Salty African Moose – it’s your turn

SALTY AFRICAN MOOSE ICE-CREAM coming up soon. It's already been made. Just gotta type it. Be On The LookOut. It's A Dessert. And it's number 3. The second recipe did not result in any views on WordPress or Facebook, so I go to #3, not to #1. Just so you know, I don't go past… Continue reading Salty African Moose – it’s your turn

Speed Trap

"The law's the law in Dinwiddie County Virginia, boy." Said the mayor of some city/town in the county where my husband was pleading for the mayor to accept his check and release me from jail for speeding in a reduced speed limit construction zone. Speed traps they called them back in the early 1970's, set… Continue reading Speed Trap

COLD TRUTHS

Simpson verdict was handed down to a cheering Black America community that could be heard and seen throughout the USA. I thought we were better than that. Chris… Continue reading COLD TRUTHS

SWEET WHITE CORN AND SUMMER TOMATOES

Popsicle sticks writing in hot, sticky tar, on hot streets, on hot summer days. Sitting on the curb with tanned shoulders bending to the ground by the weight of the sun. Spider webs sparkling in the morning dew. Cool, summer streams filling the air with rushing sounds of clear running water. My dog licking the… Continue reading SWEET WHITE CORN AND SUMMER TOMATOES

THE CONTRADICTION ISSUE

Upon choosing a healthier more compassionate diet, you will be challenged by those who have not yet taken that step, to defend your decision to not eat animals. They will argue that your animal-free diet contradicts your other animal using behaviors, thus making the issue of killing animals not worthy of consideration. They will point… Continue reading THE CONTRADICTION ISSUE
