Did I mention in a previous post that living here is like stepping back in time?
As you can see from the photo: waaaaay back!… Continue reading
Yes, when we bought the house, we also got 2 beehives! No, we had neither one ever delt with bees before. But the former owner showed us how to pull the honey from the first hive. He told us we would want to pull the honey from the second hive mid-October. He also warned us that the second hive was… Continue reading
When we were in the process of purchasing our home, the home inspector asked if we had noticed what he called “the tree that defies gravity.” Neither of us had.
Here are some photos of the tree that literally defies gravity. I think it’s an old growth Sitka Spruce, but I’m not 100% certain. Tree hugging Steve is in the… Continue reading

This is just a personal review of a Kickstarter project I backed. I am not receiving any compensation or consideration of any kind from Unagi. They did not ask that I endorse their product. These are just my personal thoughts, opinions, and reactions.
I arrived back in SFO for a week yesterday, and the first thing I… Continue reading
We recently took a short trip out west (at the end of 2018). One of these days I’ll post a photo/video album from the trip. We both really enjoyed it, but we both really enjoy the unique beauty found in the American desert.

This afternoon we did two new things: we ate at Surin of Thailand on Highland Avenue, and we went for a 4 mile round-trip walk along the midtown Beltline’s Eastside Trail.

I only ate at Surin of Thailand once–about two decades ago. Back then I ordered something that was so hot and spicy, I never wanted… Continue reading
