What's happened around the bird feeder in my back yard shows a good example of how some people are not so different from squirrels. But maybe I should only speak for myself.

I didn't know anyone played football with a sword... sure doesn't sound like … Continue reading extrasensory overload

I'm going to start sharing things that I've found to help a bit. Mainly recipes. We'll see how I do for photos. The … Continue reading oh my achin’ carbs!

I wonder if a slather of heinz would help the ache in these joints… ;D Check out a nice surprise birthday present we're enjoying on Spirit Train Chronicles! Wishing everyone an awesome 2019! (thank you Walmart.com … Continue reading special sauce
