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.

 

Best Music Idea Ever

Run, do not walk, to pandora.com. The concept is simple and BRILLIANT. You tell it an artist or a song that you like, and it streams similar music for you. But (this is key) they don't classify by "genre" (stooopid) or even by artist. They analyze each song individually. So if you happen to like the one cool song on some lame new artist's album, you're going to get other cool songs instead of all the other lame songs by the same artist. Oh, and it's FREE. It's like having the KTRU djs at your disposal, without the frickin' reggae show (which SUCKS, by the way, just in case any KTRUers ever read this--if you have to have this show, at least move it to 2am or something and NOT at rush hour, 'mkay?)
