Food: I have a flair with cooking; love to serve and be
I like to buy local produce, meat and eggs whenever
possible...organic or free-range, and free-range means animals not
cooped up. Not just chickens!
Have you ever been to Fresh From the Farm on Donlands Avenue?
I enjoy Asian, with or without chopsticks, and Indian foods with
vegetables, meat, seafood, curries and spices. South American food
is scrumptious...real homemade of all of the above is the best
though. I make a really good Lobster Bisque...or so I am
A lovely quote:
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as
you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you should begin it serenely and
with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Just discovered this great quote by Reba Mcintire, in another
"To succeed in life you need three things. A wishbone, a backbone,
and a funny bone."
