    Umm, Breakfast Time?!

    When travelling, one of my family’s favorite things to do is find a great local place to grab breakfast. We consider ourselves budding biscuit aficionados and, well, gravy is life.

    It’s real. This is an old blog -using that term loosely as it amounts to a couple of sentences- from another time and place, literally & figuratively. It is one of my favorite things ever. I am pleased to present you with photographic evidence of something our grandmothers have long warned us about but, regarding its actual existence, many of…

    Antique Ideas

    Daylight Saving Time Is Dumb. There, I said it, but we were all thinking it. If it was a concept with current relevance and everyone played along, it might be understandable, but this is not the case.
