I tried to post last Friday and I was just too defeated to do it. I sat in front of my computer many times and just couldn’t bring myself to write anything. We are on Day 35 of the government shutdown and morale is low. Very, very, low. I realize fully that unless you are […]

Nutella Swirl Banana Bread – a chocolate hazelnut twist on the classic banana bread recipe. The Internet can be a crazy place. I “met” a friend in a photography Facebook group. She and her husband were transferring to Germany, to another base in Germany, and was asking for some advice. I sent her some things […]
