I am in Pittsburgh with my family for a week because of work. Let say it easier to stay with them, then drive an hour and a half each day. Plus it nice spending a week with them when not a vacation!
With this winter weather, I came in on Friday night. Saturday, thanks to Facebook, I posted about coming home on it, I ended up meeting people I went to high school with. I have not seen these people in 20 years. It was interesting the little lunch date I had with them.
How we change as we get older. The stories and views we had then. I learned about some tragedies that have happened to some of our former classmates. How there was a 10-year reunion, I had no knowledge of.
Which they did say was very ill put together by what was the “click” in high school. They had it at a bar an not well planned at all. So I guess I didn’t miss much by what they were saying.
Something change and some things do not. It is amazing seeing that with these people. It good sometimes to catch up with the past.

Plus, February is heart healthy month, and salmon is very good for your heart. I am on the healthy kick, and I am trying to include more healthy recipes, at least that is a goal of mine.
