A train of thought

February 27th, 2014 · 2 Comments

This morning I went looking for a song; I didn’t know the name, but I knew two parts of the lyrics: Frank jumped in and bit my leg and But, she’s cherry. Turns out the song is Classified by C.W. McCall and I managed to find a YouTube version of it. Now while I was […]

Things I pass by

February 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Stuff is fairly chockablock here at The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse and I’m thinking about documenting some of it so that maybe I will see it and not just pass my eyes over it. I don’t know where it will wind up when I am gone, but for now, I’ll let these iphone photos […]

Freezing again

February 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Just got word of a 2-hour delay for today because of winter weather – ice, snow and wind chill – so that will throw a cog in the make-up snow day scheduling. Oh, well, it gives me an extra two hours before I have to “shoot the slalom run” on the downhill street that empties […]

Let me not spill anything

February 26th, 2014 · No Comments

This is unusual for me; I am all ready to go to my doctor’s appointment and I have at least an hour before I need to leave. I am in my clothes and not looking for my keys. This feels so odd. Well, I am going to brush my teeth once more before I leave […]

An extra hour of school

February 25th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Because we have had so many snow days, schools are making up the time by adding a hour to each day. And because 2-hour delays kept affecting the same two periods, schedules have been revamped to make take that into account. It varies from day-to-day, according to Summer and I her recitation in the car […]

A very interesting article

February 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

I saw an internet sub-headline about a neuroscientist  who discovered he was had a psychopathic brain. It was a brief interview with  TV’s Dr. Gupta. My interest piqued, I looked for more information and found some HERE . I’d like to see a PET scan of my brain – of course, I’m more relaxed looking at […]

Hey gnomes, it’s going to get cold again

February 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

Well, I am upset, really. I looked at the weather website and saw an ad from NIPSCO (Northern Indiana Public Service Company). The little section for the ad was off the the right of all the main information section and I vaguely was aware that it said something about evaluating home power usage. Then as […]

Not a good sign

February 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

I sat here for a minute or so just staring at the blank for post title. Usually, I just type the first thing that comes into my head, which is more than likely evident. I just realized one could suppose either my head was empty or I was daydreaming. It was the first; I had […]

Kook in Kendallville

February 21st, 2014 · No Comments

My name is AmeliaJake and I’m a Kook – and proud of it. As a result of yesterday’s inadequate warm-up, I was left with 1-3+ inches of rutted ice on my driveway and sidewalk. I went out to buy more rock salt, but the shortage is real. So I told the third person I talked […]

Steady

It was 34 degrees this morning when I looked and 36 degrees now . . . and it was supposed to be 53. How can that be when I am simmering?
