Date: 2 February 2015. Toasting English Muffins on a Heater.
As is much of the country, the
panhandle of Florida has been beset by cold weather yet again. Last
night it was below freezing. In my book 30 is an age, and should not
be the number of degrees above zero! Still there is one good thing

Today I had some celery with the muffin along with fresh tomatoes.
It was not the most nutritious of days, but there was only a knife
