Thanks for visiting this website!
I hope that you’ll find an article, poem, or recipe that will somehow brighten your day!
If you have a school-age child, you may want to check out “Ask a Teacher” with Nancy Downing. She’s a former USA Today Teacher of the Year and has some great ideas!
And if you like poetry, please spend a few minutes reading some of Rita Goodgame’s beautiful poems. She’s a gracious lady who has such a gift for words!
Now, what woman doesn’t like a new recipe! Just head over to the recipe section of this site, and you’ll learn how to make Mexican Cheesecake, Spicy Cocoa Muffins, and much more.
For those of you with grandchildren, I think that you’ll enjoy browsing through the posts in The Grand Connection.
