A Precious Friend Gone

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I break my long silence. A dear, dear friend, Mike Briggs, passed away very unexpectedly this morning. I hope someday to be able to put into words what he and his precious Patty mean to me, but for now, I’ll simply pass on what I know. He […]

Happy Halloween 2016!


I don’t know what to say, except I’ve just gone into hermit mode, big time. Sorry! I’ve been busy, and there’s just been…stuff going on. Even poor little Wiishu has been pretty much ignored. Sigh. However, all is actually well, and I’ll rejoin the human race soon. I’ll have some pics eventually, and […]

Bye bye xfinity

Yes…we’re doing it. We’re ditching cable except for internet. No more sucky modem, no more sucky router, no more ever-increasing charges, no more yearly renegotiation…

Necessary stuff:

Modem: Arris surfboard

Router: Linksys WRT1900ACS

Amazon Fire TV

VOIP (Voice over IP) phone: 1-VoIP

Total cost for setup: around $600 including a year of VoIP

Total savings […]

It's done!

Well, almost. We’ve still got the baseboards, but that can wait. I’ll be posting more soon. Right now..I’m off to get my hip seen to…at last. No point til this was done.

Well…I was going to post a picture, but my site’s screwed up. Oh joy, oh rapture. Another round tuit. Ah, well, at least […]

Words/phrases you'd like to see banned from TV

As I sit here, exiled in the torn apart office because of a plethora of paint upon my person, waiting for the first coat of red (yes red) paint in the converted now-open closet to dry, I thought I’d take a moment to engage the minimal computer setup for something other than GW2. So…OMG! A […]

The potato did it.

Christmas. Trying to do something nice for my spousal unit. She always cooks. I took over to make the turkey, mashed spuds and gravy and green bean casserole. (Fancy, I know…) I’d already done the cookies and banana bread the day before. The turkey was browning nicely. Time to cook the spuds and put in […]

Merry Christmas!


This is, like, not exactly news to those who know me. OTOH…I hate a dirty house. I hate chaos around me. I have a fairly sensitive nose and I hate stinky stuff.

I’ve struggled for years to figure why I hate it so much when I love the result so much…and have finally realized: housework […]

Yes, Virginia…and all the other states and countries…

It lives.

Sorry to be so flipping silent this year. It’s been a little crazy. I haven’t even kept up with pictures, so I can’t even tell you what all I’ve been doing. I just know…the year has disappeareded. I’m not even going to edit this thing, so…beware! Likely lots of wordsalad ahead.

Right now, […]

OMG Tanya and Nancy together again

Thanks to Sharon’s FB post, I found this gem. These two charming nutcases have put together a hallway “museum” to Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding. They did a kickstarter for $75 to blow up some pics, and ended up with over $2000. It went into the museum and likely to the opening party. This is […]
