Missing Old Blog Friends

I had so many blog friends at My Sisters Cottage and hope to get back in touch with many of you. I took a much-needed blogging break while I wrapped up my last year of teaching and prepared for retirement (Yay!) While this was going on, we were sorting through 30 years of junk downsizing, selling our big old Maine farmhouse and purchasing a smaller home near Casco Bay (aka "the ocean"). It was a crazy time.

When I was finally ready to start blogging again, I decided that it was time to "move on" in my blogging as I have been trying to do emotionally since my sister, Nancy (the "my sister" of  My Sister's Cottage) passed away. It is hard to believe that it has been three years since she lost her battle with ovarian cancer; it seems like yesterday and I miss her every day. In the spirit of moving on, I started a new blog, 22 Applegate Lane, which is where you'll find me now.


22 Applegate Lane is similar to My Sister's Cottage (because I haven't changed that much!) but is written from the perspective of a woman who now has more time to create, travel, and meet interesting people than she ever did before. I'm including features on Amazing Women, interesting Maine towns, decorating a downsized home, and what I'm learning in my 3-year effort to get and stay healthy ("The 150 Project"). Plus whatever else crosses my mind that day!


I miss so many of my old followers and friends and hope to get back in touch with each of you through 22 Applegate Lane. Thanks to bloggers Linda, Sherry and Pamela for finding me already!

Hoping to hear from you soon,

Here is  my testimony on how I was cured of HIV by Dr Akhigbe,with his natural herbal medicine.  on a regular basis in efforts to help others when I could. As you may know, each donation is tested.  Well, on July 6th I had a meeting with a Red Cross representative and was told that I had HIV. “What went through your mind when you heard that "Rose" Good question reader! To be honest, I thought my life was over, that I would ever find love, get married, have children or anything normal. Lucky for me I have an amazing support system.  My family supported me then I never thought that I was invincible to STD s or pregnancy or anything else parents warn their kids about. I just didn’t think about it. I was in a monogamous relationship and thought that I asked the right questions.  We even talked about marriage Scary.  During that time I was in college and donated blood on a re as well. who helped me in search of cure through the media.there we saw a good testimony of sister 'Kate' about the good work of Dr Akhigbe natural herbal medicine cure.then I copied his email address and contacted him. A good herbalist doctor with a good heart, he is kind, loving and caring. He replied back to my message and told me what to do. After a week the doctor sent me my herbal medicine and instructed me how to take it.Yes it worked very well, after drinking it I went to the hospital for another test and everything turned negative. What a wonderful testimony I can never forget in my life. Dr Akhigbe is a man who gave me a life to live happily forever so all I want you all to believe and know that cure of HIV is real and herbs is a powerful medicine and it works and heals.  Dr Akhigbe also used his herbal medicine to cure diseases like:   HERPES, DIABETES, SCABIES, HEPATITIS A/B, STROKE, CANCER, ALS, TUBERCULOSIS, ASTHMA, PENIS ENLARGEMENT, MALARIA, LUPUS, LIVER CIRRHOSIS, DEPRESSION, HIV/AIDS, EPILEPSY, BACTERIAL, DIARRHEA, HEART DISEASES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, PARKINSON'S, ALZHEIMER, COLD URTICARIA, HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS,INSOMNIA,  BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS, SCHIZOPHRENIA, JOINT PAIN, STOMACH PAIN, CHROME DISEASES, CHLAMYDIA, INSOMNIA HEARTBURN, ,  THYROID, MAR BURG DISEASES, MENINGITIS, ARTHRITIS, BODY WEAK, SMALLPOX, DENGUE, FEVER, CURBS, CHANCRE, AND OTHERS VARIOUS DISEASES/ VIRUS.   You are there and you find yourself in any of these situations, kindly contact Dr Akhigbe now to help you get rid of it. Here is his email address:      or you can write to him on whats app with his phone number:   +2349010754824.
  My appreciation is to share his testimony for the world to know the good work Dr Akhigbe has done for me and he will do the same for you.
