    I tried to change my profile pic, but it gets so cut off.
    Thanks for the suggestion : - )

    Might have to edit the picture first cropping it so that you have the right perspective before changing your profile pic. Or shrink it. I'm not great at editing LOL Good luck!

    I am Dawn and live in South East British Columbia. I am 60.
    My goal remains the same as it has been for quite some time, 16-20 AF days per month.

    Friday October 23 - AF - Always happy to see that 16AF number.
    Saturday October 24 - Drinks. Awesome busy day today.
    Sunday October 25 - AF - Planning on racking up a few more AF days before the month is over.
    Monday October 26 - AF - Easy decision, early workday on Tuesdays.

    Rolling total: 18 AF days out of 26 days so far.

    @chocolate_owl: speaking of junk science. If anyone is interested in a credible, succinct, and not hysterical podcast about SARS CoV-2 you should check out Dr. Micheal Osterholm's weekly COVID-19 update. Search for CIDRAP, (Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy) out of the Univ of Minnesota. The link is on the first page. They do it on Thursdays. He is sane, evidence-based, and has the ability to translate confusing public health data/information into real life applications, without being too depressing or stupidly optimistic.

    Doxmum is on sabbatical until after the election.

    14 days AF. Monday was another no-wining day. And inspired by @MissMay, I hit the barbell for about 15-20 minutes.

    I also quit worrying about all the things that are totally out of my control and feel so much better. I do this by spending a few minutes each morning stretching and telling myself this. It's a good stress relief, maybe a sort of meditation. From this practice, I quit the morning news check without consciously thinking about it.

    @dawnbgethealthy I can connect with you offline during late winter so we can touch base. We need to hit it before "fire season". Possible we can meet you in Cranbrook and spend the day nearby, maybe Fernie. I am sure you know about the good places.

    A list we can explore? 100 most popular non alcoholic beverages in the world. I've only tried about 14 of these listed ... mostly types of coffee or tea. Fun to read all the descriptions and origins. I need to search for Julmust (Christmas juice) and see if anyone around here carries it (Ikea). Description of Julmust: Swedish soft drink ... dark, sweet soda that has many similarities to both Coca-Cola and Root Beer. It is made up of sugar and water and there is hop extract and malt ... but the spices are a secret. Two of the biggest Julmust brands in Sweden are Nygårda and Apotekarnes.
