    The 2020 SAJ Calendar (rough draft) is HERE!

    I know some of you still wait around for these. You are amazingly patient people and I love you. I hope you love this calendar!

    Click here to download. (uploading to dropbox this year, crossing fingers it works)

    If you know the drill, you know what to do. If you don’t here is a recap: This is the first draft so there might be errors as I hand-typeset this whole thing myself and I am NOT a perfectionist. Please let me know what you find (Get your red pens out, my editor perfectionist friends!) and I will fix and re-upload a new revised draft as soon as this vacationing body can muster.

    Happy New Year Everybody! 2020 is going to roar!

    Brenda’s Magic Spice Mix

    I just thought I’d pop in and show you what I’m giving as gifts this Christmas: my magic spice mix! I’m addicted to this stuff. I shake one shake in my coffee everyday and when I run out, I miss it.

    It’s a really simple recipe too:

    • 1 part cardamon (my favorite spice)
    • 1 part turmeric (for all it’s wonderful anti-inflamitory goodness)
    • 1 part cinnamon (because it tastes good!)

    That’s it. I just shovel it all in a bowl and then mix it with a whisk and  pour into my nifty shaker bottles that I ordered off amazon.  So easy, right?

    Then I put on my personalized stickers that I designed and ordered from stickermule and tah-dah! Nifty gift!

    Of course I’m getting people other gifts too (I’m not a total cheapskate) but I like giving this because I think I’m micro-dosing everyone I love with some cancer-protection. Who knows. It might work!

    All for now!
