My computer talks....

I love my MacBook!  A while ago while reading an article about Apple computers, I learned that my MacBook comes with software that allows it to talk!  It can read text to me!

So this morning while rushing to put on my socks and shoes... I highlighted some text on a website about raising chickens, hit command-z (the default on your mac) and learned about how a school teacher helped her students learn about chickens!

Very cool!  And now... off to work!

How to eat a Mango...

OK, so I joined a produce co-op called Bountiful Baskets.  Picked up my very first "basket" of fresh and delicious smelling fruit and veggies this past Saturday.

Included in my bounty... were Mangos!  Something that I never buy... didn't even know how to eat except someone mentioned that you don't eat the skin.

So I found this link:

We have a co-op!

Bountiful Baskets has arrived in our little town! We have our own little co-op of fresh fruit and veggies!

You should have seen the wonderful cooperation among the 15 to 20 ladies who all went to work... unloading the truck... parsing out the goodies. That statement, "many hands make light work" is so true! Two pallets of fresh fruit and veggies went home to 80 families!

In our baskets went...
brussell spouts
romaine lettuce
baby carrots
corn on the cob


I'm sure that I've forgotten something...

All for a contribution of $15! And everything is sooo nice and fresh... and tasty!

As soon as I figure out how to get the pictures out of my phone... I'll post them!

I made chicken salad sandwiches for lunch with sliced tomato and topped with romaine lettuce... and carrots on the side! So delish!!!!

a Girl's lunch out....

Took Mom out for lunch today. We enjoyed some fried fish at our little cafe downtown.

It was nice go out with Mom and to treat her!
