Here at Poor Richard’s Almanac, we have a lot to say for ourselves. We post at least once a day, on a wide variety of topics. You can never be quite sure just what we’ll tackle next.

However, we recognize that it’s not easy to keep up with all this verbiage from us, your own blog, and every other blog on earth. So to make things easier, every week, we select our own favorite posts from the week’s pickings and list them here so if you’ve missed any that sound intriguing, it’s easy to catch up. Just scroll down or search the title in our search bar at upper right.

Here are this week’s picks:

Help! The greeblies have gotten my geranium! We confess that this isn’t necessarily a great post, we’re just trying to urge more of you to read it and tell us what’s attacking our plant.

Good times for the traditionally built. A new novel and a cookbook spell excitement in the world of the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and its heroine, the “traditionally built” lady detective, Mma Ramotswe.

Scottish spices. Read this one for the Drunken Rhubarb Crisp recipe.

Speaking of spices. Silence Dogood, the original Spice Girl, discovers that recent research reveals that the average American keeps 40 spices in the home. We’ve come a long way, baby!

The best mayonnaise. Leave it to Cook’s Illustrated to discover what Southerners have always known. Find out which mayo won, then use it to make a luscious homemade pimiento cheese spread.

That’s it for this week! We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!
