Who Knew about Fruits and Vegetables?

Perhaps I should go back and take biology again. I thought I knew what a fruit and what a vegetable were….but I was wrong, or was I?

Technically speaking, in scientific terms, if it has seeds, it’s a fruit. By those terms, the following are fruit: pumpkins, cucumbers, squash, green beans, and bell peppers.

However, if you are speaking in culinary terms, they are vegetables.

Get this, the US Supreme Court said a tomato is a vegetable, even though technically it’s a botanical fruit.

Crazy huh? Check this site out for more info: Fruit or Vege?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

There once was a dog named Bailey,

If left alone she will wail-hee.

She’s awfully sweet;

I’m sure you will meet;

We’re thankful for our beagle daily.

Have a Lucky Day!

Hobbl’n Along

Sean is now off his crutches. It was an interesting week as it was icy outside, which made hobbling on crutches that much more treacherous. He was coming home from the second leg of his 10 mile run (after 8 he comes home to pick up Bailey). It was out in the back alley where he slipped on an icy patch and fell on his leg (knee and ankle). Thank goodness he was so close to home because it was pretty bad. After having Nurse Paddy come over to take a look, we decided to head to urgent care for X-rays. They said it was a sprain, gave us an air cast and crutches, and sent us home.

It’s been over a week and he is now walking “limping” without the crutches and making progress. They said the most dangerous time after a sprain is the first week because people tend to re injure and make it recovery worse. His big concern is his training as he plans to run Grandma’s this year.
