Smile! You’re at the best site ever


Oh the weather outside is frightful,

but the fire is so delightful,

And since we have no place to go,

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!’

Would believe it if I told you, the lyrics of this famous song was written in 1945,  during a hot summer in California by Sammy Cahn and Julie Styne.

Writing about the snow during the heat of summer, is – as my mother used to say, ‘really  thinking outside the box!’My mother loved to think positive and big and if she were around today she would be spreading  words of comfort to those of you, whose  homes and businesses are at risk of becoming   flooded at the moment. She like Teresa Mannion would say’ Don’t make unnecessary journeys, don’t take risks on treacherous roads’. Stay at home, she would persistently urge  and   prepare  nourishing  drinks to keep you warm and strong to face what challenges that may lie ahead.

She  called her favorite nourishing  drink    Zingy  Zip idée, which she believed, soothed all ailments especially those brought on by the cold weather.

This drink  is very easy to do and only takes a few moments to prepare.

It consists of the following ingredients which are blended  together  in a juicer

  • Six apples, unpeeled.
  • Two bananas.
  • One teaspoon of smooth peanut butter.

It is a delight to  drink and is brimming with slow releasing sugar . The apples give the body an instant boost and the the bananas slow release of  sugar keeps the body energized throughout the day. Peanut butter is high in protein, iron, magnesium, vitamin C and folic acid; All of which is necessary  to maintain  the body at optimal health.

Note to self.


I will be up bright and early tomorrow Monday,  thinking about all of you my children.

Unfortunately however, I will not be close to a computer as I need to spend time meeting family and friends in person as you do during  this time of peace and goodwill.

This post is my replacement of my early Monday Morning  Post guys and I hope that is OK with You?

In the meantime it might be interesting  if you prepared my mammy’s  zingy Zip idee  juice today and bring it to work in the morning.

I would love to know how you got on 

Stay well and keep warm my friends in this terrible wet weather.

Hugs and love,
