My Pumpkin Story

Last week an acquaintance had sent me three pumpkin recipes that looks so good, I felt I had to buy a pumpkin after all. I don’t always bother, and had not grown any spaghetti squash, which I often use as a substitute. So besides all the other things I was doing I took time to […]

Stones for the Centerpieces

I don’t think of myself as a great kitchen expert; if I spend too long on my feet there my sciatic nerve pinches me. So I was glad to leave the banquet food to the caterer, but I decided that I could add some creative touches in other ways. What about centerpieces to go with […]


Two of My Traits

Two of my traits are making me a lot more work than you might get into. One is my commitment to keep any and every promise I make. The other is my resolve to do everything I tackle as WELL and THOROUGHLY as I can before I call it done. Really, I didn’t know how […]

Becoming https Compliant

I’ve discovered that Google is expecting websites to become https compliant by a certain date. (Was that yesterday?) This is more complicated than I first realized, so that may give me a load of work that I have to fit in too. I’ll have to work at that on my own sites, plus the ones […]


Dealing with Maple Bugs, etc.

Are you dealing with maple bugs, etc., trying to get into your house this fall? Me too. There are some natural remedies that work to a degree. You might want to try several of these ideas: Cinnamon keeps mosquitoes away, and cinnamon oil attracts other insects, so you can use it as a trap. Mint! […]


Did You Give Thanks?

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada. However, as I’ve often done before, (and I know many other families do too), I made a point of celebrating it with a family supper on Sunday. The only family I have close by is my brother Tom, and the last few years I’ve been including a friend of […]
