Pine nuts are delicious — except when they make everything else taste like crap! The Pine Mouth Predicament.
“Hi. There is a movie showing tonight in your town that is important to me, as I am a film noir fan and rarely get to see it on the big screen. There is an 8:15pm show tonight only. Please be my guest!” That was the first message I received from The Libertarian through my […]
One of my secret pleasures is to eat saltine crackers, slathered with butter. The only thing better is hot French bread, slathered with butter. I think the key here is that the carbohydrate product needs to be slathered with butter. Unless it is graham crackers – then I like them slathered with vanilla frosting. So, […]
One of the pictures I have in my profile on my online dating site was taken on Halloween. I’m wearing my witch’s costume, complete with a tall, glamorous, feather-trimmed witch’s hat.
