Archives for the day of: December 29, 2016

I’m taking Jim’s suggestion about the meal fixin’s for the next three months and here is a recipe that I’m going to try first; albeit I may substitute a brisket instead of bison. Since I’m the only meat eater in the house (aside from the 20 odd catz AND I MEAN THAT IN BOTH SENSES OF THE WORD) , this should last me for days. ~~dru~~

Late December and there’s the sense and the feeling in the air that the winter has definitely set in.  I know what’s in store for us.  Weeks and days of weather that chills to the bone.  It’s almost soup and stew season for me once New Year’s Day has past.  Then we settle in for a long three months but we will fill the air with the smell of homemade beef stew or potato soup.

I wish I could say that it has been a good year 2016 for the world but it has been terrible! I am sure everyone knows what I am talking about. I really don’t want to write about it since it makes me feel so sad and depressed.

For me personally the first half of the year was good. The travel to Umbria in Italy was wonderful

The second half of the year was not so good. My doctor resigned and I was misfortune to get a new one who cut my medicine so drastically that I after 10 good years was back in the same pain. I have since changed doctor and as a result feel much better.


E ‘stato un anno molto negativo per il Mondo. Ad esempio, la guerra in Siria.
