My husband and I retired from education in 2005.  We are enjoying a calm and blissfully boring retirement.   We live in a small town in Ohio and love gardening and being together.  We have a travel trailer that we now park at a nearby lake since my husband has health problems that make it difficult (if not impossible) for him to manage pulling it and I will not even try.  We have a truck camper which I drive and we use to visit local State Parks but venture further in the winters.  I love gardening, cooking and dabbling in colored pencil art.  We have two daughters and two grandsons (a granddaughter in the hopper).  Life is good.

    I found your site by searching for “fire and ice cucumber” recipe, but can’t find the recipe on your site. It involves cukes, onions and vinegar. I haven’t made it in years and would like to fix it again.

      Okay. This is one of those “little of this, little of that recipes” but I will give it a go.
      1 medium onion, thinly sliced
      1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced (you decide if you want to peel it first)
      3/4 c cider vinegar
      4 1/2 T sugar (I use brown sugar)
      1/2 t salt

      Mix it all together. Let it marinate as long as you can stand it. (12-24 hours)
