As you may have guessed, we did a spot of traveling, which cut into blogging time, over the weekend. Yesterday, I had “no service” on my phone and concomitantly, no internet service. Gee. Wonder if the two could be related? Look forward to a rant on tech support in the near future just as soon
It’s Friday night and the salads for the first Tailgate are chilling, the tea is made, the coolers are clean, and the corned beef and brisket are sliced– thanks to Kat– and so what else I’m I going to do? If you are among the randomly chosen readers who are seeing new content here, bless
I do not know. The blog has been having some technological issues loading new content and other changes. I’ve worked with SiteGround and I hope they are fixed. If you visit the site and see the same post up for more than say half a day, please let me know in the comments. Thanks.
There is some glitch somewhere such that new posts are not loading immediately as they should be. Until I figure it out, click the title of the latest one you see, scroll to its end, and click next post. Sorry & thanks!
This is the 4501st post on this crappy old blog. Just FYI.
Sorry. I didn’t really forget about you yesterday, I just had things to do. Fondly, Marica
Steve @Hounds and Other Stuff left a comment that my contact form wasn’t working. Sure enough, it was not. I am not stupid but I am also not a coder so it took me about 15 minutes to figure it out. But I did it! So if you’re in the neighborhood, or on the other

Long time and faithful reader SueK has posted her 200th comment! Thank you SueK! In other news, her birthday is this week (but she’s not 200).
Good morning! I am having some issues with the blog as it currently exists on the World Wide Webisphere. Kat has helped with some, most importantly suggesting that I need a more responsive hosting service. And so… Bigfoodetc.com is moving to a new host. As you know, I have many talents but tinkering around in
Who the hell are you, anyway? So I guess WordPress has issues. These are just three of the dozen or so “likes” Bigfoodetc has gotten on random posts that I am quite certain– and admittedly based solely on their looks– do not interest the Likers. Elle, bottom pic, thought “Our life’s succeeding stages” was pretty awesome. She’s
As I– a fallen blogger with five years & 3000 some odd posts– am attempting to get back in there, I have vowed to follow Gerard VanderLeun’s rule of blogging (for which I cannot find the link right now) and blog the hell out of everything for six months. But as I– fallen blogger that I am–
You’ll note I’m making some changes to the blog. They are not finished, so if you see something that looks off, it’s probably because I had to stop doing what I was doing and tend to Real Life. This will be sticky until I’m satisfied with the total package.
I was in Texas. I think Mr. Big Food’s Dad should promote this blog, don’t you? We got a little bit of statistics and history. And we do like proper grammar. And manners. Given who my Father-In -Law is, I should have about four and one-half billion followers by the first of the year, right? That’s
“What?” “Ruff?” “Marica. Back On Line.” “Oh my!” “Ruff!” “So I take it you had some success fixing your clickedy clack machine.” “Indeed.” “Ruff?” “Well, do tell.” “It’s been an adventure.” “We know. We heard you swearing… .” “ruff.” “And I cannot thank Kat enough for all of her help.” “She is a marvelous young
Though it has wonderfully artistic lines of fuschia running though it as I post it, this screen shot of my old desktop looked wonderfully white and bright and clear when I took it. This will not do. I just finished an interesting book about the 1930s but I can’t talk about it because my
I apologize for the silence.
I’ve been running on my backup iComputer and now, back on the Farm with its blazing fast internet connection, it is increasingly difficult to even stay on line for more than 10 minutes at a time on this old iThingy.
So while there has been oodles and oodles of blog-worthy stuff going on, I just haven’t had time.
The food has been excellent, by the way. Lots of things are getting done. Everyone’s working hard. The dogs are well. Tiger is going to get stepped on if he doesn’t find a new place to crash.
I am going to attempt to read some of this month’s
crappy old book of the month and report back.
UPDATE: Problems solved, I hope. Suek has alerted me to the fact that something is wrong with comments, and with “contact.” I’m dealing with Farm stuff– cleaning soot, have to get dressed up and go to Starkville soon, must eat lunch!– but I’ll get on it ASAP. Unless of course Kat sees this and
when we have nothing to do– like late next January, that we should attempt to diagram these sentences: Hi there! I am so thrilled I found your blog. I’m really appreciating the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you provide. It’s simply generous of you to present freely precisely what a
“RRRUUFFF???” “Missy! I have had quite enough of this. You’ve been back-talking and sassing me all day and now this! Counter-culture gutter talk. Go get the Irish Spring.” “R.U.F.F.” “Oh my goodness, Marica. I’m just joking around. You seem in such a mood. I was just trying to get a rise out of you.” “Oh,
