I’m enjoying a small lead in the game. # Scrabble results: no comment. # Getting ready to do the ‘ol switcheroo to WordPress 2.6. I want to make sure [...]

Knitting Show Off

As I was reading my Wonder Woman neighbor Gina’s blog today, I realized that I haven’t posted any pictures of my knitting projects here.  At least I don’t think so.  Forgive me if I have and I duplicate anything.  I haven’t been knitting all that long, but I enjoy it and have done quite a [...]

I came across this recipe awhile back and couldn’t wait to try it out. Warning: This stuff is addictive! This makes a lot of bars and unless you want to gain 10 lbs., it’s probably best to share. These are very rich – FIVE eggs in this one. This is one of my new favorite [...]

Okay, I have no idea how to do this myself, but *somebody* needs to do it. Here’s the deal. I don’t like veggies. Never have, most likely never will. I have some exceptions – fresh green beans, sweet corn, potatoes, carrots in some forms…I think that covers them all. Other than that elite group, no [...]

Obviously, we also survived day 2 of the convention. It wasn’t as much fun as the first day for me, but I was getting exhausted. It tires me out to be around a lot of people and action for extended periods of time. The main vendor halls were even hotter than the day before. They [...]
