*With about 1/4 of a year left, hopefully activism has become an important part of your life.

To use Shopify’s platform, Jenner pays an estimated $480,000 annually, plus 0.15% of sales–pennies compared with the cost of doing that volume at physical retail.

Herbert Hoover’s Sweet Potatoes

6 sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons butter

Dash of nutmeg

Salt to taste

½ cup cream

1 cup ground walnuts

Marshmallows

Boil the sweet potatoes; peel and mash through a potato masher to remove all strings. Add the butter, nutmeg, salt, and cream enough to make a soft consistency. Blend in the ground walnuts. Put in a buttered baking dish and bake at 375°F for 10 minutes, or just long enough for potatoes to heat thoroughly. Remove from oven and dot the top with marshmallows; return to oven and brown as for a meringue.

*President Hoover loved sweet potatoes with toasted marshmallows more than anything else and he lived to be 90.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
