What are gas prices doing in your neighborhood?

Lowest around here is $1.68 (rounding up that final tricksy.9) Charlie saw $1.65 before leaving Colorado last week. How low will it go, before bouncing this time? These prices are about a third what they were last summer out here. It may not be another check in the mail, but it isn't bad as economic... Sign in to see full entry.

If you had a soundtrack behind your life...

What would you include in it? Mine would have some Beethoven in it, and Mozart, and some Tchaikovski, no doubt, and some Simon and Garfunkle, Peter Paul and Mary, and a certain instance of my life recalled in Sunday Will Never Be The Same! Cat Stevens, too-- Wild World closed the relationship that... Sign in to see full entry.

"I saw something awful in the woodshed...!"

Actually, it wasn't the woodshed, it was on TV but it was awful. Not awesome, just awful. Real Housewives of... in this case, Atlanta. These women are some of the awfullest people I have ever seen! And since I have watched some 'reality shows' I do know about how awful people can come across. But... Sign in to see full entry.

After reading your most recent post, I knew what to give you.

LONG ISLAND SUMMERS I’d go back for just a moment, perhaps as long as one day and a night, enough, I think, to relish what I loved about Long Island summers: Scents of ragweed, seared grasses, almost-too-sweet roses in the heavy summer air… Glittering waters, hot, hot sand and tiny shells hiding in...

Like a birthday present...

For 8 years, GW Bush has been the face of America. He has been the representative of the American spirit, mentality, and value-system. More or less half of America said this should be so, that he was the face they wanted to present to the world. That he represents what we are. Now it will be Barack... Sign in to see full entry.

I saw a turduckhen!

It was there in the grocery store freezer, a lump in plastic that claimed to be a boneless chicken stuffed into a boneless duck stuffed into a partially boneless turkey... with stuffing. For years, choosing a nice all-natural turkey, I have pondered on what would an unnatural turkey be, and where... Sign in to see full entry.

Just a bit of history to savor the moment

For some reason, I am thinking of Elizabeth Tudor's words, when they came to her with the news that Mary had died, and that she was now Queen of England. She, who had been legitimate heir to Henry VIII for a few years, then with her mother's fall was declared bastard; who had survived her sister... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm reminded of a story about plumbing and water...

BC-A left a comment over in my Show blog today that brought this to the surface. The grandfather of my best friend in high school was dismantling a laundry sink in the basement. He very, very carefully removed the sections of pipe beneath it, draining them into a bucket between his knees where he... Sign in to see full entry.
