Shoes of Middle School

Amy Karol has a great blog with wonderful photography.  She also wrote a great little sewing bo0k which I love (Bend the Rules Sewing.)   Today’s post Shoes (1983-1986) resonated and is cute and funny.  She is right when she says “Middle school was only 3 years, but it seems the longest 3 years ever.”   I […]

Archive-Along

My friend Rachel  and her friend Diane are organizing an “Archive-Along.”  Since I JUST started this blog, I don’t have much in the way of archiving but no better time than the present to start good archiving habits, right?  I haven’t figured out how to add graphics to this sidebar yet.

Another Good Blog

I really like the Web site “Leters of Note.”  They post images and transctiptions of really interesting, important or odd correspondence.  This post features a journal written by the wife of Aldous Huxley about his last few days.  It’s fascinating.

I guess in my real life I manage to avoid people who are […]

I Should at Least be Losing Weight

How can one person produce so much yuck?

Why I Foster Dogs

This rescuer appears to be based in L.A. His videos are powerful and stunning and perhaps the best explanation of why I foster dogs.  Check it out: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LqSHfkLvHk I’ve been a part of stories like this since I started taking in foster dogs in 2001. Since then I’ve been a temporary home for more than […]

All About Aliases

One of the biggest hindrances to my finally launching a blog has been trying to decide what to call it.  I get name paralysis on the best of days (my dog Major went two months without a name) but trying to decide on a name for something intended to be relatively permanent is tough. Especially since […]
