My Deaf Dog My husband and I have been having a debate recently about our elderly dog, Ranger. I said she was going deaf. My husband’s (incorrect) argument is that she was just a snob who has been ignoring us. Per our weekend visit to the vet, it’s official. Ranger is going deaf. I found…Details
Book Review: Sound Man, Glyn Johns Because I’ve started writing a book about a family that includes a rock and roll sound man, I found this autobiography of an authentic rock and roll sound man, Sound Man, by Glyn Johns, sound man to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and many other big names and famous…Details
Home Improvement Junkie Do any of you get inspired by home and garden reality shows to make some changes? An old show called Design on a Dime made me challenge myself to redo the kitchen for under $1,000, and I met the challenge with just pennies to spare. Other shows caused me to paint over…Details

Can anyone meet me there? I would love to say hello in person.
On a Personal Note
This is a call for prayers for my husband. He’s never sick, and he’s my rock, but he’s sick now.
Where Did They Go? We all have our internet friends, people we connect with that in real life we would never know. Sometimes I wonder how I would know if any of them have died. One of the best writing blogs, if not the best, that I’ve ever seen is/was JadeVarden.com. Good writer and great…Details
“… In Death” Series, J.D. Robb Currently, I’m reading the latest book in the “In Death” series by J.D. Robb, Brotherhood in Death. There are at least 50 books in the series. I’ve read them all in order and only disliked two of them. Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb) is a prolific writer, writing this series…Details
