About Barbara Gorelick
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo I was born and raised in northern California in the land of the glorious redwoods. My father worked in the lumber industry and my brother and I had a simple but wonderful childhood. Off to the big city to become a nurse and all these years later I still am. I was married for many years, have 2 grown boys and 2 young grandsons..Jordan and Elliot. Me proud? You betcha..it truly is the best thing about growing older. On my own now and enjoying all that I can cram into my life. I love music.. am a life long member of The Friends of Jose Carreras..poetry and music are my loves.I am a technaphobe..so bear with me while I figure this all out.

NEW CONTEST..Harvest Foods Epulaeryu..


Blog Posted:10/6/2010 3:52:00 PM
 See contest for details..but Im asking you to write about foods that we love in the fall...during and after harvest. I'd like you to try to stick to this form..which, by the way, is a stinker to spell. It is about food after all..Brian Strand is so good at this form..hope he sees this and will enter.
 Good luck  my gourmond friends... I'd love to see  a lot of our new poets try this...Barbara

    Barbara, i will have to look up this strange name Epulaeryu and check it out! If it's about food though, It sounds up my alley. I meant to tell you, so while I am here, I got the gift card for my prize. Thanks so much, you are a generous soul.LUv, Andrea
