I went to sleep at 945. I can’t even drink my tea my throat is so swollen and sore. 2013 can only improve for us, right?

Ouch, sounds horrid. Yes onward and upward… wishing you a speedy return to good health.

And many thanks to so many of you for the lovely New Years Wishes and many friendly likes  …

Answers: Shandy, Radler, early mornings, and avoiding the scorch

The first time I had anything like a Shandy was in Germany and it’s called Radler there. I really loved it too and it’s hard to find something thats the same.

Interesting. I’d never heard of Radler, but just looked it up and it sounds exactly like shandy. If you want to recreate it, I’d just experiment with Sprite or some other lemon soda and any ole german lager.

Hey benitle do you have a Radler recipe to share?

I’d never heard of premade shandy! Also, the only people I’ve seen drink them are old ladies……..

ZING! Those be fighting words …

Ughh so jealous! Wish I could get my butt outta bed!

Truth be told, although I said it was easy, it still kinda sucks. I have to be sooooo disciplined about bedtime. Speaking of which it’s 10PM; I’m officially breaking my cut off.

The beach before 8am to avoid being scorched. Long sleeved cotton shirts and big hats, to avoid being scorched. Feeling sweaty all the damned time. I really don’t like summer. Give me autumn or spring any day.

Yup, this is why breakfast while it’s still cool is the best time of day during the summer.

And this is another reason why I run in the dark all the time! Running in the South in the US is a challenge in the summer; sun, heat, humidity, and poor air quality. As a fair skinned asthmatic, running is basically attempted suicide!

Sorry! Claim a knife fight though

I definitely need to work on that. Any story that starts off with “I lay down with my wife” and ends with a resulting injury should really be a bit racier in the middle than “we had a catnap.”

Oh man. Feel better soon! If it makes you feel any better - I once cracked a rip doing yoga. :(

What the heck! Some kind of new full contact yoga that I don’t know about? Or life is really tough in the big apple ;)
