Alps – BTD eating on a tour

When we booked our trip, my Honorable Husband was having serious digestive problems and was still on a gluten and dairy free diet. I called the airline to ask about getting meals for special diets, and they didn’t have any trouble at all signing us both up for gluten free and dairy free. Oh my! […]

Alps: the marvelous day

Before I write my last blog about our trip to the Alps, I want to share about the single best day of the trip. We’ll see what BTD applications turn up. HH and I spent three days in the Alps in 1987. As we rode into Switzerland on the train, the views of the mountains […]

Alps and local eating

I had a preconceived idea about how Europeans ate. After a couple of days, I realized that most of what I thought was wrong. I knew that Europeans are much more serious about recycling than we are in America. I knew that Europeans are serious about fuel economy. They drive smaller cars; they ride bicycles […]

Alps, sleep and exercise

Before we left on our trip I did some serious thinking about how to minimize jetlag. In traveling from time zone to time zone in the US, I’ve found that the best thing to do is immediately reset my watch and go on the new time for meals and sleep. Friends who do lots of […]

Alps & European Toilets

We are back from a vacation in the Alps. I had hoped to blog while we were there, but wifi was often slow. That plus warnings that I would be wise to keep a low internet and social media profile while we were out of the country changed my plan. Now that I am home […]

Eating words for breakfast

In fact I have written more than once that I wanted no part in big breakfasts or light suppers. No one is more surprised than myself that I like it. It started with Vacation Bible […]

C Diff

If you are in a hurry, at least read the last paragraph of this blog I have not tried a single new recipe in weeks. HH and I have both been eating a rather bland diet, trying to get his digestive tract back in shape from the double antibiotic disaster last March. I have not […]

Earache & Hearing Aids

I woke up on Monday morning two weeks ago with pain in my ear. That was a surprise. The last time I had an ear infection was when I was in elementary school, a long time ago. My first thought was that I had something like swimmer’s ear. It has been a cold damp spring […]

Eating like 1 year old

I was driving yesterday and someone on the radio said that in the 1960s the average woman weighed 140 pounds and the average man weighed 166. Today the average woman weighs 166.2. The announcer said, “I don’t think that’s what those fighting for equality in the 60s had in mind.” When I heard that, I […]
