You Go Girl

If you've followed this blog for a while or my old blog
"Wanna Buy a Duck" I'm sure you've heard me mention
my life long friend Marilyn. 

Marilyn is in training. Training for what, you might ask. 
Training for a triathlon to be held August 6. 
Not so unusual but Marilyn is 78 and triathlons are a passionate hobby for her.
You could say she is always in training because her exercise week is divided up by
swimming, running and biking.

I would never even get started at the gate, but I'm the one waiting at the finish
line,  flouncing the pom poms. I am bursting with energy when I watch her
commitment to her workout schedule.

She will be coming for a visit next month, driving her van with her bike
in it's rack. There is an olympic size pool at the Y and plenty of running
space here. She can do her thing while I hoe my spuds.

I planted potatoes yesterday and my Fed Ex guy said I'm late.  They should
have been in the ground by St. Paddy's Day. But then I read in the Farmer's
Almanac that we should never plant potatoes in the sign of Pisces and March
 17 is still Pisces. Oh dear, what to do!  I just got some old sprouted
organic red potatoes from my daughter. Nice sprouts but
Lily started chewing on them and  poof went some of the long sprouts.

Have a happy week and you A to Z'ers are on the home stretch.

My answer was, "No Way."

I was in Bozeman for my weekly appointment when
a friend came up to me and asked if I heard that Assad
had released a killing gas on his people and there 
were videos all over the internet of Syrian people and
many small children dying from breathing this chemical. 
     "No way," was my response. I do not believe Assad would delibertly release a
deadly gas on his people nor did I believe he was guilty of the same thing four
years ago.  I don't think any country is supposed to be stockpiling that kind of
gas so I guess just having it could be a crime.

It really makes no sense at all but smacks more of False FLAG,  False FLAG.
Everything seems to be just kind of OK now...... no major crises and one fine
morning, Assad just decided to gas some of his people and especially the
children. Nothing tugs at the heart-strings, like watching little kids die and puts
Americans in a war-revenge mood. Some sources even suggested the  videos
were staged.

The next morning I woke up to the news that Trump had ordered an air strike
 on a Syrian air strip as a warning to Assad.  A warning for what? No proof
of anything.  Why so fast?  Is Trump another Allen Dullas and pulled the
wool over everyone's eyes. I would hate to harbor that thought for even a
moment.  It seemed to be common knowledge that the UN wanted Assad out
and Niki Haley was over there condemning Assad.

I saw too much of Allen Dulles' moving into countries where we had no
business to be, ousting Mossadegh from Iran in 1953, followed by deposing
Jacobo Arbenz from Guatemala and always setting up his own puppet
government. False Flags usually anger the people enough to accept our
government going in for the natural resources as the prize. Ha

Trump was so adamant about staying out of Syria on his campaign
promises. I know many Trump supporters who are now fearful that he is
pulling an FDR move.  FDR's campaign promise was that the Mother's
would never see their son's fight on foreign soil. Right. After being
elected, how long did that promise last.

Many of us are praying that this is a one time occurance and that
President Trump will hold fast to his promises. He has always talked
about our countries debt and that little air strike was another 90
million shot up like fireworks. Perhaps I'm not seeing the big
picture, but my gut tells me I am.

I hope history isn't repeating itself......as the saying goes.

Attempt at a Blueberry Pie

I am using new baking flour, an ancient non-hybrid wheat
flour known as Einkorn.  This miracle flour is touted to 
possess all the characteristics of the wheat grown when 
I was young, meaning, causing NO WHEAT ALLERGIES.

It makes very sticky dough and working with it takes some practice. I was so
frustrated making this pie that I almost threw the whole thing out but the crust
is most delicious. What I did throw out, was all my old wheat flour and I'm
definitely going to "stick" with this one (pun intended). lol

My previous Einkorn baking experiment was Kefir Sourdough Bread. It took 5 days of
preparation and then I forgot the salt but delicious in-spite-of.

I hated to cook, didn't even like to be in the kitchen but I did appreciate good health.
I came to the realization long ago that if I wanted good health, I'd have to cook.
Now, when I prepare nutritious, healthy food, I actually enjoy being in the
kitchen and I am absolutely in "good health heaven" to have discovered Einkorn
flour. If your cooking/baking is centered around good health, check out this one.
