A fascinating story.
About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
“Through These Doors: the Manoir at Bout L’Abbé” tells of the German occupation of Normandy…

I am a divorcee. I am also a second wife (the remarriage kind, not the polygamy kind), a stepmom, and a frustrated ex-wife.
Ask anyone who truly knows me: very often, I have to learn things that hard way. Unfortunately, this sometimes comes at the expense of those around me. My poor decisions that led up to my first marriage (which was also a poor decision) created a world that now creates a harsh reality for me and my children. That reality is a split living…Continue

Well, Helen Mirren (and the women who played her character at age 25) just kicked some Nazi-ass in The Debt and it was awesome!
I am not one of the overly feminist gals, trust me. I am all for equality but don't think we are…Continue

Gardening is not just a hobby; it is a full-scale war with battalions to lead, enemies to conquer, multiple fronts to manage, and the unpredictable weather that can make or break a battle plan. It requires, skill, strategic acumen, luck, and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.
I, of course, am the Supreme Commander of the Allied Gardening Forces. My army of corn, tomatoes, radishes, zucchini, and other equally important divisions fight daily to produce the most beautiful and luscious…Continue
