Happy Father’s Day!

I hope it was as won­der­ful for y’all as it was for us.  While Dad­dy was tak­ing a nap, I did a lit­tle work on the site here, con­tin­u­ing the process of migrat­ing things from the old for­mat into Word­Press. It’s going to take more time, but even­tu­al­ly, all the pages will be uni­form. Real­ly! If […]

The Great Outdoors

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you enjoyed the great out­doors?” Does a sub­ur­ban pool count? Because I was in one today, play­ing with my niece and nephews, chat­ting with my broth­er and sis­ter-in-law and par­ents. It was a love­ly part of our Father’s Day week­end cel­e­bra­tion. It has been a few years since […]

Earth Day

Plinky asked, “Do you cel­e­brate Earth Day?” Not real­ly. I do my best to be envi­ron­men­tal­ly respon­si­ble every day, instead of sav­ing it for one day of the year. I recy­cle, use mass tran­sit, buy local­ly pro­duced food as much as pos­si­ble, and take oth­er steps so that I real­ly have a very small car­bon footprint […]

Gratitude 7 April 2012

1) Kids young enough to hunt East­er eggs as many times as they can per­suade some­body to hide them. 2) A nephew will­ing to hide said eggs ’til the younger kids drop. 3) The lit­tlest nephew, too young to under­stand the whole busi­ness of hid­ing and find­ing eggs, but hap­py to run about after the oth­er kids

Explosions Over, Yay

I don’t like loud hol­i­days. I get ner­vous about all those explo­sions. There were ran­dom fire­works going off dur­ing the day today, too. At least they fin­ished ear­li­er last night than they do on New Year’s Eve! My baby girl is hav­ing a bad flare :-( She was going to a Braves game with friends […]

Water from Stone?

Water From Rock, Eas­i­er Than Blood From Stone Gyp­sum, a rocky min­er­al is abun­dant in desert regions where fresh water is usu­al­ly in very short sup­ply but oil and gas fields are com­mon. Writ­ing in Inter­na­tion­al Jour­nal of Glob­al Envi­ron­men­tal Issues, Peter van der Gaag of the Hol­land Inno­va­tion Team, in Rot­ter­dam, The Nether­lands, has hit […]

All-Snakes Day?

Is any­body cel­e­brat­ing that this year? I’m out of touch with the pagan crowd any more. I think the St. Patrick­’s Day parade here in Atlanta was can­celed because of the tor­na­do Sat­ur­day. I was at home all day, so I did­n’t both­er wear­ing green or even think­ing about it. One of the “dai­ly quote” […]
