Something about me

I started this blog simply to enjoy myself writing bits and pieces of life, especially the cheap bits.  And no, not in that way!  At one time in my life, I was raising kids on about $100 a week and spent every Christmas browsing through the Sally Ann for gifts.  It was a dream to figure out how to feed us all well and nutritiously on practically nothing.  One way is to do volunteer work at your local organic grocery store–something I didn’t really enjoy, but I got a 10% discount of food for doing it.  Anyway, I had to find food they’d eat and that was also cheap.  One day, I thought, I’ll write a book about how to do this.  And here I am.  This is a modern book.

Here’s a picture of one of my “kids” that survived that era.  He’s the big male.  The smaller one is my very great friend, Damian, a gold nugget in my arsenal of precious gems.  The lovely lady is Philip’s wife and inspiration:  Trudy.  Oh yes, the big male’s name is Philip.  Looks like he got enough to eat back in the day!???????????????????????????????

Here are pictures of the other two who “suffered” through a vegetarian youth. Stephanie and Robin.  These three are the jewels in my crown!Stephanie off to IstanbulRobin and me
