Loved it. Laughed out loud. Everyone has been there!* * Yes, I’m a week late, but I’m getting caught up on blogsy things today!
I really like living in Sausalito. It’s the smallest town I’ve ever lived in (between 6,000 and 7,000 residents); yet, I feel as though I live in a big city with San Francisco just across the bridge. And then there is the Marin Headlands in the back yard… But I was recently reminded that I […]
Look carefully at my Solstice Gnome. Who does he look like that’s been in the news for his prejudiced remarks lately? The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without my commenting on some of the ignorant remarks given national attention this year, during this year’s horrific “War on Christmas.” Jesus is white? (Riiiiiiight!! And the manger […]
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 […]
