leave a comment »

One quick post on my latest project under development..

A paper mache desk lamp for when the power goes out.

Basically you put a tea candle in it and it glows nicely.. check out the pic below and get an appreciation for why I love the medium of paper mache!

Mind you this is made of three layers of gift paper and one layer of colored gift paper. It is very lightweight and aesthetically pleasing. Once completed with a base, it will be gifted to a friend of mine for their home.

Leinenkugel Berry Weiss

leave a comment »

Today I was treated by my sister to a wonderful beverage. Do not ask me to pronounce this beer, just know it is delicious a wheat beer made with raspberries!

The company itself has been in operation in the United States since 1867, and I imagine that it was a small local brewery for most of that time. Thanks to the modern resurgence of people’s tastes for beer, this company has managed to export them into our region.

I recommend it because it is light, sweet, and very smooth. I’d say that it is close to sparking wine in style.

Rummy – O

I tend to post a lot of different things, and many of which might not be considered interesting to the majority of my readers. To that I say: “tough nuggies" because this is my blog and I am not here writing as a business, merely to write as a hobby and to enjoy what I write and when I write it. As I have mentioned many times on here, this is for my benefit and not yours. Thus if you gain/lose from reading my blogs, it is a byproduct and not the intended goal.

With that in mind, I take you to a game I have been playing with my family over the past few months..
