I haven’t posted in a while as my life has become incredibly hectic and not in a good way.

Our oldest female cat, Drusilla, needs surgery. She has had lumps along her mammory glands for a while and the vet has been watching them. Recently they have changed and we fear it is cancer.

Both my husband and myself are disabled and on a very small fixed income. Our savings have been depleted due to one of our younger girls needing this same surgery earlier in the year.

We are now asking for donations, no matter how small. If you cannot donate, we ask that you share Drusilla’s fundraising page.

Because we feel bad about needing this help, we will be setting up reward levels in the next few days so that, if you donate, you will not only help us but you will receive a small token of thanks.

Dru’s page is http://www.gofundme.com/40jt8c. Please donate/share this page.

Thank you.


I have been growing tomatoes, on and off, for years.  Most of the time I buy plants but this year I decided to start my own.  I read many different ways to start them but the one that intrigued me was starting them in eggshells.  The calcium, I read, was good for the newly sprouting plants.  Also, you can leave it in the shell when transplanting and it will biodegrade.

To me it was a no-lose situation.  A few weeks ago, I started my tomatoes and I cannot believe how quickly they have germinated.  Or how quickly they went from barely there to two inches tall.  I am assuming that is because of the eggshells but I do not know for sure.  I am thinking of planting some in newspaper starter pots to see if the eggshells make a difference or not.

I will be away from home for a few weeks but when I get back I will start my experiment.  I will definitely keep everyone informed as to what happens.

So make sure you check back to keep watching the great tomato experiment. 

I have chosen to change the name and look of my blog so please come follow me at http://ravynsramblings.wordpress.com/

Hope to see everyone over there.
