The café also has a full bar and a modest selection of wines and beers. Open from 10 am - 6 pm. If I was an afternoon drinker I'd grab a novel and head over for a glass of wine. Sadly, or happily, or non-judgementally, I am not.
Health notes: Studies in the news say that the aggregate blood pressure of adults in the USA is rising as a result of stressful times. I'm trying to do my part to keep the average down. I'm exercising twice a day. Not sitting too much (typed this standing at my file cabinet) and have cut down on rich foods. I've dropped about five pound and one, maybe two, belt notches this Fall and I've been taking daily BP readings.
I'm happy if I'm around 115 over 65 and I hit the floor and start a quiet meditation practice if I get much about 125 over 70 in any given day. Who really know if this is so important? But I've got the time and inclination to pay attention so I'm adding my data points.
In my mind exercise trumps diet, weight management is important and living with low stress is just as vital. Wasn't thinking about all that when I snagged the Leica TL2. Hope it doesn't raise my blood pressure.
Hey! It's the holidays. After you watch "A Christmas Carol" and you write checks to your favorite charities, and you do your good volunteer work, don't forget the all American tradition of looking out for number one. In that spirit I suggest you get yourself something fun and indulgent. You only live once.
for my UK and Euro readers...carry on.
