Replacing a bathtub handle is SUPPOSED to be a piece of cake, right? Well, remember, this house is 150+ years old, and the folks who lived here before […]

Friday Fragments: Things I Learned or Did This Week

June 10, 2011


I found the idea for this post topic from my friend Karen, who regularly does it. I like her posts so I figured I’d give the idea a try. I found out that age has not helped me overcome heat intolerance. When I was a kid, I would nearly faint from the intense summer heat […]

Job Interview Q’s: How Would You Answer?

June 4, 2011


I never did well on tests in school. I passed them (well, most of them), but answers to tests always eluded me, especially multiple choice. I have this really weird propensity to “think outside the box.” Maybe it comes from growing up in a broken and sometimes violent home, always trying to look for alternative […]
