About Me

It's May 2009, the beginning of "Sweet Almond Tree!" 
Hello, one and all!  My name is Ana (short for Anastasia), and I live in Pennsylvania, in a suburban community near the GREAT city of PHILADELPHIA.  I was born in Northern Greece, and lived there until the age of 13.  I've been immersed in both Greek and American cultures, a fact that I am very proud of.  Here are some things I ponder:   
We're now at the dawn of the 21st century. In your mind, go back one hundred years. Think of what you know about 1909: tremendous changes have taken place since then. No one could have envisioned how things would be today, and today we have no idea how this new century will evolve for humans and for the flora and fauna of the earth. Will our oceans be clean safe havens 100 years from now? Will the mountains of our planet still be capped with ice and snow?  I hope we manage to live in harmony with the heritage of the earth...

Well, since it IS the beginning of the 21st century, I figured I should not be without my own blog.  I decided to get my toes wet and join the information age by BLOGGING!  What to expect here, at "Sweet Almond Tree?"  Some of my favorite recipes (mostly Greek), some of my adventures in my suburban garden, perhaps family members and friends will make an appearance, and most assuredly you will get to meet and learn all about my cuddly canine companions.

I wonder, are blogs today's version of Dear Diary, or does that honor belong to Facebook?
