Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most. But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.
You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others. The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!
One thing that we rarely ever have in the southern part of the United States is low humidity. The last two days have been very low humidity and 80° temperatures. It makes for incredibly comfortable afternoons! Bentley certainly loves it!
This is at the condo in Naples when Evelina and I got engaged in 2012. We began our trip at Disney, but Hurricane Debbie rained us out. We decided to move farther west and pass Debbie as she moved east. It worked the first day, but this video shows you how day 2 turned out!
I saw a video on Facebook today about a guy in California who lost his dog to the city because it got loose and killed the neighbors cat in the cat’s yard. The dog then died in their custody from a heat stroke after being left for hours in a hot truck. The guy is upset as any dog owner would be. You can read about it here: justice for Cuda.
I am torn over the pit bull issue because I know pit owners who have great dogs. But I have also come face-to-face with aggressive pits and it is terrifying.
We have a neighbor who owns a pit who lunges even when on the leash. Now most people will argue that it’s the owner who makes the dog. And I agree. But the problem I have is trusting a dog who has the power in one bite to snap my arm or rip an animal to shreds.
I have had to stand my ground with an aggressive pit and I almost peed my pants I was so scared.
I’m not much for sweets but every 3 years or so I get a craving for Rhubarb cobbler. My Grandmother and my mom made the best rhubarb pies. This was my grandpa’s favorite. My grandma made the most beautiful crusts. I learned that from her but to be honest I didn’t want to fuss with all of that. My hands wouldn’t have allowed it any way. I find holding on to things like rolling pins for any length of time difficult.
Cobblers are a great alternative and this one is as simple as it gets.
For the filling:
2 16oz. bags of frozen rhubarb
1 Cup of Sugar ( more if you like it sweeter. I prefer it on the tart side. )
Fun was had last night at the wedding and afterward Evelina and I stopped by the German restaurant for a little night cap before heading home. As a result, I feel like my head was run over by a Greyhound bus. Sluggish and lethargic are the words of the day.
