So it started with this: (there was supposed to be a picture of a cat sleeping in a basket here, but I took it with my phone and tried to email it to myself so I could upload it here, and the mail server is down. It'll show up eventually) ... Read more

Okay, link problems straightened out. Thanks to HIPPICHICK1 for showing this to me initially. This guy is nothing short of amazing. Totally worth a couple minutes of your time to watch this video. Read more

Here's the link for the science part - just cut and paste the whole deal (and beware - the graphics are really annoying):

Miscellaneous ramblings.

I spent a week with my daughters over Christmas, came home Tuesday, and I always need a couple days of "re-entry" after a long visit with them. (I was there for a week at Thanksgiving, too.) My house is too quiet, I'm tired (it's a 400 mile dr... Read more

Effort: Small vs Heroic

Thursday, January 01, 2015      12 comments

This is something I've been thinking about for a while now. When I was in my thirties (I'm bearing down hard on 60 now, although I don't feel like it) I was heavily into body building. I never wanted to enter a competition, but I did all t... Read more

Fascinating and simple recipe to try: Pine syrup!

Sunday, November 09, 2014      7 comments

This stuff is amazing in tea and I'm sure in a bunch of other things I haven't thought of yet. Following the pine syrup recipe is the recipe for using it in an Alpine Manhattan. I have not yet made this but it sounds wonderful, and would m... Read more

Okay, time for a new plan.

All summer - basically early May through now - I work as a landscaper and professional gardener. emoticon I don't... Read more

Road rage and other misplaced angers.

Thursday, September 04, 2014      9 comments

I remember years and years ago, my husband and I were going somewhere in the city (Philadelphia), I was driving, and someone cut me off on the Schuylkill Expressway. The fact that the Schuylkill (known locally as the "sure kill") Expressway was... Read more

It's been a wild and wooly summer.

I ran away from SP in the spring when I inexplicably gained weight. I've since learned that that's a silly thing. The next week I'd lost it again, whether by whim of weight or scale. We weigh what we weigh - it has as much to do with our over... Read more

I'm out - for a while anyway.

Saturday, May 10, 2014      17 comments

This is just stupid and inexplicable, but after ten days of landscaping six hours a day, drinking tons of water, eating salads and very little else, Ive gained seven pounds. I don't understand how this is possible, but it's same scale, same pla... Read more

My daughter, who is 23 years old, informed me this morning that she is building something called a cafe racer -apparently some sort of small, fast motorcycle. I was horrified, but that's beside the point. When I asked her (repeatedly) why she'... Read more

Quicky explanation of the term "blood moon"

Monday, April 14, 2014      16 comments

Apparently some folks are concerned that seeing a "blood moon"means the earth is going to end or something like that.While I have complete respect to anyone and everyone's religious beliefs, this time science can come to the rescue. There i... Read more

So...April goals.

- Well, the first one is to walk 10,000 steps per day, although I recognize that the way my life goes I'm more likely to have 20,000 step days mixed in with 2,000 step days. If I get 50K or 60K in a week, I'll be happy. - The second is t... Read more

New moon, new month (soon), new week, new FitBit(!), and maybe a new me.

Sunday, March 30, 2014      11 comments

I'm another year older (59, God help us all), and probably no wiser, but still in there swinging. I'd lost a few pounds with the Winter 5% Challenge, but choked towards the end for reasons not entirely clear to me. Honestly, I think I w... Read more
