What an interesting day it’s been. It took me literally nine hours to post that photograph. I will not bore you on Independence Day with the details but I am out of space. You’re seeing the pancakes only because I deleted some videos of the sky and gave myself some wiggle room. 20gigs isn’t what

Took the dogs out early to The Peninsula. Stopped to gaze at The Park on our way back to the truck. Speaking of trucks, have you seen this? The 2021 Ford F-150 will have an onboard generator! This is BIG! Think what that means for when the power goes out. Think what it means for

So I offer you The Declaration of Independence, in small chunks, beginning in the middle of things, the first of The Grievances. There will not be a quiz, but you may be asked what your
Originally posted September, 2012. This is I think my #1 post on Pinterest– which I haven’t done in maybe five years. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t see it’s been looked at at least a couple of times. A close contender as Fall approaches will be Jesse Jackson’s Sweet Potato Pie. These are
