When faced with tough times for my mother's Parkinson's and a dear family pet going to sleep forever tomorrow (cancer), I'm making applesauce. No fresh berries for freezer jam so the next best thing is the last of my Fuji apples. When life gets tough, the tough cook comfort food.

Some people are thinking: "Can Tren deliver great applesauce despite the pain?"

Charlie Munger: "Assume life will be really tough, and then ask if you can handle it. If the answer is yes, you’ve won.” 

Tears add salt. Bonnie Raitt provides a soundtrack.

"Life will have terrible blows in it; horrible and unfair blows. Some people recover and others don’t. Your duty is not to be submerged in self-pity, but to utilize the terrible blow in constructive fashion." Charlie Munger
