Saturday morning at Torrance Farmers Market

Long time readers know that I took up juicing about 18 months ago. When Tanya would come out I would offer a taste of the concoctions I made, but her reaction was along the lines of it was not terrible. She was not impressed. A few weeks after she moved in, someone mentioned the movie, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” It seems like she immediately went to Netflix and put it on my streaming list. We watched the movie that night. The next day, Tanya asked if I would show her how to use the juicer. As you can imagine, I was more than happy to do so and she has been juicing us up daily. It is great.

One of the advantages to living here is that not only can you go walk around the Farmers Market on a sunny January morning in a t-shirt, but that same warmth and sunshine makes for some great looking fruits and vegetables.

There have been several major changes in my life since October, and carrying around a “purse” is but a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. But like I said, I am okay with it. If I am going to live with RA, and I am, there are going to be some changes around here.

The Eternal Smile

I know before you started reading this you had to have noticed the lovely young lady pictured above. One might look at the photo, see the smile and immediately think this appears to be a very happy person. A closer look at the eyes reveals that while this person appears happy, there is also a tiredness that can not be hidden by makeup. Only a large pair of sunglasses can hide this. This is my girlfriend Tanya, and she has Rheumatoid Arthritis, otherwise known as RA, Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease or RAD. Continue reading
