          Ahhh…the Ramen.  It is the diet of the sick, the hungry, the poor.  It hits the spot when you are not up to par but need a little something for your tummy.  When you are hungry but dont want to unfreeze something to cook.  And when you are poor…you can cook alot of Ramen for very little money and you can fill up a family.  Comfort food that is what it is.

        The Ramen….it is where we have all been at one time or another.  :)!

        My parents just got a new car.  It is a Honda, Fit.  Gorgeous medium blue in color.  It is very pretty.  Kind of low to the ground; i think it may be a problem for them in the winter .  But they seem to really like it. 

        Myself…I am not a fan of really, really small cars.  But i do think it looks nice.  I just hope it is a reliable one since there is no local dealer and they will have to drive about an hour or so to the closest dealer.

         My parents have had a couple of really rough years health-wise…so, it is nice to see something positive going on for them.  With the price of gas it will be a good thing to have a car that is economical.

          Whenever i have gotten a new car…it is always a simple joy just to get into the vehicle and smell that new car smell; that is until a couple of years ago, i watched a news program that told me how unhealthy it was.  That smell is released by the chemicals in the vinyl and plastics as they heat up in the new vehicle. 

           Awckkkkk…all the really fun, tasty, enjoyable things in life aren’t supposed to be good for us…so we take pleasure in the things we can.   So, as soon as it warms up…they will be cruisin’ with the windows down, radio on and just enjoying the freedom.   Now that is joy; go Mom and Dad!

       Poor, Petulant Petra is a black swan who lives in Germany.  She made news headlines last year by forming a romantic interest in a large, wooden, swan- shaped paddleboat.  Side- by- side they stayed together; Petra and the large paddleboat.  She refused to leave the boat’s side.  So, a zoo accomodated Petra and the paddleboat for the winter.

          Petra developed a relationship with a real live white swan recently.    So the swan paddleboat was returned to its owner.  This past week, the real live (small) swan left Petra. 

          Now, whether the small, white swan had size related self- esteem issues; or, whether Petra is incapable of forming a healthy relationship within her species…she is once again reunited with her beloved large white wooden swan.   Hmmmm…maybe size really does matter…or …maybe Petra needs to enter into some sort of therapy.   She may be experiencing an attachment disorder :).   

      Then again, who knows…maybe the small white swan got tired of being compared to her larger than life “ex”; and therefore, decided to move on. 

      After all…there is nothing worse than being compared to an “ex” who is incapable of giving in a relationship; and, STILL COME OUT LACKING IN THE COMPARISON!  LOL
