My last day of Unemployment...
Posted February 23, 2009

So I get to start a new job where I get to do all kinds of web geek stuff - my kind of fun.  You know what they say - "Do something you love and you'll never work another day in your life."  Yep.   So, on my last day of being nemployed, I put together an organizer for my belly rings.  It's amazing how many I've collected since I took the dare and got it done 6 months ago.  (I just changed it for the first time days ago)...

The Grammys - Viva La Vida
Posted February 10, 2009

It's been more than 20 years since I gave a rat's posterior about the Grammys or any awards....but then again I had an unusual year and got back into listening to music - and found there is good music still out there even for old people like me.  I was driving home from a craft class one night and heard this most unusual song come on...and I was hooked...

Posted December 14, 2008

Whole Lotta Redneck Fun
Posted October 23, 2008

Every year at the Altamont Raceway Park, the season culminates with the Pumpkin Smash event.  Fans arrive to the track and there are pumpkins all over it.  What for, you ask?  So that way the fans can come down and smash them onto the track - and then a truck will come by with soapy water and then what--there's a race!  Or is it a demolition derby?  Or both?

Every Home Should Have a Bottle of This
Posted August 16, 2008

I'm one of those who loves hot sauce so much, I am usually 'packing Tabasco sauce' in my purse.  Once at the County Fair, I visited The Hot Sauce Guy and he gave me the hottest stuff he had and it didn' t make me run laps around the hall or anything.

Where has the Summer Gone?
Posted July 31, 2008

I can't believe it is July 31st.  What HAPPENED?  It seems like it was just Spring.   I had a promising summer building (that crashed and burned with the loss of my job and the breakup of what I thought was a relationship with a lot of hope in it).  Now I'm finding myself going into August and what happened?
