Pictures or it didn’t happen?

Last night, I did an amazing dinner (if I do say so myself), but completely forgot to take a picture of the food. I was too engaged with the people at our table to think about reaching for a camera to capture the pile of fresh-off-the-grill skewers. Now more than ever, our lives are lived…

Don’t confuse me with logic… I’ll just take it on faith, thanks!

So, there I sat, enjoying my coffee and skimming through Facebook. It’s a common activity both personal and professional and as a result, my “friends” list includes a rather wide range of people from all walks of life. A point that was brought home to me via a coffee-sputtering moment of disbelief. Let me make something…

Reviewing the Draft…

No, sillies, I’m not talking politics or sports… I tend to collect a lot of possible posts, posts-in-progress and notes for potential-posts-in-progress. Eventually, I wind up with a cluttered pile of draft posts that can drive me nuts. They range from the really frustrating, “Dammit! I got so darn busy I totally forgot about that…

Hey Facebook! What’s up with this weird stuff?

Then I told myself, “Nah! People aren’t that… well… that… dumb.” And then came Honey Boo Boo. I don’t watch TV. I don’t…

Destiny is calling…

Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook and I deliberately keep my friends list on the small side because of it. Really, I don’t want to be inundated with all the junk. And the settings I adjust to hide the stuff seem to change for no discernible reason, all in the name…

Shhh… the bogosphere is recovering from the Olympic Virus

I’ve always enjoyed watching the Olympics – it’s always inspiring to watch excellence at work. This year, watching them was a little challenging. You see, we gave up cable some time ago. It wasn’t a cost-saving measure, it was simply a matter of practicality. We just don’t watch that much television, and when we do…
