…..or This is Not a Blog About Camping I’m camping at Keji where the internet is unreliable so I will keep this post brief. I wanted some snacks to have with my tea. I don’t know why because I rarely drink tea, even when I am camping. I chose to make raisin buns, the traditional […]

I Loves Sunday Morning

…or Oh Me Arteries. Did I say why I likes Sunday mornings? It is because Sunday for me is Clog Your Arteries Day. Now that butter is off the ‘bad food’ list, bacon can’t be far behind so I am getting a head start. Eggs came off the list a while back. Did they not? […]

Tool of the Week #3

….or Meet My New Chicken Lifters. Once, a long time ago and far far away, while at work, I Googled “lifting techniques” to find some images for a presentation I was giving on how to use good body mechanics. Ha. I hit enter and the screen was flooded with thumbnail photos of boobs in all […]

Old Fashioned Goodness

….or Who Do You Think You’re Foolin’? (rant alert) I spotted this beverage at the fruit and vegie stand. They sell a lot of good stuff there besides the usual oranges and farm fresh eggs; you can buy blackstrap molasses, local honey and Amish cheeses. They had this beverage in a cooler by the counter.

Double Chocolate Crinkles

Happy Thanksgiving #2

….or Happy American Thanksgiving You might find it hard to be thankful these days but really, sit back and look at what you’ve got and think again. Besides that, Huffington Post has informed me that the Dalai Lama has no worries about the new president so I feel a little reassured. Anyhow, we really shouldn’t […]


….or Time to Fatten Up For Winter. Fall sneaks up on us in a subtle way. It is not just the colour changes that gives it away. One day you notice that you are wearing long sleeves, you drive with the car windows all closed, and you think you overslept because it is dark when you […]

Today’s Costume: Baker

…..Pop Goes the Blogger. Baking is a little like childbirth. The minute it is over your brain forgets the whole misery of the event and you are left with the sweetness. Let me explain. Seemed like a great idea for a Thanksgving treat for dinner tomorrow. Cake pops. There will be pumpkin pie of course but […]

Questions of the Day

……or Whaaat? Question number one: How many faces can you find in your touton? You have probably heard of the incident of someone finding Jay Leno’s face on their potato? Or that of Mother Theresa smiling from the side of a cinnamon bun? Then there was Whoopie Goldberg’s face on a slice of onion. Well, I wish this […]
