  • If you Google the history of the zentangle, you really won't find anything that specific on the subject because it is something that defies a tidy definition. When you look at an example, at first glance, it may just appear to be a bunch of doodles.

  • In commemoration of the recent changes in food laws in Florida, specifically regarding “cottage” cooking laws, I thought writing about my recent venture into jam-making was in order.
