Looks like it will be a banner year for potatoes. These still have about a month to grow.

Seduce my mind

Find my soul

Train your mind
to see the good in everything.

Positivity is a choice.

The happiness of your life
depends on the quality of your thoughts.


"To use many words
to communicate few thoughts
is everywhere the unmistakable
sign of mediocrity.

To gather much thought
into few words
stamps the man of genius."

~ Arthur Schopenhauer ~

I find it along a small hollow behind my house.

My Favorite Photos

Boys flying kites
haul in their white-winged birds.
But you can not do that
when you're flying words.

Thoughts unexpressed
may sometimes fall back dead.
But God, himself,
can't kill them once they're said.

It is a little sweeter than most, and some of the i…

Years ago, Shoney's Restaurants had this wonderful strawberry pie that had whole ripe berries swimming in a yummy sweet glaze, and crowned with huge dollops of whipped cream. It was one of their best-selling items. This recipe is similar, but has a gelatin based glaze which I actually like better. …

When hubby and I first got married, he kept mentioning this wonderful breakfast casserole that he had eaten in the past. He had no idea what the recipe was and I had never heard of it. In fact it sounded kinda yucky to me! Sausage gravy, canned corn, hard-boiled eggs! Not ingredients that I would ha…
