Angelina Jolie is a controversial figure. Some people think she’s a talented, tattooed actress; some think she stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston and tops the weird chart for wearing (second husband) Billy Bob Thornton’s blood in a vial around her neck. Other people admire her work as an ambassador to third world countries; […]
Plastic Tray Recycle
I love to recycle and re-purpose items because it makes me feel like I’m being a good steward of the world’s stuff. There certainly is a lot of stuff on the planet, and the longer we can use a material thing, the better. I’m a Pinterest fan mainly because there are hundreds of ideas there […]
MANGOES (what you need to know)
I have a love/hate relationship with mangoes. For me, they are equally delicious and toxic. I didn’t know this until last year when a friend of ours gave us some huge, juicy mangoes from her tree. After eating them nonstop for a few days, I woke up with a few itchy dots on my wrist. […]
Talking Turkey (and other treats)
Thanksgiving, Christmas, cooler weather! Turkey, and more turkey! They come every time this year, but it still surprises me. I live in Florida, so I’m a shorts/flip-flop girl year round.

The books do not portray true love, nor healthy individuals. Sadly, enough women found them enticing, and today, the movie will be released. The story […]
I was remiss earlier this week when I wrote about our favorite brownie, but did not post the recipe. I’ve received many comments/emails this week about that oversight. Man, you guys are on the ball(park.) Because I’m grateful for every reader who pops in, and I don’t want to get smacked with a ruler, here’s […]
Happy Birthday, Bob!
Today is my husband’s birthday. A Baker’s Dozen Reasons Why I Love the Birthday Boy. 1. Every time he goes to 7-11, he asks me if I need anything. 2. He washes my car. Regularly. Shines the tires and everything. He claims it runs better when it’s clean. 3. He’s tender and kind with people […]
Happy Birthday, America!
Happy Birthday America! Several years ago, we received this homemade card in the mail from our son and daughter-in-law. Both of their fathers were Air Force career men, so they remember the sacrifices that military families make. I pray, as a nation, we never forget the men and women who have served and sacrificed for […]
