On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. This invasion was the first military action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Korea’s behalf. As far as American officials were concerned, it was a war against the forces of international communism itself. After some early back-and-forth across the 38th parallel, the fighting stalled and casualties mounted with nothing to show for them. Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans. The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III. Finally, in July 1953, the Korean War came to an end. In all, some 5 million soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the war. The Korean peninsula is still divided today. 4 months ago
I will be having juice in the morning and for lunch tomorrow. I will also try to have a juicing and detoxing day all Sunday. Not in 2 days in a row but this is how it can be this week. 4 months ago
I will be ticking this goal as done soon. But before I do that I would like to write down how I feel I have done with this goal this year. I am really happy with my progress with this goal in 2012. Everything I have done this year I owe it to having a healthy lifetime habits. But of course like any other human beings I had bad times too. There were times that I didn’t feel like exercising or did not eat the most nutritious food. Especially when I fell ill or when I felt low. And on holidays too. But, I am not worried about the holidays as you don’t want to restrict yourself on the things you love eating and drinking during holidays. Healthy living is important but enjoying life is equally important.
I will not have this goal as a yearly goal in 2013. I will probably break exercising and eating goals weekly instead. I find better to have short term goals. I believe this would be better to recover from falls and will help with getting motivated quicker too.
Yeah, I did great this year, Kept an eye on what I ate and drank and had my regular exercisings just fine. 4 months ago
And I hope I will be lucky enough to share all of those upcoming happy and exciting times with you next year too :-)
You have been a great friend to me. Thank You T.

I have been thinking exactly the same recently and found out that Advocaat is similar to eggnog and purchased a bottle last week.
I agree eggnog is not appreciated in the UK but I like it. Hope you buy or make it yourself. Either way hope you will like it. :-) 5 months ago
It is nearly the end of the year and I guess I can mark this goal as done. I have had a great year in 2012. I did great things just as I hoped. I travelled to the new places, and I had a fab. summer holiday. Travelling is always on the top of my list :-)
Visited lots of museums and exhibitions. I went to the theatres to see wonderful plays and watched a musical. Plus went to a concert of Don McLean and listened to his beautifully soft voice. I had very tasty foods with friends and with my partner. I tasted better wines from different grapes that I hadn’t tried before. I also had the best and most different variety of coffees this year too. And I watched 70+ movies in 2012.
I did most of the things that I planned to do this year. The things I could not work on will have to wait until 2013. Because I am going to find time for those that I could not manage to fit in my schedule for one or another reason in 2012.
Hope next year will be as good as this year. 5 months ago

Today I went to the gym. I feel great after 50 minutes good work out. 5 months ago
We had to decide between Xi-an and Guilin. The time is an issue and this whole trip is very expensive. So we can only go to one other place other than Beijing. And we decided to go to Guilin. We booked 3 days private tour to Guilin yesterday. We try not to have tours arranged by travel agencies as we like to do our own things in our ways. But we are changing the rules for China.
And, I knew China was big but the flight time between Beijing and Guilin is 3 hours! How big China is beyond my imagination.
And I am so looking forward to it all. Happy days :-) 5 months ago
I am only doing little. Normally I go to the gym 5 x a week early in the mornings. What I have been doing in the name of exercising in these days are nothing. But better than doing nothing. You reckon we’d do better if we lived close? I mean we could motivate each other ;-)
I will send you an e-mail soon T. Bed time for me. Enjoy the rest of the w-end. 5 months ago
All planned and all the ingredients are in the fridge. 5 months ago
Did pilates at home this evening. And if I didn’t have this goal here on 43 I wouldn’t have done anything. It’s one of those days that I wanted to be in pyjamas watching one movie after an other. And have a nap between :-o
Thank You 43 things site :-) 5 months ago

Like you TG, I had hard contacts 25 years ago myself. And I hated them. And I gave up on the idea wearing contacts until a few years back when a friend suggested that I should have a visit to the optometrist. And I did. I am glad I did. I have high astigmatism and in the past the only option was to wear hard ones. But they made a great progress with contact lenses now and I am wearing soft contact lenses with no trouble at all and I could not live without them.
Hope they work for you Pankreas24601. 5 months ago
