Non-conformist Introvert

  This is so much on my mind right now. As some know, I was laid off from my job back in March. I took it pretty well, this being the third time now I’ve been through this. I knew the struggle to find a new job awaited me, but deep down inside somewhere I … Continue reading Non-conformist Introvert

Flotsam

So... Long time, no see! Between bad weather (being snowed in with no power for 2 days in January) and just general life stuff, the blog has once again taken a back seat to... well, everything. In an effort to rectify that (at least to a small extent) I thought I'd post a snippet of … Continue reading Flotsam

I'm trying to reclaim my back yard from the blackberry brambles this year, and have finally resorted to chemical warfare. I hate using herbicides, but it's out of control. There's a play structure … Continue reading Summertime, and the Livin’ Ain’t Easy

New Locations Now Open

With all the talk of Twitter moving to an algorithmic system that promotes "popular" posts (read: things that make the company more money) I'm preparing to either abandon it, or use it less. In any event, I've started a Tumblog which can be found here. Not much there yet since I just started it today. … Continue reading New Locations Now Open
