Where do pickles come from? Do you know? Oddly to me, there are more than a few people who don’t know. In fact, they think pickles are grown as pickles…yes, you read that right.
They honestly think pickles in all their crunchy, salty, sour goodness are grown just like that.
I find it hard to believe and had I not had a completely honest discussion with a 30 year old fella, I wouldn’t have believed it.
Pickles are Cucumbers. A pickle is made by putting cucumbers in a jar or barrel with water, vinegar and spices. Then it sits for a time until the desired taste is achieved.
Here is a video I found, there are dozens more so please Educate yourself: How to make pickles
The next couple of post topics came from my discussion with this young man…he really didn’t know pickles were cucumbers.
Please educate yourselves…
So I was inspired to write a bunch of topics down for my new posts and this was one of them.
While driving to work one morning, it occurred to me that sometimes you need to make a split second decision leaving no time to “signal” first.
This thought led to, “damn, isn’t that true to life?”
I like to keep things fluid, I learned early you really can’t be so rigid with your plans. It’s great to have a plan and general direction but life has a way of throwing debris in front of you.
This debris can be anything from a small object or issue, or a huge life altering event. Hindsight being what it is, for me, you have to expect the unexpected.
This leads to my favorite saying “Improvise, Overcome and Adapt” which then leads to my second favorite “Go where the road takes you; you just never know where you’ll end up”.
I feel like someone needs to hear this today.
Please reach out if you’d like to chat.
Heres some of my favorite pictures I took this past weekend:
