spring: tweet… tweet… HONK!

As prepared as I was for the return of Spring, I hadn’t quite accounted for the birds.

40: the big (?) four-oh…

As I just received what is likely my last birthday gift this past weekend, I suppose I can safely say that birthday time has now ended. Especially as all of my grandparents have passed, so there won’t be any strangely...

DC: Beat the Heat with a Free Frozen Treat!

There are two things I know people in DC love doing, one is griping about the heat and the other is getting free stuff. So how about a great way to combine both of those into one activity!

video: I married a Chinese…

A disturbing bit of patter overheard this morning while listening to the news on our local Fox station. Mostly we just watch to see what the weather is like and if our metro commute will be impacted by anything.

twitter tuesday: Impostors!

Unless you’re the one raking in money from the duped masses, chances are good that you don’t like spam. Estimates say that nearly 80-90% of all incoming e-mail these days is from spam senders. Thank goodness most of them haven’t...
