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.


All kindsa good stuff

Things have been hopping lately! Let's see. In no particular order:

  • There have been big changes at work that, without going into detail, make my life SO much better

  • I have a commission (!) for some notecards, as a result of the Xmas cards I made last year

  • I'm working on a FUN COOL project at work

  • I'm learning about php and making progress on The BeadBase

  • I've installed genealogy software on my website and have my mom and Mark's mom interested in helping me do research and data entry

  • Mom and Dad are talking about moving to TX someday, which would be SO good

  • I've made contact with a man who served in WWII with my grandfather, and who has this to say:
    ...your grandfather, who indeed was a hero and an excellent officer and paratrooper....

  • The DanceDanceRevolution has landed in our living room, providing hours of hilarity

and probably five or ten other events of more or less significance that I'm just not remembering at the moment.

All is well. Life is good. The adventure continues....
