30-second wonder

At animoto today, I created almost effortlessly this cute video of our recent vacation. These 30-second shorts are free, but if you want to create longer features, you’ll have to shell out a few dollars.  It’s all quite reasonable.   Check out the photos; it’ll only take you 30-seconds. Enjoy. SPL

a day for Pops and a freebie

Hats off to single parents! I don’t know how they do it.  I live in a military town where spouses can be gone for six months to a year at a time and I am whining when my husband comes home late from work.  But, it just proves how much I need and depend on […]

hooting my own horn {sic}

So, I’d prefer to be more humble, but sometimes I am just so excited about what I did that I have to share. I hope that you appreciate the fact that I am not a cake decorator and that I am not meticulous when I cook or bake.  So this large confectionery/baking endeavor was a […]

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 […]
