Remember when you were a kid and schools would be closed because of snow? Wasn’t that one of the best feelings ever? Snow days in the work-a-day world aren’t quite so much fun, but it’s still nice not to have to get up at dark-o’clock and clear the driveway and then drive to the office... Continue Reading →
“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “most/least.” Use one or both of the words in your post or just write with one or both in mind. But whatever you do, have fun!” I read the SoCS prompt before leaving work yesterday and my mind got stuck on the thought that: “When the... Continue Reading →
Back in the day – no, this isn’t going to be a story about walking through knee-high snow on my way to school in the ‘60s. It could be, but it’s about a different day. The day when I had one PC and it ran DOS. Email and the Internet weren’t things – that day!... Continue Reading →

We are about as far apart as you can get geographically (CT – Southern Cal), but something seems to resonate between our two blogs. As I was writing my last entry about airline pricing, Dan published this gem. The only thing worse than flying is flying next to the wrong person. I hope you enjoy reading it.

One of the emerging family traditions in our house is for my daughter and I to play a board game when she is visiting for a holiday. A couple of years ago, I got lucky and found the “Pittsburgh Edition” of Monopoly on Craigslist. Faith loves to play that edition because she gets to own... Continue Reading →
I’ve been trying to do more with my photos lately. When I saw a post from someone that I follow that responded to this prompt, I thought I might join. I didn’t actually see the prompt yesterday, but I think I have a recent photo that works for it. At least I was thinking along... Continue Reading →
A few days ago, I shared the 11th through 20th most interesting photos of all time from my Flickr site. As promised, in this post, I will reveal interesting photos 1 – 10. Ta Da. Of course, the real reason I split these pictures into two groups was to provide myself some cover. I have... Continue Reading →
