Around the Interwebz

I’m still recovering from 2012. It was a whammy of a year, especially the final few months. I’m usually glad to see a previous year end and a fresh, new one start, but I’m a bit apprehensive about what 2013 holds. I read the headlines and they make me more and more nervous every day. […]

Classic FAIL. And it doesn’t look staged to me. Ouch. But hey — at least that pricey windshield wiper is OK! *** I finally had to break down and get Windows 8 (required for work). It should be here in a few days. UGH. I’m dreading the change. I’d downloaded the Preview Beta version as […]

Postcards From the Hedge – Mr. Rogers, Russia, and Rice

When my husband and I were first married, we got an answering machine for our telephone. This was in the telemarketer heyday, in the early 1990s, and we were literally plagued with solicitor phone calls. (This was before I knew to remove our number from the public directory). Anyway, instead of opting for the boring […]

Bad Night For Leaving Comments

October 5, 2012

Well I know when it’s time to quit. I haven’t visited blogs much all week so I thought I’d cram all the visiting in tonight. For some reason, every single time I wrote a comment on a blog, the blog either crashed, the comment system crashed, or the comment just never went through. And in […]

I think it stinks that Google does not include our non-Blogspot blogger email avatars when we comment on other blogs. That’s just so mean. *** Most email programs “ding” when you have new email. Mine dings ALL. THE. TIME. It “dings” out of the blue, whether I have new email or not. I’m still gullible […]

I have gotten, like, ONE comment this week! From Lin, who is such a sweety. Thanks, Lin! Don’t leave me, guys! it’s just a busy week for me! I have been traveling and trying to squeeze in the typical laundry/dishes/cooking/cleaning/kid-management/cat-care jobs while trying to keep my job, my husband, and my travel blog at the […]

We Visited William Seward’s House

July 18, 2012

We traveled out to Auburn, NY, recently and had a little extra time before heading home. On a whim, we stopped at the William Seward Home and Historic Site in downtown. I knew very little about the man (something about Alaska and Abraham Lincoln?) but what I learned on the visit knocked my socks off. […]

After long hours writing articles all day, my brain is fried and the house is a disaster. I took most of the month of June off, working sporadically. Vacation is over. So in the evening when I need to come up with something here, I’m dry. Oh, I have a number of stories in my […]

Well, I wasn’t going to write anything today because my schedule is CRAZEEEEE and I’m feeling a bit rushed. But I have a lull before I have to cook dinner, look over my son’s schoolwork, and plant the garden…. yeah, I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Nothing like a good dose of procrastination to spice […]

Thanks to all who sent your condolences here and on my other blogs and social networks, about the hack attack I suffered. I am happy to say that (Lord willing) the problem is resolved. My blogs are clean. Because of the nature of my web hosting (shared hosting), all my blogs (13 of them!) were […]
