Do you remember the Cold War or do you think the Cold War is what a grocery store wages against you when you come near the frozen food section? Do you like to read books that are located in places you’d love to visit? Do you believe all Nazis disappeared after World War II ended? Do you enjoy espionage books with lots of action, cool gadgets, a bit of romance? Do you think that if you ever really met James Bond, you’d find him insufferable? (more…)

I previously posted one of my favorite breakfast recipes (Whole Grain Pancake Mix by Julie Hasson, http://sustainabilitea.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/peter-please-its-pancakes/) ) but since there are seven days in week, you need some other breakfast choices, so I thought another favorite might be welcome.

After driving 2 days and over 1700 miles, I look forward to sitting on the Megabus for the 6 ½ hour ride from Chicago to Cleveland, even though it means I have to be up early to get to the Metra station for the express train into the city. A man asks if I need help getting my big suitcase onto the train and I’m thankful for the help, since the crush of people could be a problem. The train is completely full, so I hang back when we arrive, letting the crowd go by before heading for the restroom (try getting a suitcase and carry-on suitcase into a stall!!), then up the escalator to the street.

Mom’s Love Us. The subject line for an email from a restaurant advertising for Mother’s Day. They have wonderful food, but could use either some editing help or more knowledge about apostrophes and plurals.

I wake at 4 again this morning, eye the clock, then decide, “No, too early”, considering my later night last night and the faint caffeine and brain buzz that kept me just this side of the edge of sleep for awhile. Besides, today I don’t have to cross two time zones, losing two hours in one day. (more…)

As I leave the Phoenix area, the sun comes up behind the mountains, making them look black and one-dimensional. Driving a new car makes life interesting as I don’t know automatically where all the controls are. (more…)

We interrupt my road trip to bring you the following important message……
Bill’s (my husband’s) blood work came back showing NO CANCER MARKERS!!!
Other than thanking the Lord and thanking all our friends and family for their prayers and support since the end of last year, what more can or needs to be said? I want to keep seeing that face for many, many more years.

The perfect quote for a road trip of two 13+ hour days of driving:
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began. (more…)

Just in case I wasn’t sure where I was this morning, these boxes of grapefruit picked by my parents off fruit trees from their church would tell me I wasn’t in either Ohio or Illinois, but in the southwest (in this case, Arizona.) But after my two days’ stay, it was time to get into the car and hit the road. (more…)
