Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

La ultima totopos de maiz...

Yep, here they are.  The best tortilla chips I have ever eaten.  How many bags of tortilla chips have you bought which turned out to be a colossal disappointment?  Okay, maybe colossal is a bit much, but I know that I've thrown out more commercial brands of chips than I've eaten.  Most of them are stale, thick and overly salted.  I'm spoiled by warm restaurant tortilla chips and the little hole-in-the-wall Mexican taquerias around here.  But I digress...  I found these amazing organic tortilla chips at Publix in the GreenWise section.  Sure, they're $3.99 a bag, but I guarantee you will eat them all.  They are thin and crispy and light as a feather.  Lightly salted, they are excellent with salsa or my own solution to pico de gallo that's too hot: mix it with sour cream to cool the heat and dip away!  I've been buying the lightly salted version, but they also have hot & spicy lime flavor and blue corn tortilla chips.  I told Ariela about them and when I said they were the ultimate corn tortilla chips, she laughed.  She explained that there is a funny expression in Nicaragua: la ultima coca-cola del desierto (literally the last coca-cola in the desert).  Loosely translated, it is essentially our American expression: all that and a bag of chips.
Well, this bag of chips is all that.
