Dinner with Jeremayakovka

Monday, July 28th, 2008

I had the great pleasure of dining with Jeremayakovka in San Francisco. That means he’s a friend, not just one of the FIHMY, Friends I Haven’t Met Yet. He’s got the photo.

I also like this photo, also from San Francisco:

Why the sweater, coat and scarf in July, you ask? Because it was 55oF in San Francisco, that’s why!

Last evening at BlogHer08

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

Last night BlogHer08 rounded up with a huge party at Macy’s, where we all had a great time. It was a great conference, and a lot of fun. There’s a video interview of me at the shoe department (imagine that!) which will be up on YouTube (or maybe not). When it turns up I’ll link to it.

I have to thank the fabulous Jane Goowdwin for her wonderful support and her friendship, which made the past four days a very happy experience.

Special thanks also to Morra Aarons-Mele, Lisa Stone and Elisa Camahort Page for inviting me.

Moving the blog has had a lot of bumps and now appears to be down. For the time being, here’s a photo of San Francisco at 6AM today.

The train ride home starts in California right now:

Wild Turkey

Another sign of Spring: Maria’s wild turkey (no, not Wild Turkey)

Front yard invasion, today’s items, and the Carnival

Sunday, August 12th, 2007

Don’t miss also Ellen Goodman, Helpless Little Girl

The Husband does the gardening (except for the mulching, which was done this week – and trust me, you don’t want to smell the mulch much), and a couple of years ago he planted clematis. Well, the clematis love our front yard and now we have a large patch of clematis ready to take over. The ones in the picture are well over 5′ tall and seem to be spreading.

Let that be a lesson to all of us.


SC 2 Linked To Sami Al-Arian Investigation
There’s been another strange development regarding the searching of a home in the investigation into Yousseff Samir Megahed and Ahmed Abda Mohamed, arrested for allegedly carrying pipe bombs in their vehicle just miles from a military facility in Goose Creek, South Carolina. According to this report, the home was also searched some years back during the investigation into Sami Al-Arian.

Go read the rest.


For some reason the comments aren’t showing under the posts. I have not a clue as to why or what to do, so my apologies for the inconvenience. Hopefully it will fix itself.

Don’t miss Francis Porretto‘s excellent post from 2004 following up my post from yesterday.

Kill Devil Hills, NC, Wednesday, June 27, 8:07PM:

I’m leaving for Durham, but will post once I get there.
In the meantime, here’s an excellent post from Gagdad Bob, On the Backwardness of Progressives: Let Me Count the Ways

Update, later: I’m sorry I haven’t posted, but I’m working on an article you’ll read tomorrow.

Death on the sands! Call the nanny state!

Via Huber,
Reason on Line uncovers the scandal: Castles Made of Sand IV: The Revenge — This Time It’s Personal

Is this from The Onion?


The article’s in the New England Journal of Medicine: Sudden Death from Collapsing Sand Holes. Where the NJEM goes, can CNN be far behind?

Or, as a commenter in the Reason post says,

Good thing the New England Journal of Medicine is covering this issue…nothing screams Medicine like people falling into holes…

Here, I’ve invented a cure:


You can thank me later. Nominations to the Nobel Prize for Medicine are deeply appreciated.

(Later today I’ll go to the beach and photograph one of these lurking dangers as a public service to my readers.)

Update, Saturday June 30:
I did go to the beach that day and photographed, but wasn’t able to post the photos because I was too lazy until today. So here you have them:

Holes to China, or craters of death?

This one has a lethal weapon ready to chew your toes:

I post, you decide.
