RIP Dr. Henry Heimlich
Saturday, December 17, 2016      6 comments

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

Thursday, December 15, 2016      9 comments

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

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
Thursday, December 08, 2016      8 comments

Many years ago on this date I nearly died three times in one night (for different reasons) from a fire. Jumped from 3rd floor window after throwing my then-baby son out without a net below. They thought I'd be paralyzed for life, but I've neve... Read more

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

Wednesday, November 30, 2016      10 comments

I have no idea what a taro is, but I bought a bag of taro chips yesterday to give them a try. I'm guessing, something like a potato? No matter how I try, I can't seem to stick with food tracking. I make it to afternoon and then get busy a... Read more
SITTING HERE WITH MY ANTLERS ON
Sunday, November 27, 2016      8 comments

And thought I'd jot a note to check in. Not at all disgusted with my huge holiday intake. I enjoyed every morsel, to tell the truth. I was pondering how, come January, it'll be eight years for me here on SP. When I joined, I thought I'd ... Read more
