This blog is for my friend seaside. When making a spinach casserole you want to make sure that you use Popeye brand canned spinach. Why? Because who else would know more about spinach than Popeye? And besides, don’t you want to grow up big and strong? By the way, they sell Popeye canned spinach at Wal-Mart. Both whole leaf and chopped leaf. We eat Popeye spinach from time to time and it is pretty good. Plus Popeye has a famous saying which I take to heart, “I am what I am.” That saying has a lot of meaning to me and I could write for hours on it. Basically it means that I am not perfect and people should accept me as I am. I cannot please everyone and so I just have to be myself. I make no excuses for the way I am because that is just the way that I happened to turn out. For me the Popeye saying takes away the guilt if I don’t live up to the expectations of others because, in general, I am happy with myself. Everyone have a great day. Lew

Reading this entry reminded me of the movie version of "Popeye" with Robin Williams and Shelly Duvall. It had been awhile ,since I seen the movie so I forgot the plot. I just remember small fragments. If they show it on television, I would try and see some of it again to see if I could remember it. Do you remember Gilligan's Island when Gilligan ate the spinach from the seeds he planted from the box he found? It turned out the seeds were radioactive so he could lift more than the average man was able. It also made the Skipper very jealous of Gilligan. I love the old television shows.
