Growing Bolder

Growing Bolder….The TV program on RLTV, if you are wondering which channel number this is on… it`s 175….if you are wanting to check it out! Its tag line is that…. it`s not about the age…but its about the attitude. This program truly inspires, I have watched it for quite some time now, and still feel I need to do more…. but others can benefit from it, so if you haven’t flipped to this channel yet, it`s time to.

The stories they share, are of people of all ages achieving and making a difference in their lives  and the lives of others around them. They interview  Centenarian`s …[who has lived passed 100]…in their program “Centenarian Project”.

Victory Garden is another good one, if you are like me, who is yard or garden challenged…Then this is a place for you.  This program can open your eyes to a thing or two about growing your own food, or just ornamental plants if you please.

Bob villa is  for DIYers, … ….building homes from shipping containers, oops as bob villa would call it ISBU [ Inter-Model Steel Building Units]….or doing small fixes….tips and tricks.

The program …Taste of Histroy, makes me feel, that if I need to cook and live without gas and electricity, I can !!!…especially if you are homesteading…or thinking of homesteading. All one needs is a few iron skillets, pots and pans, chopping board, knife, and any old antique kitchen equipment you can find.

In  fact one would think RLTV is more for people who are retiring or going to retire or have already retired, but believe me, this channel has the wisdom of ages, so if your house lacks a grandpa and/or a grandma to pass on the good old lessons of life, this channel does it for you.



Blue Berry and Banana Cake

I like this cake, because it`s simple to make, the fruits in it are good for you, so is the whole wheat flour, and I feel that whole milk has all the goodness of milk as nature intended it to be,  with all the milk solids and fat.  Fat helps to absorb the Vitamin A and Vitamin D. But the choice is yours, you can use a 2% or 1%, milk instead.


1/2 cup oil

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup whole milk

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tea spoon Baking Powder

1/2 tea spoon  salt

1/2 tea spoon  vanilla essence

1 cups of mashed banana

1 cup blue berries[can use frozen]

1 teaspoon lime juice

2 tablespoon sugar to sprinkle on the top towards the end of baking.



1] Grease and preheat oven to 350 degree F

2] In a mixing bowl, add eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla essence, lime juice, the fruits [liquid mix]

3] In a separate bowl, add  salt, baking powder and whole wheat flour , mix it well.[powder mix]

4] Add the powder mix to the liquid mix and blend well with a wooden spoon for 3-5 minutes.

5] Pour into the baking pan or tin and bake for 35-40 minutes.[ check with a tooth pick or knife, if it comes out clean, viola!  its done]

6] After 25 minutes of baking, open oven and sprinkle the two table spoon of sugar on the top of the cake.

7] Serve hot with fcream or ice cream.
