(A short fiction by Sidharth Vardhan February 17, 2018) “My mother was from a traditional background and biased towards sons over daughters. That is perhaps why when she gave birth to a twin – one of each sex, it was me who spend most of the time in her arms during our infancy rather than…

Mobil ini memang termasuk masih baru infonya, bahkan saya sendiri awalnya masih asing dengan mobil SUV yang ternyata dari pabrikan Cina. Mungkin karena saya termasuk bukan pengamat atau penghobi mobil, jadi info-i... Read more of this blog post »
If we were having coffee, I’d moan that the crack in our ceiling has gotten worse and I fear the house might collapse on us. Sad, because we’d probably die…still, how is your coffee?

tbh i think there’s a problem with how some of you see queer rep where you seem to think queer rep means “a queer character being in a happy m/m or f/f relationship by the end of canon” rather than just “a character who is canonically queer”
this is shown by the countless occasions where...
We arrived at the entrance to Pikes Peak a little after 4PM. The afternoon sunlight with dramatic clouds flowing over the mountain and the gorgeous terrain provided for an amazing drive.

Last week our family welcomed a new grandbaby into the world. Mama and baby are both fine, thank the Lord. And I had the pleasure of taking care of Lyla, who is two and a half, while mama and papa were in the hospital.

It’s been nearly five years since I last wrote about Big Finish on this site. Much of this gap is due to the fact that it’s only fairly recently that Big Finish’s license was expanded to cover the new series, so there’s been pretty slim pickings post-McGann. But in 2015 Big Finish released their...Read more of this blog post »

Until quite recently, I was unable to look back at the many of the trips that David and I took together because he did almost all the photographing, and he took 35MM color slides. The film he used was the best way, in those days, to capture really fine images. But that tec... Read more of this blog post »
Because I was out of town last week, it’s been a while since I’ve been on a therapy cat visit! Plus, it’s been even longer since I’ve been to this particular hospital.

I usually blog in “real time”, but I did a slew of projects one right after the other over the past few weeks that I missed a few of the smaller things that happened in between the bigger things. Giving something a total makeover is the flashy part, but sometimes it’s the little details that fol...Read more of this blog post »
