Parkhurst Road Trip

Sunday, February 17. Up early and heading toward the track before 9:30. We park in Lot 7, a humongous field that is primarily used for race parking. They shuttle us over to big yellow school buses that zip down a powerline right-of-way and drop us off across the road from the speedway. So quick and […]

France boasts a strong (excuse the cheesy pun) history and prides itself on the consumption of fromage, especially accompanied by the perfect vin.

The random number generator picked Frond for my second encoded word post of this month, suggested by Lara, one of my Patreon supporters. I usually develop a complicated knitting stitch pattern for each word, but I also like to provide a basic chart for any craft that’s worked on a grid: beads, cross stitch, whatever. […]

I was recently invited to try the new Vegicheese Burger from Hudsons at their Green Point branch.

Branches: Cape Town: Claremont, Gardens, Green Point, Stellenbosch Johannesburg: Bedfordview, Hazelwood, Parkhurst Hudsons are the first chain of restaurants […]

The word I drew from my word hoard for this stitch pattern is Frond, suggested by Lara on Patreon. Spring is on the way where I am, and it’s nice to think about sprouting fronds. Each month, my Patreon backers have the chance to suggest words for me to encode as knitting stitches. I make […]

Adventures in Cemetery Hopping

After our Iowa Adventure, Christi and I were both ready to get back to Omaha. But since we were near southwest Nebraska, I asked for one last cemetery hop. Nebraska City’s Wyuka Cemetery (not to be confused with the one in Lincoln) was on my list of places to visit and it was on our […]

In honor of Julie’s birthday, we rented a pontoon boat at the Highland Park Fish Camp and went fishing on the St. John’s River for the afternoon. This was a self guided trip. The cruise out to the river was spectacular with lush green river banks, a variety of shorebirds and our first gator sighting. […]

But under the heading: There are No Truly New Ideas, Girdler says he […]
