75. Doggies

My husband has two black Labradors: Sammy and Emma. Sammy came first from his Grandmother. She found Sammy on the side of the road, abandoned at the tender age of around 3 weeks. When my husband had his first back surgery, his Grandmother came up to help out and brought Sammy with her. My husband […]

74. Business Growth: New Year Goals

One of the things I like about inventing is always seeing possibility on the horizon. A failed experiment gleans new insights into how things work and allows me to create a new experiment to try. For my experiments I collect all kinds of odds and ends to help me out—just recently I got some shower […]

73. Cooking Duck

My most recent cooking adventure: We picked up some duck breasts on a road trip, and about a week after we got back, I thawed it out and looked up how to cook it. My husband was working on a car, and I was starving, so I decided to try my hand at duck. I […]

72. Analogies

I love giving analogies to my students when lecturing. We could be covering a dense topic, and I like to boil it down to a great analogy for better understanding. Sometimes they are practical examples, and sometimes they have dragons in them. I will word it the most effective way I think will reach my […]

Random Thoughts

71. Randomness

Something quirky to start off the new decade: Sometimes random thoughts interrupt my day, like what if marshmallows were sentient? Would they integrate into society well? Would baby marshmallows leave a sticky residue on the chairs when they sat in class? Would there be mass marshmallow murders everywhere because they are sooo delicious (especially with […]

As this year comes to a close, I do the customary look back at it: I am so grateful for so many things. I am grateful for friends and family, for my jobs and for the adventures I have in the off time; for exploring new options with my blog and businesses; for you, dear […]

69. 88 mph

One of the coolest evenings spent in our current house involved a time machine. I was off for the summer, and my husband was coming home late from a contract job. On this particular evening, I was sitting outside and drinking tea, enjoying the weather and waiting for him to come home. Then I get […]

68. Tiger walks

I used to walk one of my cats around on a leash. His name was Tiger. I posted about him earlier here. I would sit in a chair outside on summer days, and he would just walked around on his leash watching birds and catching grasshoppers. Sometimes we would go for walks around the property, […]

67. Christmas Cheer

For some, the holidays are full of family and friends, of laughter and Christmas trees and presents and merry making all around. For others, this time of year brings tension, apprehension, and feelings of sadness. For a lot of people, sometimes it can be a combination of both. I hope you spend this Christmas in […]

66. Appreciate People

When I was single, I would go on a lot of road trips, with friends or most of the time by myself. I have camped in sand dunes, explored caves, hiked through canyons, walked through a meteor crater, and explored many a state park. It made me happy to be able to go out in […]
