People around here are about ready to mutiny. I don't remember a year like this. This should fizzle before it gets to you.

He has no problem eating raw vegetables, but he refuses to drink them. I'll try pure fruit smoothie on him one of these days.

I don't really know what a smoothie blender is, but that's what it says on the box. I don't have a juicer, and the only thing I have that's similar to a blender is a Cuisinart food processor that I use only to make pesto in bulk -- everything else that needs to be chopped, shredded, grated, or sliced, I do them all by hand. The food processor doesn't liquify, that's why I bought this little machine from Walmart. It's single serving, the cup is portable (supposed to fit most car cup holders) and only costs me $15, but it received 4.5 stars out of 500+ reviews. I figured $15 wasn't too bad of an investment for something I use everyday.

I had an appointment yesterday with an orthopaedic specialist about my left shoulder - possible torn rotator cuff as well as adhesive capsulitis. My appointment was at 10:30 and they asked that I arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork.

Since the office was more than an hour's drive from home I left plenty early and arrived at 10:00. They gave me a medical history form to complete and I had not even finished it before I was called in to the exam room at about 10:12. The doctor came in within 2 minutes and did not rush the exam, explained what was likely wrong with my shoulder and why an MRI was the next step.

They had scheduled it for a rather early time and I explained that I had a long distance to come and could I have a later time. They cheerfully rescheduled it for later in the day and happily provided me with the procedure code so that I could check with my insurance company to find out in advance what my share of the cost would be.

What a great experience.

I lived in MN for 43 long years, and if memory serve me right, one very unusual freaky year up there, I saw snow flurries on Memorial Day!

In the 20 years I've been away from there, I have religiously looked at the Minneapolis temps every day of the year since I left there. I believe your amnesia results from your having had a string of unusually warm winters the past 5-10 years, where you thought Global Warming had finally arrived!

I remember one winter, following the temperatures, there were many days it was colder here in winter in Las Vegas than Minneapolis, and my back-home relatives never let me live it down!

Maybe, just maybe, MN is going back to "normal" again!

It can go back to normal AFTER I leave here - not before. I do remember one June where it was cold - not snowing cold, but cold. The snow is almost gone - it was really beautiful though - that wet stuff that covered all the trees and bushes . It really looked like a winter wonderland.

Now - on to the 60s and next week~~~~the 70s I finally believe it's over.
