Into the Wild

It’s proven.  Brandon and I can definitely survive in the wild…with proper gears, that is. We have figured out that a cure for my wonderlust and his breaking out of the gaming rut is camping. So we have been buying up gears from REI so we need to test them–and our skills–out somewhere safe.  Somewhere we can pack up and run home to if anything goes wrong.  So I snagged us one last spot of car camping at San Onofre San Mateo campground for Friday and Friday night. Friday morning, we woke up on our own sweet time, stopped to...

Everyday should be Memorial Day

As long as there are military men and women out there fighting for our freedom in a war or just doing their jobs somewhere peaceful, everyday should be Memorial Day.

The wives and husbands holding down the fort while they are gone, not knowing if they would be coming back. The mothers and fathers watching their children...

Doomed

I’m taking it as a sign that I should just go ahead and change the entire look of my website. The first time I tried to fix a minor thing a couple of weeks ago, air guitaring at the keyboard caused some issues and I had to start over. This time, my ambition to upgrade my WordPress fueled the fire. Then because I could install it finally on ThrilltheWorldLosAngeles.com, I thought I surely can do it here. So I archived the blog’s database. But didn’t save the CSS template. And here we are again. So, I’m going to spend the...

If I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head since I’ve seen it on The Graham Norton Show Christmas Special, you shouldn’t be able to either. Here. Have yourself some Tim Minchin. ETA: Brandon sent this to me from Explosm.net after my attempts to get the song above out of my head all day yesterday.  True dat!...
