposed to be 86. After that it calms down to the more expected highs in the mid 70s...

I mean, who am I going to believe?

"NutriRECS",

or

The World Health Organization, and
the UK's National Health Service, and
the American Cancer Society, and
the American Heart Association?

So hard to know whom to trust. I guess I'll just go with the one giving the more delicious advice.

Oh, you don't say?

"As for the one review including randomized trials, many of the trials were funded by the meat industry, and none looked solely at health outcomes from red and/or processed meats."

Amber Guyger should have worked on an alibi before murdering her lover. Cops have the most fun in prison.

She would have been acquitted if she were a white male.

She'll appeal.

Nitrate laden salted sausages are 1000x better for you than legumes and vegetables. Also catalytic converters and other emission controls cause air pollution.
