We left grandchildren and headed toward Nashville to fly back home to Massachusetts, but on our way to the airport spotted a railtrail on the map, quite near the highway off Rt. 24 in Murfreesboro.

Today was nearly perfect… I had a fairly okay day at school, and no plans. I was walking home when I heard my name, so I turned around and Calvin told me to get my ass in his car. We went to his house and had a little ~cooking party~. He cooked me a steak […]
I retraced my steps back to the old cabin in the woods, last evening- Through the close-clustered shrubberies of autumnal wildflowers, Waddling down slim brooks of untouched coffee of an old winter, Down the once oft-trodden weedy trail- Still a dead dull yellow, where we had stood a little too long Under mildewed boughs from […]

Interestingly, her presentation was slotted into the category, Truth! Carole is a journalist with The Observer and researcher with Cambridge Analytics, the organization […]
[ad_1] Like most die-hard Apple Macintosh fans, I was thoroughly skeptical of the switch to Intel processors and had been holding on upgrading my trusty MacBook in part because I was afraid to test out the Intel Chips.

SUNSET EXT., FOREST HIM and HER It was the kind of evening where the sun slipped beyond the horizon without fanfare. The sky was light, then dark, with no colours in between. “I miss sunsets. We haven’t had a good one in ages”, he said, pulling at the blades of grass under his shoes. Some […]

Accommodation: P-Hotels Oslo Grensen 19, Oslo, 0159, Norway *decent hotel in a great location, but definitely the bare minimum for a hotel!

Game of Thrones delivered one of its best episodes last night. It brought together characters new and old, setting the stage for the major battle in the next episode.
