Books, Jelly, And More!

I continue to be busy. Descending Skies is now out. Click on the link to purchase it. Visiting Strangers is with my writers group and should be out within a couple of weeks. **Addendum** Visiting Strangers is now available! Spring flowers are making some yummy jellies: honeysuckle, lilac, dandelion, violet. I’ve also tried corn cob jelly. Honey-lemon and hibiscus are the next experiments. I’m also trying some cookie recipes that use flowers and the corn I cut off the cobs. […]

Eating Flowers!

So, now that I’ve been experimenting with different jellies and jams, I’ve been gravitating toward doing more flower-oriented jellies. I’ve already made lavender, rose, dandelion, and violet. I also want to do some teas. I’ve ordered a couple of books on edible flowers but this site also lists quite a few. I think hibiscus and marigold might be up next, but who knows? What would you like to see?

2021 Playlists

I’m still making videos for my YouTube channel. You could be featured in one if you want! Here are the playlists I have right now: Peering at Passion: The newest playlist. I was wondering how I could help support small businesses during the Time of Pandemic. It’s difficult to start up a new business in the best of times, and these are not the best of times. If you have a business you’re trying to keep afloat (no MLMs, please, […]

Good-bye 2020!

We’re about to ring out the old year and ring in the new. And what a year it has been. I hardly think I need to reiterate anything about the pandemic. We’ve buried far too many people who didn’t have to die, and that sucks. On a personal level, 2020 wasn’t so bad. I wanted to write 5 books, but got to 4 1/3. Perfection, With Sleepless Eye, and Past the Isle of Dogs are available on Amazon. Paradise has […]

Do Shirts Go in the Woods?

We all know the old saw about bears, but what about shirts? Turns out our shirts work well while you’re setting up camp, hiking in the wilderness, or packing all your things back to for the return to civilization. Shirt quantities are not limited, but you should still get yours today! Shirts available on the teespring store.

Tarsal Tunnel

So I’ve been diagnosed with a couple of things this year I didn’t even know were things, such as fructose intolerance and tarsal tunnel syndrome. Fructose intolerance is like lactose intolerance only it’s a different sugar your body doesn’t process correctly. On the good side, it means I can now eat ice cream again provided I make sure to buy the stuff that only has milk, cream, sugar, and eggs in it. But it means I’m to avoid anything high […]

YouTube Subscribers

So I’ve finally cracked 150 subscribers (it’s only taken 6 months!). Let’s keep going and get to 200 by the end of summer, ok? If there’s anything you’d like to see on the channel, let me know. Right now, I’m just putting up stuff that interests me because I have no other opinions to consult. But what interests you? More movie reviews? More writing advice? More short stories? Comment on the channel or email me your thoughts. And thanks for […]

I Was on the Radio!

Buying Things

I usually buy Christmas presents while I’m on vacation but who knows if we’ll get to go on a vacation this year. So, friends, if you are expecting a gift from me, it may very well be that I already have it, as I have been spending part of my life while in lockdown on the internet buying stuff on Etsy and Ebay. So…..Merry Christmas?
