Kenzie’s Crepes

Kenzie asked for crepes so we had to make them this morning. She is becoming adept with the cast iron waffle maker and at making lovely scrambled eggs. She likes adding shredded cheddar to them. too. Tonight the chicken in the crockpot didn’t get done in time so we made broiled steaks with mashed potatoes, stuffing and mixed vegetables. She was surprised how easy stuffing is to make. It was fun to show her how easy broiling is, too.

Soroptimist Ladies’ 90+ Tea 2018



Winner was lady 106!!! Marilyn just a junior at 92, didn’t make top 10. Had a fun time taking granddaughter Mackenzie with us.

Dominic (cowboy poet & mayor of Hamilton) directed car parking and as I returned to Saphire Home I shook his hand and congratulated him on the mayorship. Alene Tunny, Soroptimist president, MC’d and Dominic told a joke and read a poem he wrote.

He read the name tags on the three ladies at the first table and the joke was the three of them in a bar ordering shots of whiskey and a “tiny bit of water”. The third round the bar tender asked them why the “tiny bit of water” and they replied that, at their ages, they can hold their liquor but not their water.

We three got a round of applause for our fascinator hats and outfits. Today, Alene called and wanted a quote from Marilyn to send in with our photo for an article in the newspaper. What fun!

website security and reliability

In February I changed hosting services. That took a lot more learning than I expected. It also had a large number of failures before my perseverance finally resolved the myriad details that had to be addressed exactly so.

Even before I finally achieved the reliability in presentation and fluid ability to post new articles to my sites, I began getting messages suggesting I really, really ought to convert to the more secure access offered by “HTTPS”, as opposed to unsecured plain HTTP.

Enter, once again, more details that I did not know and had to learn about.

Today I think my websites are reliably, consistently up on HTTPS with improved security for thee and me… obviously that includes Missy’s website.

To take advantage of that, you merely need to add the “S” to my (Missy’s) website address, changing nothing else, then save your updated bookmark to my (her) page.

Maybe now I can spend more quality time with my shop tools.

I far prefer banging on things with hammers rather than keyboards.
