National PB&J Day

I didn’t know that we had a National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day in the United States, but I’ll be happy to celebrate it.  I missed out on Pie Day (March 14th) so this might make up for it. Portland, Oregon, is a national leader in food trucks (they are an obsession here), and we…

Sharing My World – Week 9

Here is my contribution to Share Your World for this week.  (Scroll to the bottom for more info on SYW.) How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?  Well, if I didn’t know how old I was then I wouldn’t have any measure to guess by, I suppose.  I would…
