As you know I often speak of the library where I work or that I am librarian by day and designer by night.
The library was celebrating its 135th year, they were wanting suggestion to draw people in to use the library and do something for the community. I suggested an Art Show never realizing that I would be put in charge of it.
Seven years later – we have had our first oops to deal with. That oops was someone took photos from another artist site and enter them into the art show as their own.
This has been very long week for me. I even won an award in the 3-D section But have not really enjoyed having won since I have had to take care of the rest of the show and disqualify someone from the show.
My point in writing this is, when you post your photos, are you putting a watermark or signature on your photos? Someone could come along and either print screen your photo or take pictures of your dearly beloved photo and use it as their own?
How do you handle the photos you enter or place and upload to the internet?
I hope you will leave your remarks and post this to this wordpress….
Did you know that you can do an image search in Google ?
That is something I learned this weekend!
I am looking at the world in a different light these days.
I hope this will help someone along the way.
How did this all start, oh, someone at church told me their sister went to the doctor. The doctor wanted her to loose weight. He told her about the “Eat to Live” by Joel Furham. She in turn on mission told me she was going to start this, after she got home from her mission.
Being the Librarian I am, decided to get one of these books thru Interlibrary Loan. Then I decided to get my own copy. So his theory is eating salads with beans of your choice every day along with vegetables, seeds or nuts. Plus stop eating: dairy, sweets, salt and oil. But one is allowed to eat Greens, Beans Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and seeds. (G-BOMBS)
Since then I have been allergic to milk since I was kid, but my mom didn’ t want to feed me goat’s milk, so I have suffered most of my life with milk products. Since I stopped I feel so much better…
Well this led me to better meal planning. My latest is I created a BLT for vegan or vegetarian. So my B is a bean hummus of your choice, spread it on facing sides of your bread.
Next put some romaine lettuce or whatever your choice is
Then add tomatoes, I had small ones so I put on three slices
Then for extra measure, I love cucumbers in sandwiches so they are place on the other side
Then put it together and you have a wonderful tasting sandwich. Sometimes I sprinkle Mrs. Dash on my tomatoes, but today I did not. I am wanting to grow some alfalfa sprouts. This makes for a really great sandwich. Hope you will try it and let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping in!

I tried a New no Knead pizza dough, it turned out pretty good even the first time around. My only complaint is I watched a video on line about it but the recipe did not match the video. I am so glad I have photogenic mind that I was able to put it together.
Put 1 1/2 cups of warm water in bowl (it did not say how warm) so I guessed at that and it still turned out this time for me)
Put 2 yeast packets in and let sit for 5 minutes. Then grease two bowls while you are waiting.
After 5 minutes whisk in 2 Tbsp sugar, 2 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 cup olive oil. Then stir in 4 cups all purpose flour. After it has been mixed, place dough in the other bowl that you oiled.. Next spread or mist some olive oil over the top of the dough, so when you place the saran wrap over it, it won’t stick to it. I turned my oven to warm as my kitchen tends to be on the cooler side. I placed my bowl in the middle between the gas burners on top and wrapped a terry towel around the base of bowl hoping this would keep it warm enough to rise.
I went out shopping and when I came back it had double in size. I was so excited to see that it worked. Amazing. The saran wrap did not stick to the dough due to the oil on top.
Then i floured my counter a little bit and put my dough and formed it into pizza shape. Before placing it on pan I oiled this again with olive oil.
This is how I dressed my pizza. Tomato base items don’t agree with me. So I used a a green Pesto Sauce from Aldi that I gotten from their Italian Section. I took a knife and stirred the pesto before spooning it on my pizza dough. I used the back of the spoon to spread the sauce around the crust. Next I shaved some Parmesan cheese with a carrot peeler.
Then I laid down some Hormel pepperonis and dehydrated mushrooms that I purchased from Honeyville. I popped it into a 500 degree preheated oven for 7.5 minutes give or take. Then pulled it out and placed some mozzarella shredded cheese and put back in the oven for another 7.5 minutes. It didn’t seem quite done, so I put the timer on for another 5 minutes. It came out very very nice. I was shocked and delighted all at the same time.
The true test is will there be anything left on their plates or will it get eaten up? Mine was eaten up and so was my hubbies! Finally success for me. I used an insulated pan that you usually cook cookies on so they don’t burn therefore it took longer to cook. so next time I probably will not need to leave it in for extra five minutes.
Hope this works for you. I will definitely make this again. You can freeze this up to 4 months. I divided my dough so it will make two individual pizza. Shaped it into round disk and placed in Ziploc Freezer Bag, Marked the item and date and placed it into the freezer.
Happy Day, have fun making this
My daughter turned me on to this app, this past weekend. All you have to do is download all your loyalty cards and library card. One can just take picture of your bar codes and attached to each loyalty card. Then save and you are Ready To Go.
How does it work? The next time you go to CVS or IKEA, just go to the app on your phone it will list all them, just click on the one you want (they are in alphabetical order) and then click on the lower right hand corner and your bar code will appear at the top of your phone. Then just stick it under the bar scanner and bingo you are done. Easy as pie. Saves your key ring from being over loaded and your ignition too.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

I had forgotten why I had these fun little erasers,. Then I was at work and pulled them out to give them away when I suddenly realized they would make adorable earrings. They are quite reasonable. There is always someone looking for cute idea but not to expensive at a Craft Fair. So I am taking these guys on Saturday, November 21 to the craft fair I am planning to be vendor in that day.
