Flight Behavior - book

As a longtime fan of Barbara Kingsolver's writing, I was surprised to find I hadn't read this book.  It deals with a number of contemporary issues including climate change and the difficulty of the poor to change their lives.  I highly recommend it.

Goodreads review says:

Flight Behavior takes on one of the most contentious subjects of our time: climate change. 

With a deft and versatile empathy Kingsolver dissects the motives that drive denial and belief in a precarious world.

If anyone has read the book I would like to hear what you thought.

Tea Stands for Tuesday - 10/21/19

Yes, it has been ages since I've participated in Elizabeth's Tea party on Tuesday.  I've missed everyone.  My very old computer decided it had enough and gave up.  People who know about those things tell me my data can be restored.  I hope so.  Meanwhile I'm using the computer that belongs to DH and trying to remember passwords.  So its coffee for me this morning.

I have managed to figure out Halloween is only a few days away.  Enough time to mail a couple of cards.  This is the first one going out.

Lets go visit the rest of the tea party friends over at Elizabeth's blog.

elotes chidos - (food)

Have you tried this?  Oh so good.  Here's a picture and description from the East Bay Express news.

La Santa Torta - food truck at various locations in Oakland

The elotes chidos, which translates to "cool corn," consists of a cup of hot, freshly steamed corn kernels topped with Flamin' Hot Cheetos, a drizzle of mayonnaise, a sprinkling of cotija cheese, lime juice, Tajín, and Tapatío. The combination of corn and Hot Cheetos created a fun contrast of textures, while the mayo and cheese helped tie everything together.
