Ax, you are so not expendable!!
Going back to my baking soda and vinegar for cleaning bathrooms!!
Isn't it odd that things like this happen when we are not at our best? I've noticed that. I've had kind of a bad week due to some decisions that had to be made that I am not entirely in agreement with. I'll get over it, but a bit upset now. I need to change my focus to the things that I am thankful for and not the one thing that is upsetting me.

Sometimes one can't get something off their mind--I know about that.

Guess they captioned the pic in error--Idea was, I gave you the medal--:)

The day was well--much going on--I live in a rural area and lots of fireworks.
G'daughter had her B'day on the 2nd so that was celebration enough for me.

I can, about 20 miles away is a watermill---built around 1850's and grinds each day.--nothing better--slow, stone ground--will post a pic.
The nearest Kroon is in Williamsburg, Virginia, but it's only for show.

The stool?--Wo?--is it in the Milkmaid Painting?

Ajla---John Wesley Halls Mill--still operates at the State Park, about 20 miles from me.
Slow Stone Ground.

The Flume comes in from the left and flows over the water wheel--powering the works.

Have a lot of B&W 6cm. format pics of it, spent the whole day taking pics of all aspects, of course buried somewhere--

Walking back across the bridge from the mill, fate dealt me the right scene and conditions for a pic--when I had the negatives printed, they wanted permission to post it their gallery permanently.

I said, "why not--the picture credit goes to--fate,not me;; I just tripped the shutter"

It will,-be sure to brush the top with bacon grease or oil--your pref--before putting in oven.

We always had Catheads, some Fatback Bacon or Sweet Potatoes on the stove everyday, cruise by, grab a snack and Go On---

I need help? I can't remember what thread offered this website?

http://www.activistpost.com/2010/07/...ll-street.html

I sent it to my daughter in DC who works for USDA. Here is her response:

"Have not heard anything on this report. Get in the habit of eating less would probably be as beneficial, and more healthy. Honestly, if the conditions on the planet came to the point of having to protect myself with weapons to keep from being killed, or killing for food, I think it’s time to go. I’d rather stock up on a quick and painless way to do that – take less room also."

Just wanted to share some thoughts from my daughter of one who is there working for us. Yikes!!!

Ax,
me and the wife walk an hour everyday, schedule and time permitting, down by the river at the Island Heights boardwalk. Usually after dinner. I always feel better when we walk. The doc is right on the money. You will last longer if you listen to him.
