After a year of lockdowns and cancellations, a change of scenery was a balm. A trip to the vast, ancient lands of the western US appealed to us – a place that stood before this bout of human suffering and cannot be canceled, mitigated, or sheltered in place.
Don enjoys his freshly made burger and fries and homemade root beer and the opportunity to pull out pictures of his pride and joy enough to make that risk. He’s earned that right.
We made it to June. Collective sigh. Mankind saved the bees. Those who didn’t mow in May can sit back in grateful appreciation of their gallant efforts and wait for the next opportunity to save something. No Mow May, which began in the UK and was heralded by Appleton, Wis. has taken off across the… Continue reading No Way No Mow May
Delayed side effects are the chief concern among the vaccine hesitant. The “burden of proof to demonstrate that it is safe and effective must fall on those who offer it.” Questions should be welcome. Anxiety must not be shamed.
The Great Lakes are sometimes called the inland seas. They will rock you and roll you, toss you and turn you. They will wreck your ship if it gets in the way.

I didn’t know where to begin but Bernadette does. On Day 1 we learn the parts of the ukulele and things we’ll need for the course. We are given a to do list, a guide to practice, and how to build the habit. Best, we’re given access to the .pdf to print out all the “study guides” for each day.
