Now May Be The Best Time To Cruise

I have already stated that I will never cruise again. The three cruises I took were more than enough to satisfy me and to steer me away from future cruises. With Covid, of course cruises have completely changed. If you do like to cruise, now may be the best time to cruise. Because of CDCContinue reading “Now May Be The Best Time To Cruise”

Hot Chocolate

Because of a condition, I am unable to consume more caffeine that what is in a candy bar. Caffeine consumption makes my heart feel like it is beating out of rhythm and it feels like what I would imagine a heart attack might feel like – but I have no idea what that would feelContinue reading “Hot Chocolate”

Picky Eaters?

I never liked the term picky eater. One of my daughters has a huge range of foods and tastes she accepts and even loves. She can eat bitter chocolates, tea, cilantro, onions, spices, etc. The other? Not so much. But I’ve never called her a picky eater. To me, the term picky eater alludes toContinue reading “Picky Eaters?”

Girl Scout Cookie Widow

Most of you have heard of a football widow, right? That’s when the woman is ignored while her husband is obsessed with football season. He leaves her alone while he watches football on every tv and station in the house. Nobody I love cares that much about any sport ball. Girl Scouts are another story.Continue reading “Girl Scout Cookie Widow”

Pre registering to vote

Did you know 16 & 17 year old in NC can pre register to vote? I had NO idea until my daughter told me that she learned in her CIVICS class she could and would earn extra points in class for doing it. The side of me that is suspicious wonders what the government isContinue reading “Pre registering to vote”

I Bought An Egg Poacher

There are so many ways to cook the humble egg. Eggs can be hard boiled, soft boiled, hard scrambled, soft scrambled, fry sunny side up, fry over easy, fry over medium, fry over hard, or made into an omelet or a frittata. Even baked (shirred) eggs are tasty. Basted eggs seem just greasy to meContinue reading “I Bought An Egg Poacher”

My “Uncle” Peter

Uncle Peter reminds me a lot of my Mother. They were both born in the mid 1940’s and they both had to really work hard to earn their money and status. The difference between them is that Peter is sane and happy. It has been a lot of fun getting to know him. Slowly ourContinue reading “My “Uncle” Peter”

Happy New Year?

Here we are. It’s the end of 2021. I hated 2019 as I watched my father wither away, 2020 was a dumpster fire in every way, 2021 had a hopeful beginning and still ended up being a disappointing year. What will 2022 be like? I’m not sure. But I know one thing – I’m goingContinue reading “Happy New Year?”
