About me

Currently unemployed (possibly retired depending upon what the future brings), I am not to be confused with the guy who dispenses advice in Breakfast Smoothies. He is much more intelligent.

Too young for Medicare too old for anyone else to care; too rich for Medicaid, too poor to travel; I attempt gardening, hiking, biking, birding, canoeing, kayaking, designing websites, and getting out of bed in the morning.

I don’t own a TV and have not watched regularly since 2006. (I also don’t own a dishwasher or a microwave.) And, I have not read a newspaper since about 2004.

I’ve lived in (from North to South) New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida; moved a lot.

My other website is a much more sophisticated and intellectual gardening site: www.emilycompost.com. (My original website is about compost. Now this. Could there be a pattern emerging?)

So far this is morphing into: Breakfast Smoothies (a fictionalized rant about the world) and a few other essays.

I’ve also added a recipe in poem format: Pumpkin Pie Recipe.

I try to add an essay every weekend.  We’ll see how it goes. (Note: Nov 2016 – not going well)

Oh, and at least one other site had the good taste to publish one of my poems (here). Boomer Cafe focuses on baby boomers with active, youthful lifestyles.

Oh, another thing. I have two poetry sites: Composed Gardener (for gardeners, duh) and Wretched Rhymes of young Whippersnappers (about young kids). Visit anytime.
