And their cookies are WONDERFUL! Even I got a little taste.. Now I know this is a silly subject, but mama was a Girl Scout and is so happy that they taught her things like lashing twigs together to make picture frames (!) and how to put a slice of white, soft bread on a stick and then dip it in condensed milk and then roll it in coconut an toast it over a...

(With thanks to The Guardian for this wonderful photo) Not a bad idea, or at least removing from the state the bigoted, fearful Arizonians who felt that business owners had the right to discriminate against gays in their shops and who were about to vote for a Senate Bill that  “would have given business owners with ‘sincerely held’...

Well, we did it last year. Why not this one?  It is a bit early for seeds, but what the heck–look what came up last time! Okay, I’ll water.  And fertilize, if I have anything to say about it…haha. Hey, mama, you haven’t composted this yet!! How am I supposed to grow seeds in a compost-less garden? ARGGGGGG!!! If mama sees one of...

Man, that was one scraggly oiseau! I love to write for mama.  Often she is just too emotional to write a letter herself and so I put her thoughts into my blog and hope they land in the right hearts.   For several days, she has received mail from a very old friend whom she never sees because of distances that cannot always be crossed, but I know when she...

Market Day

It’s Sunday again and off they go—to market, to market to buy a fat hen—well, at least the product of a fat hen, which are sold throughout our little market on Wednesdays and Sundays.  Today being Sunday, they won’t be back until lunchtime because the anthros meet out along the sea and chat and hear the latest gossip and watch the boats sail by...

  Revolt in Cairo, 1700s…history repeats itself yet again. Protestors in Ukraine Will anyone in a position of power ever GET IT?  Mr. Putin, specifically.  Thank heaven I am NOT his kitty.  Ever since the Arab Spring and the uprisings of the awakening populations of so many countries in the last 5 years, it is clear to this kitty that people do...

Whoa…mama’s kind of place!!! I don’t think I’m going, but mama asked me to query any of our British friends out there about things to do in London if you only have 7 days and 4 of them are with kid and grandkids. Any ideas. If they take me, I’m headed straight for the Palace, Buckingham, that is, to make those guards laugh and...

More of our little ville—I’d go out in one of those catalan boats if I had my breaststroke mastered… Mama’s asking me to write a little more about our neck of the woods (now where did that come from?) because then she might be able to tempt her ex-sis-in-law to come see us more often, and others, of course, but then we never know...

Oh, if I only had a snowboard… I am loving these Olympics, but how do those snowboarders survive, for heaven’s sake.  And the race they had yesterday made me cover my eyes several times–they come so close to one another and they are really hauling donkey, if you ask me. Now the skaters, women’s single short show was really...

Just cook a few carrots until tender and add them to these nice potatoes and whip them up in a food processor with a small carton of yogurt and serve! Mama and papa both are just about up to here with food fashion, foodies, and finicky eaters.  Every time mama says something like “This is full of vitamin A” or “These vegetables are really...

MINE, ALL MINE!!! PS Those are not my paw prints… I just realized that a lot of you out there have no idea of where I lay my little head at night and also the perks of living near the sea. As in, one GIANT CATBOX just around the corner.  Of course, they don’t allow kitties on the beach, but then again, there are no signs and there are signs for...

“WHENNNN the moon hits your eye like a big… Don’t these people ever stop?  After a duplicate lunch of the same menu from last night, mama and papa are making pizza for their regular Sunday night ritual.  This after having found decent mozzarella at our local Intermarche.  I like that juice it comes in, the whey?  I just call it the...

Squash ready to brown in a hot oven. Oh, boy, mama’s cookin’ boeuf bourguinon for guests tonight (and tomorrow’s lunch!) and my little salivary glands are workin’ overtime!  It’s really simple or at least it looked that way to me—she chopped up some meat and some carrots and some onions and browned them all in olive oil and...

Count the syllables in this valentine. You’ll be surprised! Let’s talk about love.  Mama says it’s hard to talk about because some loves are different from others and brother love is not sister love is not husband/mate/partner love of one’s life and puppy love and young love and first love are all in separate categories, but guess...

And I AM all keyed up over my blog readers, so thank you from the bottom of my little kitty heart for coming to my blog, If you ever have anything to say, I’d love to hear it. Politics, music, art, poetry, sports (Roma lost, by the way, and I just had to leave the room; I...

Well, here’s my friend, Mya, but I just realized that what she has in her bocca is a KITTY! Holy tamale, how did I miss that?  Well, that’s okay, because I have a little stuffed doggie full of catnip that I chew on every now and then.  Frankly, I’m ready for a rest what with all these skaters zipping around (and unfortunately, taking...

I forgot to backup my computer and mama got a bit upset with me and I couldn’t use the computer because of so many things going on and so tomorrow I’ll just have to make up for it by telling you all of the amazing things that...

Waiting to taste recipes from Chef Julian, Caesar of the Vegans! Well, since mama cooks a lot of Italian food and has written a book on Roman cooking, I’m pretty used to good smells around here and every now and then I get a little tidbit of stracotto or osso buco or pasta alla putanesca and so on, but now I’ll be getting tastes of the recipes...

Julia Lipnitskaia–poetry on ice! I am very disturbed by the AOL news yesterday about the ex-pairs figure skater, Irina Rodnina, who jogged with ex-hockey player, Vladislav Tretiak, to light the Olympic flame in Russia.  She is the same woman who tweeted a terribly offensive photograph on her site of our beautiful, elegant president (and now has taken...
