Pack up all your cares and woes,
Here I go, singing low, bye bye blackbird
…… blackbird, bye bye.
Last post, they’re selling my posts. I never wanted or got a nickel from them, I will be removing them from WordPress.
I don’t know how to do this as I’m a writer and not a techie, that’s probably why they allow people to steal my words and sell them.
To my readers, I salute you and will be back on other than WordPress. Thank you for being with me and inspiring me these few years. The grandmother who died before I was a year old sang that song to me, to get me to go to sleep. It’s that time. Dee

Christmas time again
Yes, I love the guy. He’s formerly from Queer Eye, is a cook, and writes haiku. And he hosts Chopped!, not my favorite cooking show because of the baskets so I quickly (as hubby is about to pick me up for dinner) I wrote this about their ingredient baskets.
Parmesan and eel
Baccala, fig jam and eggs
I’m already Chopped
But I’m ready to slather it with mustard and place it on date-nut bread with some sliced pineapple and liverwurst. Don’t cook this! Dee
May be Big Brother but first
Let’s check the Kindle
Sandhill cranes, iron-rich
Feathers glinting in the sun
Nesting time again
Greater Sandhill Crane
Such comfort I do find
A cardigan of Arran
Wool Mom would have used
Sandhill cranes, they are
Jim called them Godzilla Birds
Wildfowl heaven is
here in Utah mountains, the
ducks and geese love it
We know the song, the spirit
Just gazing at them.
Ted Allen is a haiku guy. He’s on multiple shows on TV but I first saw him as the cooking guy on Queer Eye. Early in this blog we had a haiku competition and challenged Ted to judge it. Of course he was too busy but before he was The Man, he had time to converse with me via email.
I’m smart enough not to do another blog contest even though Michelle loved her trip to Hawaii and Pam her family rafting trip down the Colorado with their winnings. Oh when I lie I do it well.
They did receive kudos and check out the Haiku section of the blog and write one. Five syllables, seven, then five. Concise. We’ll amass them and send them to Ted.
Ted, stop being The Man for a moment and remember regular folks like one who has a boutique cooking blog with over 14,000 hits. Talk to Carson, it’s quality you want, not quantity.
