I was urged to post this on this forum. It is from an OP of mine in the Lounge

Just in case, I need to make it clear that I have a heart condition, and that my wife cooks with very little fat or grease. Usually olive oil only, little to no butter.

After a rather unpleasant, and quite prolonged, trip back home, my wife had waited with dinner. But she was getting hungry (as was I anyway), and so started cooking as soon as I got home. She made what is called "sea-salmon" here. It is not salmon at all, but a white fish which (I think) is called pollock in the USA. It was sautéed with chives and lemon, and some finely chopped ginger. She also made a pan of sautéed chopped zucchini enhanced by lightly browned onions and slivered garlic. A small arugula salad was on the side with some grated cheese, and dessert was some Quark with fresh sliced strawberries and a little Canadian maple syrup poured over it. The fish had been on sale, and the whole meal cost under €2.50 euros each. How's THAT to put me back in a good mood??

5. Whatever else may befall me

No one can take away the years I have had with them.

Contrary to prevailing Republican philosophy, some riches cannot be counted in monetary terms.

6. That is one of the things that I love, is how much you and your family cherish and appreciate

Each other. Makes this old cynic happy to know that there really are such families.
