Good Morning . . .

Wow . . . this thread just moves soooooo fast . . . I'll probbly never be able to actually keep up . . . but I do enjoy trying . . .

Glad that Friday the 13th is behind us again . . . yesterday was not one of my better days and I ate 700 calories of Aero Dark just to prove it . . . boy it was tasty. Anyway, today is already looking better because our humidity has dropped back to a tolerable level . . . and there's no more chocolate in the house.

My chocolate indulgence reminded me of this little FFFF for today . . .

Between the ages of 30 and 80, we lose 64% of our tastebuds, but our sense of taste still manages to outlast the accuity of all our other senses over our lifetime. Our taste buds are so finely tuned they can detect sweetness at 1 part in 200 and sourness at 1 part in 130,000. The sensitivity to sour probably developed as a protective measure since poisonous foods are more often bitter or sour than sweet.


Okay gang . . . keep things moving and shaking today . . . see you soon.
