I had no idea I was so popular. Yesterday was the first time in ages I wasn't near a computer for the better part of the day - interpret "better" as you will. So when I open my email this morning, I have scads of messages, and you wouldn't ... Read more

I was looking through my extensive (read: bloated) picture files for some things to post on my page and I came across the poster for a women's suffrage procession, for March 3, 1913 - a century ago today. Except for election days I tend to ... Read more

Houseguests plus a (brief, BP check) doctor's appointment, so chances are I won't be around today to do a "B" blog. (Is that a subconscious statement on the quality? Sort of like second-billing in a double-feature?) Today is Saint David's D... Read more

...and Sparklers who are supposed to be cleaning house. A-heh. I dropped in on BOPPY_'s blog (from yesterday, Why Do I Blog @ Spark People?) and ended up writing a blog. You know what Kurt said - so it goes, so it goes... * * * Wh... Read more

A quote I came across yesterday: "Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get." It's attributed to Dale Carnegie, the original self-improvement guru. Although there are a lot of jokes about his best-known book, "How ... Read more

One of the un-features I lament on SP is the inability to post pictures to other members. Oh, I suppose such a system could lend itself to abuse -well, when it comes to the internet, what couldn't? - and maybe it would take up bandwidth or ... Read more

Last night was another dinner party by our Japanese-chef friend. We were back to the okonomiyaki - a cross between a sort-of pizza and a sort-of omelet with toppings - with the emphasis this time on the type from a different region. If you compa... Read more

Already starting to run late - typical Monday. Bizzy day ahead. Bizzy week, for that matter. I suppose I had more energy in those days, being younger 'n' all, but I truly don't know how I kept up with things when the kids were home, I was workin... Read more

It's all about the D-words today: de-clutter, de-cide, de-tach, de-stress, de-ssert... oh, wait, not that last. But otherwise it's de-finitely a D-Day. Haha. Off to go and Do (see? another D-word). L8R. Maybe. Have a good'un, Sparkler... Read more

And it's indeed a quick one this AM - people coming to look at the house at 10 AM (on a Friday, yet - we're probably the first in a long chain for them of three days of viewings) so I need to go and do. But I didn't want to leave you withou... Read more
