In Old Palm Springs...

"Did You See That?" That's what I said, once upon my lifetime, after we left the restaurant. Every so often, back when, we'd get a night away from the kids and zip off to Palm Springs for some R & R, long before there were classy hotels in Palm Desert. One could still see the occasional celeb there;... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Makes the Best Coffee?

How come my mom could make the best coffee ever? All she used was tap water, plain old Folgers or Yuban ground coffee from a can, and an old percolator coffeepot bubbling atop a gas stove. She knew just how much coffee to add to the amount of water in the pot, how long to let it percolate/brew, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Who in the heck were the Oenotrians?

And what did they wear? The Oenotrians were an old, old, wine-loving people who lived in what is now Southern Italy as early as the 11th Century B.C. That's a long time ago. They came from Greece, before Greece was called Greece! Sophocles wrote of them in the 5th Century B.C., and Dionysius of... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Wash Me a Load...

Talk about Thrifty! There was some discussion here in Blogitsville about the recycling of plastic items. Now, I'm all for recycling but there are some things, yes, like personal items, for which it may not be appropriate to consider a second use. But I'm not goin' there, folks. Along another vein of...

Who's Been Picking Through YOUR Berries?

File Under: All In a Day's Work... Yesterday was berry-picking day - uh, in my kitchen - since I had spilled them all over everything. But that reminded me of a day that I was in Whole Foods, a market of fairly good repute. I was about to buy some fresh strawberries and as I approached the area... Sign in to see full entry.

Oop! I Spilled the Beans...

"Uhh, I Mean, the Berries..." Went to Trader Joe's today to pick up a few things. They say they sell no items that are GMO. That idea appeals to me ever since I saw a show called "Seeds," a topic for another day, perhaps. I like to get their berries, and they have bread from France that's as thick...

Where Was RP? - NOTE: Due to fires, I could lose internet or phone service.

Note #2: If one is so inclined, prayers are requested for my cousin I, who is very, very ill, in hospital, and is having surgery tomorrow. He's survived a massive heart attack, several strokes, has renal failure and is on dialysis, is partially paralyzed and has diabetes. He is undergoing gall... Sign in to see full entry.

I Could Count to 10, but..

First Sign I Would Never Be a Math Major When I was a little girl, not yet into kindergarten, I knew my address, could count to 10, write a little bit, draw, and paint - a lot - on an easel even. I knew my letters. All that was considered pretty good, though far from genius, by yesterday's... Sign in to see full entry.

Whose Kid Does This?

More on Daughter #1's Antics (Conclusion of This Episode) We left off with... "The kicker came one morning at four a.m. when I head noises coming from the kitchen. Mothers often sleep half-awake, listening for unusual sounds alerting them to any potential distress of their children. As I hurried out... Sign in to see full entry.
