I get the paper on Fridays (and Saturdays and Sundays, actually), and in keeping with my continuing efforts at leading a normal life, I followed my Wii Fit time this morning with a glance through the news. There’s a lot of discussion in the letters and editorials about Arizona’s new immigration law. One letter was […]

Here’s the completed Salt Peanuts. It’s a wooly, fluffy pink thing that I may never have a chance to wear in public, but it’s very nice for hanging around the house in. I’m not hanging around the house today, because I must go out and interview a famous football coach. Possibly the most famous football […]

#1 daughter headed back down to her subtropical fastness this morning. We had fun, though we were talking a lot about work. I think I do talk a lot about work, which is probably a bad habit. We had gone to try to find a power cord for my scanner, which has somehow lost its […]

Today was a nice, normal day. #1 daughter arrived last night and we went out  to our town’s equivalent of Bourbon Street and strolled around checking the places I’m writing about as the “top 10 places to grab a beer.” Not that we grabbed beers. We walked up and down the street, pausing briefly to […]

Yesterday my menfolks helped me with the research for my “Top 10” article. My husband was sent home from work early (something happened with the power), so he went to this low dive that’s on many people’s Top 10 burgers lists. He brought burgers back for our lunch. I wasn’t all that impressed, though people […]

I went to bells last night, having been assured that I was needed. I played the bass clef, even though I was holding the bells for the treble clef. I caused other, similar kinds of trouble as well. They may be glad I’m gone. My Northerners, on the other hand, contacted me to ask for […]

So here are some things I’ve made. First, I made this sort of brochure with the PrintMaster. This is the one we’ve been talking about having our graphics guy do.   As it happens, I was working on a similar, though less fun-looking, brochure for a client — with illustrations done by our graphics guy. So […]

Happy almost Earth Day! Let me take you along with me on a walk, in honor of the occasion. This is one of our civilized city walks. We’re working on getting the whole town connected by nice walking and biking paths like these. We started with just a few trails, and we’re gradually connecting them […]

My new educational website is live. I hope you’ll go visit it. In fact, I hope you’ll tell all your friends to go visit it, too, because I’m excited about it. Why should you do something because I’m excited about it? No good reason. But you probably do sometimes go look at people’s new puppies […]

I was invited to apply for this job at oDesk:“Requirements:– You must be from the US and a native English speaker—no exceptions no matter how good your writing is!– You must be able to produce 10 articles daily– NO writing teams; the work tends to be inconsistent and too many excuses come from teams of […]
