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.



But seriously, no matter what your connections are, consider this fundraiser:

Project Valour IT

I can't even imagine being unable to type. I make my living typing--arranging all those stupid 1s and 0s so that Company X can talk to Company Y. And any of my family would quickly tell you I'm much more likely to answer an email than my cell phone. I don't even have a land line....

For Grandfather Deam, Uncle Sonny and Mr. Manning, GO ARMY!

Donate here:

via the Black Five link above or through the (slightly-malformed) button on the right sidebar of my home page labeled "Valour IT Army Team".


W00t!! The Army Team contribution has increased by $1000 since I started composing this post!

Update 2:
The Army Team met (and exceeded!) its goal. Thank you everybody!!
