Yep, the snow continues to fall around here. Well, and a lot of other places, too, many of which are not at all used to all this white stuff everywhere. At least we here in New England are quite familiar with the stuff and what to do when it covers the entire world. In spite … Continue reading The Winter That Just Keeps On Giving

One of the things I plan to do this year is make a few things that I should be doing regularly into actual habits. I mean, I kind of had those as goals last year, too, but well, last year was an odd year in so many ways, I just decided that I wasn't going … Continue reading Force of Habit
