X is for Xbox

Through a stroke of luck I recently won an Xbox 360 with Kinect for my family. We’ve owned a Wii for several years, and been very happy with it, but there always seemed to be certain games that wouldn’t come out for the Wii, and were only available on the XBox or PlayStation3.  Though I […]

V is for Verizon

I’ve spoken here about how much I love living in the country. I get to see deer and other wildlife on a regular basis, there isn’t much traffic near my house, and while there are several other homes on the farm, we all have enough room of our own that we’re not on top of […]

U is for Ukulele

Just before Christmas my wife bought me a ukulele. Someone local listed it for sale on a Facebook group, and because I’d always wanted one, my wife bought it for me. When be bought it the ukulele looked like brand new, and still does today, because though I really wanted it, I just haven’t taken […]

R is for Recipes

One of my most common type of posts are my recipe posts. There are two main reasons for this. First, I like to cook, and I love recipes. I used to buy a lot of cookbooks, and still probably buy more than I need, but thanks to the Internet almost any recipe I might want […]

P is for Pictures/Photos (Late Wordless Wednesday)

A few of my personal favorite photos from my Flickr stream. I should probably fix the pink eye, but I’ve always loved her expression in this photo. And though he’s asleep, I really like this picture of my son, Steven Paul Lovely sunset on the farm.  And a picture I probably should be embarrassed about, […]

O is for OUT! with salt!

Ok, I’m stretching to make this fit with O, but it is something I’ve been wanted to post about, and there are lots of ideas for the letter S, so I decided to squeeze it in here. Way back over Christmas break, I had a problem with my foot and wound up at the local […]

M is for Mornings

I used to think of myself as a night owl. In the early days of the Internet, I would be on the old GEnie network until all hours of the night and into the wee hours of the morning.  Over time, that has changed, and though I like a cup of coffee to help kickstart […]

L is for Lucky

I’m lucky to have a wonderful wife, and two children, and all of us are healthy. I’m lucky to have a job, which helps keeps a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, and pays all the other bills to keep us living in our modern lifestyle. I’m lucky to live here on the […]
