Personal Finance

Overheard in the locker room at the Y this morning: “I’ve finished the Japanese.  The Spanish is next.” “That’s something.” “Yeah, it’s what I decided to do.” “That’s one of those real things.” “Thanks.” “That’s the right way.” “My father drilled that into me, and I’ve always tried to live it.  Never cut corners on […]

Can’t get there from here

Directions. When we lived in Houston, my wife used to joke that if something wasn’t on the freeway, Westheimer, or Montrose, Conrad didn’t know how to get there.  I could argue that if something weren’t on the freeway, Westheimer, or Montrose, then you didn’t need to get there, but nonetheless, if I had to, I […]


We went to the park today to feed the ducks. There were baby ducks, too. Including this very little baby which kept wandering away from its parents. For some reason, everybody called it “Conrad”. I don’t know why.

We Love Bunnies

It was “Dress as your favorite animal day” at camp. GC1, and GC2 in the bunny costume GC1 made for her.

Three (or four) birthday parties

A special day today – we were invited to three birthday parties! The first was the saka dawa celebration at the Buddhist Compassion Center.  Saka dawa commemorates the Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and death.   This was a rather somber affair as birthday parties go, but the girls did get party favors and they met the […]


We took GC1 & GC2 out into the backyard this evening as night fell.  There were lots of fireflies to try and catch, and soon (probably attracted by the fireflies) several bats appeared and swooped among us.  A bunny rabbit was spotted out for late silflay, too.

Climate change

I don’t know what caused it, but it was 27° (81° F) here yesterday afternoon and this morning it snowed.

Brown County

The mornings are getting chill, the days shorter, the trees are taking on vermillion hues, and like the swallows to Capistrano, Hoosiers in south-central Indiana make their annual trek to Brown County. Well, we don’t live in Indiana, but Brown County is only about two hours away.  So we decided to take a day off […]

Aviation Heritage Festival

Today we went to the Aviation Heritage Festival at our neighborhood airport, Bowman Field.  As I have mentioned before, it’s a historic airport (hence the “Heritage” part of the title, I guess); the oldest continuously operating airport in the U.S.  It was also a huge hub of activity in the late thirties and forties. Some […]

mac & cheese Magazine

For those of you who were skeptical of my claim that I sighted a copy of “mac & cheese” magazine at our local Kroger, I went ahead and purchased the latest edition on my last visit there. Your mouth will drool.
