About a month ago, I started applying Rosemary oil to a corner of my forehead that was bare from hair loss. Sure enough, it's sprouting fuzzy little hair that is growing in and is no longer a bare spot. Of course, me being me, if some is g... Read more

Wednesday, June 28, 2017      8 comments

I've seen several reports stating that older people no longer taste their food. Yikes! What else is there to look forward to? Our noses and ears continue to grow, our thirst mechanism goes whacko, and now I read that we can't taste our food? ... Read more

Heat Wave, Power Outage, Cheese Progress, Sugar Progress
Wednesday, June 21, 2017      5 comments

I guess that's why they call it Summer. It's hot. In fact, a heatwave. I guess CA residents put a strain on the grid last night as our power went out for a couple of hours. Nothing like a reminder of what it was like in the "olden days" with... Read more

Sunday, June 18, 2017      5 comments

And have never even seen a picture of. Today I feel a bit sad over that empty space that has always been in my heart. Long story, too gory. HOWEVER, how lucky to have had wonderful father figures in my life providing unconditional love. ... Read more

Friday, June 16, 2017      6 comments

It's been in the news all week about how millions of people think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Can that possibly be true? Just got Harry's test results back; everything is within normal range, so these down turns are puzzling. I ... Read more

Friday, June 16, 2017      10 comments

My fur baby, Prince Harry, was doing better yesterday (and today). So I really didn't have to bring him into the vet. But I did because he is a senior and I need to see what's going on. I suspect kidney something or other since Himmies are pr... Read more
