What are we forgetting...?

What are we forgetting...? So many things, vaguely remembered, misremembered, forgotten mostly... Things that shaped who we have become today, that made our parents who they are and were... Events that were hard-learned lessons... What events of the 20th Century are the most important to remember,... Sign in to see full entry.

The joy of patterns

9 5 4 5 9 That's the last digit of this morning's click numbers. A small part of me lives for the rare days those digits are all the same. I think it has happened twice since I have been here. And how about when the accounting at the end of the month ends up a whole dollar amount? With a 0 at the... Sign in to see full entry.

game shows, reality shows

I've been watching back-to-back episodes of one of my favorites, THE AMAZING RACE, which I wrote about on my travel-blogue. Among game shows, I like the ones I can play along with like JEOPARDY, and WHEEL OF FORTUNE, though I no longer watch them at home as I don't invest in commecial television....

Penny games

I got over the dissection of posting and pennies pretty much after the first months of blogiting, but some things still mystify me or at least get my attention. My writing brings in usually a few dollars per month, and by 'few' I mean less than $5 worth. I consider a $5 month pretty good. Summer has... Sign in to see full entry.

The naming of things...

Over the years, it has amused me to name this and that, particularly household appliances, tools, and random stuff: Cyndi Loppers in the garden, Vlad the Inhaler in the medicine cabinet, and now we have the tag that hangs in the car on those days I need the special parking space near the door: Jean...

Making your own

Made corned beef hash this morning from baked potatoes and canned corned beef. I thought the canned corned beef hash had too much potato, and the corned beef in it looked a lot like dog food. I figured I could do better with better corned beef. As it happens, it is the potatoes that make a... Sign in to see full entry.

You only have to say the word, and my 17-mo granddaughter just grins and giggles--every single time, even when in a moment of glum or a pout. When I was a kid, I remember going into hysterics along with my sister over the word, bosom. It wasn't just that it was a word referring to a slightly naughty... Sign in to see full entry.

One space or two?

This came up on Facebook this morning: A study that shows that the double-space between the period that ends a sentence and the capital letter that starts the next actually serves a valid purpose for the ease and fluency of reading. It is not just that many of us were raised to consider... Sign in to see full entry.
