Voter Supression

lmpvI don’t usually do political things but this is really something. Sarah Silverman is hilarious and really does a great job in explaining the voter suppression situation that’s taking over our election process.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Mom

mom2Happy Birthday Mom! I know she would have loved the party but not the advancing age. I always thought of her as a little kookie, creative and a wheeler dealer. She was smart, tall, thin and beautiful. One of the greatest gifts she gave me was the confidence to do anything I wanted. She always […]
