Sunday greetings everyone!

Oatmeal, Yum!Grandma Cybersalt and I got our flu shots this week and while we were at the doctor's office I also got the results of bloodwork for my thyroid levels and, as it turns out, my cholesterol levels. (I had forgotten that test was on the list as well.)

This helped me discover another plus of wearing medical masks everywhere (other than the benefit of reducing the spread of COVID, of course): when your doctor is telling you how high your cholesterol is and that your chance of a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years is 1 in 5, he can't see the look on your face.

The look that my mask was covering was not one of fear or surprise. It was one of reluctance as I succumbed to the fact that my bacon boat was sunk, my days of buttered croissants had crashed, and my Kentucky Fried chicken had come home to roost. Not only were the levels higher than they have ever been (I have been quite the COVID cupcake these past 9 months), Susan was there, was hearing it all. I even said to my doctor, "You know you are breaking the 'bro' code by telling me this in front of my wife!"

So now I must adjust to life with the health nuts and seedy breakfasts - I mean with nuts that are healthy and breakfasts with lots of seeds. And, please don't think Susan is forcing me. It is the responsible and loving thing to do for her, our kids, and our grandchildren.

And besides, with carefree eating of my favorite foods removed from my middle-aged pleasures, getting a Mustang convertible can move up a spot on the to-do list!

Today's video share is an amazing vocal performance by Jonathan White, who at one point holds a note so long it made me wonder if he even needed to breath at all.
