If you are watching the TV tube, you see all sorts of reports saying new cases and deaths due to COVID-19 are holding steady overall. You will also see the curve is rising, and in some cases rising dramatically in some states (Google Arizona). Reputable reporters, commentators, and journalists are sounding the alarm. Unfortunately, I… Continue reading COVID-19 Has Ended
Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people. We… Continue reading Democrats: Where are you?!
Photosource: https://thevillagereporter.com/minneapolis-police-station-torched-amid-george-floyd-protest/ Reading through all of the protest and riot news today, two things are stuck in my mind.

We all made sure to keep any eye on one another’s places… Continue reading We Have Great Neighbors!

Essential travel restrictions will no longer be in effect. Gatherings can increase to 25. Social distancing must still be practiced. Later… Continue reading Stages of Release…Are We Ready?
One of the ways I’m trying to stay connected with friends and neighbors is through baking (duh!, right?). If they have said they liked something I’ve made in the past or if stated something was their favorite, that is what I’ve tried to make for them. Some of the items have been no-bake cookies, banana… Continue reading First Gluten-Free Baked Good
You wouldn’t think an introvert would utter he misses his family and friends, especially since he treasures, seeks, and needs time alone. But I do, I miss my family and friends. One of the reasons for moving back to the Midwest was to be closer to my family. I’d be able to drive over for… Continue reading I Miss My Family and Friends
