Maybe jumping the gun a little? But look how Christmas starts being advertised right after Halloween now, with Thanksgiving (which is not such an important sales time except maybe for certain food products) just shuffled in there.
I guess this is another example of that old saw, "You pays your money, you takes your choice."

If you have to drink Pepsi ( or Coke--by the way, Diet is no better, that phosphoric acid will get you on its own)-- do it in reasonable gulps ( not big gulps, which will give you gas and probably acid reflux as well). Then brush your teeth with an enamel fortifying toothpaste afterwards.
I am not the kind of person to ban any kind of food or drink ( Mayor Bloomberg has a Napoleonic complex about laying down any law he chooses --to ban large soft drink servings etc.--also effect of pompous billionaire surrounded always by squads of "yes-men")--but believe
people should know about the consequences they face.

While I would disagree with his assessment of Americans as not "honest" enough ( he likes what he considers the honesty of Germans, say, who will tell you in no uncertain terms if they think you are too fat or are not smelling good--"Americans are too polite--too politically correct to tell you things like that," he says...)
But he is certainly right on with his dismay of American cliche words and phrases, and particularly a society in which it seems everybody and everything is "Awesome!"
I recently saw some pictures of the flight deck of the Endeavour space craft which were something way beyond what we usually see and were , for once, really awesome....

Was out today with terrible aches and pains ( doctor has no idea what it is...I went online and it is MAYBE Fibromyalgia --will have to keep tabs on it--but enough of this, aches and pains of geezers like me are not much fun to read about)
Must try this place out for the back and foot rub!! ( Midtown full of course with similar places).
Just signed up for Restorative and Meditative Yoga classes which I will begin as soon as weather allows...
Looks like NYC will get off relatively easy from this blizzard as compared to Boston...where they expect several feet of snow.
Will be out tomorrow to get some snow pix.

Note that parents now let their kids play alone to some extent in place where drug dealers used to hang out...however, St. Gaudens Playground up the Avenue still has very strict rules that adults can only be there to accompany children and often have a guard coming around to keep an eye on the place. This is still NYC, of course.
