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.


I don't know what XLR inputs are, but...

This is an example of why I peruse Gizmodo fairly regularly (from this post)

I hadn't realized how many people still used XLR microphone inputs until I made an offhanded comment to a musician friend earlier. I have been suitably informed: Take the number of people you think might still use XLR inputs, add in the number of musicians you know personally, then multiply that by every star in the universe. The end product will not be the number of XLR users exist, but a measurement, in pounds, of how full of shit you are.

Well, that and all the cool stuff that I'll never buy but like looking at.
