Letter to my readers

To those who follow my writing or have stumbled upon my posts:

“Christmas is coming and the geese are getting fat, please put a penny in the old man’s hat. If you don’t have a penny, then a haf-penny will do and if you don’t have a haf-penny, then God bless you.”

This was something I learned as a child and each year that comes to this time, I remember it. What sticks with me is the idea that being poor is sometimes not as bad as people believe it is and also to be grateful for the little things you have. I have spent hours of each month since I started this blog working out each of my theories and developing skills to communicate them in a forum to be read, appreciated and enjoyed. I am not only grateful for my abilities to rapidly develop these theories and clarify them in simple, explainable terms but also for the people whom take the time to read them. This project would be worth nothing without the people whom read what is written.

With the Christmas holiday coming quickly, we are all busy with preparations but this does not mean that one should not take a moment to express gratitude. So THANK YOU, to all of you whom subscribe and read my writing.

I enclose a gift of cookies… well, one of my favorite recipes. These are good with a cup of spiced tea at the end of a long day, please enjoy if you choose to make some.

Easiest Almond Cookies

Makes: 12 cookies


1 cup almond flour (Honeyville)

1 egg

1 tbsp coconut oil (or butter)

stevia to taste

1/4 tsp almond extract (alcohol free)


  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. To prevent lumping try mixing the dry flour and oil before added it to the egg. If it’s too dry add a tiny bit of water.
  2. Roll batter into small balls and set out on parchment paper. Use a little less than a tbsp of your batter for each cookie to make 12 cookies.
  3. With your palm lightly press down on each cookie. Use a fork to make a design. Or, just roll out dough and use a cute cookie cutter to make your cookies.
  4. Bake at 325° F for 10-12 minutes or until firm.
