  1. It might be a hopeless cliche, but being Dutch, I am a big fan of Cheese. Ironically, my favorite kind is actually the Greek miracle know generally and universally as Feta (or Goat’s cheese).

  2. One more Good Thing about coffee; it helps me stave off head & jaw pain, AKA stress headaches. Not sure if it thins blood or expands blood vessels.

    Your results may vary.

  3. Love cheese. It’s one of the major food groups. But the odor thing is so true. Parmesan can trigger a “Mmmm” or “Oooo, vomit!”. Cheddar Parmesan is one of my faves. Hard to find though.

  4. I’ve only known two people who didn’t like cheese, one of my uncles’ and Dr Jo. She said she hated cheese but loved pizza and pimento cheese sandwiches. Dr Jo didn’t acknowledge the irony. My Uncle Herman wouldn’t even eat pizza.

    I have several favorite cheeses: Parmesan, Mozzarella, Cream, Ricotta, Feta, Blue Cheese, Sharp Cheddar, and Gouda. I’m not sure I’ve met a cheese I didn’t like. However, I’ve never had the smelly cheeses, so I can’t say for sure if I’d like those.

    I’ve never had Sakura but I’d give it a go.

  5. Again, that was a nail biting Mars landing. Now am curious about the Mars helicopter …

    I love cheese, especially soft cheese and all kinds of stinky cheese, so much so that my mom was thinking of disowning me. LOL.

    The pink curry looks weird.

    I always believe spinach can protect us from a lot of things.
    Recently, my TCM doctor friend suggested I add Manuka honey to my diet … Apparently it has “special healing power” and can boost immune system. Quite expensive though!
