Thursday, January 10, 2019      20 comments

To answer some of the questions that responders asked me on yesterday's blog, I bought the jimaca out of curiosity and the fact that it was only a dollar. It was twice the size of a baseball and looked like a potato. Harder to peel and cut... Read more

Self-Like vs Self-Love
Monday, January 07, 2019      21 comments

Either I can't think of a thing to blog about, or have a rush of topics to cover. As I've mentioned days ago, decorations are packed away, but because my front yard lights are small, twinkly things, I plan to keep them up and on for awhile. Th... Read more

SUGAR ADDICTION, GENETICS, AND ALCOHOLISM
Saturday, December 29, 2018      23 comments
