Happy Halloween!

Am I the only person that thinks this is in the poorest possible taste? Today, on Halloween, I receive a survey from the corporate-owned cemetery asking me to rate my “overall cemetery experience” from last month when we buried my mother there. When my parents purchased their cemetery plots decades ago, they bought them at this quaint little cemetery that… Continue reading

Replay: The Week in Review

Really enjoy the Replay iOS app, which makes creating a video from your media crazy simple. I blogged previously about the app at this link. The video below is comprised of photos and video shot on my phone over the past week. It features an appearance by Conrad the Kat on his birthday, my Halloween selfie (nothing special), the new… Continue reading

Best Ruth Baby Ginsberg Halloween Costume

I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of America‘s great national treasures. I’ve blogged about my admiration of her before. Even into her 80’s, she’s an amazing voice for justice on the Supreme Court of the United States—a quick-witted, liberal voice of sanity in a bleak world of conservative darkness and repression. I think she’s awesome! But I had no… Continue reading

My Halloween Outfit

Well, unlike Steve, who is dressing up like a leprechaun today, I’m wearing a more “conservative” Halloween outfit today: your basic black. They say that black is slimming. I looked for the blackest black I own. 🙂 So, Herman the skull1 made his annual appearance. This year, aside from an all-black outfit, I grabbed my black and orange shoes. Seemed… Continue reading

Happy Halloween!

I’m not sure if one wishes others a “happy” Halloween—maybe a horrifying one is more apropos? At any rate, these images have come through my RSS aggregator over the past week. They are truely frightening; so, I thought I would share. I’m just sweet that way. This first is one of several face makeup ideas for the season. Click on… Continue reading

Greece/Denmark: Day Eight — Travel Day: Athens to Copenhagen

The flight out to Copenhagen leaves late this afternoon; so, we have the morning to enjoy Athens and decided to walk to the Acropolis museum. Somehow the elevator in the hotel took us to -1 instead of the main floor for breakfast. When the door opened I saw a dozen Greek girls all dressed identically, with the same hair style,… Continue reading

THE Hat

It shocked the world! Yes, I wanted one for a Halloween costume this year, but, alas, Halloween was not meant to be because of the move. I wonder if anyone else had the idea?! Sadly, I can only find one home rendition of the astounding head dress. The best “take off” of the towering head ware (mixing the somber with… Continue reading

Happy 10/10/10 @ 10:10

Image via Wikipedia Working in the yard this morning, trimming back the bougainvilla, a neighbor walked by and said here children couldn’t wait to return to the haunted house at our house again this Halloween. Little do the tiny preci know:  this year’s Haunted House will even be more terrifying than last year’s!… Continue reading

Creative Genius: Vlad Gerasimov

For years now, I have been a huge fan of Vlad Gerasimov’s work at Vladstudio, @vladstudio, where this Russian digital artist shares desktop designs, e-cards, apps and games, and much more that are brilliantly creative and beautiful.  He provides each of his nearly 700 desktops in virtually every imaginable size one would ever need (over 60!!), for single monitors, double… Continue reading
