Happy Independence Day!

I just wanted to drop a quick note to wish you & your family a wonderful holiday!  We did not go to Lake Cochrane this year for the family reunion. Instead it’s just the two of us (plus four dogs and a cat…) and we’ll be grilling burgers, enjoying potato salad, corn on the cob and watching the fireworks!

Sending you one of my favorite pictures.  A farm located just outside Fresno “proper” painted their barn red, white & blue – this started right after 9/11 and each year they repaint to keep it beautiful.  It’s such a slice of Americana!

Happy 4th of July

Diabetics and Me

Minestrone Soup
