On Taste And Smell

Just wanted to share this saying (translated from Hebrew) that I like:

On taste and smell, there is no argument.


What tastes or smells good or bad to one person versus another is not up for debate. 


Each person has their own taste buds and odor senses.


Some people may be more or less sensitive to different tastes and smells. 


So there is no arguing there.


You either like or you don’t like. 


That’s your prerogative!


Don’t make a big stink about it. 😉

Seaweed Success Diet

Seaweed

Ok, I am going to let you in on a little secret. 


Part of the success of my diet. 


This is us checking out at register. 


The cashier is tallying up dozens of Wasabi Roasted Seaweeds.


The stuff is a great healthy snack. 


I had read for years now how the healthy Japanese diet includes plenty of seaweed and fish. 


And I have been imitating their knowledgable ways. 


And it is working, thank G-d.


Of course, the wasabi flavor gives it a little kick too. 


Do yourselves a favor and get rid of all the disgusting carbohydrates in your life. 


They are poison from an industry that wants you addicted to their garbage foods. 


Get back to basics like fish, meat, vegetables, and that includes plenty of seaweed. 😉

Whiskey Pie

Piehole
So I picked up a Powerball ticket this week…hard to resist with a jackpot of $360 million!



The store that sells the lottery tickets sells liquor.



I see these 3 bottles side-by-side.



And it’s for whiskey.



The whiskey has cherry, pecan, or apple pie flavored liquor.



The ladies pictured on the bottles are sitting on the different pies. 



And this “Pie-oneering” whiskey is called Piehole!



70% proof, and makes for quite some table talk. 



Not surprisingly, they never has this at the kiddush in shule on Shabbat! 😉

Vitamins R Good 4 U

Vitamin Water
I like this advertisement for Vitamin Water. 



It is on the side of a dispensing machine. 



The colors, the flavors, the energy brands…all very appealing. 



Their “Zero” drink is especially good for the calorie conscious of us. 



My desk draw is full of these…chug a lug. 😉
