I have the brownie recipes that I need to sell, both for the regular crowd (not on a diet) and the Keto group (always on a diet) and both recipes are so..... good. The Keto brownies are very expensive to make and will be around until the Keto baked goods market prices themselves out of my budget. I will be selling them locally in the Las Vegas area and an 8x8" pan of regular or keto is $15. Delivery is available for $3 in the Las Vegas area (probably not Pahrump). Specify walnuts or no walnuts. 702-981-0445. 16 2" brownies and each Keto brownie is 3 net carbs.

I'm enjoying creating baked goods to sell, but it will be a limited menu available and possibly seasonal offerings.



Just 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip there is an exhilarating 4 mile downhill ride where you'll experience the beauty of the Nevada desert, the River Mountains and the Eldorado Valley like never before.

Tours include a return trip on one of the historic trains from the collection at the Nevada State Railroad Museum.

Family activity and access for everyone The Rail Explorers are easy to pedal, the terrain is mostly flat and the ride is relaxing and enjoyable. Everyone can enjoy this activity: couples young and old, groups of friends, and families of all ages and abilities. The pedal powered Explorers provide a smooth and comfortable adventure suitable for all.

Guided but Solitary At Rail Explorers safety is our first priority, so all tours have a trained guide at the front and in the last Explorer. Tours depart on a set schedule, but all riders are spread out, with up to 500ft between you and those in front and behind. The front and rear guides ensure that everyone arrives safely, but the distance between the bikes allows everyone to go at their own pace and enjoy the magic of riding the rails in solitude.

This sounds like a lot of fun!


Deep in the heart of GA, I learned how to collect chicken eggs and all about cotton fields. When we collected the chicken eggs, we had about 4 dozen eggs. Then I was told if we went back in a couple of hours, we could get approximately another 4 dozen. Who would think that 10 chickens could make that many eggs a couple of times a day?


Move to Arkansas and Get $10,000 and a Free Bike

There are plenty of places to live outside of the world’s biggest and sometimes most overpopulated cities. Luckily, it seems like several towns and smaller metropolises are vying for the attention of those willing to make a move. Last year, Tulsa, Oklahoma offered to pay remote workers to relocate there, while Topeka, Kansas launched a similar initiative this year.

The newly announced Life Works Here initiative is attracting new residents to Northwest Arkansas by offering them $10,000 to move there. They’re also throwing in a street or mountain bike with the deal, allowing new residents to easily explore the area’s 162 miles of paved trails and 322 miles of mountain biking trails. If biking is not your thing, you can opt for an annual membership to one of the local cultural institutions instead, like the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

For more information on the program and to submit your application, visit the Northwest Arkansas website.




I have been on hiatus while spending Thanksgiving with my family in GA. They live in a small college town about 1 1/2 hours from Savannah. Statesboro is known for it's University-Southern GA College (most of the students are from Atlanta), Cotton Fields & Peanuts. There's not a lot to do there, but it's a nice place to visit. Nearby, there are historical landmarks to visit and you're also not far from Claxton, GA-home of the famous fruitcakes that your parents used to make and receive. A little further down the road is Vidalia, home of the famous Vidalia Onions.

I'm very excited that Southwest Airlines will soon be flying into Savannah. It will make my visits so much easier when I go-from a standby point of view. My travel time is always 6-10 hours each way, with the added stress of going to Savannah on another airline-Delta. Delta has always been very accommodating in finding me a spot, but sometimes it takes 2 or 3 flights to get there (on standby).

Until next time.
