My bits and pieces of writing are splayed all over the Internet. I follow Christ. I have been married for 45 years and a grandmother for 10 years. I am not very conscientious about responding to people's messages (sorry) but I do appreciate the 'idea' of being part of a social network. Thank you if you are in one of my circles!

So, this summer when our little Fil-Can granddaughters visited we went out and bought a ton of rice-- brown rice, brown Basmati, Jasmine rice, and plain old white rice.  While potatoes and beans are our starches of choice, our grandies prefer rice.  However...
