Random Questions: The Election

Normally, I refrain from commenting, but this year, 
I'm older and I don't care.

Why does Hilary yell so much?

Why does Bernie think he'll be President?

Why don't people like Ted?

Why is the the Donald, the Donald?

Why don't people realize that if something is illegal, they really should care?

Why do people think that, because someone says they didn't do it, but the evidence is there, that
maybe, they did commit the illegal act?

When someone says, "I really like the evangelicals.  I have my mother's bible," do people ignore the obvious.  That's just not true?
Why is it popular to be a "progressive" when that term  means nothing?

Why do people call abortion "Health care," when it's not?

Why is our society embracing lies, deceit, and corruption in our politicians?

How can we make it better?

Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) We had a snow storm this week.  9 inches of snow fell, but the drifts are higher than that because of the wind.  I was lucky.  I stayed safely inside my home.

2) It's fun to watch Pixie run in the snow.  She's old, and she doesn't run as fast as she used to run, but she loves the snow.  It looks to me like she has a smile on her face.

3) I'm very lucky.  My driveway was cleaned by 8:30 AM.  I didn't go any place that day, but if I had to go, I could have.

I made these! Gluten Free Cheese Sticks

One of the things I've learned about gluten free cooking is that the texture of the product might be very different than what you are used to eating.
This recipe, although very good, is no exception.
I found this recipe on Facebook.
You don't have to be on Facebook to access the recipe.
Here's the link.
If you like cauliflower,
you will love this recipe.
If you don't like cauliflower,
you will love this recipe.

You only need to remember, that the texture of these cheese sticks is not the same as bread sticks.

With the Superbowl coming up this weekend,  you might consider these as a lower calorie experiment.  There is a lot of cheese in this recipe.  I cut the amount of cheese in half to save some calories.  
The "cheese" sticks tasted good, but they aren't bread sticks. 
Would I make them again?
Yes, I think so.
They were good.

Worth Repeating: 10 Things about Me (Pixie)

1) In my house, no one gives me treats or feeds me, at least, that's what I tell my friends at Pet Expo.  Then THEY give me treats and THEY pet me. 
2) I really like junk food, at least, that's what my human says it is.  I don't think it's junk!  It's good food!
3) When I get hot, I sure do like those sponge baths!  They cool me off, and then I can sleep really well!
4) I still don't get it, but one day two men came into my house and took away my couches!  There were new couches there when I came back downstairs, and they were really more comfortable, but I don't know why they took my couches away.
5) I have a lot of friends who live near me.  Buck lives across the street with his human.  Gracie lives at the end of the block with her human.  Then there's my Auntie Helen and Uncle Curt.  They live next to Gracie and her human.  I really like all my friends.
6) I don't get it.  I know it's polite to sniff someone's butt, but my human says that we don't do that in this house.  I really don't get it.
7) My human knows Jenny who has two cats.  Those cats scare me.  I have to do what they tell me to do.  One time, I wanted to get on the couch at Jenny's house, Walter told me I had to sleep on the floor.  I did.  I don't get it.  He wasn't even on the couch with me.  Sheesh!  Those cats are sure bossy!
8) My human knows Nick.  I don't get to see him very often, but he sure loves me.  He's always telling me how pretty I am!  He rubs my ears!  He's not like those cats that Jenny has!
9) Another thing that I don't get are toys.  What are toys and why does my human want me to play with them?  Doesn't she know I'd rather sleep?  Then she wants to play "Where's Pixie?"  She can see me.  I don't get it!  Why doesn't she know where I am?
10) Life can be so confusing.   Sometimes I just shut my eyes and I am running in that ring chasing that rabbit.  That's so much fun!  And then I get to meet people!  I love people!  Sigh!   I love my dreams!
