TLC channel, still learning?

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments

I am tired of What Not to Wear, and A Baby Story and Miami Ink and LA Ink and all these other things I see listed on The Learning Channel. I forgot Ten Years Younger. Is the house flipping on TLC? I just don’t think these are “learning” shows; yes, I could see a few […]

Raking in Northern Indiana

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments

The snow is gone, probably because the temperature has climbed through the night and day to 57? and is supposed to hit 60K. Everything is wet and if you were using the moss on the north side of the tree for guidance out of this land hereabouts, you’re direction is would be well-marked. The sun […]

Technology and me

March 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

I like having this Internet connection; I like having a word processing program that just lets me go back and delete without an eraser; I like having a printer, no having to painstakingly type each word and use thin paper so the erasures would not show so much. I love this stuff – cable TV […]

Oh . . . I’m up, but barely

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments

Spring Break is over and I an sitting Indian fashion on the end of the sofa, about 45 minutes away from taking Alison to the hospital and getting kids to school – except one. The middle one, the one who is autistic, developed a sore throat and fever on Saturday and got antibiotics at the […]

Aha . . . I cannot upload photos

March 30th, 2008 · No Comments

I was going to post a picture of the walnut tree in my mother’s yard that is leaning quite a bit following a microburst storm (we think) two years ago. It is impressive, but I think there may be a glitch in the new WordPress upgrade because it says my pictured failed the upload criteria. […]

Whoa . . . WordPress upgrade

March 30th, 2008 · No Comments

I decided not to put up with days of logging into WordPress only see “Please Update staring at me. I have done that before; it gets annoying. So right away, I said, fine, just automatically upgrade me. And the little tiny, tiny elves in my computer ran around and did it – really quickly. Then […]

oh, gee

March 29th, 2008 · No Comments

I listened to an interview this morning where someone made the point about political correctness having the effect of putting the importance on what people feel they should say think as opposed as to what they really do think. My mind works in weird ways. As I was about to move away from the page, […]

Mostly sunny . . . high of 44

March 29th, 2008 · No Comments

Weather.com is saying we should have sun today, at least mostly sun. Well, good, I hope so; I really do. I have seen this before, blue happy skies in the early morning and then clouds rolling in, first a few and then a lot. I want to believe there will be sun (mostly sun) all […]

Has Lipton given up on peach tea?

March 28th, 2008 · No Comments

I have, during these months of winter, been able to pick-up a 12 pack of Lipton’s Diet Green Tea, Peach flavor. Now, I haven’t done it often, but when I have, there has been a pack for me. Not now. Knowing I would be wanting a lot of iced tea soon, I checked out the […]

Knut

March 28th, 2008 · No Comments

I feel sorry for the cute little pseudo-orphaned polar bear cub at the German zoo who was brought to – uh, let’s call it – “really bigness” by the people. Knut is the bear whose picture has been on the Internet news a lot lately – you know the one, the picture where it seems […]
