K-Earth Breakfast

Just a quicky with a couple of really bad pix.

In LA, K-Earth 101 is the premier oldies station, with DJ Charlie Tuna, a California staple for as long as I’ve been here (70’s). One of my co-workers at The Day Job won breakfast from the radio station, plus Antonio, who serenaded us with his guitar and some oldies but goodies.

First, Lori, the breakfast winner, called the station to record a conversation with Charlie Tuna. 12 or 15 of us stood around her desk. She had a handwritten sign on a file folder that said CLAP. When she held it up, we’d clap and cheer. Charlie asked her if she was in the middle of a coliseum! Pretty funny!

Around 11:45, Antonio and another friendly gentleman arrived with boxes of bagels, muffins and danish. I, the Slim Fast Diva, did not partake. Aren’t I self-satisfied… Did you notice I didn’t blog about weight loss this week? Groan… That’s for another day…

Anyway, Antonio started singing and he does have a lovely voice. People poured into the downstairs lunch room and scarfed all the foodie.

The president of the company happened to be out on the patio and when he came through the lunch room, had his picture taken with Antonio and Lori and declared it really good promotion for the company.

The highlight was a drawing for several free meal vouchers at El Torito restaurant. Here are some of the winners, among them (in the blue) my roommate, Trish.

It’s so much fun to have a break in the workday, especially when morale is so far in the toilet… So thanks to Lori and K-Earth 101 for some laughter, fun and goodies!

C’est la vie!

I don't know where you got the idea that you need to lose 40+ pounds! You look like you only need to lose 5!!

OK, well, I'm on the weight loss journey with you then! I only weigh myself once a week Saturday morning so as not to make myself crazy. I'm trying something different this time called Fast 5. You can look it up online at It's all about allowing your hormones to work properly so your body doesn't hold onto fat storage. So, far I have lost about 6 pounds in the past 5 weeks. Slow and steady.

I'll have to look up the Fast 5. Hang in!
