Today was sparkling clear with the crisp chill of a Northeast autumn, our version of a winter day. We set out for downtown St. Petersburg with high hopes for a parking space and outdoor seating on the sidewalk in front of our favorite raw food restaurant, Leafy Greens. And the Gods were smiling upon us.Continue reading “Half Moon over Leafy Green”
This is my all time favorite musical group. They were called Ari and the Alibis, but they are now going by Ariella, whether it’s the full band or just Ari and her husband guitarist Nicholas Kraster. Ariella McManus leads the band with vocals, many her original songs. The following story of love and redemption isContinue reading “Our favorite band”
Road trip! A short one, but full of promise. Mt. Dora is one of Florida’s hidden gems so we’re off for a ride in the country.

We used to useContinue reading “What’s for dinner-Fried Rice”

I used a can of mushroom soup and usually baked it with crumbled potato chips on top. My tastes have changed a bitContinue reading “Grilled Tuna Steak-Day 2”
No time for breakfast this morning, just the usual combo of blueberries, strawberries and bananas with soy protein powder and coconut cream. Protein and fat, check. Antioxidants, check. Can you guess the hidden ingredient?
For the past few years my mother has been going to her local library for free tax preparation but this service has become another casualty of the Covid-19 epidemic.

We just discovered a fun streaming channel with live hosts. The ones we’ve seen so far have been walking tours of interesting parts of Paris, a walk down the Seine toward the Eiffel tower and a walk around the Isle de Louis in the Seine.
