Religious Head Coverings Oppress Women

As a young Catholic girl I had to cover my head in church; the boys didn’t have to. They had to remove their head coverings upon entering church. The boys were allowed on the altar; the girls weren’t. Even though girls would collect and take home their surplices to wash, starch and iron for theContinue reading “Religious Head Coverings Oppress Women”

EAT

What does animal-free cooking have to do with politics outside the realm of Big Agriculture or plant-based issues? Everything. Everything we do in life in every category has a dead or a living animal attached to it: politics, religion, economics, sociology, psychology, technology, arts, mechanics, engineering, business, architecture, experimentation, entertainment, travel, media, space exploration, agriculture,Continue reading “EAT”

Working It Out With The Main Brain (controlling the fat)

FAT CONTROL If my brain gets that I’m unpredictable in my food consumption choices within the category of animal-free, then that’s what it will expect as being okay with me. I’ll stay in the unpredictable category and my brain will rest easy with that, since there’s a lot going on there to focus on withoutContinue reading “Working It Out With The Main Brain (controlling the fat)”

“play that funky music white boy”

Steve and I went to a local tavern – a multi-cultural place where everybody gets along. Well, of course you know when people get along, some people want to disrupt the harmony for the sake of disruption or some political cause or just to make themselves known to the entire tavern – usually in aContinue reading ““play that funky music white boy””

Follow Her Recipe

My mother knew how to follow a recipe. She also knew how to create her own. On one visit to the Homeland – Arthur Street in Springfield, Massachusetts – she made my minestrone soup from the cookbook I sent her. She put it in front of me at the table and watched while I ate.Continue reading “Follow Her Recipe”

I Wrote To My Brother Every Day That He Was In Viet Nam

I Wrote To My Brother Every Day That He Was In Viet Nam POSTED 5 Oct 2017 Chef Sharon Davies-Tight https://wordwarriordavies-tight.com This is what Jew writers and all other writers concur with, ‘you can never start a sentence with an “I”. I can break the rules set by others if those rules are meaningless. I wroteContinue reading “I Wrote To My Brother Every Day That He Was In Viet Nam”

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, setContinue reading “Speed Trap”

Christening By Parachute – Korea

My Uncle Mike (really named James) served in the Korean War – my father’s only brother. (My father’s name is Tom Davies who served as a Merchant Marine during World War II). He (my Uncle Mike) brought home from the war to his mother who sewed all her own clothes and the clothes of others,Continue reading “Christening By Parachute – Korea”

COLD TRUTHS

When the democrats reacted with venom, violence and vengeance to the news of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, I knew how Chris Darden felt after the O.J. 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. ChrisContinue 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 theContinue reading “SWEET WHITE CORN AND SUMMER TOMATOES”

Joseph’s Present

joseph’s present. I crossed a bridge in the early morning hours of the night. Don’t know how it happened, but knew it did, by my own long gaze, while walking backwards, away from that which I was leaving behind.  Hearing the sound of my slow steps with ever-widening gait, I walked, no marched–forward, onward, with oneContinue reading “Joseph’s Present”

From CITIZEN To MILITARY To VETERAN

My nephew Alex went to boot camp at Parris Island. He joined the Marines. For those who think only disadvantaged kids go, this was not the case with Alex. There are young men and women, no matter their status, who really do want to serve their country – people who want to step up toContinue reading “From CITIZEN To MILITARY To VETERAN”

Wall Street? I’m he-e-r-r-re!

This is what I got from Jim Cramer’s recent book called GET RICH CAREFULLY – a book Steve got me at the library, thinking I might be interested. You can change the market without having to know anything about the status of the companies you’re betting on. That was the gist of it. When IContinue reading “Wall Street? I’m he-e-r-r-re!”

GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

Wasting food in the kitchen is not something that I often do. Guess I get that from my mother. When I develop a recipe, I have to get it right the first time. If I don’t, then that’s money down the disposal. When I go into that kitchen, I’m all business. There is no failureContinue reading “GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME”

THE HUMANITY IN OTHER ANIMALS

When I first joined Facebook, being the animal rights activist I am, I saw a lot of slaughter photos/videos, posted by the friends I had on Facebook who were animal rights activists trying to educate the populace to the horrors of enslavement, torture and slaughter. I wasn’t, however, accustomed to seeing up front and personalContinue reading “THE HUMANITY IN OTHER ANIMALS”

REGARDING JUICES: A VERY SHORT STORY

REGARDING JUICES: A VERY SHORT STORY Years ago I worked for a short time at a produce company. I responded to an ad in the classifieds, for a salad prep job, thinking it was a restaurant. It turned out to be a produce company, but because there was a recession and I needed work, IContinue reading “REGARDING JUICES: A VERY SHORT STORY”
