Sleeping Woman (1935) A beautiful piece of art by Tamara de  Lempicka (see link below)

Dead to the World

Eyes open. A thought bubbles to the surface: “I’m awake.” Awareness skips across my consciousness forcing me to stir. I resist. I burrow deeper into the folds of the duvet. I will bury myself alive today, tomorrow and the next.

“DITTO!” was all it took to bring tears to me eyes. You wouldn’t think one word at the end of a tweet from someone you don’t “know,” retweeted by someone else you don’t “know,” would make you cry. But it

Tootsie

The Lost and Found

Amazing grace. The words “lost and found” always make me think of amazing grace. Not of lost mittens or keys or caps or a single red shoe. Nor of the “lost and founds” one must call in search of them.

This is what a “fumerist” does…

Veteran comedian Kate Clinton describes herself as “a faith-based, tax-paying, America-loving political humorist and family entertainer,” and “fumerist” (feminist humourist). She’s a lesbian. She’s also witty and funny. She celebrates her 66th birthday today (November 9, 2013).

I first posted this recipe here and then tweaked and revised it to make the almonds crunchier (which I prefer). If you like your almonds chewier, use the original version. Ingredients About 1 pound raw almonds About one heaping tablespoon
