Be Astounded

If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves. Thomas A. Edison I came across this quote one day painted on the wall of an elementary school that bears the name of its author. It’s a very good question. If we just did the things, we were capable of…

Sort of Quick Chicken Curry

It is humbling and exciting at the same time to be considered for this honor. The…

Taco Tuesday

Well, here it is—Taco Tuesday! I don’t know if Taco Tuesday is a thing other places across the country, but here in SoCal it’s pretty popular.
