Attention! Calling all inventors…

As I sit here, suffering from a summer cold (blechkt! the worst!) I have solved the world energy crisis.

Now that I have the perfect fuel and the free source…I need an inventor or inventors who can figure out the specifics.

Mucus!

During a cold, the human body can produce incredible amounts of the stuff. There must be a way to harvest this crap for fuel…burning it up would be the perfect way to get rid of it and as long as the body chooses (or is forced) to produce it by the bushel during a summer cold….we need to put it to work.

Surely, nature, in its perfection, wouldn’t create something that didn’t have a fabulous use. Everything is in balance…I’m sure it’s just a matter of getting the right genius on the problem at hand….so here it is…let the best genius succeed. Oh, and when you do, a small footnote that leads back to this blog would be greatly appreciated.

Namaste.

People killed.

People injured.

Shock!

Grief!

People’s lives changed forever by loss.

The same old arguments ensue. Blame Continue reading

1880 or 2016? 136 years of women’s exploitation?

In this cool old book, “Buckeye Cookery and Practical Housekeeping”  the preface starts off with “Fortunately it is becoming fashionable to economize,” In my local community, in the past couple of years, there have been several events started that aim, or aimed, at helping homemakers learn how to economize while creating a pleasant home experience.  “and housekeepers are really finding it a pleasant pastime to search out and stop wastes in household expenses,” Are they really? Is it a pleasant pastime or is it a necessity? I think in today’s economy, most homemakers would claim it to be a necessity. And evidently, it is a long lived necessity and one that is even profitable. If it weren’t such a popular topic I doubt that Martha Stewart could have built a financial empire on it and that FlyLady would have been hard put to follow in her footsteps. Up-andcomer, Rachel Ray, is on the scene with an ever increasing popularity in those interested in cooking.and to exercise the thousand little economies which thoughtful and careful women understand so readily and practice with such grace.” Continue reading

Old Dog, New Tricks…or…grrrrr

You can’t know what you don’t know. I live by those words.

And I also am a firm believer in speaking positive words to people. I think it helps them reach their full potential.

I know that I have been blessed with a lot of people who tell me how smart I am. Today, I think I learned that maybe that isn’t such a good thing either (I am chuckling as I write that.) Late this morning I decided, after only about an hour of research, that I was smart enough to set up a website on Continue reading
