Doctor Who, You Say? I’ll Say!

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 13:40:51 +0000

Back in 2013, before Peter Capaldi was announced as the 12th doctor, I took a stab and making my own potential picks for the role of the Doctor. Capaldi ended up doing a great job, but recently announced that he is leaving the role after the 2017 season.

So the hunt begins for a new Doctor. I stand by much of my original list, but I’ll make some minor changes now that we are four years on.

First, I’ll remove Joseph Morgan from my list. I also need to remove Charles Dance since he’s on “Game of Thrones,” unless the elder Lannister gets killed off in order to allow him to take on the role of the Doctor. I would still leave Ben Barnes … continue on, dear reader!




My Books of 2016 List

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:26:31 +0000

I posted the books I read on another site and completely forgot to post them over here for posterity!!

Without further ado, here is the 2016 list (which does not reflect the various AWFUL free Kindle books I downloaded that ended up being complete and utter nonsense that should never have been self-published in the first place and for shame on those “authors” for thinking people wanted to read their poorly conceived creative writing project):

1. As You Wish by Cary Elwes
2. The Martian by Andy Weir
3. Last Light by Terri Blackstock
4. The Green Ember by S.D. Smith
5. The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
6. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
7. 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in continue on, dear reader!




With a Lot of Hard Work, Dobby Became An Awesome Dog

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 17:53:27 +0000

(image) When we adopted Dobby the Dog two years ago, we realized quickly that he does not like strangers coming in the house. This was a good thing from a home protection point of view, but not so good when we were having guests come over to hang out. We’d have to put him in another room and wait for everyone to arrive so he wouldn’t charge the door and growl/bark at our guests. Once everyone arrived we’d take him out and he’d be fine because he was only aggressive with people actually coming in the door, not those who were already inside. Wacky dog.

Two weekends ago we had people over for our neighborhood’s dinner club. I opted not to put Dobby in a separate … continue on, dear reader!




The 2016 White Elephant Menu

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 14:19:11 +0000

For the past several years I’ve been posting our menu for the annual White Elephant party that we host at Christmastime. I didn’t post a recipe list in 2016, but here is the 2016 blog post! This year most of the things we served we brand new, with only a few repeats.

Each year we do two kinds of meatballs. This year we made two Asian inspired recipes. We had an “orange chicken” meatball – meaning it had the flavors that orange chicken from a Chinese restaurant would have, but made with meatballs instead of chicken. We also had Spicy Korean-style Gochujang meatballs – which were a huge hit. That crockpot was empty by the end of the night. I had made those meatballs two … continue on, dear reader!




An Overdue, and Sad Post

Chilly the Dog
In October I didn’t get a chance to post about this, but we had to put down one of our dogs, Chilly. He was a sweet, senior Australian Shepherd that we adopted just three short years ago. I knew the minute I saw Chilly’s picture on the rescue group’s website that I had to have him. We had adopted him as an older dog in 2013 and gave him to the kids as a Christmas present. Initially told he was about five years old, within a year we knew he was very much older – probably 9-10 years old, maybe even older. In 2015 he began aging rapidly – eyes turning milky, difficulty taking the stairs. But he was just as sweet … continue on, dear reader!




It’s That Time of Year Again

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 02:51:19 +0000

It’s officially December, which means I have permission to go nuts on Christmas stuff. The outside of the house is already decorated – Denis and I spent most of Thanksgiving weekend putting everything up, including some new things that I made this year. We had a lot of issues of things being broken when we brought it out of storage. Most of our net lights were broken, one of my metal trees wouldn’t turn on, and we had a few strings of lights that were done for. Oh, and for some reason three of our pre-lit wreaths that we put in the windows didn’t light up. Very strange. Unfortunately, we didn’t discover they were not lighting up until AFTER we had installed them on the … continue on, dear reader!
