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.


Public Service Announcement

Hi Mom,

I know you're stuck in Florida with the endless campaigning, and you don't have cable, so you're stuck with network news, but you DO have the internet, and that makes all the difference. Here is a list of some of my favorite places to go to learn more about what's REALLY going on these days. If you do a bit of surfing, I think you'll find reasons to be more optimistic about Iraq and Afghanistan, more pessimistic about the likelihood that Mr. Kerry would be a positive force in the oval office, and much more skeptical of the "regular" news sources.


Every Day:

Less Frequently but only because I'm lazy:

  • Chrenkoff is best known for his Good news from ... posts, which may take a few sittings to get through, but even if you just scan them, you'll realize how much is happening that you're not hearing about through "normal" channels.
