Java code is not like an onion. Java code is like an archaeological dig in a Mesopotamian city that has been constantly inhabited for 8,000 years. – Bill Sutton

Farmers Market

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

After five years we’ve finally gotten to the Burnaby Farmers market. The radishes are so yummy and crunchily perfect. We came away with pork chops, potatoes, blueberry pie, radishes, carrots, artisanal chocolate (lemon basil OMnomG), snickerdoodles and egg bread. Brilliant, brilliant sunny day in the lower mainland, full of wonderful things to do. Iran and […]

The wit and wisdom of imaginary creatures

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

  In this case, Raylan Givens. I don’t feel very well so I’ll be sticking close to home today. Yesterday I went to physio and walked back with what felt like (and fell onto the ground.. twice..) 30 pounds of groceries.  But it was good to have fresh veggies and oddly nothing got broken or […]

This is precisely the kind of story my mOm likes

Which is why I’m linking to it.  Knitters unite!  or unravel, as required.

Physio and carrots

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Physio kicked my ass this morning.  My flexibility was deemed excellent and worthy of comment, but my lack of strength was considered troubling.  Of course.  At least I am well enough to start swimming again. I am showing the cafe tonight, or so I fondly hope, wish me luck. Keith dropped by last night, it […]

Incremental progress

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Good news first, I have been asked to come in and talk to a recruiter this afternoon.  This is the closest I’ve gotten to genuine job hunting activity in months so I am obviously thrilled. Bad news. I’ve lowered the price and still can’t get anybody interested in the cafe; I will have to break […]

Eddie you old codger

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Eddie is the senior cat in the household.  He’s 15 or 16, and while his back end is starting to be saggy, he’s a very sleek and healthy cat who simply despises Miss Margot…. or pretends to. Last night Jeff and I were watching the thrilling conclusion of the 1st season of Veronica Mars when […]

Sundry and various

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Brinicles. I had no idea such things existed. Katie will be heading off for bloodwork this morning. She is fasting, and thus tired and cranky. Izzy and I (the grandsnake) bonded nicely last night. He is one of the most hand tame snakes I ever interacted with, although I will never feel about him the […]

Japanese TV sure is weird

Check this out.

Margot was calling for me after I left

Monday, January 28th, 2013

… Or I should say squawking, according to Jeff. I bought and brought back two packs of specially blended tea from Friday Afternoon, the Serenity blend and the Inara blend.  The Serenity blend is extremely tasty (I’m consuming it right now) and the Inara blend we’ll have to wait to drink.  Jeff and I have […]

an unusual discovery

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Jeff was looking at the drives pOp gave him and there are slide shows.  Oh, yeah.  Here’s the best out of the lot. Bean with bacon soup is simmering on the stove; I don’t have to cook any more today, yay, as there is lots in the fridge to eat and the soup will be […]
