Live To Smoke No More!

And...Laugh More, Woodja?

      I was watching the news and there were people on who had never heard of avocado toast until a year ago.

      I was raised 15 miles from the avocado capital of the world and have been eating it since childhood and wondered how many of you have tried it?

      Haas Avocados are the most flavorful. They are the ones with the pebbley skin. They can take anywhere from 2-4 days to ripen from rock hard state. If you put them in a brown paper bag they will ripen quicker.

      To make the toast or guacamole, you want your avocados to give slightly like you'd want a peach to give when it's ripe.


So, have you tried it?

Do you like it?

How do you make it?


Here's my recipe:

Halve your avocado and scoop out the flesh. I usually do it lengthwise because the seed is going to remain in one of the halves and I whack it quickly with my knife, it sticks in the seed, then I use the knife as a lever to twist it out.


Toast your bread and butter it.

Put at least 1/4 of an avocado on each piece of buttered toast

Take a knife and slice the avocado while it's on the toast and then fan out the slices.

Salt & pepper and a little lemon juice.


at least 1/2 avocado per person is required for guacamole.

I never buy more than two at a time because they all ripen at the same time and you have too much or throw them away.


Lemon juice brings out the best in the avocado. 1/2 teaspoon per avocado in guacamole or sprinkle lightly on the avocado toast. I buy a little container for a buck at one of my stores. It says it is not reconstituted. It keeps for a few months unrefrigerated.

As Long As You Say You Can

~No Limits Here~

~I Don't Do That Anymore~


      No, I didn't pick the one shown below. I learned a long time ago to look for a tan base beneath the netting.

      I saw cantaloupes were 33 cents a pound last week. They were hard as rocks but I very much wanted some different fruit for a change and bought one, assuming it would ripen.

      Well, my hope didn't come true. It wasn't because of anything I did,

it happened before it was mine.

      My theory is, it was picked way too early because when I cut it open, the center was much darker than the outer flesh and had never softened. It had no flavor.  The difference between that cantaloupe being good or bad was what happened before I got it. It was out of my control until it wasn't.


      Now, your quit, your quit, is an entirely different animal.

You control it from the beginning. Don't say you don't, YOU DO!

No one else is going to be responsible for your quit so, there are no excuses. There is no one else to blame.

It's Okay To Think About Smoking.

You Can't Help But Remember Something You Did For So Many Years.

It's Not Okay To Consider It.

Thinking You Want To Smoke (Consideration) Is What Will Take You Back To It.

Consideration Becomes Obsession.

Obsession Becomes Obliteration.

Why do we continue to numb ourselves to life by living in a smoking routine?


This is from Wichita Lineman....Relate it to nicotine...Do you need it more than you want it?
