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.

 

Factories are Cool

The Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing at Stanford has a an interesting site with videos of various manufacturing processes, billed as "How Everyday Things are Made". While the show from Harley Davidson, for example, won't help you rebuild your own bike engine, it is kind of neat to see an overview of the process. And sometime when I'm not at work ;-) I'm going to watch the one about glass, having not yet had the chance to tour a real glass factory. (It's on the list.)
