It Doesn’t Take Much to Entertain Us

| July 12, 2008

I was at Google Maps calculating the time it will take us to drive over to meet D2 tomorrow and retrieve our three young grandchildren, when I noticed that Google has a “Walking Directions” function. Beta, of course. We noted the time that it would take to “walk it”, 1 day, 6 hours, and it […]

Finish Something

| March 28, 2008

Yesterday, while Papa worked, I actually finished something. Not easy, but in keeping with my March resolution to waste less time, I really buckled down. In the course of visits to various libraries, cemeteries, and archives, I’ve managed to assemble a ton of material which is floating around my computer in digital format. There are […]

Back at It

| March 21, 2008

Yesterday, was looking over the logs for my sites and I noticed the contact form wasn’t working.  Don’t know for how long, don’t know why.  Frustrating.  Anyhow, I just went through the all the WarrenWeb family sites, and fixed all the problems.  At least all of them I found.  If you used to have a […]

Wii

| March 18, 2008

So we went to Costco the other day, to get some weed and feed for the grass.  I try to go there as little as possible, there are too many “things” in that store.   Waiting for us right inside the door was this.  It jumped in the cart.  We started looking at new laptops, but (some) sanity prevailed. We […]

WII!!!!!!!!!

| March 12, 2008

S-in-L found a Wii under the tree this year. I never saw one before last Sunday, but had heard plenty. It was GD1 who asked her Dad to take it out so they could play. She played several games, like darts and a basketball shoot. The best part for her was selecting the clothing for […]

A Little Snow

| February 7, 2008

Yesterday, there actually was some winter weather around here. We got ice/sleet/rain/snow on Wednesday night, creating a real mess. Yesterday morning, I spent about 2 hours shoveling what looked for all the world like a frozen margarita off our drive. It wasn’t a lot of fun, but it was good exercise. After a busy rest […]

****Winter Storm Warning

| February 5, 2008

MyCast has thoughtfully sent me yet another winter storm warning. Oh wait, they wouldn’t send it if I didn’t subscribe. I am beginning to wonder why I did subscribe; I have a faint recollection that it seemed like a good idea at the time. Once again, we may get inches of snow, or some sleet […]

The Keys are Found, and a Speech is Made

| January 31, 2008

So, after I turned the Front porch and our entry way upside down yesterday, Papa walked out into the garage and immediately found my keys on top of a box of boots. I am grateful, and thankful that I had the good sense to marry him almost 39 years ago. He never once said anything […]

Updating

| November 7, 2007

Yesterday’s e-mail brought the unwelcome news that another of the scripts I run on some of my sites needs upgrading. I hate the process, even though it’s pretty simple. Don’t get me wrong, I love that people actually write scripts that can be used with a donation or without a charge. I really would rather […]

Quick Thursday Post

| October 18, 2007

I’ve been reading a bunch of gene blogs, reminding me to either remove the tag and make some gen posts. At least it might remind me. There is a lot of good material and wisdom out there, partake when you can. Time is catching up to me. The beautiful princess costume is complete, and the […]
