Eating Tomatoes Wards off Depression

It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”   —   Lewis Grizzard

(Yeah.  Probably eating just about anything homegrown gives you a great feeling of satisfaction.  But if tomatoes are your thing . . . okie dokes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hard to disagree with big, juicy, homegrown tomatoes, UR! This one was pretty easy, with IT’S DIFFICULT TO THINK pretty much falling off the vine. I was afraid you might have been delayed yesterday by pondering the Celebrity Cipher, which had me scratching my head for a while.

    Did you just update your formats or is this a temporary difference ?

    It looks fine; it just takes getting used to. 😐

    Are you referring to the posts’ titles? Because that’s really the only thing I changed. When I started the blog, back in 2008, the word “spoiler” was very prominent. But it seems to me that the word has kinda fallen out of favor. The world is fairly fickle/stupid when it comes to some words. Some of it is “political correctness”, and some of it is just plain nonsense. There are a number of people who find the word “moist” objectionable. And, I think that stems from some people using the word in the context of women being sexually aroused. And, a lot of women object to being called “ma’am”, as though the word labels them as an old hag, or something. Traditionally, a young unmarried female was referred to as “miss”, and a married woman was “madam” or “ma’am”. So, if you saw a wedding band on her left hand you would call her madam or ma’am, out of respect. But there are also those who want things more “gender neutral”, and they’d prefer all to be referred to as “Ms.” You may have noticed some people refer to “actresses” as “actors” now. It’s over-the-top nonsense, in my opinion. But it’s all part of this shoving a brand new paradigm down our throats. — YUR

    You mean the Martin Cruz Smith one, hal? I didn’t have too much trouble with it. At least not in hindsight! LOL! I just have a lot going on this week. Today’ might be the last for a few days. — YUR

    I don’t know how to explain this, Unc.

    The content of your post is the same, but look is different. Not bad, just different.

    Everything is bigger. I assumed it was done intentionally. If I find a camera maybe I could post you a photo.

    Not sure if I accidentally hit some enlarge feature! But like many say: bigger is always better! — YUR

    Well, I can say that it is easier to read.

    With my glasses, I still need whatever help I can get.

    Glad to hear that it’s easier for you, lwc. But I can’t personally take credit for it. — YUR

    Well, we’ve experienced that WordPress makes changes at will. They’ve apparently decided they don’t need our consent, or even our knowledge.

    We only rent the site; they own it ! 😦
