Carl's Sour Dough Starter

Hi Maggie,
Here is a great source for a Sour Dough Starter if you want to start over again. I stumbled across this several years ago. It is really good, free for a SASE, and has a great story of sharing. Here is the website.
http://carlsfriends.net/
Carl T. Griffith, who gave a sourdough starter to anyone who asked, or who sent him a self-addressed stamped envelope, died early in the year 2000 at the age of 80. He is known for his generosity and the high quality and vitality of his sourdough starts, which came from a sourdough culture carefully nurtured and preserved in his family for over 150 years. His friends have kept sharing his starter as a way to honor him.

Also ironic that you mentioned Lily of the Valley. We just transplanted some yesterday. It is a beautiful plant. Just be careful, particularly around Lily. All parts of the plant are cardio-toxic if ingested by humans or animals.

Thank you.

I threw out the loaf of bread.

I ate one piece of it, tasted pretty good, but....ummm, it has not set well with me.

Who needs that.

I'm going to flush the starter down the toilet in the morning.

It was kind of fun to see what it would do, but there's only one of me here most of the time and starter needs to be used and fed.

Using starter can be labor intensive, but I have had fun playing around with it over the years....biscuits, coffee cake, English muffins, etc.

Such an ancient way of making baked goods.

The Lily of the Valley will be on the north side of my house, an area Lily is never in...back is fenced, her territory, unless we are walking, when she is leashed.

I may have known it was toxic, but I had forgotten, so good to be reminded.

Becoming ones own primary caretaker is a sad fact of widowhood.

Joined at the hip as we were, we sorted out and talked thru almost everything that came our way. We liked that about us, and treasured it.

I handle many things differently now....part of moving thru, going on, evolving as I take care of myself without my fellow traveler in all things.

I tolerate less, not having him here, is the truth....stepping back more quickly from things and people I can't change....who add nothing positive to my life and/or are steeped in negativity, draining my emotional resources.

We all have them.

I am now the primary caretaker of me, my resources for self care are more finite, and I do things differently.

It wasn't a plan, but I see that it has happened.

You're sweet, Gail.

Some days I feel more acutely the loss of the other half of my soul...when I would like to talk with him about something, get his feedback and perspective.

I so very much miss that.

I still talk with him, ask for his input on things, and when a path appears for me I like to believe he has led me to it.

However, it is not the same, and the last couple of days I have been especially aware. There are others to talk with....but....

I'll shake it off...I always do.


Labs this morning, a bit of choring, found a beautiful, trailing pansy hanging basket on special at Ace Hardware for $9.99....I love a bargain.

It will look very nice, hanging in the front....near the trellis and over my rock and shell bed,


Maggie

Unable to find my favorite, small box, House Wine Riesling, without paying outrageous shipping costs...I am branching out a bit.

I don't like red wine, but this Sofia Coppola rose' is pretty tasty.

I love her little sparkling cans, but their price is prohibitive for frequent consumption.

This is light, fruity, and very pink in my glass. I like.

I'm getting pretty good at getting corks out , and pouring the rest into my PlatyPreserve keeps it fresh til completely consumed. I am a glass-at-a-time girl.

Does this mean my mom's old cork puller is working well for you? Hope so.

I subscribe to this philosophy.

Decisions made late in the day, when one's mind is weary from struggling with some life something, are always better left to the daylight.

Clarity finds a way of rising to the surface during the night, is my experience, with better decisions made come morning.

When I was growing up, my Mom had three possible responses to my requests (which she explained beforehand once I was old enough to understand). Yes meant yes. No meant NO! (No use begging, it made things worse.) The third was, "I need time to think about my decision."

#3 was often phrased, 'I need to sleep on it."

In the years since, I've often found that she was wise to delay decisions overnight, and I try to do the same as often as I can. Maybe several nights for the really big decisions.

Yes.

I also remember "Things will look better in the morning."

Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't.

I like the Sofia bottle, clean elegant line.

My favorite part of going to a wine or liquor store is the bottle and label designs.

It is a really pretty bottle ....I thought about saving it, but I have too many bottles already, and if I'm going to be drinking wine out of bottles rather than small boxes, I must draw a line.

I found this idea online, that I really like for otherwise hideous downspouts.

I saw bags of large, smooth stones out at Home Depot the other day, and have an area I think I am going to do this in.

Pretty, hmmm? I like the natural look of the stone.

And, I already did this one this morning, tho it's not a very good picture with the sun on it......Edisto shells, of course, the last of those not suitable for candles nor for my paving stones.

Found this idea online, as well, and this is off my front porch, near the door.

I may have to glue some of the smaller ones down....we'll see.

Spring brings my nesting instinct out in full force.

I planned to attend my needlework group today, to find it is cancelled today as the Senior Program is moving to its own, brand new facility, the "Activity and Recreation Center", owned and operated by the Township.

I haven't been since the first week in January, so this all escaped me, tho I did know a new facility was in the works.

In order for any person to attend any group or activity at the new facility, you must be a Member, paying a $25 annual fee for a single person and providing the following information:

Name, address, home and cell telephone number, date of birth, email address, gender, marital status, ethnicity, mobility/health/allergy information, two emergency contacts and preferred hospital.

By signing that all of this information is correct, one also agrees and consents that this information may be used for statistical and in-house marketing purposes.

You then have a photo taken and are given an Identification number.

One must then provide a witnessed signature that you have received and read rules and regulations for Participants and agree to notify of any changes and additions to your Participant Registration Form.

Lastly, one must sign a witnessed, 3/4 page long Liability Release and Indemnity.

No more just dropping in when one is in town, signing the sheet as participant for that day, enjoying the casual company of other, like minded women also doing needlework of some sort.

I don't know that I want to do this.

It's one of those weeks....things are out of alignment in my universe, tilted in some manner.

I'll spare you the details.

Looks like the lawyers and insurance company have become involved in something that should be much simpler.

Personally, without the ability to opt-out of the marketing stuff, I would hesitate to sign it also. The fee is also causing heartburn😄

As a security guy, I have deeper issues with some of the data requested. Birthdate is one that is very concerning. That's why mine on a form like that is NOT my real birthdate, just saying...😄

And before someone else asks, "would I lie to protect my privacy?" The answer is "You betcha--in a heartbeat--all the time". I put it in the category of "They don't need to know"

Oh Maggie, hard decision or it would be for me.

I walked out of a Dr appt because they insisted on taking my picture on their laptop.

I know its the new direction of things but that doesn't make it right.

They will likely report some statistical information to some agencies or government bureaus about what the population is they are serving in order for some funding.

I would think as a township center that they should be safeguarding your information not be allowed to share it. Our city library will not even disclose personal information to family members due to privacy restrictions.

Every time (or most)I've had privacy or ID theft issue it's been organizations being hacked or breached not me being careless.

I'm done

The fee is pretty nominal, but this new facility is supported by our tax dollars, plus federal monies are also in place, I believe.

It's a Senior Center, meals are provided at low cost and are federally subsidized, but you sign up to participate in that, which I have not...there may be other federal monies in there, I don't know.

There are also fees for some classes, tho the needlework group is free....everyone brings their own materials, works on their own projects, etc.

They're requiring all identifying information but for SSN. They need all of this information....why?

Providing it all, consenting to its use, signing the release, etc., are now conditions of participation in anything at the new facility.

It's the sum total of it all, and I am not in the mood for it.
