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.


Our Cloven-Hooved Friends

Mark got a call this morning from a friend who had been hunting, and an hour later, we had a cooler full of bones. Ewwww.... But he cooked all day and now we have a freezer full of venison stock and wild boar stock, and tonight for dinner we had wine soup (with the venison stock), ribeyes, broccoli rabe, and risotto (with the boar stock). Well! And tomorrow night we're having pork chops (with wild boar demiglace), boulangerie potatoes and brussels sprouts with pancetta. Okay then!

When I married my husband, I got the best deal on the planet.
