About me



 People ask me about the name of my blog and the Radish part.  I used radishes because they are visual attractive, round and red. And when old, they are old a little caustic and biting.   Sometimes that is me

 I live in Northeastern Florida, and I moved here from Puget Sound of Washington.   My subject matter is always in flux.  I go through different crazes and my blog goes with me.  I enjoy food, photography, I love my family, and I am creative always.  I write about life.   Lately I have included some politics and religion.

Considering how bad the Republican Convention I expected, I am enjoying some of the speakers.  Harry Truman's convention was the first convention that I remember, and my mother took me down to the train station to see him at his whistle stop speech in Palo Alto, California.  First the conventions were on the radio and my parents paid attention.  Then there was the hubbub of television.  The settings were pretty plain in the beginning, and I think today's stage set up is pretty satisfactory.  

Always at the convention there was the rah rah and I have to say  in some years when I was younger, I thought them cheesy. Today rah rah almost seems refreshing.   It has been refreshing to hear people speak up. A black man from Colorado who is running for Senate, gave a great speech.  Paul Ryan, who I am occasionally wondering where he is coming from, sounded positively Presidential. Rudy Gulianni had the crowd going on the first night.  The Press dumped on Melenia Trump, but honestly if you are at a convention and you are speaking on your husband's behalf, how origional can you be? I did not see Donald, Jr.'s speech, but I did see the actress/avocado farmer woman.  She was very good.  Ben Carson warmed my heart.  

Currently, I think that I am in the minority of people with older, and Christian values. I think I am alone.  Watching some of the wonderful speakers made me feel part of a larger, greater group.  I am taking my pleasures where I can.  

This IS our time.  This is our time to stand up for freedom and liberty, and be against corruption.  It is our time to pay attention to our neighbors. Let's  put our texts down and pay attention to the person next to you.

 And God Bless America.

I am recording the convention. I stayed up to watch Melania. Notably, she was not wearing any jewelry. When you are that beautiful, you don't need to! Now I will have to go back and watch a few of the speeches. XO
