Weekly Photo Challenge – Sweet

This weeks Photo Challenge, Sweet, asks to “show us something (or someone) sweet.” For me, that’s a no brainer…its Thai mango and sticky rice, the perfect treat. First, you have the mango…sweet and cold. Next, is the warm, salty sticky rice. Finally, is the thick coconut cream drizzled over the top.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Tour Guide

This weeks Photo Challenge, Tour Guide, asks us “What do you love about where you live?” I love living near Moorpark College…and here’s why, it is the only community college in the U.S. (maybe even the world) that offers an Exotic Animal Training & Management program. You read that right! Walk anywhere on the 150 acre complex and you can hear the lion roaring, or the spotted hyena laughing, and many other animal sounds.

Nani, and my first cherita

I recently found out about Cherita‘s from Mary, at Cactus Haiku, last month. Since I like writing the occasional haiku, I thought I’d try writing a cherita. I had forgotten about trying to write one, when Mary asked me yesterday if I had written one yet. I told her when my image was finished I was going to give it a try. Well, here is my first attempt.
