Living & Working in Great Places
Summer time is here and its time for some killer fresh fruit desserts to be made and devoured!
I've been playing with Peach and Strawberry Desserts this month also using a reduction of Peach liqueur to use as base for sauces and dressings.
Two of My latest and greatest desserts (LOL)!
My first dessert is served in a crispy tortilla bowl that's dusted with a touch of cinnamon and sugar, filled with creamy Vanilla Bean Mousse, then topped with fresh strawberries and…Continue

My doctor gave me a full clearance and I can't wait to work again. You seasonal people know how it is, the lure of working in beautiful places with people of like minds.
I hope to be back in Yellowstone soon, just need the Paper. Like Ron, I ask everyone to cross your fingers for me, hoping to be back in the Park soon, the season is slipping away, seems like.
Ok, friends, that's my post, hope to have great news this week.
It's fun to scheme and dream. The map below shows the route my boyfriend and I will take for a road this August including a visit to the Cool Works Web Shack, a drive through Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks, a Cool Works Meetup at Mesa Verde National Park with Aggie, Lake Powell (Wahweap) / Antelope Canyon, Zion, Mono Lake, Yosemite National Park, and finishing in the Bay Area for a wedding before the long drive north back to Bellingham. I hope to see some Cool Workers along the…Continue
Now the first time I got a job @ GCSR(Grand Canyon South Rim...for all you newbies) I had been living in a strangers house with no real job at all, in Tampa,FL. I had been bouncing around from place to place & state to state for awhile. Which was fine with me back then. I usually only stayed somewhere for 2-3 months at a time. Something always came up and I was forced to move on. But moving on so much had it's advantages...you didn't collect alot of stuff and you never got to know…Continue
This picture was taken the 2nd time it came wandering through the property at Gwin's Lodge, since I have been here. It was just after lunch time. The bear came back a 3rd time in the same week, after dinner but unfortunately I did not have the camera with me. Actually a 'fish & game' officer was here then and shot rubber…Continue
Has anyone ever worked or been to a HAUNTED PLACE?
Each year the Mesa Verde Institute offers special hikes to areas inside Mesa Verde National Park that are not generally available to the public. Last year I was able to visit a cliff dwelling called Square Tower House and it was a real highlight of my 2011 summer. This year I got another treat by going to a place called "Mug House". The interesting name was coined when one of the early explorers found three puebloan mugs, connected by twine, inside the cliff dwelling. He named the…Continue

Tonight after dinner I went down the road around the corner where the river comes right up to the road. Sat down on the guard-rail for awhile…Continue
I am posting this as a reference for future job seekers. The good and bad will be discussed here and you may make your own decisions from them.
This gift shop chain is nothing short of a sweat shop. In less than a month of being employed here ( over 5 of us are return employees) that is the name used to describe work. Any promises made to you before arriving will be thrown out the window and you will be treated as nothing more than a disposable inanimate object.
Here is some…Continue
