Here’s a huge upside to having a public blog - or to the internet in general, for that matter: You find people with whom you might otherwise never have connected and who turn out to be smart, funny, loving, thoughtful, kind, and (insert well-deserved superlative of choice here). They enrich your life with their presence […]

Today is my brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mark!! I wish I could see you!!!
That is the main reason I’ve been so frustrated with the weather this weekend. Not that I would have loved it anyway, since I make no secret of the fact that I am so not a snowbunny! But it was one of […]

Dear WeatherGods:
This was what I saw out my back door at 8:00 AM today:

I feel the need to express something to you, dear WeatherGods.
ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Gaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not a SnowBunny
Here is where I’m wishing I lived this morning. How could anyone have the muddy taupes living in a hobbit house??
And I’d like the […]

Dear Universe,
Hi. How ya doin’? In case I haven’t mentioned it lately, you’re looking great. Those stars a couple of nights ago? Fantastic! You rock!
Anyway, listen…I don’t want to take up too much of your time because I know you’re super-busy and all, but if it’s not too much trouble I’d like to run a […]

Dear Drivers in the Fleming and Mason County areas of Kentucky,
Please allow me to don my Ms. Science Person hat for a moment and share some information with you, because I believe you may have forgotten some important facts.

Yesterday I went to lunch at my favorite local-ish Chinese restaurant, The Golden Dragon. As I was eating, I had a thought that so made me wish I had a camera with me, but naturally this was one of the few times I hadn’t tucked my small camera into my purse. Isn’t that always the […]
