Dragonflys

Back to CSUN

We’re not going anywhere today, it’s 104° outside!  And tomorrow it’s supposed to be 106° in Chatsworth.  But that’s okay because last weekend we did go out to the duck pond at CSUN (California State University, Northridge) to look for dragonflies. Last month was our first trip back to CSUN […]

Meaty Meat Saturday

Every month my church, Calvary Bible Church of Burbank https://www.calvarybiblechurch.org/, holds a Men’s Breakfast.  This month, we had a Men’s Barbeque instead. It was held at one of our member’s homes in Burbank.  It started out casual as the guys filtered in.  Once we had a good size group, we […]

How Thymes Have changed

When Kris and I got married, cooking was kind of a chore.  We didn’t really mind it, but it wasn’t particularly exciting.  We had our favorite dishes, and we would say we should try making something new, but we rarely did. Then we moved from an apartment with a small […]

Anniversary on a Budget

Yesterday was our 33rd wedding anniversary.  In past years we’ve taken a week-long trip to Baycon or Fanime in San Jose, then a stop in SLO (San Luis Obispo).  Or a couple of times just a weekend in SLO. This year, our budget being tighter, we stayed in town, but […]

This is a test of the Wannabe Broadcast System

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.  […]
