They say this is the best time of year to go on a diet. Surely you will not gain weight if you consume smart and light.

What? Not fun? We wait for this time of year for the goodies, family and recipes that make us feel good.

But, the main thing is to begin this season with a sense and message of gratitude and thanks for all we have and the hope and help we can give others who may be in tough times. Remember a charity or a friend.

Warren Buffett.

He has a portfolio rich in American companies. Including rich chocolate. I LOVE See's Candies and eat one piece just about daily.

Snow is good. Hoping it's a wet snow! Do the Fuchsia's make it through the snow season. Gosh I miss those plants ... they were SO easy to grow in San Francisco!

Campbell's SOUP owns Godiva. Go figga. It's not near as good as it used to be.

I did not know that Campbells now owns Godiva... when did that happen? I haven't had Godiva chocs in a long time, but I used to love them.

Very wet snow, I had to dig out the heavy duty winter waterproof boots today... that after my Fall boots let ice water seep through...

And the fuchsia is not looking very happy. I've never been able to overwinter one yet, but still I try.

WHOOPS!
Campbell's sold Godiva in 2007 to a Turkish company. I didn't know that! Amazing huh. It was once the stellar Belgian owned premier chocolate company!

Grateful here too. Love the rain.

I have allergies from something! Does anyone know what it might be? I normally never get allergies but it's making me could. Not a cold for sure.

I was at a dinner party last night and we sat outdoors by a fire pit (smoke allergies?) and had a wonderful meal of freshly grilled salmon, salad and potatoes. I had one glass of Riesling. I woke up couching and did the same thing two weeks ago after I was outside.
