More Getting Rid of Fleas

Back when I was in my high school years, I learned some nonsense rhymes. Some of them were for Speech and Journalism and some were ones I happened to find on my own. The ones for S&J served a purpose. The theory was that if we made big enough fools of ourselves in front of […]

Another Saturday night…

and I’ve got Twinkle. And fleas. I must say the latter aren’t bothering us. We have brewer’s yeast! We smell savory but we aren’t getting bitten except once in a very great while.

The Raw Vegan: Part XLV, Where do we go from here?

Several months prior to February, 1986, Kat-the-Dog had managed to get away from us during a dangerous time. She was in heat.

My Square Foot Garden Update 4

Before I get into my every-other-weekly update, I want to acknowledge what would have been my mother’s 104th birthday had she lived to see it. She used to joke that she would live to be 104. She didn’t but she does live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her and loved […]

Another week is history

Friday night: Must’ve been woefully dehydrated. I was feeling so dizzy I had to bend over and put my head between my knees. At one point, I considered having my neighbor take me to the emergency room but I was sure all I needed was fluids. Even though I felt a little better after I […]
