Happy National Grouch Day!

Today, October 15, is National Grouch Day!

If you are a grouch, today is your special day!

  • It was created for all grouches to celebrate their way of life. Grumps that give backhanded compliments. Those people that are disturbed by noise, silence, and most general activities to include blogging itself. These things make true grouches generally unpleasant.

As per Merriam-Webster dictionary, a grouch is described as

  • a person who complains frequently or constantly or
  • a habitually irritable or complaining person.

(Hell! That describes half of my followers and maybe even me!)

To honor the world’s favorite grouch, Oscar, from “Sesame Street,” National Grouch Day was created on October 15.

So embrace your inner grouch on this day. Knowing that no mere mortal can stop you from complaining, being irritable, or wallowing in misery.

Because that is what grouches do!

Also, this day teaches us that it’s good to spend time processing our negative emotions. So post jokes, memes, funny photos, and stories.

And get the hell out of my way!

A Very Healthy Saturday Morning Brew!i

What a way to start your typical day.

I do say!

A Slow Lemon Fizz:

Start with a cup containing 3-4 oz of water:

Then add:

1/2 tsp of Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

a hefty tsp of 100% Certified Organic Raw Honey

Heat for two to three minutes

That should do the trick!

Add a scoop of Magnesium Lemon Fizz

Watch it fizz

Stir and beat down that damn overflowing fizz as necessary!

Add more water or Green Tea

and maybe a dark chocolate truffle you see!



Then take a pee……


Like most,

you probably



did not see

what was going on

in the photo above!


We look

but rarely really see.

That’s why

we often

make a mess


we do pee!


There are ants everywhere…

Even planting a victory flag

after having climbed

Mount Everplant!

And a cute lemon

wishing you

a Nice Day!

As Carlo Espiritu did say!

The Colors of Korea 🇰🇷

In 1969, the United States of America landed a man on the Moon. That same year, the USAF landed me in Taegu, South Korea.

What are the traditional colors of Korea?

White: The most commonly used color in Korea. Koreans were sometimes referred to as “the white clad people.” The color white symbolizes purity, innocence, peace and patriotism. Traditionally, white represents the element metal and the direction West.

Black: The color black is associated with mastery and the ending point of a cycle in Korea. It represents the darkness after mastery has been achieved, the place beyond light. However, because Koreans believe that everything is based on a balance of opposites, darkness is also necessary as an origin of light. Black refers to the element water and direction North.

Blue: The color blue is associated with the element wood and the direction East. In the Korean flag, blue symbolizes eum or yin, which is cool, feminine energy. Eum energy is associated with the moon and is passive, yielding and receptive. Blue is balanced by red in the Korean flag. Whereas red represents life, blue represents its opposite, death.

Red: Traditionally red is associated with fire and the southern direction. Red is symbolized by yin energy, which represents masculine energy, the sun and life force. In the Korean flag, red is balanced by the opposite color, blue. The color red also symbolizes passion and, historically, it was inappropriate for Koreans to wear red. However, in modern Korea, red is associated with a passion for sports and it is common to wear red to sporting events to show support.

Yellow: The color yellow symbolizes earth and the center direction. It represents the starting point developing knowledge and expanding the mind. As one of the five cardinal colors, yellow was traditionally worn, along with the other four colors, as part of a stripe on Korean clothing. Wearing the five-color stripe was historically thought to give children and royalty protection from evil spirits.

Green: Blue and green were traditionally represented by a single word in Hangul, the Korean language. Western influence brought a change in the view that green and blue are variations of a single color and separate words for each color now exist in Hangul. Currently, the color green symbolizes prosperity, a fresh start and auspicious beginnings. Many Korean storefronts are green to draw prosperity and success to the business.
