Month: May 2010


It was only a matter of time.  Someone has taken the best ideas from Facebook and made a whole new type of online meeting spot. 

Perennial Problem

So I decided to pick up some perennials for the front garden to fill in the holes where we pulled out some grasses that were growing too big.  We transplanted the grasses in the back where they can go nuts if they want.  In case you’re not garden literate, perennials come back every year and annuals die …

Faeries, Ye are Welcome Here!

It’s a regular joke around our house:  “I sure hope the laundry fairies come this weekend!”  “Gee, the vacuuming fairy better get to work!”  And so on.

So Glad I Found Lost

All of the meandering, confusing and intricate plotlines of Lost finally came together last night like strands of yarn in a tight weave!

In my former life as a partner in a jingle/commercial production studio, and throughout my radio career, I’ve learned a lot about radio commercials. It goes beyond what a person likes or dislikes.  It’s what works!

My Personal Diet Solution

The time has come.  My blood test results have all come back and I’m in almost perfect health.  I have no cholesterol issues, no thyroid problems, nothing that is contributing to my current health concern except the usual factors like overloading my pie hole and not spending enough time getting active.
