Today is the last day of the month and as we look back we realize how crummy most of it was. We lost some valued cultural icons who influenced us all. In America the presidential election started picking up steam and we are dealing with the ego maniac known as Donald Trump. The weather in many parts of the country was cold, damp and snowy. Many people are unfortunately losing their jobs due to layoffs and other situations. Terror is still a part of our lives. For many they are just trying to get by.

All of this seems like bad news and to be honest it is. I am thankful that time does march on and we all have hope for a better tomorrow. Let’s make it happen. Tomorrow is just another day and it is also another month. I hope it will be better for everyone, no matter where we are or what we are doing.

Grace and peace to you all. God bless each of you. Hang in there, we got this.


I am loving this snack my wife made. It’s easy and delicious, also addictive. Good stuff.

The Soup Diva

My variation on an old recipe (Hot Buttered Cheerios).  This adds a little more flavor and some protein.

  • 6 tbsp butter, margarine, or oil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 can cocktail peanuts
  • 8 cups Cheerios

Melt butter or margarine in large bowl or roasting pan in 300 degree oven (omit this step if using oil). Add Worcestershire and seasonings and stir until blended. Pour in peanuts and stir until coated very well. Add cereal and stir until all pieces are coated evenly. Bake 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. This mix will not need spreading and cooling like party mix, since the Cheerios do a good job of soaking up the liquid and drying quickly.

Two Amazing Men Who Influenced and Loved Me

There are two men who influenced me to be the geek I am and they are Gary Burgess, my dad and Leon Webb my granddad. Both my dad and granddad influenced me to pursue the life and interests that I have embraced. Without them I wouldn’t be a computer enthusiast, photographer, music fan, sci-fi fan or a blogger among many other things. More importantly they were and example of serving others and loving God. They are the two most important men in my life. I am truly grateful. I love them very much.
