Broccoli salad packs a powerful crunch. The vegetable is also chockful of nutrients. Not a fan of broccoli? Accent it with bacon, sunflower seeds and raisins. Many variations of this recipe also call for cubed or grated cheddar cheese for extra zip. (www.yummly.com)

The Family Tree: Getting Beachy

Just yesterday I had the privilege of dipping my toes into the Pacific Ocean. It’s my last hurrah of the summer season as schools all across Texas eagerly get anxious to ring those bells. Every year around this time, the turning of the calendar changes my carefree mood and I lament as I glimpse the lazy hazy days of summer quickly slipping away. This year, I decided to do something about it and the perfect solution was right in front of me. I hopped on an airplane, surprising my husband as he left for a business trip to San Diego. California here we come!

 

On the other hand: Remorse Returns

Pam and I have had the same email address since 1997. That year we first got an email account when we lived in Boston. We found that with our nomadic military lives of moving every two years or so that it helped to keep in contact if we just kept the same email address.
Of course, that was all before Facebook. But my point is we found it easier and more helpful to us to keep the same email account these past 17 years.
