Jogless Alert!
I interrupt my blog posts with this important news: There's a NEW jogless technic.  And I want to share it before I lose it, or you lose it.  It's from TECHknitting, which I have as a favorite blog (to the right), and you can find this fascinating-for-knitt...

First Day of School- Kind of...
School in Norway starts with first grade for six year olds...and last week was the beginning, kind of... First graders go to school for half days, and the transition from 9 hour day care to a school program of 3 hours just doesn't work with most families.  ...

Concert in the country
I heard about some concerts at Fana Church.  All during July, and it wasn't until the very last one that I planned my transportation out there.  It involved a ride on the light-rail and a bus, and it didn't disappoint! Inside was spectacular! I was expectin...

Much to do... Too much to do!
Crazy busy.  Taking on an extra job which more than doubled my expectations.  That would satisfy me, however, in a delusional moment I said YES to playing an organ/trumpet concert!  And it's right around the corner now!  In Gallup, NM, at a tiny church whic...

Patience
Knitting...  Most people say, "I don't have the patience to knit."  I say they aren't obsessive enough to knit!   (Big smile!  You know I'm right!) Orchids... Most people don't have the patience to let an orchid blossom a second, third or fourth time.  I al...

Dogs and cats
We've had dogs and cats, and they have tolerated each other quite well.  In fact, when our previous dog got old and blind and deaf, the cats would walk her around the neighborhood, I swear, they would steer her home. Then the dog was gone and the cats, Bonn...
