Back when Kris and I were in Quattro University, we did a 100-Day challenge where for 100 days we would put up a video on our website.  That was a fun time, trying to come up with something every day.  My favorite part was editing the videos.  Video editing were […]

The Birds and the Bugs

It was a quiet weekend.  With the exception of a Zoom critique group meeting, I was pretty free, so we decided to do a little nature walking. We’ve been seeing dragonflies around, so on Saturday, we went to our favorite Dragonfly pond at the California State University in Northridge, CSUN.  […]

I’m Special – And Now I Have Scientific Proof

It’s been a while since I gave blood.  Thanksgiving weekend to be precise.  I was going to give in January, but then, well, Covid. I am O Negative, the universal donor.  I am also CMV Negative.  CMV is a bacterium that is harmless in adults, but it can kill infants.  […]

My Leafy Babies!

  Back in May of last year, I had some disappointing jalapenos.  First, we went to Topper’s Pizza (my favorite pizza place) and ordered a pizza with jalapenos on it.  The jalapenos were disappointingly not hot.  Then I made a plate of nachos at home and added jalapenos to my […]
