Monsters, Inc.

Monsters, Inc.
Monsters, Inc. Monsters is a cute movie. I’ll pick it and let it run on commercial tv any time I see it going by. One day I saw it on Telemundo and thought nothing of it. I can handle some Spanish animation. Right? Not so much. I quickly realized that I could not read the characters lips at all in Spanish. I came to the conclusion that we ten [...]

Too political

Too political
Too Posts Political You said I had a lot of political posts. As if whatever the number – it was too many. I was surprised. So I decided to count down to the picture of me at the clinic which I wanted you to see. You had to scroll to find it. There’s a Sunday post for the Packers. It says yay. There’s a post about tell if thi [...]

On/Off, Incremental, or …

On/Off, Incremental, or …
A great many times having a clear answer is preferable. The search continues. I have noticed that, more often than not, there is gray area between the black and white. The gray area. Between. Meanwhile. During. When I start to look at ‘it’, whatever it is, I begin to see that the flow seems to be the whole of it. Fixed and static endpoints mi [...]

The Work

The Work
“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.” ― Byron Katie, Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life T [...]

Vertical Garden Chain Link Fence and ...

Vertical Garden Chain Link Fence and ….
I’d long thought about a pergola supported by the old swing set. This morning I am all hopped up on the idea of vertical gardening. Chain link fence propped up on the swing and away we go. Next … what containers will be supported by the fencing? Stay tuned. If we know me … and I think we do … some experimental variety [...]

A Thriving Sustainability?

A Thriving Sustainability?
A representation of joy; an icon I create over and over after having read Presence by Amy Cuddy. We talk and hear about sustainability. The subject matter may typically include environmental, economic, and educational systems.  Sustainability represents the bare minimum and sometimes seems as if we are unable to reach such a state. Outside of [...]

David @ Pfister

David @ Pfister
The Pfister Hotel 3/3/15 Similar to the Artist-in-Residence program, The Pfister Hotel selects a writer a year to act as Narrator. That person spends time in the lobby chatting it up with guests, snaps a smiling face or two, and writes a couple blog posts a week. Last year when I applied I got an email telling me I did not make the cut. Whoev [...]

MicroGreens

MicroGreens
I spent the morning learning about MicroGreens from Farmer Tony, Hillery, and 30 other folks from far flung places such as; Sister Bay, Mequon, Appleton, Chicago, Houghton MI, Caledonia, Waukesha, Elm Grove, Sussex, Manitowoc, and Stoughton, in no particular order. There were several teachers looking to incorporate this into their curriculum [...]

Lorem Ipsum Brunch

Lorem Ipsum Brunch
We were thinking about a quiche or something similar for breakfast today. I remembered seeing frittatas at Melrose close to home here. I went online to check their menu and the typos nearly cracked me up. There are plenty to choose from – most of which are probably simply cut-and-paste fonts problems that went unchecked. But the lunch m [...]
