(actual film) (you know, the kind that needs developing) (the expense was intense) (oy), I can stand a refresher and what better way to do that than […]

Coconut Palm Sugar: Hype or Hero?

I’m not a faddish kinda gal, especially in the nutritional arena. In all things nutrition or otherwise, I subscribe to the moderation in everything way of life, except ridiculous, ironic and nonsensical laughs…I believe in an overabundance of those. For those keeping score, I have never given up carbs, drink or white sugar. Oh, white […]

When Everything Revolves Around Poop!

Yep. Poop. Young mommies know what I’m talking about. I see you nodding. Older folks know what I’m talking about. I see you nodding. When I was traveling the unpaved, trip-you-up road of chemo, poop became a constant topic of discussion, because it’s directly related to good health, directly related to how well a body […]

The Slinger: Mason Jar Shot Glasses

If you’ve been reading here for any length of time, you’re familiar with my Mason jar issues. I think they’re swell for canning, for storing food, but I take issue with pretending they’re bowls.

A Sick Day For Amos McGee

You know when I find a book Sweet E likes, I’m passing that badboy along to you guys. This book was read over the phone, without the benefit of video, and E never made a sound as the story progressed.  When I was finished, he had remembered the animals and Amos.  I don’t know of […]
