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.


What do Scrapbooking and Bacon have in Common?

Scene from our common weekend pub stop:

Mark, reading Cook's Illustrated: "Bacon is now a 1.4 billion dollar industry." (or whatever number--I don't actually remember)
Later on, Darcy, reading Family History: "Gee, scrapbooking is a 1.2 billion dollar industry now."
Mark: "Almost as big as bacon."

Well, it struck me as quite clever and amusing at the time. I find myself mentally adding the comment "almost as big as bacon" to the end of underwhelming statements.
