I've been Sparking for years and joining this group has given a little push to try harder. Last week I kept seeing on youtube about people losing their minds over Popeye's Chic... Read more

  • 64th in 4th Cookery Challenge: Red not yellow pepper sauce.

    11/15/2019 12:34:15 PM, by -POOKIE-

    I REALLY wanted to make the bright yellow sinshine sauce 🔆 But no yellow peppers in the store! So red sauce instead. Which certainly isn't as interesting to look at! I think I should have blended it for longer as the pepper peel was a bit bitty textured, but it was tasty. ... Read more

    My last blog was on Nov.1. It just so happened that my life had a tremendous upheaval when my brother passed on Nov. 2 while visiting my sister out of state. The days since then have consisted of trying to maintain some sense of normalcy at home while wading through what needed to be done as well... Read more

    11/15/2019 7:51:41 AM, by RUTHIEBEAR

    I saw this statue at Grounds for Sculpture and feel i love with it. How beautifully it portrays the elegance and grace of the dancer. I was also struck by the sense of balance. As I grow older, my sense of balance is way off, both physically and emotionally. My trainer is constantly working ... Read more

    My short term goal is to get through the holidays with low blood sugar numbers. Here's my plan: 1. Eat a healthy meal (as usual) and stop when I'm not hungry. Go easy on the gravy. 2. Make lots of time for hikes. When it's too cold or icy outside, dance inside and use the treadmill. Don'... Read more

    11/15/2019 4:47:30 AM, by DEDICATED2HIM

    As I have lost some weight so far (about 30 lbs), I have been dismayed to see my flesh kind of just hanging on my bones...(of course the bones are not visible much--not YET!). The atrophy is obvious even just by looking at me. When I lost the 70 lbs 9-10 years ago, I did it while exercising beginn... Read more
