I'M SUE O'NEIL WITH ANOTHER STAR SMART HEALTH TIP ON STAR 102.5. ITS NO MAGIC BULLET, BUT THE BENEFITS OF WATER ARE MANY. FIRST, THE SECOND MOST POPULAR DRINK-BEHIND SOFT DRINKS. WHILE YOU MAY NOT NEED EIGHT GLASSES, THERE ARE PLENTY OF REASONS TO DRINK WATER.
*THINK OF WATER AS A NUTRIENT YOUR BODY NEEDS THAT IS PRESENT IN LIQUIDS, PLAIN WATER AND FOODS. ALL OF THESE ARE ESSENTIAL DAILY TO REPLACE LARGE AMOUNTS OF WATER LOST EACH DAY. FLUID LOSSES OCCUR CONTINUOUSLY, FROM SKIN EVAPORATION, BREATHING URINE. WHEN YOUR WATER INTAKE DOES NOT EQUAL YOUR OUTPUT, YOU CAN BECOME DEHYDRATED. EVEN MORE SO IN WARMER CLIMATES, STRENUOUS EXERCISES, AND HIGH ALTITUDES.
*WHEN YOU ARE LOW ON FLUIDS, THE BRAIN TRIGGERS THE BODY'S THIRST MECHANISM. AND UNLESS YOU ARE TAKING MEDICATIONS THAT MAKE YOU THIRSTY, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THOSE CUES AND GET YOURSELF A DRINK OF WATER, JUICE, MILK, COFFEE-ANYTHING BUT ALCOHOL. ALCOHOL INTERFERES WITH THE BRAIN AND KIDNEY COMMUNICATION AND CAUSES DEHYDRATION FIND THIS TIP ON MY BLOG AT MYSTAR1025.COM. I'M SUE O'NEIL ON STAR 102.5

So when hockey was in Lockdown the Sabres had lots of time to fill. They came up with the Sabres University. It a program that has each employee take classes on what theother departments in the organization do. So Entercom decided to do it here. Its been really eye opening. I attended a class by the Engineers at the actual transmitter site. I had no idea how tough their day was. I also attended a class on Sales, Legal, and the Business department. Yes there was a lot of moaning and groaning. Yes it was worth it!
I am out of my mind ready to dig in the dirt. I am so distracted by this nice weather. I want to be weeding and cleaning and setting up my patio. I honestly don't mind this time of year of setting everything up. I don't like when we have to take it down. So this weekend will be chilly, so I will hold off on power washing and playing in the pond (water is cold) But garden clean up-here I come!
Doesn't it seem like it? I wanna play in the dirt on the weekends and its cold and rainy....I go back to work Monday voila-beautiful. Go figure. I did mow on Sunday and lay down fertilizer, but it was cold and I had to wear a coat. This weekend I'm shooting not only for no coat, but shorts-heaven forbid!
Either way, its springtime in Western New York and its awesome!
I had my first party of the spring yesterday! I had the usual cheese munchies, but then....Heres what I made -grilled poblano's stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese. Baked Beans, Mexican cornbread, apple cider marinated chidken and charcoal grilled ribs. Cold Champagne and good friends...Best Sunday in a very long time!
So as spring approaches, I start trying to figure our what fits in my closet. What doesn't fit. What I need to make some new outfits out of what I have and what just has to go! So far...I need sunglasses, I know-why were those in the closet...I need nude wedge heels, a simple long sleeve white sweater...and new skirts...love skirts-the most comfortable clothes on earth! New shorts-if they aren't short shorts that is...thats a tough find..oh and new sneakers for my work out...
So most people know that I get nervous shaking hands or being around sick people. I hate hate hate to be sick. I stay home when I'm sick. Not everyone does. So I got really sick and am totally bummed out because every year my mom visits and we go to Plantasia and spend the weekend shopping and hanging out. Nope, I gave it to her and we both spent the 5 day visit in bed, sick. Thanks....so now I'm even more paranoid about shaking hands...oh well. Thanks to my doc Joanna-I'll be better soon!
I started my seeds. I don't need to. I like to. Although I do grow a tomato variety that you can't buy as a plant. Burpee Longkeeper. They are tomatoes that store well into winter in a cool dry place. I usually have tomatoes from my garden into January. But just the whole process of starting the seeds gets me mentally ready to soldier on through the last of the crappy Buffalo winter and start thinking of spring! I get so flippin excited when the seeds sprout that its like Christmas! So here we go my fellow nerds. I will see you at Plantasia this week and very soon I will see you at one of our local garden centers! Happy gardening!
Wow! Don't you just feel sooooo good when the weather is nice? I hope you had a great weekend. We got to go for a walk around our North Buffalo neighborhood. We like to look at all the houses that are for sale! One has to dream you know. But the best part of the weekend weather was that I could open my windows! And I did it again this morning! Cooking odors bye bye. My cats couldn't run to the windows fast enough to see the sights, smell the smells and hear the birds! Love it!
I have two small Koi ponds....one has sprung a leak...I had to fish out (get it) fish out, the fish and quickly put them in the other pond! Hard to do when its 20 degrees...But that means I now have the excuse to make it one large pond....Lets see...I need a liner, reconfigure pumps, filters and waterfalls....what the hell do I do with the fish in the meantime...I have a lot of planning to do!
