A Flair for Solar Cooking

My article, A Flair for Solar Cooking, And Sparks over the “Hippy” Method is featured in the August 2017 edition of IDAHO Magazine.

Sharon Cousins, was kind enough to share her experience with me during a solar cooking lesson at her residence in Viola, Idaho.  The story includes a recipe for her famous vanilla cake which, I can assure you, is delicious.  While waiting for the cake to bake, she regaled me with tales of solar cooking adventures from around the world.

The President Elect

To entertain myself, and occasionally my children, I create political cartoons.  My latest creation ran in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News on November 21, 2016.  The cartoon was also offered to the Spokesman Review for the Huckleberries Online Blog, a site which has previously published my work.  Unfortunately, they declined this one, stating, “I don’t like the word “racist” used on my blog to label anyone unless someone is a card-carrying, Richard butler-type racist — dfo.”  C’est la vie.
