Lift that bail tote that barge  I have given myself a homework assignment for this evening: I must watch Four Christmas's. Its been sitting there gathering dust in its little envelope since, oh, I don't know, a long time ago. ...more


Cooking  I just had a very ADD moment. I had settled in front of the machine and flipped through a couple or five sites I wanted to check on and then got to the business of getting an entry done. And then I decided that I really, really needed to make dog cookies! Right Now!

The ones where they have had to postpone events due to the unusually warm weather? The place where it’s rumored we live in igloos? It’s called Global warming….not just U.S. warming....more
