I have captured two wild yeasts inside my kitchen. I suppose I should be concerned that I harvested the yeasts under the plants on the table we use for dinner,
I have been a slug about writing for my blog, partly because I’m not sure anyone reads it, and partly because I am lazy. However, I decided I am going to try to write something every Thursday, even if it’s gobbledegook. So, here goes. I have been working on too many things lately, which has […]
I tried making this recipe at home. It is very delicious and similar to what we had on our trip at the Hominy Grill restaurant.
“THAT is no country for old men,” – Sailing to Byzantium by William Butler Yeats. Yeats could have been talking about computers as far as I am concerned.

After the thing with the battery this morning, we headed over to the gas station to fill up. This summer, we have been using the old 4/40 air conditioning, so Patsy lowered her window, but mine didn’t move. This was not good. While I was filling the tank, I looked in the owner’s manual and […]
