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.

Give it a try if you find it!

Overregulation, Stupidity and the Philadelphia Airport

leave a comment »

This is my formal protest on the stupidity of the people of the United States.

At some point; I am not sure when, this society started its’ decline into a moronic culture.

As I waited to pick up my Aunt from the airport the other night, I noticed something terribly wrong with the way an exit door was designed…

 

Either the people that constructed them were morons, and/or they were intended for the lowest intelligence level of humanity..

Rummy – O

leave a comment »

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..

BBQ

leave a comment »

Quick Post: We’re halfway though the summer and if you haven’t had the chance to make a BBQ, then do it if you can.

 

It is an American Tradition if there ever was one, built by us for our stomachs and as a way of bonding and gathering..

When I say BBQ, I don’t really mean burgers and hot dogs. I don’t mean grilling for an hour. I mean BBQ!

Harvesting the Garden

leave a comment »

This is that time where I write a short reminder to all of you, to grow a garden and reap the rewards of your efforts.

Right now I am looking at a lovely amount of blackberries, picked ripe and ready within a few feet of my backdoor. Why? Because I had the foresight to plant them about two years ago, to care for them and prune them. Now I gather them up to eat with whipped cream.

Even Bella has shown curiosity at the fruity goodies!

Silver makes the world go round

leave a comment »

Another short post as this is my birthday weekend. It seems as though my twin sister finally caught on to what I’ve been telling her all these years: that precious metals and investments make awesome gifts. Think about it: you really can’t spend it easily. You can’t use it up. You’re thinking about the person and their financial future. With gifts like these in a family, you’re helping to enrich each other and move up in the world.
