Q: Who is dumber than a box of rocks? A: Someone who packs a box of rocks around for forty years. And who do you know who has packed a box of rocks around for forty years? Yours truly. That’s who. I have often picked up and taken home attractive rocks. Once, on a trip […]
Signs Of The Times
Here are a few photos of miscellaneous images in my world this week.
Things I Wonder About
Here is a selection of the miscellany of thoughts that cross my mind and questions that Google can’t answer. Does anyone who is not a product buyer for airlines actually buy those hard dry cookies they give you with your cup of tea? Why does my city think icy sidewalks and seniors’ isolation are two […]
Brief Shining Moments
Here are some miscellaneous thoughts I had and pictures that I took today. They are not necessarily related to each other. Someone who knows about search engine optimization recently commented to say that when he typed in “SEO” to the WordPress search engine, my post about SEO was top of the list. I was at […]
The Buttons of My Life
Today I did something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I took out and repurposed my button and pin collection from its hiding place in a corner of a drawer in my jewelry box. As regular readers already know, I tend to hold on to things for no good reason. Among the things […]
Here are some things I have seen in Alberta recently. Enjoy.

Odds and Ends, but Mostly Odds
These are a few of the pictures I have taken of odd things that have caught my eye.
Suddenly Single Seniors Sorting Stuff Out
I have gone most of my life without ever going to a funeral, until about ten years ago. Since then I seem to have been to lots of them. The size and style of the ceremonies vary, but the outcome is always the same. Somebody has to sort stuff out. After someone dies, they leave […]
The Value of a Garage Sale
$260. That’s it. That’s what your excess miscellany is worth. In order to earn that, you must spend weeks sorting things out, carrying the sale items to your garage, and pricing them. You will have to get the help of friends to move the big stuff and you will have to borrow folding tables. You […]
