Start 2015 with New Goals

Start 2015 with New Goals for a New Year!  Resolutions are made and quickly broken, forgotten.  Change is never something we embrace easily as humans.  But change can be healthy for us and make us have a better quality of life.  Long life is not good if the last years are spent in hospitals or […]

My Favorite Snack for Summer!

To add some crunch to the fruits, we often had a big bowl of popcorn! Back then, we did not have a microwave to instantly nuke some kernels of corn coated in a variety of chemicals. No, we did things from scratch.

Handling Holiday Stress

Over the years, the memories created during these celebrations are more valuable than any store bought gift.

This time however, I am getting to visit with some really […]

Now that is How to Celebrate a Birthday!

On the porch of this very nice mountain home was my family! All singing Happy Birthday to me! Laughing and pointing fingers at everyone I was totally surprised.

You Should See This Scale!

Then in came this new scale today. It came with an Instruction MANUAL! Really?! You need an instruction manual to use a scale? And to add insult to injury, the instruction manual was about 10 pages in English!
