Part of my end-of-the-year routine means going through the notebooks I’ve accumulated over the past twelve months. I pour over scribbles and jottings, making sure I’ve left nothing of value behind. Often, I find I haven’t. But just now I’ve come across something...

As I’m sure a lot of you are aware, I am obsessed with hedgehogs! I want one soooo badly, but we currently have a dog and a cat and my hubs and Iagreed we’d always keep it to two. As such, it’ll probably be years before I can get a little hedgie of my own. In the meantime, I get my fix from the p...

I was home alone on a Friday night a couple of years ago, clicking through TV stations, bored and skeptical about my viewing choices, when I happened upon something that seemed pretty intimate and serious. It was the show, Friday Night Lights, which I didn’t really know much about. The particular...

One thing I really love about internet-land is the amount of wisdom that's out there. So many people are so good at so many things, and they're so happy to share it. People are always putting up useful information about how to do this and how to do that. It can be extremely useful.

Okay, it dawned on me recently that I have a couple apologies to make.

We all begin in what we end
since from the Garden we did wend
and traded pineapples for thorn
and turned God's care for us to scorn.

Sad, isn't it, this morbid turn
from Paradise, from man to worm.
From clay to clay, and dust to dust
we drearily pursue our Must.

Good to see The Americans back on television for the debut of its third season tonight. The whole episode was enjoyable. But like an old-fashioned sandwich in which the bread is the tastiest part, my favorite scenes in the show were at the bumpers, or the beginning and the end.

With the rise of tablets and other
e-readers, some are starting to pronounce the traditional hard back book as
dead. As new versions of e-readers like the Kindle become more advanced, the
noise about the death of books becomes louder.



Are we really part of the last generation
