Yes, I confess. By the time I was 3, I was hooked on the ol' brew. (And, apparently, I passed that on to my eldest. Though, I preferred a bottle) Observez Vous... Actually, I was more hooked on Dad...I was his toddlin' sidekick in mighty whitey tights! Anything he did, I wanted to do. Anywhere … Continue reading I Was a Toddler-age Tosspot
A friend in need…
As a community, I’d say bloggers are pretty tight knit for a group of folks that have never met. Please help spread the word for one of our own, as others have and I am now…PLEASE SHARE, our pages reach thousands…but it only takes one.
By brother, Fergus McInnes, went missing in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday 9 September 2014.
He was due to attend a work conference in the Swiss town of Martigny the following day, and to meet his colleagues that evening for a meal.
He boarded the 09:35 EasyJet flight at Edinburgh airport and was seen on CCTV in Geneva airport around 13:00, where he bought a train ticket that we believe was a return to Martigny.
Nothing has been seen of him since.
He did not arrive at the meeting point that evening to go for a meal, he did not check into his hotel room and he did not appear at the conference. He also failed to catch his return flight to Edinburgh on 11 September.
His mobile phone has not been switched on since he switched it off for the flight…

The day began as every day begins...and then it smiled ♥ I found my smile wiggling its way through squiggly handwriting, wrapped in baby blue, royally sealed with wax and friendship And after thousands of miles...in my mailbox Where do you find yours?
It's finally here. The big day. Two weeks to find it. Two weeks to haggle, inspect, haggle some more, fix, and sign on the dotted line. Leaving behind the bright lights of northern Vermont Nothing to do now but wait for the professionals who'll pack whatever is not nailed down... Just in time for the … Continue reading Moving Day

Our Massachusetts exploits end today. We closed on the house yesterday and the Bay State will soon be in the rear-view. But, before I leave, I'd like to share one last mini adventure with you. One of those rare (if ever) experiences that leave you reeling and become written with indelible ink in the memory … Continue reading Steak, Medium Rare, with a side of MILF
I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor. After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and … Continue reading The Cab Ride
There are times, quite often in fact, when we let our experiences dictate the path of our lives. Usually, the bad ones, or the self-destructive ones…it’s surprisingly harder to stand up than it is to fall down. I’m sharing Kyle’s post DEMON for the very reason that I struggle daily with my own demons and it’s always comforting to know I am not alone. Equally so, to have a friend who can bear the naked truth of the dark side of some of our choices yet show there is light to be found…IF we are willing to look. Thank you Kyle.
they’re a bunch of fucking natives, and they spout all this hippie shit about self-discovery and journeys into my soul and what-not. i nod politely and agree, but just so as to be polite. i don’t want to offend them, but its all a load of crap as far as i’m concerned. i’m here for the trip of my life. i’ve heard about these mushrooms, ever since i started taking drugs. the most powerful hallucinogenic on the planet. the trip of a lifetime. they are legendary and until now, i wasn’t even sure they existed at all.
i look at the pile of goo the old woman spits onto the plate. i understand why she has to chew the mushrooms first. she has been doing this for years, and there are enzymes in her saliva that will break down the mushrooms and prevent me from vomiting too much. novices have…

I was working on a post this morning, having to do with the tons of fun in the sun trying to sell a house in today's market (yeah, right), when as often happens, a short sidestep away from the center line resulted in being led down another dirt road. But that's life, especially my life, … Continue reading For the Love of a Damned Good Conversation
