I recently bought some Bryer's frozen dessert that looks and tastes like chocolate ice-cream. These ice-cream-like concoctions are packaged in individual servings, each of which is labeled 100-calories. The desserts are delicious an... Read more

I've been troubled with neck pain & headaches all week and so I decided to purchase a therapeutic pillow to see if that would help. I bought an Obus pillow. It's made of memory foam and wraps around the neck like a collar. Unfortunately, ... Read more

Dave set up the air-conditioner in our bedroom/office. It's nice, during the hot weather, to have a cool room to shelter us from the heat. For my trusty air-conditioner, I'm grateful.... Read more

From the dollar-store, I bought a little border for my front garden. The border is made from wood, painted deep green and it looks like a mini picket-fence. David hammered the border in last evening and it looks just lovely against the red... Read more
Toward a new walker...

My walker is old and wobbly. The brakes don't work and it no longer locks in position. Recently, while crossing a busy street, the darn thing collapsed. I fell on top of the collapsed walker and then onto the asphalt. It was this frightening... Read more

I had a wonderful Mother's Day this year. Dave gave me a dozen red roses and both my sons phoned with Mother's Day greetings. I gifted myself with a pretty hair pin/elastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. For the experience of ... Read more
