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.


Jelly Bellys + Wine = A Different Kind of Tasting

The Oakland Nature Preserve (a worthy project that Mom & Dad are involved with) will be the beneficiary of a very different kind of wine-tasting next weekend. (Scroll down and click on the different varietals--pretty cool.) I have to admit that I was skeptical, primarily because jelly bellys and wine do not mix well in my tummy, but after reading the website, I kind of see where they're coming from. I think it's very interesting that all the "over-oaked" wines include vanilla and buttered toast jelly beans. EXACTLY why I don't like oaky "furry" wines. Hmm.... (Check out un-oaked un-manipulated Semillon for an example of yummy goodness.)
