Amazon services and google chrome

Apparently google changed something in the Chrome browser on my Chromebook. The change mans both and both complain I’m not using a supported browser.

So I guess my next phone call will go to Google. And find out what the hell they did. It’s irritating progress doesn’t necessarily mean a better product.

When even AARP gets it so wrong

Received this one from the AARP – Super Foods that those over 50 should eat. Let me clear whilst i agree with most of the list the lean meat and low fat thing bothers the hell out of me.

It goes back to when I worked at a Grocery scoring company. We quickly figured out if it had salt, fat or sugar the scores would plummet. But the thing is all things in moderation fat, and salt of course. Less than 30g of sugar per day.

But it irritates me the constant attacks on dietary fat – it’s been this way ever since the late 1960’s when the medical establishment thought fats were very bad. That has of course has been proven so wrong.

Dinner this evening

Asparagus Salad with Salmon. Now the salad:

Bunch of Asparagus bottoms trimmed off. And chopped into inch or two pieces. I put them in a steaming basket and steamed it for about five minutes.

Then I made the dressing – microplaned some garlic into olive oil, along with some red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Then some lemon juice and some white wine vinegar. Along with a tablespoon of Dijon mustard, and some salt and pepper.

The salad itself, it has the asparagus, peas, sliced radishes, sliced cherry or grape tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese.

Also got some salmon and seasoned with salt and pepper – ten minutes is all it took in a little bit of olive oil.

I gotta say – this one is a keeper. And to think all because of Downton Abbey. It’s funny the time period it’s set in is roughly 100 years ago. Consider 100 years ago it was 1921 – radio had just started taking off.

PG (Proctor and Gamble) Ads on Spotify

So I keep hearing the Widen the Screen ads. It’s P&G or PG trying to pander it seems to me. But then I got curious I went and looked up PG brands.There are quite a few in this house. From oral care to laundry detergent yup, all PG products.

It gets worse though. I kind of have a thing for Bounty paper towels. And of course it’s also a PG brand.

When you go an research it there are just a few corporate entities that control everything. Take Mars for example – they are into everything.

But here’s something else – did you know there are only two canning companies in the U.S. ? Yeah I know – every canned food you buy came from one of those two plants.

It’s no wonder the food web is so fragile – there’s such consolidation of power.
