    Absolutely!:thumbup: Learning a new language is my forte. Swinging is enthralling after watching Ryan and Emma in La La Land(swing dancing) :). Airbnb and Brunch club/Supper crew are in vogue here where I live currently.

    I love reviewing things, like products I use or books/movies I've read/watched.

    People watching. This article talks about how to begin this hobby and the uses and benefits: How to Begin People Watching

    It can be done whenever one is waiting for something, such as in the car waiting for the stop light to turn green, in a function/performance where one is not interested in all the performances, check-out line at the grocery store.

    When people-watching from one's car at a stop light, be careful so as to not cause a road-rage incident while stationary! At the grocery store, compare and contrast the self-check out line with the not-self-checkout line (the people, their expressions and body language). At functions where parents are gathered to watch their children perform, check who records the performance (mom or dad) and who watches it with the eyes rather than through a phone's camera.

    And my favorite place to people-watch: Starbucks. To continue my search for an answer to this question: why would anyone pay $1 + sales tax for one banana? Often a sad looking one whose dark brown spots seem to multiply even as I watch it and the customers who pass it.

    @Rihana Well...there is always someone watching you...on IL it is called a "follow"ing.

    here is a quote for you:
    You can observe a lot by just watching.
    - Yogi Berra


    PS <lifted from wikipedia entry on Yogi Berra>> Though very few of the quotes attributed to Berra are malapropisms, Berra's apparently unintentionally humorous statements have been mistakenly labeled as such by some writers.

    It is best to avoid the banana that is getting sweeter by the minute....when one is on a low carb/sugar diet.

    here is the good-bad-ugly of the spotted banana. (excerpt from livestrong.com)
    Before you throw out a banana because it has turned brown and seems past its eating prime, consider the potential nutritional benefits it provides. A brown banana has a higher level of antioxidants than yellow or green, unripe bananas. It's also easier to digest for people with digestive ailments, including irritable bowel and functional abdominal bloating.


    Nutrient Density
    A brown, yellow or green banana are all a good source of potassium, vitamin B-6 and fiber. As a banana reaches the brown stage, its concentration of antioxidants increases. Antioxidants are important in helping protect your body against disease-causing inflammation. As bananas turn brown, some of the micronutrients present do diminish. Store ripe bananas in the refrigerator to reduce this loss.


    High Sugar

    In brown bananas, the resistant starch has almost completely transformed into simple sugars. When you eat a brown banana, you're blood sugar spikes more quickly than it would when you eat a green one. Type-2 diabetics are thus recommended to avoid brown-spotted or fully brown bananas, which are mostly sugar. Less ripe bananas are healthier for people who are trying to cut back on sugar.

    Yes hobbies are very important specially as we grow older. Just today talking about this. It is important that we should have atleast three hobbies or interests and they should be of the different senses, like hearing music or creating something with our hands or reading or writing. This will definitely help us. Regards, Lakshmi Bhat
