All I know. Dashed off to Grants Pass yesterday for ink for my printer, the market for basics (found bell peppers, green red and yellow on sale so will be making something with them shortly), picked up mail, got cracked corn and home again. Movin' slow. Not much incentive. Where does it go???

Happy Sunday. Enjoy the football.

National Bicarbonate of Soda Day
Maybe National Bicarbonate of Soda Day falls so close to New Year's Eve owing to its old fashioned use as a hangover remedy and antacid. But we like to imagine that it is being honored for its great utility in the kitchen as baking soda! It helps dough to rise, and also makes a mean toothpaste. Good ol' bicarb!
