I hope everyone in Sandy's path has taken precautions and staying safe. For a while last week the weathermen thought it would pass through Florida but it bypassed us. I hope damage is kept to a minimum.... Read more

I should have posted this day before yesterday but here in northeast Florida, we finally got some cool weather! It's been in the high fifties in the mornings and mid to low seventies in the evenings. Such a relief from the eighty and ninety de... Read more

I'm usually terrible at picking new shows to watch but I really enjoyed tonight's premiere of "Nashville." For once, all the hype paid off, it really was a good show. I hope next week's episode is just as good as this one was.... Read more

I got more feedback on my post about the reporter's response to the viewer's criticism of her weight than I have for any other post. It's probably because I usually don't write about anything except the weather. I can't say I agreed with all t... Read more
when to ignore

I saw a story on the news about a news reporter who took on a blogger/emailer (can't remember which) who called her fat in a post or email. I can understand the reporter being hurt and angry, but instead of giving the insensitive jerk more atte... Read more
no fall relief yet
Sunday, September 30, 2012      1 comments

I wrote a week ago hoping that the start of fall would bring some relief from the heat and humidity. It hasn't really happened yet, but at least I'm going to New England on vacation in a couple of weeks. If I can't find any relief from the wea... Read more

I saw on the news where McDonald's is going to start putting the calorie counts on their menus. So there's no longer going to be a mindless ordering of a quarter pounder value meal, you're going to have to face that you're order 1800 calories, ... Read more
grilled fruit for dessert
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      3 comments

If you have a sweet tooth, grilled fruit is not the way to go. I tried some grilled peaches and they were tough and dry, not exactly what I want in a dessert. I think I'll stick to eating fruit in the natural state, or a piece of chocolate if ... Read more

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. I'm sorry to see the summer end but it will be nice to have cooler temperatures. I'm in north Florida so September won't see much cooling off, but I hope there will be fewer 90 degree days.... Read more

Just finished watching Project Runway and instead of designing for their usual models, the designers had to make clothes for non models, women whose friends thought they needed a makeover. One of the designers pitched a fit from the get go, sa... Read more

I know I haven't written about my writing lately after promising to blog about it every day, but a) I got distracted and b) writing about writing got boring and tedious. However, I have been writing even though I didn't report it here, and Wedn... Read more

There's a Symon's Suppers marathon on the Cooking Channel now and what surprises me out of all the delicious dishes Michael Symon makes, it's his salads, or the dishes he makes with greens that look the most appetizing. Kale, arugula, carrots, ... Read more
