This weekend has been a special time to honor the Flag on June 14 for Flag Day. When you think of Flower Mound, think Patriotism. Driving home from Denton to get to Flower Mound, the exit is obvious because you will see one of the biggest flags made in honor of the American Flag as a reminder about what it means to  those that served (no picture was taken during driving). That big flag takes my breath away every time. Once you get to the Town of Flower Mound and if you're lucky enough to live there, it's not unusual to see many American Flags. America! America! God Shed His Light On Thee Also, it's not unusual to see both the American Flag and the Texas Flag below it against the blue Texas sky. Nor is it unusual to have the protection of the Flower Mound Police and Fire Department. Many...

I love fresh juice.  I had forgotten how wonderful it is. Just recently one of my homesteading listing clients made me some fresh juice and I became addicted to it once again.  Now I am making this morning goodness every day!  This morning I used apples, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, carrots, tumeric, ginger, celery, cucumber, grapes, and pinapple!  It doesn't take but a few minutes to make.  While the hubbs is in the shower I get it ready. I buy organics if my garden here on the homestead  isn't producing what I need, in this batch the cucumbers and celery were fresh picked.  I rinse everything, and cut into smaller pieces to help my juicer along with the processing.  There is something very satisfying processing it all!  And voila! It is so good!  Expecially with the ginger and ...
