Lynette began her physical therapy the other day and her pain seems to be easing a bit. Thanks for your kind thoughts.
I've been having some computer problems this week. I'm running Windows 7 on my desktop. I'll be switching to Windows 10 on a laptop soon. I've never had a laptop and like the idea of its portability.
Now I want to erase any duplicate files on my old PC before I transfer my photos and files to my new laptop. I've come across several ways to do this and this weekend I want to try it. First I want to get a little used to Windows 10.
"Many of us have fond memories of roasting these delicious nuggets after carving the Jack o’ lantern, but most of us never realized just how good (and good for us) they were. But surprisingly, pumpkin seeds have been valued for their dietary and medicinal properties for thousands of years. In fact, pumpkin seeds have been traced back as far as 7000 BC, according to archeologists excavating a tomb in central Mexico.
Among other civilizations, the Aztecs and Mayans were believed to revere pumpkin seeds as an important and powerful source of food and nutrition. As it turns out they were on to something – In a comparison to other nuts and seeds, Pumpkin Seeds are one of the most nutritious plant-based foods. A quarter cup serving alone includes an immune-boosting 17% of an adult’s daily allowance of zinc and a powerful red blood cell-supporting 15% of the iron needed.
This little seed also has a whopping 8.5 grams of complete plant-based protein in just 1 ounce. Ounce for ounce, that’s 2.5 times more protein than a hard-boiled egg. These flavorful bites have much more to offer including a plentiful helping of minerals with over 40% of the RDI of magnesium, phosphorus, and manganese, essential nutrients that aid in overall body function.
Pumpkin seeds without shells, also known as pepitas, provide an even better standalone snack especially those that are dry roasted and with flavor."
Luckily Lynette only sprained her ankles when she fell down the concrete steps leading to our backyard. I thought both of her ankles were broken. She could not stand so I called 911, just in case it was more serious. They took her to the emergency room. X-rays showed no broken bones.
On the way home from the hospital we picked up some Mexican take-out to celebrate.
Now it's time to get into our pajamas and watch TV.
Tomorrow should be better.
Wikipedia: Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volksfest. Held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, it is a 16- to 18-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name for the fairgrounds, Theresa's meadows. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since the year 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modelled after the original Munich event.
The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 to celebrate the October 12th marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to the Saxon-Hildburghausen Princess Therese. The citizens of Munich were invited to join in the festivities which were held over five days on the fields in front of the city gates.Wikipedia
I always thought it was to celebrate the end of season harvest.
