I really love bacon and a good BLT is a thing of joy, but I had no idea!
How you, yes YOU, can bypass the bloated US textile and retail industries and buy unique, bespoke clothing directly from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. And why that's a good thing.
Tuesday is the 50th anniversay of the announcement of Salk's polio vaccine. I can remember getting the series of shots when I was 6, which would have been 1958. Also the oral vaccine several years later. Doctors have since speculated that I had a very very mild case of polio the summer I was 4. I was very ill -- running a high fever and vomiting -- and just as they were ready to put me in the hospital I improved and got well. My husband's mother had a mild case around the same time. She has a slightly paralyzed leg -- I have odder results. Although I'm right handed with a vengeneance the right side of my body is smaller and, in general, weaker than the left. (The exceptions are my left knee and ankle -- both damaged by accidents.) It was a very very scary time.
And I think that's enough for someone who hasn't blogged much for a long time.
