I would like to say sorry to all my blogging pals for my presumed absence. I do have a good excuse! There I was, merrily surfing the web for maps of Christian’s journey (in John Bunyan’s classic Pilgrim’s Progress). I saw the latest movie and was wowed. I have plans to go over the map […]

I’m tooting my own horn here, peeps. I just finished a few blog posts at my tech blog, The Older Geek. It’s one of my beloved blogs, a real labor of love. I created it so I could help other folks with tech issues that I battled through in the past. Much of it centers […]

More humorous tidbits I’ve accumulated while on Facebook or on the web. You can take this photo two ways. I choose to see it as the latest fad in rodeo competition: Horse Tossing. :grinny: SO. TRUE. :whistle: *chuckle* ME ME ME!!! I want one! Have a happy, friends!

I know! I know! I’ve hardly been around at all! And I’m not even on vacation yet, sheesh. I’ve been lurking. :grinny: I’ve been reading your posts but not commenting. Sorry! It’s just been pretty busy for me. ALL OF A SUDDEN, now, at the end of the summer season, a billion advertisers want me […]

Irene Is Good For Business…

Comments Off on Irene Is Good For Business…

I never thought I’d say that a hurricane was good, but I checked the stats for my travel blog yesterday, and the traffic has spiked dramatically. The reason? The hurricane. Hurricane Irene, to be precise. Hurricanes are rare animals here in New York and New England. There have only been a few that hit us […]

Where Were You on 8/23/11?

We shall never forget…. *takes off hat, holds hat to heart* I was on my bed, typing at my laptop (I write upstairs in my room, it’s quieter). Suddenly, I feel the bed swaying. Just a little. But it’s constant, so it gets my attention. As if someone is rocking the bed just a little […]

And it smells GREAT. There are four seasons to a year. You’d think that every season should last 3 months, right? I can’t think of any place on this earth where that happens. Here in Upstate New York, we have 5-6 months of winter, 1 month of spring, 4 months of summer, and 1 month […]

This morning I learned what “swag” means. My husband saw the word the other day (probably reading a blog over my shoulder) and asked, “What is ‘swag’? Where does that word come from?” I explained that swag is the loot bloggers (or online folks) get, usually from companies– tote bags, buttons, pens, promotional stuff, etc. […]

We’ve been laying low this week, due to the serious heat wave hitting the area. Hey, remember all those times I laughed at you folks in the South about the snow and cold? I take it back, all of it. :-p I’m a Northerner, my blood is too thick for this stuff! I saw on […]
