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.


Pig Stock Take 2

Mark is making stock again, this time from the bonz of nearly an entire wild pig. That makes a lot of stock.... He started it late yesterday, simmered all night, and now he's skimming and straining. We put it in 14oz tuppers and freeze them--that makes it easy to measure when you want to use it (1 tupper = 1 can of broth from the store, in case you're as kitchen-knowledge-challenged as I am). So the house has smelled heartily meaty for two days and soon we'll be restocked with stock, which means all kinds of yummy treats will be forthcoming as he figures out what to do with it all. Oh, it's just SO hard to live with a culinary genius :-)
