There is a strong possibility that most of us have been opening our bananas from the wrong end. If we take a good look at our primate friends, we might marvel at their efficiency and shake our heads at the frustrating way we open bananas, by bending, biting, and even digging a finger or thumb into the stem end and many times ending up with a mushy mess. All in all, it is really easier to open a banana from the end-end or upside down end than the stem end. By taking this new approach one eliminates the squashing that usually occurs, and there are fewer strings, and you even have a handle (stem) to hold your banana. Just remember, no matter what your approach, health wise we all benefit by eating at least one banana every day. Good for fiber, potassium and a great way for preventing constipation.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
