The "I's" have it-tude

Ice Cream: vanilla with chocolate sauce. Vanilla with caramel sauce. or ribbons of chocolate. or ribbons of caramel. Or Chocolate. Chocolate with chocolate. Ice cream. I eat a little almost every day. yum. Lately m favorite is the gelato place, which makes low fat ice cream in many flavors....my favorites: watermelon and mango. Ice cream is source of delight, a simple pleasure, gratitude at the end of a long day.

Ice: when I lived in the Midwest I never put ice in any beverage. But here in the heat of desert....I put ice in everything - coffee, tea, water...and I have developed a tendency to eat it too....I mean really, when it's 106 outside, I am sooo grateful for ice.

Internet: just goes without saying. I almost live on it. Almost. I am grateful for the speed at which I can do research, get information, connect with family and friends.
