A Windy Walk

Occasionally there are signs of spring around these parts. I even did a little raking last week. I think it would be possible today, but I already went out to do errands. Wednesday and Thursday it'll be me, the rake, and no mercy on those old leaves.

Happy Spring,

Red Sox Open Season April 1, 2011

There's nothing like the hope of spring and a new baseball season... Especially if the Red Sox pitching rotation achieves up to the standard set by Jon Lester.


The sun is shining on New England today, our radiation readings are only slightly elevated, and my new book is scheduled for release in May, 2011.

At the Mall

I was at the local Mall today. It was like a ghost town. I sold some old gold. (Was that the name of a cigarette?)
I saw a little girl (about 6) with her mother and grandmother. The little girl asked about Easter. There were signs and displays about. Said the grandmother, "That's when the Easter bunny comes and fills your basket with candy."
I almost choked.... It made me quite despondent about the state of our world.
Take care World. I have faith that you can make it.

Yummmm......my characters love food and cooking.

I made the best corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes ever..... I make this every year.... but this year I got extra lucky, I guess. Maybe it was the quality of the ingredients. Maybe I wasn't rushed, but it was g-o-o-d. Overate, unfortunately.

And... I made enough to last from the Ides of March to St. Patrick's day.... so no cooking for four days. How cool is that?
