The best laid plans of mice and men…

“In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. There is writing promoting…

Weekend adventures

Last weekend was an adventure. We got tickets to go to the Penn State game and asked my friend, Roxanne, to join us. The goal was to tailgate at Beaver Stadium, but there was confusion on how to go about that. There was some information on the internet that seemed to indicate that only season…

A long overdue update

Sorry I haven’t written a post in awhile. Life has kept us busy this summer and there doesn’t look to be any signs of slowing down in the near future. We had to go home for Independence Day weekend because my Uncle Dick passed away. We boon docked in the camper in his yard so…

The Vista Cruiser sails again!

After eight years of sitting on the trailer and not being used, we got the boat in the water this weekend! The last time we used the boat, we’d taken her to the Pocomoke River just up the road from the house and ran her around, then we brought her back, and winterized her. That…

My first time trying hummus

When I was visiting Israel for the first time, some friends and I decided to sign up for a bunch of tours to see The Holy Land. One of the tours had a stop in the middle of the day for a lunch. We stopped at the café for a bite to eat and were…

8 Struggles of Being a Highly Intelligent Person

This title sounds self-serving but I related to this video so much, I’m willing to take any public beatings for calling myself intelligent. I just had to share this with everyone. I struggle in social situations, I’m not so good at small talk, and I don’t make friends easily, so I don’t get out much….
