Help, and Fresh Raspberry Muffins
I have been picking raspberries like nobody's business.  With N's help, actually.  She is an excellent picker; she doesn't want to stop until EVERY. LAST. BERRY. is in the basket, which is more or less my approach.  We make a good team, even if the berries ...

Feeling Smart, and Chopped Thai Kale Salad
I was having lunch with a friend today, a professor (who never taught me in his own class, oddly enough) at a place that I used to love in a former life.  I'd suggested getting together; despite an event in our relationship that almost ended it, I still enj...
I was having lunch with a friend today, a professor (who never taught me in his own class, oddly enough) at a place that I used to love in a former life. I'd suggested getting together; despite an event in our relationship that almost ended it, I still enjoy his company, and he's the sort of ...

#Microblog Monday: Rachel Dolezal, and the Phenomenon of Passing
My first encounter with the phenomenon of " passing " was a literary one, during a Harlem Renaissance class I took in college; we were reading Nella Larsen's novel Quicksand, which describes the friendship of two women who identify as Black, but can "pass" ...

Something Old, Something New: Lentil Salad with Halloumi
We picked up our first CSA share of the season on Sunday, and I brought it home with some mix of trepidation and joy.  I confess, I've been enjoying creative experimentation with food less than I used to, because sometimes it fees like too much work without...

I confess, I've been enjoying creative experimentation with food less than I used to, because sometimes it fees like too much work without enough external positive reinforcement: ...

#Microblog Mondays: Pacer
She told me that she wanted to run last year, when she was three.  Girls in tutus, sweaty, hair streaked with bright paint: she wanted to be out there with them, not just on the porch cheering them on.  I'd said maybe.  She has always been athletic, even in...

Frogger
About a week ago, we found a frog on our front porch.  Not a live frog, but a small brown plastic frog, which looked deceptively real.  We have a few prankster friends in the neighborhood, and it's not completely unusual for us to leave things on other peop...

We have a few prankster friends in the neighborhood, and it's not completely unusual for us to leave things on other people's doorsteps (though usually at holiday ...

A Moment of Non-SIlence
My heart is heavy tonight, as it has been since I heard the news about the shooting in South Carolina. Here we are again.  Talking. There are a lot of writers who have already put things better than I could ever hope to do.  That this is not about mental il...

Farewell
This week, I attended a memorial service for a young yogini, an artist, a gardener, a lover of beautiful things and animals.  She was my friend's sister, and I was deeply honored to be there to bear witness, to help celebrate her life and to grieve their un...

#Microblog Monday: Easy, and Six Minute (Vegan) Chocolate Cake

Just before I left for grad school in LA, I bought the Billie Holiday Decca Masters albums. They were a constant companion during those years, especially during the more languid days of July and August; there's nothing quite like hearing Billie croon "Summertime" when you're sitting in a bathtub ...

New Tricks
It's a litte embarrassing, in some respects, to admit how long I've been taking yoga.  Embarrassing because in all these years, I haven't gotten much better at it. Sure, I've improved my alignment, developed (and lost and developed and lost) strength and ba...

#Microblog Monday: On the Yak, and the Price of Free Speech
On April 17th, a young college student and member of a group called Feminists United was murdered in her apartment after attending a day of silence event raising awareness about bullying of sexual minorities on campus.  This is horrific enough.  But perhaps...

Basic Information
Gender
Female
I am a regular at American Tire and Auto of Flemington. I have found them to be fair, and to have competitive pricing. If I have a complaint about service, they do their best to resolve it (e.g. once after a repair I heard a continued noise, and they took it back twice to continue investigating the problem, free of charge). They stand by their work. I can always get an appointment, and the vehicle is ready when they say it will be ready. My one complaint is that sometimes I feel it's a bit too busy, and so they have to rush through their explanations of repairs and charges.
