Minor disasters

Discovered that my Bonne Maman strawberry jam, new two weeks ago, had gone moldy. So much for 'sugar is a preservative'. Jam belongs in the fridge, period. So opened my new Bonne Maman Four Fruits Preserve, bought because they were out of strawberry and only had cherry or plum or fig which are all no thank you. Discover that Four Fruits contains cherries, yuck.

Weather page calling for gusty winds this afternoon, decided to cab it to acupuncture, discovered I had no reception on the phone. Country-wide outage at Rogers, the *other* communictions behemoth. Could call from landline but getting back would require flagging a cab and I only trust one company. So biked. Fortunately wind gusts were at my back most of the way. Left bike outside but must hump it up the stairs before the snow starts tomorrow.

In spite of acupuncture, ache all day as pressure yoyos about. Drank gin, did not exercise, there is no health within us.
