Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

 

Cardoons

We had cardoons for dinner (well, with pasta) tonight. They're (it's?) really pretty good. They look like giant celery (and I do mean giant--like 18" stalks) and you have to cook them forever, but they're really light and clean-tasting.

On another positive note, I haven't heard the opossum lately. I am pretty sure that the noise in the attic was in fact a fat clumsy opossum, because I saw it about a week ago. It was trying to climb down a tree. It was obviously fat, and it confirmed itself clumsy when it fell off a branch about half-way down the tree. With any luck, it couldn't figure out how to get back up the tree and back into the attic.

I'm slowly getting my home computer life transferred over from poor Larry to a pc. I admit that the os is more comfortable for me, but it's a pain having to hunt down new programs for all the little things that I want to do.

Had a scare about GMP this afternoon, but the latest news is that she's okay. I really hope so. I'm not quite ready to let go of another grandparent.
