Meatless Monday

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 12:23:16 +0000

Photo and recipe from Ambitious Kitchen I was talking to our next door neighbor the other day, and the conversation turned to Thanksgiving. These neighbors are vegetarian, but their family that will be in town visiting are not, so I asked what she is planning to make. She said they would make a turkey for Continue reading →

Lazy Sunday

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 22:48:51 +0000

Here’s a picture of a redwood tree in our neighborhood, for Nance, who says they are one of her favorite trees. They are beautiful, though of course these are not the Giant Redwoods that you can see a couple of hours from here. They look a lot like pine trees, but so much prettier. Today Continue reading →

Scenic Saturday

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 00:38:59 +0000

Mulder and I have changed our morning walking route lately. At least for now, the sun is coming up early enough that we can go for an hour before I have to be at work. One of the many benefits of working from home is that I can walk in the door from my walk Continue reading →

Keeping Track of the Tax Plans

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:13:05 +0000

As you know, the House of Representatives passed a tax plan overhaul yesterday. I know that the Senate Plan will be different, and assuming they can get something passed, it will be some sort of reconciliation of the two. I thought it might be interesting (to me, if to no one else) to calculate how Continue reading →

Throwback Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 12:23:10 +0000

Aimee was my best friend in Fairbanks during the years we lived downtown. She lived kitty corner from us. I think she went to Montessori with me, actually, though I don’t remember for sure. She and I found each other on Facebook a couple of years ago, and she told me that when she first Continue reading →

My First Bike*

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 01:02:02 +0000

My first bike was a hand-me-down from my brother, Richard. It had training wheels at one time, but by the time I got it, those were long gone. The red building in the background is a church, and it was right next door to us. The dark haired girl in one of the pictures is Continue reading →

Mulder Monday

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 12:23:42 +0000

Hi Everyone, my name is Mulder! My Medium-Boss said I could be a guest blogger today. Fun! I’ve lived with my Big-Boss, Medium-Boss, and Little-Boss for almost 2 years now. It’s hard to believe, but some people say, “Time Flies”. I’m not sure what they mean. I love my bosses, and I love my life. Continue reading →

Sunday Funnies

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 00:26:58 +0000

This one made me laugh. It reminds me of when I’m frustrated with Maya because she goes through hair conditioner too fast or is late getting out the door in the morning, and she says something like, “Well, at least I’m not addicted to drugs or pregnant or anything.” Yes, at least. That’s setting a Continue reading →

Rethinking Pinot

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 03:59:58 +0000

Maya has a job working for one of her High School English teachers, at an annual event called ‘Pinot Days’. Most of the job is online, ticketing and calling clients and so on, and that goes on for a couple of months. Then, when the date of the actual event comes, she goes in to Continue reading →

Roasted Branzino

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 18:49:13 +0000

A few weeks ago, OK, maybe 6 weeks ago, I was lazily watching cooking shows on PBS, and a French chef who has restaurants in Las Vegas, Hubert Keller, was making a poached Branzino. It looked really good, though to be honest, I didn’t have the equipment to poach it, and thought I might prefer Continue reading →

Throwback Thursday

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 17:01:43 +0000

When my Dad died, we divided up the list of people to notify, and one of the people on my list was my Dad’s ex girlfriend, Kit. Dad and Kit dated for awhile in the early 60s, when he dropped out of college, and they moved to New York together. As Kit tells it, they Continue reading →

My Reading List

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 12:23:38 +0000

I have not been in the mood to read lately.  By lately, I mean, since my Dad died.  I just veg out in front of the TV. But I miss reading.  I miss getting sucked into a story, and now I have a couple of reasons to crack a book. First, Ted’s aunt and I Continue reading →

Everything I ever learned, I learned at Mr. Steak

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 12:23:12 +0000

Ted has been asking for that as a title for a post for years now, because all too often, when we’re having a conversation about anything at all, I will pop in with a story about my time at Mr. Steak. I worked there for 2 years, from 1982 – 1984. I think the first Continue reading →
