THE PODCAST!

Okay, maybe this will go faster once I get used to the software. Or if I hire someone to do it for me. That person will also figure out how to make the files smaller. Sorry. Here is the first podcast, stored on my mac.com site because all the tools I use made it easy […]

2008 Goals

I got an email yesterday from Chris Baty, the guy who created NaNoWriMo about this thing he does every year where you are supposed to commit to doing something you’ve never done/have always wanted to do but were too nervous, busy, whatever, to do it.

How Could This Be True?

Snow Fort

Snow Fort, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck. Please note that the end of the driveway was not shoveled. However, tunnels on the front yard were very carefully made, because the boys have their priorities.

I Do Not Make this Up

I will share the question of the day, as posed by Junior when I was talking about the little girl who was born with 4 extra limbs being able to go home. “What if Britney Spears had a baby she named Spears Spears and it had two faces.” Well, that is is good question, isn’t […]
