August 18, 2018: Are you old enough to remember when Green Goddess salad dressing was the standard house dressing for restaurants? I fear a whole generation has gone by without ever enjoying such deliciousness on crispy salad greens, having been raised on Ranch this or Ranch that. I can't remember the last time I was in a restaurant that even offered the choice of Green Goddess. I find most dressings too sweet or tart, and I never really acquired the taste for the various Ranch dressings. Green Goddess is both a pleasantly creamy and savory dressing that doesn't overpower the fresh flavors of the vegetables.

August 15, 2018: For years I've been using the Kindle apps on my various devices, but finally decided I should have a real Kindle. Love it! Very convenient for reading Kindle books and browsing the Internet, too.... I was one of the first to experiment with publishing eBooks while the big publishers were turning up their noses. Had the Rocket Reader device that my long-ago former publisher helped pioneer -- along with demand printing. Of course the little guys ride the rough seas to get readers onboard, and then in come the big boys with their own devices, and the rest is history!

August 14, 2018: Twas our 41st anniversary Sunday, and we traveled to Amarillo for a coworker's wedding on Saturday and made a weekend of it. Enjoyed lunch at Plainview's Chili's Restaurant on the way, which is one of the best in the chain -- fresh and tasty! We dined at the Longhorn Restaurant on the west loop in Amarillo. That place was bustling! Service was excellent and food divine! Highly recommend.

August 10, 2018: This is my ninth suspense mystery, and, about a young woman who almost achieves it all until a fateful weekend with family sets her on a path that threatens to destroy everything she has worked for. If you suffer from chronic illness, this is a horror story you will relate to. In fact, it may be too real for you. Let me know what you think.
