Now, this I’d drive!

I tripped over the car for me! It’s a hybrid, in more than one way: It can run on either gas or electricity and can be recharged on the existing grid and it is both motorcycle and car! I can totally see myself in one of these things (room for a passenger, too). Speed and […]

Hot!

I have never seen my barometer this high since I got it for Christmas – a whopping 1055 mb. Can’t say I’ve seen the humidity this high, either, (it’s pointing at 60; sorry about the flash) and this is indoors! It’s around 11 am and my balcony, which is in the shade on the west […]

Ack…

Inspiration is just not hitting me. I have truly gone on vacation and that includes the blog. I mean, it’s 3 pm and I’ve hardly just finished breakfast. (Which looked like this today. I couldn’t finish it; I had to have oatmeal. I am simply not someone who can have only fruit for one meal; […]

Learning from the radio

Since I’m home, I’m indulging in listening to daytime radio. Radio’s always educational, and so far today I have learned that the reason for low doorways on older farms was to be able to knock an intruder on the head as he entered. Having lived in such an old farmhouse myself, I instantly thought a […]

Since I’m not at work

I’m still vegging. Hopefully, inspiration will strike soon. In the meantime, there’s this: What Your Workspace Says About You You are an organized and detail oriented person. You have your life in order. You are hardworking and driven. You have an excellent work ethic. You enjoy your job and don’t feel guilty about how much […]

In a fit of irony

…there’s this, since I have absolutely no inspiration whatsoever for a blog post. You Are 67% Creative You are beyond creative. You are a true artist – even if it’s not in the conventional sense of the word. You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times. How Creative […]

A moment in shopping

I am one of those people who thinks 8 am is an ungodly hour and that being up and dressed and finished with breakfast by noon is early enough. At least on weekends. But since I had a coffee date with a friend at noon, I was up and dressed somewhat earlier and at the […]

On protective bacteria, mysterious violins and meaningful musicians

I’m vegging. That means a lot of surfing (and catching up on reading). A few things I have tripped over that make me go hmm: The bacteria helicobakter pylori, which a few years ago was found to be the real reason for stomach ulcers, may actually be protecting children from asthma. With cleaner water and […]

Now I’ll do all those

…things I meant to do before my vacation started. Like dishes, and laundry, and decluttering, and rearranging of furniture, and more decluttering, and my nails, and my yoga, and… You know how it is when you are about to shift gears? Like noticing it’s only a half hour until lunch so that big project you […]

Legal listening

(No, this is not about letting telecoms get away with illegal wiretaps.) You Are a Mac You are creative, stylish, and super trendy. You demand the best – even if it costs an arm and a leg. Are You a Mac or a PC? OK, obviously, if you don’t even have Internet Explorer, you’re most […]

The nice, little things

“It is the little things in life that comfort us, because it is the little things in life that bother us.” —Pascal [1] After a couple of summers of not bothering with flowers on my balcony, I felt inspired this year and bought pansies, which are not only a favorite flower, but also a flower […]

Mobile Me

It’s been a somewhat nerdy Sunday. After successfully solving all the sudoku puzzles in a couple of newspapers, I then tackled the computer. Apple has upgraded and changed its online service “dot Mac” to “Mobile Me”. So I spent a little while this afternoon upgrading to a cloud. When that was done, Apple offered me […]

Hotel California

I’ve been vegging, watching Italian murder mysteries set in Sicily (beautiful), reading British murder mysteries set in Cambridge (beautiful), and catching up on the latest episodes of favorite series, including “Dead Like Me”. I am fascinated by series and movies that deal with the afterlife, but what prompted me to write, is my desire to […]

Needing to chill

Today was the first day of my two weeks alone in “customer reception” where I felt was on top of things and even had some time to goof off (meaning, surf the ‘net). It’s been busy, but busy’s good. Busy is far better than bored. (I can’t believe how fast these two weeks have flown!) […]

Keera Ann Fox goes to the moon

I’m sending my name to the moon. My name – Keera Ann Fox – gets a ride with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, on a microchip. I love the idea of getting to send my name. Makes me go back to the giddy days of the 1960’s and the space race and those who first orbited […]

Wordless Wednesday – Giving gigabytes
