I have been off line here on my word press; its my deepest apologies, I have been really busy with my daily schedule, and work hours constantly changes from nights to days; and days to nights, as we are working short handed, one of our staff left to Texas, in a hurry to tend to her sick folks…this really rares me out; I hope to share more poetry soon, and more of my art work as well… The good news is I am getting my guitar; fixed, and tuned; so I can start up practicing playing it again:))) Smiles; however I am a little rusty with it; But, thanks for checking my blogs out; I’ll check back later on everyone to see how you all are doing; Take care and God bless;)) Deb
Awakened by Grief and ascended in love I was asked to take part in a writing adventure once again by Barbara Franken, a wonderful lady with a beautiful blog. You can view her inspiring website at: http://memymagnificentself.com/ I was asked to write about my experiences […]
1 large white onion, or any other onion, you prefer, diced;
3 garlic-cloves diced up;
1 tablespoon apple-cider vinegar
2 teaspoons molasses
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
Hefty pinch of red peeper flakes;
4, 15- cans beans, drained and rinsed,
Kosher salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Set a medium oven-safe pot over medium heat and add the bacon.
Cook, stirring, until most of the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp, about 8 minutes; remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon to drain.
Add the onion, garlic and ginger to the drippings in the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, about 5 minutes.
Add the tomato paste and cook until the color deepens, about 1 more minute.
Add the root-beer, vinegar, molasses, mustard, red pepper flakes, into the pot. Stir, then bring to boil.
Add the beans and three-quarters of the bacon and gently stir so the beans don’t lose their shape. Reduce the heat to medium and low to simmer, until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes, then season with salt and pepper.
Transfer to the oven and bake, uncovered, until thick, about 30 minutes.
Let cool slightly, then top with remaining bacon.
You, may barrow recipe to use, but its not for sale; just sharing it;)) Happy-Baking;))

Next month, I’ll launch my latest novel, the prehistoric fiction, Born in a Treacherous Time:
Lucy and her band of early humans struggle to survive in a world where nature rules, predators stalk them, and the next species of man threatens to destroy Lucy and everything she understands.
If you read To Hunt a Suband loved the cameos of Lucy, the ancient female, Born in a Treacherous Time reveals her life, why she appeared to Kali as sad, and how she set off on what would be man’s African exodus. Also: Learn how to knap tools, steal carcasses from Scimitar-tooth cats, and avoid the many dangers that preyed on early man.
With a planned publication date of June 7, 2018, here’s how I’m doing:

Two early great reviews
If the Kirkus review hadn’t come out good, I would have buried…
