a fabulous b-side

After the dinosaurs went extinct, a baby boy was born in Bethlehem and nearly 1900 years later Thomas Alva Edison invented the phonograph.  As the recording medium grew in popularity, record companies began to produce small 7″ albums often called 45s (the rpm at which they were played.)  There was an A-side and a B-side.  […]

Am I hot or cold?

The answer is: I am fickle.  And so are you, I’d bet.  When it’s cold outside {like now}, we dream of the warmer days at the pool or barbecues on someone’s back porch.  And then we’re reminded of the endless swim meets, of the thick wall of heat that greets you when leaving the house, […]

do you hear what I hear?

No one would ever accuse me of being a talented singer.  No one.  But, I do make a joyful noise around the holidays.  And so, I have my car radio tuned to our local Easy Listening station which from Thanksgiving to Christmas plays non-stop holiday schmaltz.  And I eat it up!  I sing all of […]

Mister O

I had a teacher in high school that we affectionately called Mr. O.  This little guy here though doesn’t have a beard and doesn’t teach listless sophomores about details of Modern European History.  This new Mr. O has only been around for about two and a half weeks.   Isn’t he adorable?  It’s usually hard to […]

Who's a sucker for a big sky?

No rainbows or sunsets here, but I love the big, blue sky.  We have had a mixed bag of weather on vacation: overcast, to rain, to cloudy, to perfect blue.  Here is a collection of sky snaps.  Enjoy.  SPL That’s my son skiing.  Doesn’t he look so little? Moody blue sky that is threatening rain […]

It's too darn hot

I took the kids on a field trip the other day, because it was 102F outside and I wanted to do something fun, but indoors.  We have been having what feels like record-breaking temps recently.  I’m sure that there’s some Nino/Nina something-0r-other to explain the wacky weather. However, for our outing, we decided on the […]

The ones that got away: poll

Thanks to all who voted in our poll yesterday. Our clear winner was  The boy at the birthday party.  CONGRATS! These are some great photos, but not necessarily the ones you’d want on your wall (unless you’re me.) I love the quirky faces and funny expressions.   I need to find my ice-cream-covered-face shots for later… […]
