Traveling With Autism

Thursday , 20, February 2014 Comments Off on Traveling With Autism

Most readers of this blog probably know that my oldest grandson, Mikey, is on the Autism Spectrum. He has made tremendous strides in adapting to a world that is not completely natural to him, and like most of us new things in his life can be a particular challenge. New things or changes are particularly […]

Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

Wednesday , 19, February 2014 Comments Off on Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

I’ve read very few of the original (1969) Guardians of the Galaxy comic books and mostly knew about them from their meeting of the Avengers in “The Korvac Saga” which spanned issues #167 through 177 of the Avengers’ comic book in 1978. I’ve never read any of the new (2008) version of the Guardians of […]

Miscellaneous Meanderings

Tuesday , 18, February 2014 Comments Off on Miscellaneous Meanderings

Tonight I’m “batching” it while Cindy’s parents are out of town and Cindy is spending the night with Amber and Abby. We went to Lake Underhill this morning and walked 2.8 miles. Unfortunately, I had forgotten my cell phone at home so wasn’t able to record it on the “MapMyWalk” app. Then most of the […]

Washington Mall Drinking Fountain Birds

Sunday , 16, February 2014 Comments Off on Washington Mall Drinking Fountain Birds

I’m finally going through my photos of the trip to Washington, D.C. that Cindy and I took last July (the album or albums will be posted this week) when I come across this photo I snapped while we were walking around the Washington Mall area. I guess the birds were trying to block the drain […]

We Should Stop Calling It “Global Warming”

Saturday , 15, February 2014 Comments Off on We Should Stop Calling It “Global Warming”

While scientifically the term “Global Warming” is an accurate and true description of what is undeniably happening, too many people like the parents depicted in this cartoon (or the U.S. Senator who thought he was being clever yesterday when he said “It’s cold. Al Gore told me this wouldn’t happen.”) lock onto the “warming” part […]

If you own a dog and it turns in circles before relieving itself, this video explains why that may be happening.

Testing The Mobile App

Thursday , 13, February 2014 Comments Off on Testing The Mobile App

Just a short test of the iPhone mobile app for WordPress. If it works we’ll all get to see it on the blog. We checked out of the airport-area hotel this morning and returned to Cindy’s parent’s home. Took Bella for a walk and now doing laundry and having lunch. In a little while we’ll […]

Our British Cousins

Wednesday , 12, February 2014 Comments Off on Our British Cousins

My father-in-law’s cousin and her husband flew out of OIA this morning at 7am to spend the last 12 days of their vacation in Antigua before flying home to London. Cindy and I last saw Frank and Jenny 8 years ago when we spent 3 days in London at the end of our 2 week […]

In 1993, Dr. Robert Stephens proposed the creation of Darwin Day and co-founded the Darwin Day Program with Amanda Chesworth. Here is what Darwin Day is all about, from the […]
