“And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” – Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
I am, by both propensity and profession, a writer.
D*mn, it felt good to type that … and for that, I owe thanks to Morgan Freeman. (Yes, the actor.) I thank him for reminding me that bad, good or indifferent, that is what I a...
So far, so good

Authors: NVCrazy ... I haven't even blogged yet and this year is two weeks old!
It's been a busy time. Things have gotten off to a good start. In fact, here I am at my scrapbooking weekend. Needing to go and get coffee, but otherwise GREAT! Fun times, great folks and laughing, laughing, laughing. There can never be too much of that.
So, here's to a...
Out with the Old

Authors: NVIt's too easy to take potshots at 2011. It is a year that, while not my worst, and while considerably good by the standards of the less fortunate, will go down as infinitely less than a stellar one.

Authors: NVIt was a busy and productive weekend.
Saturday was sunny and created the deception of warmth. While the temp supposedly reached 45, with the associated wind, the wind chill factor made it feel like 39!
If you’re me, that’s at least 15 degrees below “passable” work outside temps!
Yesterday was infinitely better. While there wasn’t much sun,...
Albert, Androids and Apple

Authors: NVIt's been an interesting few days. First, after early-morning rumblings to the contrary, we learned that Albert Pujols was leaving the Cardinals.
It sucks, but it is what it is. The Cardinals will be fine. Really.
Then, I started getting emails about stuff I downloaded from Apple iTunes. Wait. WHAT?! (I hadn't purchased anything since...
A Month of Mourning

Authors: NVIt's hard to turn down a "command" performance. So, OK, Karen Anne, I'm speaking!

Authors: NVIt's been two weeks. Two weeks.
I've been silent but I haven't really had much to say. Ozzie's absence has been felt acutely. Each day I seem to find myself expecting to see him turn the corner between rooms. Sometimes, I swear I hear him as I enter the house. It's going to take a lot of getting used to, this post-Ozzie world.

Authors: NVIt’s a sad state of affairs when you can’t leave something in your front yard without someone having the gonads to come onto your property and take it. But, that’s what happened last Saturday.
You may recall that I recently sealed the driveway again (watch for some product reviews to come). When I finished, I took my two sawhorses...
