Road Trip!

It was a simple quest.Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer. But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo.  I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow - untouched.  Now we were facing the consequences. India's last class was on May…See More

Vintage Ads that make you go "What???"

I have found so many vintage things around the internet and thought I would start sharing them with you all. For starters. How we begin with a look back and some ads that leave you wondering..."Babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and "fitting in" during those awkward pre-teen and teen years." I guess it would be…See More

La Fhéile Pádraig Shona Daoibh!   Being 1/2 Irish, and a Grammar Nazi, I feel it's my responsibility to share this post from paddynotpatty:Solemn League and CovenantEach and every year millions of Irish, Irish-ish and amateur alcoholics are needlessly distracted from their Holy Tradition of drinking themselves into a stupor in the name of Saint…See More

This is one fear I don't think I'll ever conquer

5:45am That's what time it is right now and I'm as close to wide awake as I can get with less than an hour and a half of sleep.  I love the weather. Rain? Love it!  Walking in it. Sitting on a porch watching it. The scent of it. Everything about it! Snow? As long as I don't have to go anywhere, I love the beauty of it.  The shimmer of the sun on the crystals.  The frozen droplets on branches. I've been known to wander around in my PJs and boots in 20 degree weather, with one of my kids…See More

Some Dreams Are Just To Bizarre To Explain

Sitting around with Matthew discussing prescription drug commercials and wondering about the various side-effects. So many to choose from.  How do the patients know which to select?  I mean, that's why they list them, right?  So you can go to your doctor and tell him which side-effect you would want. I think that is very thoughtful of the drug companies. Today one of the choices given was "unusual dreams".  Which makes us wonder - what is considered an unusual dream?  I don't dream often…See More

A Child So Few Can Understand.

The horrific events that took place in Connecticut last week have shocked the world. The thought of someone going into a school and killing innocent children in cold blood is so much more than we can fathom.  Just as frightening is the reaction of so many people toward the killer. So many people wishing his eternal damnation.  Being an avid internet user, I…See More

When Sandy gives you rain...

Hurricane Sandy left us cold and wet on Halloween. Normally we would hold Trunk or Treat in our church parking lot but the storm made us make some changes to our tradition.  Because we have a large lobby and gym, our leader - Fred - decided we would be holding what Matthew and I are calling Table or Treat.  …See More
