Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day and weekend, and enjoy the pictures!
I’m weary – you know how, for those unfortunate castaways, a three hour tour turned into something a bit more? I’ve been helping my mom for months now and was just figuring out a twice-a-week, multi day/1-2 night visit plan and I’ve now been here full-time for a week and a half with no end in sight. Chemo is kicking her ass hard, but things are now being tweaked. And the tumor indicators are way down, so that’s a good sign but not the battle.
Also, my aunt is here for a bit and so I can go home for a few days and nights and restore. Seeing as I’m going to be here full-time once my aunt leaves, I’ve got some planning and moving of some stuff to figure out. At least I’ll be able to do it at (my, not my family) home.
There’s going to be some home health care and physical therapy, so it’s not going to be all on me, but as an only child of a widow (and a Freemason, who’s made oaths to support such, to boot!) I have to, don’t I? I mean, if anything is important, it’s taking care of your mom in need!
And no, I’m not really asking – it’s as clear as needing air to breathe. I’m just venting, hoping to encourage you all to honor your mother and father and try to well by them – it’s important.
On the all-positive, gustatatory front, my recipe for a ginger-mushroom-pork-kabocha stew was very well-received. If you’ve never cooked with kabocha (and I hadn’t until a couple of months ago), do it! They’re dense pumpkins that taste like the best sweet potato but have the texture of chestnuts. It is to yum. Cutting and peeling it is a chore, but it’s well worth it.
Have a good weekend everybody, now onto the pictures!
