Why can't I package something for mailing with out a lot of stress?
We have wonderful types and styles of tape.  Most of it works very well.  Why then do we cuss our way through sealing a package for shipping?  What's wrong with package tape that's sold to the consumer?  One of these days I'm going to seal a package with Du...

long-range consequences.  Many years
ago I ...

November 4, 2014 - A gorgeous sunny day The good and the bad  I am by nature a slug and a night

The Days of Nano, Part B
About that beautiful sunny day After my
morning low blood sugar had been tested and recorded, I had an early breakfast

safety.  I knew the...

I’m thinking about
watercolor This morning
I was up early for a mixed media art class, in which I study and paint in
watercolor.  (Oh yuk!  More water stories.)  With Daylight Savings Time over, I still am

November 2, 2014, Thinking
about rain A little rain It rained
again last night and this time I recognized the sound of rain, falling heavy on
the skylight and the water pouring over the gutter and onto the tiles of the
