June 16, 2021

I love music, especially the music of the sixties. I consider myself very fortunate to have been at the right age to fully witness this wonderful decade, jam packed with great music from incredibly talented performers. Many of them are now true legends in the world of music. Names like Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Simon […]

In my last blog I wrote about some of the fun things we did at our family’s summer cottage, Hickory Lodge, in northwestern NJ. There are so many things we enjoyed while there and this blog will talk about more of them and, a little mischief we may have been part of too. One of […]

I’ve done a lot of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects over the years but one stands out as being my all time favorite. It’s probably given me more satisfaction than any other project. My all time favorite DIY project was building my own desktop computer! In fact I’m using it to write this blog! I’ve been involved […]

So I come home from a walk the other day and I noticed a rather large box sitting in our front steps. Mmm, it kind of looks like a box that a refrigerator would come in, but I don’t think Mr. Ken ordered a new one. As I come inside, Mr. Ken excitedly tells me […]

The news just keeps getting more and more depressing. Between the election and the COVID, there doesn’t seem to be any good news. So, this week, I thought I would focus on something to make you all smile. We all need to smile more these days. As most of you know, Mr. Ken and I […]

Rethinking gratitude

It is a stressful time for all of us these days. I try really hard to focus on the positive. Part of my morning practice is to focus on what I am grateful for. It can be something as simple as the sun shining or that I had a good night’s sleep. It is hard […]

It was time for another road trip this weekend. And where else would we go but to our favorite Dairy Queen to get a Blizzard treat. This time we brought the “guys” with us, Sir Oliver and Sir Angus. As you can see they enjoyed the Blizzard too. We got our favorite, cappuccino heath bar […]
