where’d it all go?

green intentions

It’s that time of year when an old woman’s fancy turns to garden planning. Whenever the snow melts down far enough, I start visualizing where I want raised beds, and which shrubs i need to kill, and where I need to undo the things the previous owner had done, which at the time I paid […]

preppy bargains

I have been into fixing things since i got here.  It started with one of my rules, when i was packing I did bring some things which needed a bit of work, and some things that were down right broke. But they were things on my list of ‘things i intend to fix.’ Well one […]

speechless

i can’t be the only person who feels a little guilty for owning a 6L pressure cooker.   I shouldn’t have to explain that too much… it’s my lizard brain’s knee jerk reaction to helpless feeling shared with the rest of the world right now.   No one i know was involved in the bombing..as […]

One of the things one does to make yourself feeling better, when one is utterly broke is round up all the things in your house that you have been meaning to send back and then actually sending them back. The Maxpedition pouch with the stitching coming undone, the case for the kindle that doesn’t fit, […]

bells and whistles

the Kindle Fire is a quasi android tablet…..android is the freerange operating system that combats the global domination of the ipad and iphones IOS…The reason it is only quasi, is that Amazon WANTs you to buy stuff from THEM for this device…heck the opening flash page is a rotating advertisement ….apparently you CAN spend $15 […]
