Verklempt Friday 7 September 2018

I love Gregg Whiteside of WRTI and I love WRTI as well. Every morning he hosts Breakfast With Bach and listeners can share their breakfasts, which Gregg will read on air. I know I talk a lot about gluten-free, but I do it to raise awareness. Apparently, I did because last Friday after Gregg read my breakfast on air (GF pumpkin spice waffles), someone e-mailed him to inquire about where I purchased the waffles. Gregg asked me, I told him I bought them at Wegmans; Wegmans and Trader Joes have the best selection of GF, and he thanked me.

These GF pumpkin spice waffles are my Friday fun day breakfasts. I try to do something special on Friday mornings. Last week I didn’t take a photo, so I e-mailed Gregg a photo today. He read it on air and added, “Jessica sounds like she has delicious Friday fun day breakfasts and all of the listeners have a fitting breakfast for Bach. We are a community and help each other out when it comes to breakfast items. Someone last week inquired about the gluten-free waffles, bought them, and absolutely loved them. Bach brings people together and we have a lovely community.”

This made me so happy to hear. Sometimes I feel like a pain with my diet, but I guess many others have similar restrictions. I’m thankful for Gregg, WRTI, and the kind people of our classical community.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Happy Verklempt Friday to you, dear friend! Your Friday breakfast favorites – gluten free pumpkin spice waffles – have my mouth watering just imagining how they taste. I will look for them down here because I am into eating healthy. I’m so glad you established a rapport with Gregg, the host of the Breakfast With Bach radio program. I am sure your dietary suggestions were important to many other listeners and will encourage them to get on a path to a healthier lifestyle in general. That is an example of how one person has the power to change the lives of many.

    I wish you a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!


  2. Hi Shady!

    Sometimes I remember some family members saying: “be quiet! No one needs to know your personal business!” Well, I can honestly say, as someone who has chronic illnesses, I wish more people were open about their experiences. I have found communities and their openness has helped me; I would like to help others by being opened. I’m an introvert, but I am vocal about my health. I don’t think it’s a bad thing because I think silence does a disservice to chronic illness. I write about it in my yearly newsletter.

    I am thankful for Gregg and WRTI. I’m glad I found the station again and I’ve been listening faithfully for the past two years. There is just something so special about the radio.

    I hope you have a great Sunday!
