Two days in a row, we awoke to the most dreadful words you can hear on an Antarctic cruise: Wind speeds are at 30 knots, so ALL activities are CANCELLED. Such a sad, sad day. Inclement weather has such a way of destroying the best laid plans. The ship director was very fond of always […]

The Bastard Gods Series

They ran together, still holding hands as they ignored the stunned looks they got from the few denizens of Tralis that they encountered. Night was turning back to day, and a growing amber light eastwards highlighted the dull edges of the buildings as they raced in that direction. Behind them the clattering sound of soldiers […]

A new study shows that fecal bacteria from sewage are living in far greater quantities in near-shore sediments of the Hudson River than in the water itself. The river’s pollution levels are generally monitored based on samples of clear water, not sediments, so the findings suggest that people stirring up the bottom while wading, swimming […]

Peonies & Baldies

Hello to all beautiful people I hope I didn’t completely throw you all of with my last blog but the night I wrote that was a hard night and all the baby emotions hit me all at once. I’ve been doing really well with trying to keep my composure and not getting so blue when […]

Adventure Guild

Through The Bog   The group sleeps uncomfortably on the soft earth, surrounded by the sounds of the dark forest around them. Insects chittering, frogs calling and answering, and unknown heavy shapes overhead in the tree canopy, rustling leaves as they move about far above. Mathos keeps first watch with the elf, Kevin. The mage […]

Tyler With An 'O'

Tessandra arrived home around seven that night. She was gorgeous in her canary yellow dress with the lilies on it, her cute mid-length jean jacket, and high-calf winter boots. Her blonde hair shrouded her slender shoulders and her lips were rosy red, fit for passionate kisses. Rosemary was lying upon the couch in the living […]

I Just Read About That...

SOUNDTRACK: HALF WAIF-Tiny Desk Concert #803 (November 9, 2018). Nandi Rose Plunkett is a member of Pinegrove. She released albums as Half Waif, and when Pinegrove retreated for a time, she toured as Half Waif.  I wanted to see her but didn’t have the opportunity. I was under the impression that her shows were very […]

Have you seen the infographic go around social media, about ice thickness? It features various size objects standing on ice, and how thick that ice must be to support that mass. It’s an amusing reminder to be safe—and it came to mind as I fell though ice this past weekend. (OOOPS!). At Long Spur Habitat […]

Sub Sole Nil Novi (Nothing New Under the Sun)

Certain things can be done best on those days when the sun rises over a heavy frost—like today.  This would be a good morning to tug on my high boots and wade into the briars and vines around my garden’s perimeter with a shovel.  If I embarked upon the same mission at warmer times of […]

You might have noticed a lot of spam recently when myself & Orla planned a spontaneous trip to the wonderful Hollywood Horse & Pony Trekking Center.  There is no better way to change the scenery for the horses with a nice relaxing trail ride through the Wicklow mountains & of course the unforgettable river! Our […]

Shawn Saying Something...

After twelve weeks of infantry training, training consisting of sprinting up lowland foothills and crawling through sloppy mud, of wading through thick swamps and muck-filled streams, of marching with fully loaded packs and her weapon raised above her head until her shoulders are numb and her legs feel like wet noodles, Anna learns a surprising […]

Refind Creations

It’s a glorious day to be Refind Creations when I get to drive in the pouring buckets of rain to get some barn windows from a barn built in the late 1800s! After two days of back and forth messaging with a sweet lady we finally connected and made a plan for me to head […]
