We Made It!

And even slept. Our only delay was on the flight leaving SeaTac, which had to be de-iced. Denver and Washington were both a mild 50 degrees and we had no issues at all.  We both napped on the short legs, and got a solid 3 or so hours of sleep on the segment over the Atlantic. The Business/1st Class section …Continue reading →

The Wiccan Rede

Sometimes, when I’m asked to write a piece, I find myself doing soemthing completely different. Today, this is what resulted. The Wiccan Rede Comments welcomed (and encouraged!)


Dear Whomever Thought It Was A Good Idea To Call and Wish Us a Merry Christmas at 6:30am: It wasn’t. I’m not sure if you’re family. I would apologize for telling you that you called a wrong number and hanging up on you IF you had done something other than giggle and wish me a merry christmas after I said …Continue reading →

That website went away (bought out by Yahoo, I believe) and since the original process was more thna a little frustrting, we haven’t bother to redo the uploading into a new format.

But J. mentioned that he really doesn’t like pumpkin …Continue reading →

J and I are leaving at stupid early on Dec 30th (Tues), arriving in Paris stupid early on the 31st and returning home stupid late on the 5th. After checking into our hotel (Grand Hotel St. Michel, right next to the Sorbonne) …Continue reading →

Where Am I?

(This was the serious of clues I provided to J about the biggest gift of our year. I wonder if you’ll guess before he did?) Where Am I? Imagine how delightful it would be if you actually lived in the busy urban street scene you are in, with its iconic tower looming tall. Whaa? Sure, it would be a fractured …Continue reading →

Homemade Gifts: Pumpkin Butter

I enjoy making and giving (the giving more than the making, truth be told) homemade gifts every year. For one thing, it allows me to sidestep the consumeristic merry go round of the holiday season, for another, it allows me to give soemthing special to people I might normally be unable to express my appreciation for (like, my boss). In …Continue reading →
