I've never rowed solo across the Atlantic

21-year-old UK teacher becomes youngest woman to row Atlantic solo
Jasmine Harrison, a part-time teacher and bartender from Thirsk, began the journey in December when she departed from La Gomera in the Canary Islands. It took her 70 days, three hours and 48 minutes to reach Antigua.




Bit of an extreme way of gong into quarantine.

Not something that anyone can do but rowing across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands - Caribbean is fairly common these days. Even my neighbour is halfway across at the moment. The boats and equipment are absolutely first class as is usually the support. Without a doubt the biggest thing would be the fear factor, the unknown but conquering that and the rest (if you are fit enough) would be straightforward. The weather is relatively benign also.The real test of a rower (and weather) is doing it from the States (usually Cap Cod to Ireland or Europe.

Put ketchup on a bacon sandwich. Anyone who does that is evil. It's wrong. It will always be wrong. It's HP or Daddies brown sauce and nothing else. Ever.

I have never given a monkey's what other people think about me dressing a bacon sarnie with ketchup.

What?! No L or T (as in, BLT - bacon, lettuce, tomato) ? There's something truly magical about a classic American BLT with (very) crispy US-style (streaky) bacon!

The best bacon sarnie, IMHO, has the bread very lightly fried in the bacon dripping, usually topped up with the saved dripping from non-sarnie bacon fry-up's... Cholesterol lowering tablets anyone?

I just had my annual physical. After 15+ years of decreasing cholesterol figures, I'm finally heading back up and I think I can safely say I know why! I've been drifting back into sausage, bacon, eggs, corned beef, burgers and more after a serious effort to focus more on Salmon. So ... it's back to several servings of salmon a week, and much less bacon and sausage meat! Lets see if it goes back down again ...

My husband took statins for a few years...then he decided to wean himself off them by changing his diet. It worked...his cholesterol figures have been good for several years.

I really enjoyed my modified diet, but with Covid I started buying Costco-sized packs of frozen Salmon portions rather than getting it fresh each time at the store, and after a while, I really stopped enjoying it as much! So it's time to start buying it fresh again ...

I buy a full salmon from Costco, slice it into hubby sized portions, then freeze it. He can’t tell the difference between the first few fresh slices and the remaining frozen ones. I usually cook it in foil, squirt a little lemon juice over it and a little salmon seasoning or salt and pepper.
