Basketball for Little Ones.

Do you have a YMCA in your area? Or a Parks & Recreation Dept? If so … you really should get your kiddos/grandkids/nieces or nephews into the basketball program. Not only is it good for them … but it is SO good for a daily dose of laughter. These kids are so totally adorable … […]

Mr. Facebook Guy.

The other day I friend requested someone on Facebook that I had heard lots about within my social circles. He has a reputation locally for being someone who is in the process of “doing it all” … travelling everywhere, meeting famous people, creating successful businesses, enjoying success in his various art forms, etc. I was […]

365 … Revisited.

So, last year I fancied that I would get involved with a photographic 365 project on Flickr. For those who don’t know about these projects … it is very simple (or so they say!) … You basically take a picture a day for every day of the year (thus 365) … and post them somewhere […]

Isaac and I parked our car around noon … hiked all around downtown … from one great event to another … and didn’t make it home till 7:50! A […]

Countdown to Christmas: Epic Gift Idea …

Ok, this gift idea is not necessarily “EPIC” for every person on your list … but I must say, I am pretty darn impressed with it myself. Some good friends of ours thought it was near sacrilege that Isaac had no knowledge of who Marty McFly was or that a DeLorean equipped with a flux […]

Frugal & Green Holiday Idea #1 …

On a recent trip to our local Lowe’s Hardware store … bored out of my mind … waiting for Halis to find whatever he was looking for … I found a clearance section in the plant department. Yes, a clearance section. Now, usually clearance sections of any particular department contain items that I would not […]
