I almost learned the hard way re the size of the meals in my new life!

I am doing very well on my new regime since my surgery. I have ben losing kilo a day and I think that is too much. My dietician said to get more protein into my system; mainly form lean beef, chicken fish and lamb. (Hey, what about trim pork?) Of course until next Thursday these amounts of intake have to be liquidised. Hell, that just ain't the same as eating the real unadulterated produce! Can you imagine some liquidized snapper fillet? What's the bloody difference after I have well-chewed it anyways eh? Liquidized mince?---like a meaty milkshake.
It's OK. folks. I can hack it for a few more days before I get to eat almost anything, but in smaller amounts. The amounts and getting protein into me? Well I did what I was told today and for lunch, I put a tablespoon of tinned salmon, hummus and cottage cheese on a little plate. It tasted mighty fine but you know what?---- I couldn't handle all of it. I ate slowly as required and had to leave about a third of it. I WAS BLOODY FULL TO THE MAX! A few well timed farts later and I felt good again. Maybe the weight loss will slow down. Shit, (I wish) am I complaining? Hell no.
I shall have a nana nap now and then take Perdy, my friendly manic (somewhat like the Dear Leader from North Korea!) Jack Russell down to the Onehunga Reserve Bay and let her run off her extra lunch (my leftover) with her equally Ritalin-starved friends. They are the craziest girls and boys I have ever met and I can thank them for all the new friends I have met as a result (plus a book---'Talk To Me,'----check it out on my website of those wonderful walks. Those friends have been so supportive and I love them all.

North Korea's 'Dear Leader' continues to speak from his posterior

The megalomaniac leader of North Korea needs to assert his rule over his impoverished country. While he lavishes scarce resources  on the military, his people starve. His latest 'positioning' is just more of the same. For some reason he thinks that his utterances will bring  the army into line (let's face it, there is no other form of effective opposition to his rule--or is he just the 'tail' that wags at the behest of the military?)
That the world get's itself in a tither over these 'events' is just what the Dear Leader wants' If he doesn't get the attention he desires in the world media, he throws his toys from the crib. Unfortunately the USA responds by bellicose statements that do nothing to ease the situation. We all know that the USA is more than capable of 'taking out' the North Korean military, both conventional and the nuclear capacity, so why respond to the endless ravings of a lunatic?
China too is becoming nervous about it's recalcitrant neighbour to say nothing of what might be going on in the Kremlin. Perhaps both nations will stand by as the USA  launches a massive 'removal' of the threat for once and all. I hope that things do not come to such a dramatic conclusion, because the main losers will be the innocent people in both the North and South of the peninsula. Tick Tock, tick tock!
