Living Life as A Miracle with Her Majesty, the Queen

My husband and I have celebrated our anniversary in some spectacular fetes:

  • drinking darkly smoked beer among friends in Bamburg, Germany, a local delicacy that looked like Coke and tasted like bacon: it was unique!
  • purchasing patio furniture: two high-backed cushioned chairs and a cocktail table for our margaritas, gin and tonics, or wine to watch the Disneyland fireworks
  • dining at an intimate table for two at Old Vine Cafe, Costa Mesa, CA, where every course is inventively accented with a wine
  • sailing the Blue Danube on a river cruise from Budapest to Nuremburg, with the actual feast in an ancient cellar bar in Prague.

Country Manor

Country Manor: it’s where I aspired to live. I clung to a dream with a dead wrong boyfriend during the early ’70s. It was the name of a store where my Hadleyware collection began, gifts from his mother who craved my entrance to the family.… ...

Living Life as a Miracle: The eyes have it!

I wrote about Einstein’s brain in a recent post, one of my pedantically-oriented writings (I ‘know stuff’ and like to share, but these sort of things don’t come up in friendly talk, so I bring it up in blog).

Because of Einstein’s great brain, as well as his great fame, he is a very quotable man.… ...

Yesterday would have been Larry’s mother’s birthday, a woman that I never got to meet. She died when he was 21.… ...
