I decided I was tired of rice so I scrapped my original idea to make a chicken and rice casserole. I just browned my chicken thighs and then brown the following vegetables: asparagus, celery, mushrooms, and onion, in oil and butter. Then I dumped in a box of rotini pasta and 2 cups of vegetable […]
I sent an e-gift card to a friend this morning via the Amazon.com web site. I got the usual, customary Amazon confirming email indicating my order had been placed. Weirdly, about an hour later, I got a phone call from a local number which went to voice mail. Here is the voice mail. I thought […]

Don’t know where I ran across this on YouTube but it vanished and I recall making a copy of it because I was so taken with it. Glad I did. Enjoy. “Please Don’t Break My World” by Global Genius.
