  • Wellness Allergy

    Work has a wellness program. One component involves a website that purports to educate users about healthy eating. The funny thing to me is that I was not going to participate at all until I found out that had potentially an allergy issue. So, I thought, why not try it? Maybe it can provide some…

  • Resolutions For 2009

    Read 10,000 pages of science, economics, health, history, or policy books. For 2008, it was read 25 books.

  • Hildegard’s

    I like Hildegard’s here in Valdosta. I just do not seem to get there often.

  • Improperly Placed Insects

    My mother found a bug in her salad while at a restaurant a couple weeks ago. The manager was horrified, gave us a free desert, and apologized profusely. Mom was not disgusted because this is the first bug she has found in perhaps 200-250 salads she has had from this place. Maybe more…. We go…

  • Med Night Cuilinary Guild

    Looking at Mediterranean dessert recipes for Med Night Cuilinary Guild. Some ideas: Date with bananas Baklava Baked apples with honey syrup (actually my mom made this once when I was a kid… I loved it) Will probably do the baked apples. Much easier than Baklava. The last thing I cooked was (and pizzas do not count)……


    Atlanta Bread Company was good. Now… just need to have a nap before going back to work, right?
