I love salad bars. But now the coronavirus scare has made me rethink eating at places with salad bars and buffet-style foods. Even after the scare is over I am not sure I won't be psychologically conditioned by then.
I just did some research on gazpacho. We take it for granted that the recipe includes tomatoes. Not realizing that the original recipe which dates back to ancient Romans times did not include this ingredient because it was not available.
I love grapefruit; especially ruby red grapefruit. Whenever I go on a diet, I drink grapefruit juice. The only I caution people about is drinking or eating this fruit when you are taking certain medications. Check with your doctor.
As a young child, I absolutely adored Gary Cooper, in any role that he played. Whether it was western, military, ordinary businessman, etc. To this day, I still love watching old movies with him. You also mentioned another star that I admired, James Stewart. Those two men lit up the screen. They are reminders of the goldern era of Hollywood which is now long gone. My favorite Cooper movies was Sergeant York.
I am thankful that I do not suffer from loneliness. I do hope that those who do will get help or manage to work through it. I personally get very frustrated when my own children FINALLY tell me they were depressed or lonely but they worked through it. I'm glad they feel better, but I wish they had told me. Maybe I could have helped them work through it quicker. I advise others who are suffering NOT to do what my kids did. Get help. Don't be lonely and suffer alone.
