A few ideas of where to stop for a meal lunch or dinner for your vegan Valentine. I've written about these places before with the exception of Namaste Cafe and I am not sure why I haven't written about them because they are great. Let's start with Pizza Nea. I've... Continue reading

It's no secret that POTUS is a size queen. Numbers and ratings are all that matter. This is one of the first times that I can remember that I will not watch the State of the Union and whereas I know it is tempting to do so since it will... Continue reading

I was going to put up a post today about Vegan Valentine's Day food and where to get it and maybe I will do it today but likely tomorrow-I changed my mind because I came across some stuff about Climate Change in Minnesota that is worth taking a look Continue reading

Another way I decided to take a chance creatively was by opening a shop on Society6. I am not a professional photographer in anyway. However, I do really enjoy taking photos. Most especially of flowers and the outdoors. I know it's a cliche, but these things can get you through... Continue reading

Since this about the one billionth post on the internet about Versailles I'm not going to get too much into it except for a few thoughts. If you decide not to do a tour private or otherwise, the best advice I have for you is to get up and get... Continue reading

For all the crap things that happened in 2017, the really bright spot in my life was traveling. Starting first and foremost this time around with Paris - somewhere I have wanted to visit my whole life. When a dream is fulfilled, it's a strange feeling to not have a... Continue reading

I haven't done one of these in a while and for some reason I'm really into Valentine's Day ideas right now. I don't often care much, but this year I do. Who knows? Maybe I feel like there's a need to celebrate love and massacre. So here is a list... Continue reading

This year has brought with it a wave of awareness I would say we haven't really seen before in this country. Even for myself, who has been doing my best for a very long time to stay abreast of the things I want to see changed and diving deeper into... Continue reading

As mentioned in a previous post, I've been working on finding projects and creating things as a way to focus my anger, stress, and absolute bafflement of why people are allowing the world to be controlled by horrendous people. One of the smaller steps I took was to put together... Continue reading

It has been sub-zero temps for weeks now in Minnesota and if you're anything like me you don't want to leave the house more than you absolutely have to which luckily for me is not much these days. However, it is actually supposed to "warm up" to about 30 degrees... Continue reading

2017 is a year I've started referring to as the Empire Strikes Back. Because it feels to me that there is a decreasing in size group of people who seem to think the only way to be is the way that they are and that way to be is narrow-minded,... Continue reading

December is a strange month for me. It seems to both fly by and drag on forever. It is a mix of holidays, art successes and failures as well as the anniversary of my mother's death is in this winter chaos. I have been thinking all week about what a... Continue reading

Some completely lovely humans invited me to bring some objects and books of my own creation to add to their gallery they opened this year. I get my hair colored here, and well it's a wonderful and magical place. Not like how everyone uses the word magical because they can't... Continue reading

A second Featured Album I have on Facebook is party snaps. These are from parties I've helped plan and host as well as decorate through the years. You can sure tell when our(mine) photography skills got better and I got a better camera. These are from NYE, a cute one... Continue reading

Back in August while on my way to chase the eclipse, I took a side stop to a place I didn't know existed until a photographer I fell in love with a couple of years ago announced she was having a show there. The Paine is an English style estate... Continue reading

I don’t actually shop at Trader Joe's very much. A handful of times a year. I rather think of it as a special occasion place and party food place. Which is what works for me personally. I suppose this might be because they specialize in pre-prepared foods and things covered... Continue reading

A site was recently using for examples of what makes a good feminist ally. I wrote a little bit about my own partner Matthew. This is what I wrote: First-he does not expect a gold star for doing housework. He just does it because as he's pointed out to other... Continue reading

As someone who works at home most of the time I found myself in need of places to go to get out of my own head once in a while. This is especially true as I am also an obsessive news reader and each day brings with it untold stress... Continue reading

I’ll start with the food. New Things We Tried: Produce Exchange- The peaches are amazing. They have lots of other fruit as well. Fresh French Fries-These were quite good and not as greasy as I thought they would be. Harry Singh’s-Chickpea Roti was so good that we went back so... Continue reading

I am always a little surprised when people don't know about the crazy shit in their own state. I don’t mean about politics because that is raining on us everyday. And as someone who lived in Texas for over a decade I can confidently say that politics is not crazy... Continue reading
