Ever Thought About Joining the Navy? BB&W Vet, Karla, Tells You…

Have you dreamed of traveling the world? Wondered what cruising the Mediterranean Sea would be like? Yearning to cross The Tree of Life from your Bucket List? Well, I’ve done all these things and more. I’ve been traveling since infancy, first with my father, who was an officer in the United States Army and then myself as an officer in the United States Navy. I spent 43 of my 53 years on the road (well, not counting my college years) and it was a blast! Having said that, I know the military isn’t for everyone but for those who are looking for training in a viable skill and a chance to travel, this may be something that works for you.

“How one whole year has come and gone is absolutely beyond me. Time speeds by around us so quickly it seems like twelve months have zoomed by in half the time, but it seems as if this has been my reality for so much longer. I can hardly remember what it’s like to not have you in my life.”

Decadent Cooking: Baked Alaska…

This recipe for baked Alaska is with lemon custard and strawberry ice cream filling with topping of delicious meringue. All the recipe of filling except ice cream is given in the recipe which is very easy to prepare and you just need to wait to chill the batter. This is placed on top of a thin piece of buttery pound cake (recipe bottom of page) cut in circles. Of course, the ice cream and custard choice is up to you. Any Flavors will be magnificent! I especially like the cherry, with either a chocolate or the lemon custard. As always, Stay Hungry My Friends!

Lydia was a common slave with a common life until the day she entered a world no slave had gone before. Pale skin and deceit opened the door to wealth and a power she had only dreamed of.

How to Dress For Your Skin Tones– Red, Teal, and Plum…

I have been writing posts for the last three months on skin tones and what they are, but it just occurred to me that you may not understand what the heck I am talking about. So I have decided to put cool and warm tones side by side so that you could see the difference in the tones in hopes that once you go out to shop for makeup or clothes, you will be able to choose accordingly.

“Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of…

America is getting bigger. While population is growing so is the average size of the waistbands on Americans’ jeans. The expansion in the number of overweight Americans is partly explained by the lack of ability by poor people to purchase the kind of affordable and nutritious food which would keep them healthy and slimmer. The food gap, as Winne refers to it, is the gap between the ability of the middle- and upper-classes to access high quality, nutritious food at an affordable price and with relative ease, while on the other side of the chasm there are millions of poor people who lack access and an ability to pay for the same high-quality food as their middle-class neighbors.
