Cooking

I have never been much of a cook.  In fact, one might say that I have always been a lousy cook, with a very limited list of foods to cook.  Now, because Chuck (my husband) has decided that his heart is important, we have embarked on the Ornish diet for heart health.  I cannot believe …

I’m Still Old

You know, I used to like to write.  About everything.  And now I find myself unable to think about putting my thoughts or my memories on paper.  I used to belong to a memory keepers writing group, and while it is still going on, I cannot bring myself to attend those monthly meetings, because I …
