My new recipe bbq kale chips are super yummy! And I’ve another idea I’ll try soon. Is it just me or can you see the shape of a dog wearing a sweater sitting between the chips? lol.
Happy Birthday to two lovely chihuahuas! (ages 3 & 10 years)
Good day! :)
By my age I’ve learned two key relationship skills, the “I Statement” and otherwise avoiding “you”, that I try to use as much as possible.
The “I Statement” simply goes like this: “When you do/say __________, I feel _________.” We’re all entitled to our emotions and expressing them. This is a way to express feelings without provoking the other person or escalating matters.
Other than in an “I Statement”, try to avoid using the word, “you”, unless it’s a compliment. Otherwise it may very likely put the person you’re speaking to on the offensive. It’s just human nature.
I’ve found these two skills effective at creating peace, love, and harmony in relationships whether they be intimate, family, friends, or co-workers.
I’ve been using these for years and have had some success, but still have a ways to go (especially given my challenges). They take time to implement, so have patience and keep trying.
Peace, love, joy, best always.
Lolita the orca was captured off the coast of Washington state at a young age and has been enslaved and imprisoned in a tiny tank at Miami Seaquarium and forced to perform unnatural stunts for food for 40+ years. Meanwhile her family pod is still swimming together in the ocean and her Mom still calls out to her and she still calls out to her Mom after 40+ years. In the wild orcas swim 100+ miles per day in close knit family units. Orca’s brains have advanced capacity to communicate and love. It’s time to retire Lolita first to a sea pen and then the wild ocean to live out her natural life with her family.

2016/11/01 Update: I like the ideology of this party, but think the process of forming a 3rd party probably takes way too long and it’d be quicker to run as an Independent and it’s cool that they say they’ll endorse any candidate who takes their oath.
I had fun going to Meetup events with my friend, Eddie. First we went to “Learn How To Compost” by Lee Dwyer of Groundwork Somerville at Somerville Community Growing Center where we learned about indoor & outdoor composting with about twenty other gardeners. I’ve kept an outdoor compost pile since 1991 and learned from my Dad who composted grass clippings, weeds, leaves, and fruit and vegetable scraps. Then we went to Whole Foods and bought some raw fresh figs which were very delicious! Next we went to Boston University’s Marsh Chapel for a “Vegan Standout” with MARC, the “Barnyard Trio”, and about twenty vegans. The events were posted on Boston Raw Food Meetup and Boston Vegan Meetup.
