Ice fishing and translators and vans, oh my!

April 19th, 2008 · Comments Off on Ice fishing and translators and vans, oh my!

Did you know that wild onions make good bait for ice fishing? Well, it’s true! At least according to my dream it is. But it’s hard to get the fish to take the hook and not just eat the onion off of it from the side. Smart fish. Oh, and some crazy person kidnapped one […]

How then shall I judge?

Mental Illness.  That phrase has such a stigma.  It dredges up images of people who can’t function due to severe retardation, or people laughing maniacally somewhere in the far recesses of a hospital.  Depression actually sounds a bit better these days probably because it’s become so common, but somehow it doesn’t really capture the nature […]

March 1st, 2008 · Comments Off on … and here they are

Ok, we’re switched over! Joel says I’m going to become a PHP hack because I was mucking about with the code for my blog a good bit yesterday (which is why I didn’t end up posting at all). That is to say, if something doesn’t work, it’s probably my fault. 🙂 Feel free to let […]

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’

February 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments

You can’t stop time. It’s funny how a mother (and a father to some extent, I’m sure) experiences a mix of pride, joy, and grief with each new accomplishment of her child. The pride and joy are pretty obvious, I think, but that little tinge of grief is usually hidden in the background, a sorrow […]
