A large group of bloggers throughout the U.S. will be observing a day of silence for those in Connecticut on Monday, Dec. 17. We will post this image on our sites, rather than any planned blog posts to show solidarity with the families and victims.
This week, my mommy and daddy have orientation at my doggie school. I’m enrolled in a class called “Diamonds in the Ruff” at the MSPCA for eight weeks. I’m a little afraid of other dogs and some people, so this class — we hope — is going to get me more comfortable around some other four-legged friends.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love chasing after my daddy outside and he’s really good at tug ‘o war. But, my mommy likes fall a whole bunch, too. This is one of her favorite times of year to bake things. So, she made me some really awesome homemade baked doggie treats. Let’s see how she made ’em…
If you’re a regular reader to the blog, you’ll know that sometimes we discuss my own personal health struggles living with fibromyalgia, chronic anemia and migraines. But today we venture away from those ailments to hear from Jillian McKee, an advocate from the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. She has healthy eating tips for people with cancer.
Unfortunately, in today’s world one of the sad realities is that most people in some way have been affected by cancer. It has either taken away a loved one or a friend, or affected him/her personally. For me, my husband’s mother was taken by the evil C-word when he was a child. It also recently stunned the life of a dear friend.
While there is no cure for cancer, there are treatments to help combat it. But after the chemo and other therapies of modern medicine, some times people want to try other methods to improve their life and well-being. There are complementary and alternative treatments – such as dietary changes – to help a person be more proactive and take control of his or her health.
Take it away, Jillian…
Let’s take a trip back in time to the The Land Pavilion at Epcot circa 1993. Even then, I thought Sunshine Seasons delivered one of Walt Disney World Resort’s best varieties for quick dining choices for its guests.
I still recall one of my favorite meals ever at WDW – a slab of veggie lasagna (the version here started my obsession with the pasta dish), filled with hearty chunks of broccoli and zucchini in a flavorful red sauce. On the side, a strawberry and cream slushy with gummi bears mixed in. The swirls of frothy red with silky white cream and little gelatinous bears are an image that I still wish I could get when I’m down at Disney.
Flash forward to 2012, the updated Sunshine Seasons is now more of a food court, where you can grab just about anything to make even the pickiest of eaters happy. That’s why I think it’s always busy here, no matter the time of day. (It probably also helps that Soarin’ is always jam-packed next door, too…)
So, let’s take a look at one of the best eating spots in all of Walt Disney World…
I’m taking a little break from blogging right now but I’ll be back soon. Just catching up on some posts and recovering from a little stomach bug!
I hope I won’t be gone for long!
Until then, here are some interesting finds across the web to keep you interested ’til my return:
- Cupcake Vending Machine: How Does It Work? (video) from the Huffington Post
- 1,470-calorie sandwich comes to Wisconsin from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Oh, how I miss the Cousins Subs…)
- No More Warm Chocolate Chip Cookies On That Flight via Fox News (Guess which airline I won’t be flying back to MKE…)
