Hand Up or Hand Out? Should Organizations Work for Donations?


Should People Need to Work for their Donations?
Running in and out of Walmart this morning I was almost tackled by players of a little league football team. About a dozen had their little hands gripping their helmets and asking if I wanted to donate to their league. Good thing I've been working out to Shaun T's INSANITY Workout because I used my football feet to run away without dropping a penny.

Do I Feel Like Iron Woman after an Iron IV?


Drawing of My IV Tree - That Thing with Wings is Placed in My Hand to Let the Iron In
Do I feel like iron woman after an iron IV? No, not really. 

The downside of avoiding annual physical exams for oh, let's say a decade or so, is eventually facing the "what if" scenarios. What if that lump is cancerous? OMG, is that a leprosy rash? What if that cough is really the beginning of that fatal cough in Stephen King's The Stand?

Jackson Galaxy, "Cat Daddy" Will be in Sarasota, Fla., September 14, 2013
I'm two cats shy of being the single, crazy cat lady but that isn't stopping me from attending the lecture and book signing by Cat Daddy himself, Jackson Galaxy. The Cat Depot is arranging his Sept. 14, 2013, visit to the Hyatt Regency Sarasota.

Clean-Out-the-Fridge-Before-I-Hit-the-Road Pizza
I'm about to the hit the road next week and with the exception of a few appearances at home so my cat Sunny doesn't hate me, I'll be gone through mid-October. In order to prepare, I started cleaning out my refrigerator this weekend and decided to make a "clean-out-the-Fridge-Before-I-Hit-the-Road" pizza.

Recipe: Lemon Basil Cheese Pizza from Pies & Plates in Punta Gorda, Fla.

My Homemade Lemon Basil Cheese Pizza - Not Pretty but Refreshingly Delicious
A lemon pizza? You betcha! How about a lemon basil cheese pizza for a quirky recipe? Last week I participated in a hands-on cooking class at Pies & Plates in Punta Gorda, Fla. In addition to having a culinary academy, the place is a restaurant for breakfast and lunch as well as a terrific place to pick up nifty kitchen gadgets, such as a spritzer to place in lemons and limes.
