So, I realize I have neglected posting about the chickens. We added a third to the flock. We started off with D'Brickashaw and Tony Romo. They did not get along with the new girl, and Romo was especially mean, so eventually we named her Jessica Simpson. And for a while, all… Read full post »
Not that I'm excited about that. I just found out I'm pregnant, and it completely freaks me out to read about what happened to Samantha Burton. All she wanted was a second opinion, and her doctor called state authorities.
We've got an ill relative. A seriously ill one. Keep us in your thoughts and in the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy this new toy I found. I've used photobucket for years for random things when I first needed an image hoster. I wandered back and found they'd added some bells… Read full post »
Surely you didn't think I was out of leftovers?
Sunny Side Up Crabwiches for Two
Slice one purple onion and toss it into a frying pan with melted butter. Let them caramelize a little bit, then add about a cup of crab meat to the pan. Saute a minute longer, then remove… Read full post »
If you're like I am, you watch all the ads for Black Friday sales and wonder what is wrong with the people they're aimed at. And after you've thoroughly stuffed yourself on Thursday, you go to bed and blissfully sleep through all those alarms you were supposed to set, and you're… Read full post »
I saw this story on Digg today:
"A mother whose daughter was murdered is suing American Life Assurance of Columbus (AFLAC) because it has refused to pay the death benefit on life insurance the daughter applied for shortly before her death."
I don't know how often AFLAC ref… Read full post »
Is at my house. It's the one with the lovely, lovely fresh laid
eggs. People are always saying how great fresh eggs are, so Mr.
Strangely and I tried to conduct an experiment.
As you can see, the eggs we get are varied in size. Most are not as large as a… Read full post »
It's not anywhere you'd expect. For the last two years though, we've made a pilgrimage to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, for the annual donor breakfast. They open the aquarium two hours early and you get all the docents and tanks to yourselves, to enjoy with coffee, fruit and a surprisingly good… Read full post »
Last year I witnessed the birth of a wonderful use for the creative force of the internet. During the presidential election, a page called Design for Obama emerged. You could participate as a designer or a user. Designers uploaded poster after poster for the Obama campaign, then, they and the users… Read full post »
When chickens purr.
It's hard to hear, but she's just purring her little head off. It's a partly beautiful day today. Mostly sunny with some light rain. And the chickens are sitting on the back porch, purring.
Weirdly, Open Salon will not let me post their banner... but if you are a member of Kiva, this guy has 17 hours to get $325.

It has been a long time, garden blog, hasn't it? It's my fault, really. It was just kind of painful to think about gardening, without thinking of all that I had lost. My giant pine cross section and the neat old tractor couldn't come with when we moved, so they were… Read full post »

This is not my first post on 9/11. Hopefully, it won't be my last post either. It is a choice to give up on the world and the people in it. I have never understood the rationale that makes some throw up their hands and quit trying. So, instead of writing… Read full post »
I spent the weekend with my sister. We went to all those spots you need an excuse to see when you live here on the bay peninsula. We went to an art fair in San Jose and to Golden Gate Park. We had tea in the garden there and saw geese… Read full post »
Today, as I was nonchalantly wandering the interwebs, I happened
to click on a link to a Youtube video. And instead of going to the
video, I was confronted with a weird, red page.
If you're having a hard time making that out, it says:
We have received copyright complaint(s) regarding material… Read full post »
On Thursday, the Board of Supervisors in Santa Clara County met,
and national health care reform was on the agenda. Loins were
girded. Songs were composed. We even brought notes that said "Talk,
don't Shout", so we could confront any angry people who might have
And there we… Read full post »
Our first Lebowskifest was a blast. I had a hard time trying to come up with a costume, and so I popped the movie in on Friday to try to find some last minute inspiration.
And I did.
I wasn't brave enough to wear Maude's outfit, but this awesome girl was! Here she… Read full post »
Are they trying to make Texas look enlightened? I appreciate the effort y'all, but damn.
I just want to paint you a picture. During the election this fall, proponents of Prop 8 said it was about freedom. They talked about their right to tell their children that gay people were evil… Read full post »

I was shocked by the memories I had, reading about Apache Savage's eviction yesterday. My husband and I moved to California a few years ago when he lost his job in Dallas. I had just graduated from college, and we set out for San Francisco, where an empty house awaited us.… Read full post »
This weekend, I celebrated the birth of our nation by writing a pithy sign and thrusting it into traffic. Unfortunately, my camera has died. I believe it's the motor. It can only reflect on the pictures I've taken over the past weeks. So I cannot share any pictures from the rally,… Read full post »
O Canadians, in honor of Canada Day, my husband and I enjoyed
some of your fine culture.
Don't take my word for it. I even found you a completely authentic and unbiased review.
I know I must not be a proper hippie, because I get too excited about the new smokehouse addition to Whole Food's butcher shop. Yes. I know my friends who eschew even leather shoes would be horrified, but I can't help myself. They have a triangle to ring when they set… Read full post »
