Mr. Ken – serious book reader

February 14, 2018

I love how my dear Mr. Ken has embraced reading. It all started several years ago when we were in a hiking phase (way before my foot issues . . .). I recommended Mr. Ken read the books about the barefoot sisters who through-hiked barefoot the Appalachian Trail. They hiked both ways on the Appalachian […]

Tips for watching the Super Bowl

February 7, 2018

Blah, blah, blah. I don’t like football. There is just something very weird about 300 pound men jumping on top of each other. And for this they get paid millions of dollars a year! I just don’t get it. This dates back to my junior high days when I was a cheerleader. We had a […]

The cookie saga

Betty Crocker, I am not. Ever since my dear friend Lisa and I had a pretzel explosion when attempting to make pretzels, I have stayed away from the kitchen. I decided to make Christmas cookies this year. I view baking like chemistry and see it as just a matter of mixing ingredients together. I read […]
