Year of the Dragon

So, 2012 will be the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar that is over 4,000 years old...amazing! Also amazing: tonight, on "Chopped" I saw something new to me...
Dragon Fruit!

What an insanely bizarre, yet beautiful food. You would never know that the inside and the exterior would be so completely different, yet complimentary to each other. I felt like it was a fashion statement the way the bright pink and green pod was filled with white flesh and black Parisian!

I have no idea what it tastes like but discovered it grows from some variety of just gets more and more interesting. Some interiors are bright pink. Wow.

This intriguing fruit reminded me that it is a good thing to
always be learning and always be curious.
You never know what you might discover.

Happy New Year

Stocking Stuffers

I know, I know, it's hard to believe that a week from today is Christmas Eve. At work we have a countdown calendar...and I hate being reminded of it daily because I'm just not "on it" for gifts and prepping. BUT, the good news is I have stocking stuffers for you!
Actually, anything in my shop is small enough to be a stocking stuffer so you can't lose.
I will be so happy to move from full time holiday working hours to part time after the new year...whew! This year I haven't said Happy Holidays ONCE. No matter what religion a person believes in, the reason for the holidays IS Christmas so that's it, there's no way around it, so I say.....there really is no good reason to consider other people and that they might be offended to hear those 2 words. Why did I ever worry about it in the first place? Diversity awareness can sometimes be counter

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
