HO HO HO, I'm Winning the Sugar Battle
Friday, December 23, 2016      10 comments

One thing is for sure; even though I may fall off the no-sugar wagon sometimes, it is now easier to climb back aboard and stay there for a longer period of time. This morning, I had many opportunities that leapt in front of my cart. (smiling) ... Read more

Wednesday, December 21, 2016      11 comments

Once again, I was doing so well when I encountered...well, no need to go into the gory details. But being off sugar for awhile, and then introducing it again is brutal. At this point, I'm staving off the cravings with some grapes. I don't thi... Read more

I'm always amazed by people like him who did things that impacted so many people's lives, in this case, saving choking victims. Same with Ralph Nader and seat belts in vehicles. Hope you are having a happy, healthy, fun weekend.... Read more

I've lucked out finding delish kiwis, watermelon and blackberries, which I'm munching on as I type this blog. I don't know where these are grown, but it's great to have summer fruit at this time of year. And for a song. (singing as I type) (sm... Read more

Saturday, December 10, 2016      7 comments

I'm listening to a report of research on how beneficial handwriting is and all of the positives from doing it vs. keyboarding. Interesting stuff. I've always said that I prefer pen to paper. Now I know why. Have a fun weekend.... Read more
Seeking Simple Uses for Garlic and Ginger
Friday, December 09, 2016      11 comments

I started researching these yesterday, but didn't find much. I "think" I like ginger from the pieces I usually put on sushi. So I bought ginger root yesterday and don't have a clue as to how to use it. As for garlic, I love it and will... Read more
Celebrating Survival Today w/TONS of Gratitude

Today's Lake Walk was Nice, but a Little Sad
Sunday, December 04, 2016      10 comments

The effects of our 7+ year drought are visible on the lovely lake where I walk. Each time I go there, more of it is dried up with the bottom now visible as ground instead of under water like it used to be. While walking today, I stopped a few ... Read more
