Robin Williams as the American flag

This is my kitchen-window celery growing.

Better than my last attempt, but not by much. I wonder what I need to do differently. Green onions are of course very renewable.

I need to make this sign for my car; heat wave is coming.

I'll never forget coming out of Whole Foods and finding an irate woman waiting for the police by my car, with my little terrier wagging her tail in cool comfort as she watched from inside.

We're going to see the puffins in July!

My BIL is a birder in Missouri. He and my sister are joining us on a trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. We will then drive an hour and take a tour boat out to islands where (they promise) the puffins will be. Has anyone here done this? I'm happy to go, but afraid I might be seasick. It's a small boat.

Can anyone identify this tool please?

I just found it on the street when walking the dog. 🙂

You plan for years, and then there's no crawfish.

This May we're having a big 90th birthday party in Louisiana and it was supposed to be a crawfish boil with all the sides. Time to make a Plan B!


Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry issued a disaster declaration Wednesday for the state’s critical crawfish industry, as extreme weather disrupted this year’s harvest and triggered a shortage of the tiny crustaceans.

Louisiana is the country’s top producer of crawfish – a staple in Gulf Coast cuisine such as crawfish étouffée, gumbos and po-boys. The brick-red creatures have been harvested commercially in Louisiana since the 1800s, and the industry brings in more than $300 million for the state’s economy each year.

Before and after pictures using Barkeepers Friend.

I bought a whole set of Franciscan Desert Rose dishes for $10 because they were marked and crazed. I tried bleach and baking soda with vinegar with no luck. I thought Barkeepers Friend would just be like Comet. What a surprise! (I don't sell it and I'm not affiliated with it in any way.) It's not perfect, but now they're usable.
