Happy Birthday, Mom; the Party was Lovely

It’s not every day that your mom celebrates 80 years. So we all got together & chipped in, cash and effort, to hold a reception for mom’s celebration. Oh, nothing too elaborate; she’s not that kind. A reception at a hall in the village, a few hours of chatting, sharing and eating. (Lots of […]

Dinner Party Crepes, Brazilian Style (With Extras)

Some weeks ago we received a kind invitation from one of PJ’s coworkers, to dine in their home. Sadly, before we could get there I came down with the ‘flu and we had to beg off. I’m sure the thought of missing out on fine Brazilian cuisine prepared by a native slowed my recovery […]

Partying at the White House isn’t as exciting as other places. We had a bodacious dominoes game, some folks were playing Magic: The Gathering on the side, and a few of us were trying out Flight Simulator X. (We re-learned the old saying about flying: “If, after you land, you need full power to taxi […]

Tis the Season: Hearty Party Fare

Now that we’re safely past Thanksgiving week we can forget about eating, right?

Wrong. It’s party season!

School parties, work socials, you name it. You’ll probably have to suffer through go to six or more parties in the run-up to Christmas. More if you have children, or belong to any clubs. You only get out of some […]
