Nope. It’s not a typo. I realize that the b and v keys are right next to each other, but I assure you, it’s sailor talk rather than fancy fingers. This weekend, I got to participate in one of Vanessa’s passions: Sailing. You see, a few weeks ago, she bought a Sunfish, a small sailing vessel. Since that time, I’ve learned of such terms as: tacking, jib, jibe, and that a rope is called a line when it’s attached to…

I don’t know why, but from the time that I was a child, I heard that when it is raining and the sun is shining at the time time then that meant that the devil was beating his wife. Well, I guess that he was not too happy with his wife today because for about 10 minutes the sun was shining and the rain was falling. I hope that she’s OK. OK – My first bilingual post! It says the…

On Ashland Ave, nearly due south was Firestone Park. Each year, on the 4th of July, they held a pretty good fireworks display.

This was a pretty special night for us as most of my friends had to…

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to accomplish a couple of things in the morning simultaneously. I’m able to have a walk that looks quite impressive because of the copious amounts of sweat that my body sheds, even though it may only be 68 degrees, as well as moisturizing my skin. The humidity level has been frequently in the mid to high 90% level! I’ve enjoyed going to the dam, too, now that I know where it is…

I’ve always had a thing for cone flowers. So, last year, I bought some, planted them in the backyard, and this year, they have returned and are quite showy. I used to have to drive to enjoy them in other gardens, now they are just a few steps away. I enjoy looking at them every morning. The other day, I decided to go out and take a few portraits. I’m no gardener, for sure, but theses plants are hardy and…

I have to say, after reading this story, I am impressed by this young man’s restraint and foreword thinking when this lunatic woman attacked him on the beach for exercising his 1st Amendment rights of self expression. Yes. He was taking photos! Imagine that. She called 911 three times, and, when they didn’t show up – because he was doing nothing illegal, she decided to attack him and teach him a lesson about taking pitchers of people in public. She…
