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.

I am getting really tired of the weathermen creating STUPID HYPE around every cloud that ventures forth from the Gulf. Guess what, guys, sometimes IT'S JUST WEATHER. Like we've all dealt with and yes, even survived! for years. Get a grip. It doesn't always have to be The Next Big Drama.



I took this video on my way home from work today. The office across the hall from us didn't even open this morning. They must all be from someplace where it never rains.



This wanna-be-disaster didn't even rate "average summer thunderstorm" interest. I cleaned my windshield just to get some "raindrops" in the picture somewhere....
