Well, it's a nightmare. Years ago my husband and I were separated for a couple years. We ended up putting things back together but by then he was working downstate and I was teaching at Northern Michigan University. So we had separate residences. My school loan repayment is based on my income alone because we … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Obamacare–Capital Gains
If you've been following my blog the last week or so, you know I de-activated my Facebook account because I was sick of the political barrage even from my closest friends. And of course, you know of my challenges taking care of my dad with Parkinson's, my son with Down Syndrome. I noted that I … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Gratitude

But it gives you an idea of the ramekin/oven -ready soup bowl size to use. This is a totally carnivore recipe and it's fabulous: Ingredients for two servings … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Shirred Eggs

Funny that dreams (in the sense of hopes and desires) is the same word as the one that describes how we spend 1/3 or more of … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Better
Hm, I am not quite sure that at your low point you aren't still alone and distinct from others--sometimes it doesn't seem to matter whether you're on that mountain or in that swamp with the frogs--you still feel alone. And maybe more alone down there because at least you can see the horizon from that … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Perspective
