Sat, 4 Mar 2017 21:29:30 EST Time for an explanation <BR> Thought it was about time that I sat down and explained....or whined...about why I have not been blogging or posting. During the summer while working in the yard, I went to step up on my lawn tractor. My sneaker was wet and my foot slipped causing me to whack my shin against the foot rest. There was no cut but only a scrape. I went about getting done what I had planned and never gave it a second thought. The area really hurt but never got black and blue. As days passed, the pain i...

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't <BR> sweet, are meat. We take English for granted.
