My Christmas present from the entire family was a new computer. Woo hoo! My old laptop didn't have a y or z key. I had to copy and paste a y on every word containing a y. I never could find a z to copy and paste so pizza was pissa, and drizz... Read more
I was going to say I am tone deaf, but according to Wikipedia, tone deafness is kind of mental disorder. I'm not a mental case--well, usually not. But I do have a problem.
I dislike music--all kinds. All I can distinguish is high, low, and ... Read more
I wish I were finished with this "diet" process, but I have a long way to go. What I'm talking about is that I'm finished with Christmas shopping. Woo hoo! Now I can enjoy the upcoming holiday--CHIRSTMAS. It's not winter holiday or winter br... Read more
Make the Holiday Just 2 Days!
Just read the greatest article. It said there is no reason to make the holiday six or eight weeks of continuous partying. Make each holiday separate and distinct--two day to party and eat. Then get back on track until the next 2-day holiday.... Read more
I'm not a junkie, but I love salsa. Not necessarily hot, hot, but medium is fine. There are two things I love it on. A plain baked potato is delicious with just salsa. And I use it as a salad dressing. Everything in it can be found in a sal... Read more

Making Freggie Changes
Every week or so, I'm trying a new FRuit or vGGIE. Last week it was kale. It was so good, my daughter and I just about ate it all ourselves. This week I sauted plaintains and sprinkled a tiny bit of gray salt over them. Everyone loved them. ... Read more
I am barely starting to walk further from the house. The reason? Last spring I was up to 2 miles and was in the middle of a vineyard when I got a bad case of diahhrea. I made it home but had to stop continually and sit on the ground. I was s... Read more
Which Came First?
No, not the old story about the chicken and egg. That was settled when my oldest daughter was 4. She said, "Why would God put an egg on earth with no one to guard it!"
My question is this: Which comes first, the jerking awake or the dream. ... Read more
Spark People Recipes
About once or twice a week, I make a recipe from Spark People. My grandson, who lives with me, loves the food. He wants me to cook from SparkPeople every day. When he gets home from school, he asks what's for dinner? Last night it was thin s... Read more
Can't Get it Right!
My body, I think, is still in starvation mode. I'm trying to eat more calories but I have sacrificed fruits and veggis for carbos. Still not right. If I eat more fruits and veggies, I can't get my calorie count up high enough.
I've increase... Read more
My 15-year-old grandson was just told he had high cholesterol. I do too! Mine is heriditary. I'm on meds but it's still pretty high. I eat mostly vegetarian but do include some meats--I call myself a flexitarian--I'm flexible. Anyway, this... Read more
y Walking, Rediscovered
No, I didn't rediscover the lost art of walking. Silly! It's about the only exercise I can do so it can get pretty boring. In fact, it got too hot to walk this summer so I basically stopped for 3 months. I know, I know--not good. But as soo... Read more
What Is Fast Food?
Ok, Ok--I know a burger, fries, and soft drink qualify as fast food. But is healthy fast food considered horrid fast food? If I had a salad and water, would it be considered fast food? How about a chicken wrap with no sauce, fruit, and water?... Read more
