First things first. You see, I don’t post on Sundays. Second, because what’s the point of saying ‘first’ first if there isn’t a second? Second, I don’t post twice in the same day. When Linda released the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, on Friday, I already had Saturday’s post written, edited – which Linda doesn’t... Continue Reading →
If we were having a beer, you’d want to know about my resolutions…again. “So, any New Year’s resolutions, or are you still thinking about them.” “You know I don’t like making resolutions.” “Bad track record?” “No, it’s arbitrary. I’m just as likely to think of an important goal on a random Saturday in April than... Continue Reading →
St Patrick’s Cathedral and I have not had a great history when it comes to photos. The one time I was actually inside, I didn’t have a camera. That was back when Faith was a low-number teenager and it was so cold in New York that we opted to add a fast-paced Stations of the... Continue Reading →
I guess I should put the explanation up front, lest I get in trouble with the folks who don’t like it when I make them look stuff up. So, in case you aren’t aware. R.O.I. stands for return on investment and it’s a typical, albeit often meaningless (in my opinion), measure of the value of... Continue Reading →
Sometimes, in spite of all the smart things they do, Amazon seems as dumb as a bag of hammers. Oh sure, they have warehouses that are so automated that they don’t even have to have lights on. They have One-click checkout and wish lists and reviews and oh-so-many shipping options. And, for whatever it is... Continue Reading →
One of three things usually happens here on a Saturday. My buddy and I visit Cheryl at the bar, or I participate in Linda G. Hill’s intriguing Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge. On rare occasions, I skip both for what I once would have called a “normal” post. Not today. Cheryl has the day off... Continue Reading →
Up until last Friday, I had a different post planned for today’s Thursday Doors. I won’t tell you much about it, since I might use it next week. I only mention those plans to highlight the fact that sometimes, plans have to change. Even for a blogger like me, who takes notes in Evernote, stores... Continue Reading →
No one in New England likes seeing it snow more than Maddie. There might be a few didn’t-study-for-the-algebra-test high school students who look forward to being able to procrastinate for an extra day, but their excitement at seeing snow doesn’t match this pup. And, their anticipation of that announcement being made pales in comparison to... Continue Reading →
This turned out to be a very nice way to personalize an otherwise generic gift. I was very happy with the results.

Hello friends and followers,
It has been a bit of off and on for me and writing as my work seems to be sucking most of my brain these days. And then there are the holidays. I swear I don’t know how I did much of what I managed when my four children were younger. I guess I have to plead temporary insanity or something like it. Today’s post was inspired my good blogging friend Dan Antion of No Facilities
Dan blogs about so many interesting things and you should check out his latest post, Christmas Traditions. He does a series called If We Were Having a Beer which is great. And, hey, I know the bartender so can get you a good drink. ;)
When I decided to jump back into some painting, I thought I would go easy and slip in with some little watercolor items. I was…
