I had not heard of this HBO presentation until my grandson came around an aisle at Family Video with in in his hand. I did not know it was a series; I thought it was a movie. I nodded knowingly when he looked at me as if I should be aware of it and talked […]

Weather again

January 11th, 2018 · No Comments

Today the high is to be 57 degrees and tomorrow it will be 21?, maybe with snow. Yesterday, as it was warming, it was treacherous outside, with melting frozen slush ruts and perfectly flat black ice. So I went to bed planning on shoving the slush off the driveway and sidewalk after it had warmed […]

If I may venture a weather comment…

January 4th, 2018 · No Comments

Well, we do not have a blizzard situation, but we have more snow than we had two days ago when I jested about being jinxed with snow. Is this what Christmas Elves do when the season is over – go around peeking in people’s minds and blogs for fears and/or worries and then venting the […]

I clicked on a link to decorative items and took a close look at TWO wine glasses . The description of the glasses designed by Steven Weinberg reads: Make your dining experience a memorable one with this set of two modern and sophisticated white wine glasses.

The plunge

December 26th, 2017 · No Comments

September was warm and so was October; November flirted with snow and the next week it was pushing 65 degrees. But now, oh now, we have fallen – not eased down a slope – but fallen off the cliff of temperature doom. Technically, the temperature is above zero, but the windchill is -8 . . […]
