(No) Discovery

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

I saw that the space shuttle Discovery just hooked up with the International Space Station today (oo-er!), and it was going to fly over my town tonight at 6:11pm.  (Go to this handy site and put in your state and town and it’ll tell you when they’ll be overhead and where to find them.)  So, […]

Second maple (Steve Holt!)

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

More maple goodness!  This weekend is the main opening weekend for the sugar shacks that serve pancakes, and we saw that one of our favorites from last year, Steve Holt’s Sugar Shack (Steve Holt!), was having portions of their opening day profits go to Habitat for Humanity, so off we went. It was only a […]

A thing that Kari and I started a couple of years ago was going to maple syrup “sugar shacks” where you can eat pancakes and smother them in freshy-fresh syrup, practically right out of the tree.  When we hit February, I went to the Massachusetts Maple Producers’ site which gave a list of all sugar […]

A photo I took of a soldier-type-person behind a fence on Beal Street in Memphis, TN. Since I restarted my site in September, I’ve been getting bunches of spambots attempting to post comments.  I don’t know why, when I’ve never had this problem in the eight years I’ve owned my site.  Oh wait, yes, I […]

See this truck?  Kari and I have seen others from the same company, here and there, for a couple of years.  We are astounded that they haven’t been tagged in the following fashion: That truck is totally begging for it. What I’m listening to:  The Dead Milkmen – Dean’s Dream

Magpie

This past Friday was my mom’s birthday.  Hooray!  On Saturday, during the all-day-freezing-rain-a-thon, we took her out to a restaurant in Greenfield she’s wanted to go to for a while, called Magpie, a fancy pizza place.  The pizza was very good. But, hoo boy, not as good as the desserts.  Also, our waitress overheard us […]

Concert!

Last night we went out and saw Neko Case at the Calvin Theatre with Alana and Joey.  What a good show.  I was really impressed with the opening band, Lost In The Trees.  Their music just blew me away.  I hadn’t heard of them before we got the tickets to the show, so I looked […]
