Viva la Watermelon

I have been craving watermelon lately—as you may have observed with my earlier July 4th post. Perhaps the word "craving" is putting it mildly. Nonetheless, "starving" would fail to convince anyone who has seen my well upholstered physique and "lusting" is far too strong. I have, however, been fantasizing about this luscious, pinkish-red, sweet dripping fruit. (Never mind that I also craved it during 2 of my pregnancies.)

Then, I received an email from
Newsmax.com with the headline, "Watermelons Work Like Viagra." I was on that email like hormones on chocolate! (Did I click the link? I don't recall.) Presto-chango, I was at the website and devouring every juicy detail. I'm not sure what my behavior says about me, but I'm willing to explore this matter...

The discovery deals with an ingredient called "
citrulline." You may read the article by clicking HERE.

That does look yummy - and so refreshing. I haven't had any yet this year. Maybe I need to head over to the farmer's market.

I heard about that! (not your hunger for watermelon that is...)
They could advertise it as "the Real Man's Fruit!"
Have you discovered these radio programs? So fun to listen to online. http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=35
