Remember Kudzu?

A plant that originated in Asia (China, Japan, Korea) was brought to the US on purpose and introduced as a high-protein cattle fodder and a vine to stop soil erosion. By the time I took a vacation in Tennessee in the 1990's to look up information about our family history on my father's side of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Turning To Food

Food has become an obsession for so many in this age of being told to stay at home, wear a mask, wash your hands every hour, shortages on this and that, and often worrying about nothing to eat, nothing to feed my family, "Give us this day our daily bread...", lost job, no money.... How long can we... Sign in to see full entry.

And So It Goes

I am to the part of my life that is well known for being a slow thinker, along with only being able to deal with one thing at a time.

No Excuse--It Just Is

What do you do when you have something to do that you don't want to do? I go to bed, pull a soft pillow over my head, and let the problem rest for however long it takes to absorb the fact that it is not going to go away on its own, that there is no one else that I can pass it on to that will do it,...
