A time lapse of Steve cooking Thanksgiving Day lunch: ham, squash casserole, and sweet potato casserole. Yum! (Since his birthday was the next day, I used a vintage look. [EG] )
A extraordinary chance encounter with the human spirit … On Sunday we took my cousin to see the Golden Gate Bridge from the south tower. As we parked and exited the car, heading toward the cliff-side bluffs, a former battery, to view the bridge, I noticed an elderly, white-haired man walking ahead of me. He […]

Yes, I got so many amazing holiday gifts that were nicely wrapped under our Solstice tree. [I'm being an Xmas warmonger this year just to piss off FAUX News.] One of my favorites is an odd thing, an odd contraption indeed! It’s a Penguin. It’s made by SodaStream and creates your own carbonated drinks at […]
Yep, I have one. I own it. I actually embrace it at times. Most often I hold it back. But it is my rebellious spirit that makes me root for the underdog and makes me stand up for what I believe is right. (As a child I was always so compliant. Not so much so […]
A few quirky tidbits of interest… Shoals A group of squid isn’t, unfortunately, called a squad, but is instead called a shoal. What a shame. (Source: BoingBoing.net) However, be it known, that I am officially introducing several words into the language: people who own one of these cute little new Fiats are called Fiatecians (Fee […]
On the way to dinner with friends we came upon this house! The photo was shot with my iPhone in the dark; so, it’s blurry and you can’t see all of the blinking and animated objects. But, you get the idea!
This whole article by Mark Sandlin on “The War on Christmas“ is brilliant and needs to be shared! I encourage you to take the time to read it. But today, our stories [of Christmas] are told from places and positions of power. Today, Christianity is the dominant culture. So, instead of story of a olive […]
It all started last night. The wind from the ocean was blasting through the house making loud sounds as it did. The sheers in the bedroom were flying about continuously. And it was cool—very, very cool: in the lower 50′s. Perfect sleeping weather! I love days like today: sunshine, very breezy, and very cool: 62º. […]
Lots of wonderful seasons greetings: family newsletters, cards, photos. Some were very clever and cute. I especially liked the postcard with nothings but 4 pictures across, each of the four girls up in the air (had jumped on the trampoline) holding a sign: ”Merry,” “Christmas,” “Happy,” “New Year!” Their hair was flying, and it just […]
Today, the holiday cheer is being packed up in boxes. But before all good things come to an end, a few photos, including some very rare shots of the little know Christmas Fairies. They are very difficult to photograph because they only appear in the wee hours of twilight and flit about near the ceilings […]

Mother will hate this post. Last year, for the first time, I created a Season’s Greetings banner that popped up (using MediaboxAdv) when you first hit my blog. This year, when I went to operationalize that same code, things were not very straight forward. This post is to remind me next year how to do […]
Boys and their toys! Of course, I can’t complain. I would be up their with them if this were my church. While not particularly musically gratifying, this is certainly clever, creative and fun. North Point Community Church‘s iBand. (YouTube Link)
