Saturday Morning Musings

Yesterday was not the heat-fest that had been promised; that honor may go to today.  In any case, I still sweated myself silly, and experienced yet another humid and difficult night.  When I awoke today, it was 80ºF, but with the humidity factored in, it was about 86ºF.  That was at 7:15am. So, I did…

Seeking My Creativity Groove

Since I had nothing better to do, I figured that I’d check my bookshelf for that vintage cooking series that I mentioned earlier.  At the very least, I could go through it and see if there was anything worth preparing. The short answer is nope.  Nothing in them that I would cook, let alone eat,…

Thank You for Your Order

Apparently, being a squeaky wheel has benefits.  An hour after I sent my complaint to Anovos, I received no fewer than four (4) e-mails, all of which assured me that my order was now “packed, sealed, and shipped.” Two weeks, nothing.  One snotty e-mail, action!

Well, What *Do* You Have?

A couple of years ago, a group of local businesses got together and pooled their cash to take out an advertisement.

You know what’s pretty darn hard to find locally? 


Been suffering from the same headache for three days now.  It’s gotten better, but I’ve got no clue as to why it won’t go away. Nothing obvious causing any stress, so I’m thinking that it’s either my lack of sleep or diet.  Either way, I can’t take much more of this…

Vroom-Vroom, Part Deux

In our last thrilling episode, my car was on the verge of doing something awful . . .
