Sh*t Happens

Santa brought us basement full of sewage this Christmas. I guess we were bad. Really, a lump of coal would have sufficed. But I guess the old boy was gunning for us. So we’re ringing in the new year with new pipes. Fortunately the guys digging up our pavement didn’t find any bones or archeological relics, or else some historic commission or a poltergeist would have prevented us from using the facilities in peace. It’s nice to be back in the 19th century again – we have functioning plumbing. Happy New Year!

Who Wore It Best?

Trash or Treasure

I spied this little gem on 10th & Carpenter Streets a few weeks ago, someone put this out on the curb for the trash men . I believe it was Versace’s inspiration for the iconic green dress J Lo wore at the 2000 Grammy Awards Show!

I always like to add something a bit unusual into my Christmas cookie boxes. These butterscotch blondies are dense, chewy, and rich. A bowl and a wooden spoon are all the equipment you need to mix up this batch of butterscotchy goodness! Continue reading
