Do You Need a Pan Flute?

I think it’s very important that you all go and figure out if you need a pan flute or not.

I Remembered!

I remembered what I was going to write about! I should probably save this for a novel or short story, but don’t you think you have earned a special posting? I think you have. All 3 of you who read this site regularly. Sunday night there were a lot of odd conversations. VERY odd. We […]

When You Have 2 Hours to Think

I had the really pleasant “2 hours to drive what normally takes 40 minutes” commute this morning. People, if you can’t drive in the snow, stay home and let the rest of us get to work. Of course, I have four new tires on my van, so I’m feeling a little better about driving in […]

Sunday Afternoon Challenge

Okay, only a few hours left to the Leominster challenge on Flickr. The challenge was to take a photo of a door. Nothing specific on the type of door, mind you, just that it couldn’t be a photo you’d taken prior to my issue of the challenge. Upload yours to flickr and add it to […]

Wednesday Is Idol Day

I actually forced myself to sit through last night’s American Idol. I am hoping that the reason everyone was so lame is because they were so completely overwhelmed by being in the final 24. I’m hoping. I’m a huge huge fan of Chris Sligh, though. Enough that for the first time since Idol debuted, I […]

Don’t Be Mocking Me

Okay, Junior and I were taking photos today. That was our activity. We did take a bunch of pictures up at Skyview Middle School, which can be seen in my personal Leominster set (they are also in the Leominster group I linked to below.) That little trip went fairly well, considering it was about 500 […]

Flickring

I just created a Leominster MA group on Flickr. There was already a Fitchburg group. I’m going to make the description that it’s not just for photos of Leominster, but for photos from photographers from Leominster. http://www.flickr.com/groups/leominster/ I’m going to try to go out and take a few photos today. I am really going to […]

It’s Backup Day!

I’m working from home because Leominster called a snow day, so Junior is trying to figure out how to make snowballs out of sleet. Someone is bound to get hurt, I just want to call that one early. The conversation will sound a lot like I got hurt!Put some ice on it.That’s how I got […]

I Did NOT Make Shoo Fly Pie

I don’t even know what Shoo Fly Pie is. I think it’s molasses-based super sweet pie. Just the kind of thing that gives dentists the heebie-jeebies. Our house is infested with what I call “banana bugs”. They got in the house via banana, and found an onion that was on the counter behind something else, […]
