Share your world – 25th Feb 2020

Questions: What do you think of best friends of the opposite sex?  Or to put it another way “Can men and women ever be platonic friends?  Doesn’t sex always get in the way?”  Damn silly if you ask me, I have had loads of friends that are men, and trust me they are purely platonic. I…

Happy New Year – 2020

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2020? As a kid that was science fiction era, (if you discount Back the future set in 2019, lol). There are no flying cars, well not in mass production. I still have to eat food prepared mostly by humans and there is no world peace. So many…

Mondays Musings…

Last week was spent last-minute editing and writing Christmas articles for Photofocus.com. I wanted everything just about done so I can relax. I think the mission completed.

Share your world – 7th August 2019

I am running a day late on SYW, mostly as I have been pondering this week’s questions. They are dire indeed. This world at times can be such a crappy place, and some people do such crappy things to other people. And not just crappy, downright evil as well. I try not to dwell on…

Share your world – 11th June 2019

I was writing the date for the headline of this post and had a brain fart, was it really June? OMG, this year is as bad as last year, the days disappearing, true I had a pretty slack weekend and vegged on the couch, or out to lunch or dinner with Hubby and friends or…

The Family Cookbook

This post may seem a little random but bare with me. I have a cookbook, it’s quite old I think it was given to me when I first moved out of home, some 35 years ago. I have handwritten recipes in it, I used to cook ALL the time, cakes and slices and lasagna and…
