Kitty is brilliant.  I installed a Theme Switcher today.   Not without completely killing the page at least once, but I did it. So, you can pick whatever of my stored themes your heart desires.  There’s a drop down box at the bottom of the sidebar. If you get stuck on a page, let me know.  […]

From the Publisher “Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller A Walk in the Woods. In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found in an entirely different place: Australia, the country […]

So,  based on the feedback I have so far, here’s what I am going to do: It sounds, basically, that people still like reading the books.  It also sounds like we are not getting an intermixing of styles like we should. And it warms my heart to see that most of us are in favor […]

… I am experimenting with another holiday theme.  Feel free to throw in your critique.  Jolly red and green. Cool, soothing blue nature. Which is the real me?

So… About this book thing… The Silence in the Inter-world was rather deafening last month on the book front: I can interpret this in many ways, most of which will be weird (because Robbin-logic, while quite linear, is not necessarily linear in the direction of most of your normal-human-type brain circuits), or just plain wrong.  […]

Normally, I am a pretty happy person.  This comes as a surprise to most people who don’t know me well, because I have a rather unfortunate face.  I don’t smile a lot.  In fact, I look fairly grim most of the time.  I could always sympathize with Ringo Starr when he said “It’s just me […]

Or, well, at least of this blog.  I am thinking of changing themes, folks.  At least for the winter.  I really like the old green color scheme and artwork, but I will admit, it’s starting to get a little “too familiar”.  Like a favorite pair of jeans, it’s really comfortable, and it has wear patterns in […]

My pediatrician warned me, but I didn’t listen.  At 17 months old, Harry has managed to escape all the childhood maladies in the baby books that I prepared myself for.   He has never had a stomach bug, never thrown up, never had diarrhea.  He has had a cold or two, but he truly has never […]

Having looked around, not too thoroughly I might add, I have discovered that I am the FIRST!  The first, that is, to post a GAMBLE review on last month’s book.  I am no longer a slackblogger.  I RULE!  If you come along and show me you beat me, and totally burst my little pride-bubble, you are […]
