10/10/10 – new format to our nablopomo

Shaking things up with the Poblanos! C’mon, join in! You can do this! ❤


November is just around the corner, and while many of our writer friends will be participating in NaNoWriMo (congrats, y’all, and good luck!) — some of us will be doing what we do.

Running our yearly blog-marathon for National Blog Posting Month.

We call itNanoPoblano … And Team Tiny Peppers… or Cheer Peppers. Whatever you call us, the important things are that we try together, and we would love if you joined us!

Normally National Blog Posting Month means we write a post a day, for the whole month– but this year, we’re shaking things up! We’re trying to make this a comprehensive blog challenge, complete with a ready-made community.

We’re challenging our team to 10 days of posts, 10 days of reading/commenting, and 10 days of sharing posts through any other platform.

Obviously, you’re still welcome to tackle this challenge however you’d like. Team Tiny Peppers is known for…

Stealing Their Humanity With Our Kindness

We were cruising through the grocery store when I heard Ella say to herself, “Ugh. I hate that.” I looked around and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary, so I asked, ” What do you hate?” …

Vintage WWII Posters at Cry and Howl

This is a re-blog.  My friend Steve, over at CryandHowl is selling his WWII posters, and I thought some of you might be interested.  Last I checked, he had his blog on private, so since I wasn’t sure if an official re-blog link would work, I decided to c/p his whole post, so you could see what he’s got.  These are original WWII posters, not reproductions.

Update: He just told me he’d taken his blog off private, so click away!  He’s got bigger images on his blog, and please feel free to re-blog this also!  Thank you so much!

Love, Vanessa

National Poetry Month – Poets I Know

Poets, assemble! 🙂

DiAnne's Scribbles


As many of you know in honor of National Poetry Month (April) I have been posting a daily spotlight on a particular poet. I would very much like to end the month on April 30th by posting a “National Poetry Month Spotlight – Poets I Know”.

In order to do this of course I need willing participants which I am  hereby begging for.  (smiley face). I know many wonderful poets out there so I am hoping you will send me one or as many as you want of your favorite poems to spotlight on this last day of poetry month. 

You can send them to me via Messenger on Facebook if you like or you can send them direct to my e-mail address which is  Please have them to me by the end of the day on the 28th. 

Oh, and please, please pass the word as this post…

WHO’s New Q & A on Glyphosate Confirms Toxicity of Round Up

Word needs to be spread!


Will the EU agencies listen?

The World Health Organization (WHO) has just published a clear question and answer form on the toxicity of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide concoction, Round Up. It leaves no question that the herbicide is truly genotoxic, causing damage to life everywhere.

The report has likely come out due to controversy over the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)’s determination that glyphosate is ‘safe.’ The herbicide is meant to be voted on to reinstate marketability later this month.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a research arm of the WHO, has stated clearly that both formulations containing glyphosate and pure glyphosate pose a grave risk. It is this clear explanation that leaves the EFSA little wiggle-room when trying to downplay glyphosate’s toxicity dependent upon the formulation.

The EFSA has tried to…

Bad Day…Again

I realized that my husband’s description of a single day pretty much sums up how 2016 has been going for us so far.  The year’s not gotten off to a great start for us. I hope for that to change! Soon!!

How about you?  Is the new year going well for you?



I went out at 6:10 this morning in sub-zero temperatures to start my “new” used car, which has been faithfully firing up for two years come what may.

I got a lot of backtalk from it today though, as it coughed and heaved before it finally turned over. I fired up the heater and the defroster, then went back inside to finish getting ready for work. When I finally had my winter coat, gloves, computer, keys, and coffee, most importantly coffee, I found the car wasn’t running.
