Blonde Moments on Fox News
Posted on December 12, 2013
Have you ever noticed how all of the women news anchors on Fox News are blonde? I have nothing against blonde people, in fact, I myself was born with blonde hair (which has naturally darkened over the years). However, last time I checked, being blonde was …
Tea, Wine and Whisky - Oh My!
Posted on December 08, 2013
So it’s been well over a month since my last blog post. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), I’ve been extremely busy with web design work and such. By the end of the day, I most definitely need to step away from the computer. I feel burned out.
Me and Memes
Posted on October 27, 2013
I spend a great deal of time on Facebook and other social media platforms. It's kind of my job to be there, so I run across a lot of memes during the day. Some of them are funny, but others are downright silly when you start to think about it.
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Murder on Muckshaw: The Death of My Honeybees
Posted on August 09, 2013
Over the last few days I’ve had this sneaking suspicion that something was wrong with my new honeybee colony. I go out almost every day to check on my bees with just a quick visual inspection of the hive entrance to see who is coming and going. Things were…
Redwing Blackbirds Don't Like Me
Posted on July 30, 2013
The redwing blackbirds that have taken up residence along the banks of the ditch that runs alongside Muckshaw just south of my house do not like me. I know this because they are constantly chirping and harassing me as I quietly pass by their reed domiciles…
Relieve the Stress
Posted on July 18, 2013
It’s amazing how much stress I can feel after I wake up in the morning after a restful night. One of the first things I do is grab my phone or tablet and check my email. Consistently, there are several messages waiting for me across a handful of email acco…
Yard Sale Hints and Tips
Posted on July 07, 2013
My mother and I go to a lot of yard sales during the summer months. Whether you call them yard sales or garage sales or even rummage sales, they're all about the same. We pick one day a week and cruise around surrounding communities looking for unique trea…
