I saw a box of cereal at work and when I picked it up it felt like I was lifting a cement block.

 

I was intrigued so I searched for this stuff online.  Apparently it's sold at Costco.

 

So when we went there last week I bought a box.

Will General Mills' "Premium Cereal" Boost Its Margins or Backfire? | The Motley Fool

 

It's like trail mix.  Whole almonds.  Very crunchy.  A large bowl is daunting.  And probably fattening, so I have to go easy on this stuff.


@just bee 

 

Definitely!  


Sounds delicious, though.  Like dessert.  For breakfast.  My kinda meal.👍


@geezerette 

 

Did I mention there is coconut in it, too?  That's what got me to shell out 13 bucks for a box of cereal.

 

But one of our few industries here in ABQ is cereal making.  We have a General Mills plant.  You can tell what cereal they're making when you drive by and sniff.

 

Oooh... it's Cocoa Puffs today...

BREAKING NEWS!!!

 

Honeybees join humans as the only known animals that can tell the difference between odd and even numbers.

 

Studies have shown honeybees can learn to order quantities, perform simple addition and subtraction, match symbols with quantities and relate size and number concepts.

 

Results showed the miniature brains of honeybees were able to understand the concepts of odd and even. So a large and complex human brain consisting of 86 billion neurons and a miniature insect brain, with about 960,000 neurons, could both categorize numbers by parity.


@just bee 

 

Oh dear.  As if the supply chain isn't already strained to breaking.  My Amazon orders will take even longer to arrive with all that competition.🐝

 

I wonder what they order and do they have mini credit cards?  And talk about getting the wrong package--how in the world can they get the proper order with so many in a hive?🧐

I really have to get my act together--and stay that way this time.

 

Not only am I tired physically, mentally, and emotionally, but I just about had a heart attack just now when I reordered my supplements.  They've gone up so much in the last few months that I'd better get healthy on my own because I won't be able to afford them much longer at this rate.

 

And I have to stay functional for at least a couple more years until Carla bites the dust.  No way can I inflict her on anyone if I'm not around.


@geezerette 

 

I have mini-strokes when I see how expensive everything has become.  I've stocked my krill and probiotics and then I wonder why I even try to stay healthy.  I have patients in their 70s who have done meth and opiates all their lives and they're still surviving.  Look at Keith Richards.

 

It seems like I'm trying to stay healthy in order to keep working at a job that's probably killing me.

 

You have to stay healthy longer than that.  Cats can live a long time.  Don't be so sure that someone will take a cat off your hands.  Cat food might be $100 a pound soon.


@just bee 

 

No kidding.  Dog food has already hit that price point.

 

I don't seem to have that kind of good luck with my cats.  Of course, the vets around here don't help any.  Cats are considered sort of throw-away pets I'm afraid.  

Even the head of the shelter has to be constantly reminded to showcase the cats as well as the dogs.  I've volunteered to foot the bill if my friend can talk him into installing some extended cat cages.  So far, no dice.🤬

 

But honestly, I'd love to kick the bucket before I have to deal with selling this place and moving.  I like the idea of a smaller place, but thinking about actually doing all the work to get one makes me ill.  I've decided I need to break down and actually buy a new car and that has me broken out in hives.  I don't know how I'd manage a move.

@geezerette 

 

When I was in our neighbor's driveway watching our vehicles and all the family photos go up in flames in our garage, I thought that a fire was going to be the thing that would push me right over the edge.

 

But I remained eerily calm and kept my sense of humor.  Losing most of my possessions wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  Living in a hotel was kinda nice.  Rediscovering Albuquerque and all its different neighborhoods and parks was an adventure.  Living in a rental in one of those neighborhoods was enjoyable.

 

I hate change but I survived it.

 

You will, too. Heart

BH says bees use Bee-sa cards so they can get their frequent flyer miles.

Re: The Bee Hive -- May 2022 Edition

When I came home the other morning in such a foul mood, I saw the post from @viva923 about buying new shoes.

 

Something I haven't done in a very long time because I have -- even after all the ones I pitched after the fire -- a good supply of shoes.

 

But I succumbed to retail therapy and a sale that day...

Re: The Bee Hive -- May 2022 Edition

Okay, this is kinda gross and I shouldn't even post it, but...

 

Some of you remember the old ComPact thread and our discussions about huge collections of toiletries.

 

Remember all the lotions and body creams I'd collected?  Living in the high desert means dry skin, but I was never able to develop the lotion habit.

 

Well, lo and behold, I tried Alba Botanica lotion and it worked so well that I've been using it religiously.

 

Last week I came home from work and I had this weird, overwhelming feeling that my life had turned into a 60s-era TV commercial.

 

I felt that my body and not my floors had waxy yellow build-up.  I actually felt like my body was suffocating under layers of body lotion.

 

I took a shower and I haven't used lotion since.

 

If I start seeing skin blizzards when I undress, I'll start using lotion again.  But until then...

 

I think I'll just take a break.
