Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

I had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes. I seen him in the store a week or two before he passed and he was out of it. I googled both their names when I did n…

Clif Bar Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Since I am local to the new Twin Falls Idaho Clif Bar bakery, they had a ribbon cutting ceremony. It was on the community section of the news so I had to go and check it out.

I had a hard time finding the location. The other half, who grew up here, didn't know where the street was so we spent a little bit of time trying to drive to the building. The other half said this road didn't exists in in 1989 :-/

But we made it. There was quite the crowd. There was a huge line for Clif Bar bags, water bottles, hats, shirts - which I got none of - but I did get a bunch of Clif Bars!

Did you know Clif makes wine, too?

Cab, yum!
I tried 3 varieties, but I preferred the Cab. If you like a spicy, peppery red, the Zin was good but a little too spicy for my palate.

Wine Snacks
Clif also makes snacks to pair with the wines. Seasoned almonds (I think Cayenne and basil), cashews, and caramel covered chocolates. SO good. The cheese on the bread was a pineapple goat cheese. I am not a goat fan but the flavor was so good enough that I was OK with it.

We watched the ribbon cutting from the main food line.

What was weird was that there was not enough of anything for everyone. We got the last of the bottled water and pops. They also had an iberico ham. Do you know how freakin' expensive that shizit it?!?! The little hillbilly kids didn't get the point of the ham. So the ground was covered in those ham bits because they threw them down instead of eat them. I don't like prosciutto, but this ham was good. It was good on that rosemary bread on the lower left of my plate.

Those hams are $300+ and each bite was basically $1.00. So much money wasted from people throwing it on the ground.

The outdoor spirit is strong here.

I think there is some major benefit from Clif Bar being in the area. If it was not 20 miles from my house and basically an hour commute everyday, I would consider a job there. The give there employees some impressive benefits, like race reimbursements. I would totally work there for that.

Do you like Clif Bars? What is your favorite flavor?
