2010 Happy New Year!

2010-I am telling you now- you BETTER be a good year!

New Year's Eve Blue Moon

Tonight is New Year's Eve and a Blue Moon. 2009 was a strange year. It started out really very good for me, until about September when chaos ensued.  Today, the last day of 2009 things in my own life anyway, appear to be stabilizing. As for the state and nation. . .  well that is a different story altogether.  Here's to 2010 and hopes that we will all recover our sense of balance and grace.

I LOVE this- The Gashlycrumb Tinies


I LOVE this- California

Average daily temp in the Winter  65-70, Average night time temp 40-55. Cold to us native Californians yes, but some of the best weather in the world! I LOVE California!

Carousel Lovers Unite

Did you know that there is a National Carousel Association? I didn't either. Until I was doing a little research for my photos of the Carousel at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and The Carousel at the Santa Cruz boardwalk. You can get to the National Carousel Associations webpage HERE  and you can look at my photos at the November Obscura blog. There is a link button on the right side of this blog near the top.

I LOVE this- Sherlock Holmes

Seriously LOVED this movie. Can't wait for the sequel!

Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve. I have the greatest memories of childhood christmases. I hope you do to!

This has to change

I consider myself a pretty strong person, but sometimes, with certain people and situations I just do not know what to do, or say or suggest anymore. This situation lays heavy on my heart and mind.  I can not keep doing this for you, it is taking a big toll on me.
 You are going to have to step up and take charge of your own circumstances. It has been going on for far too long and I just don't think that you are quite the victim of circumstance that you portray yourself to be. You are very intelligent and very capable and I think that you need to put every bit of effort that you can muster into improving the situation.
You are so much more than this and there IS a solution and you CAN succeed! I don't think you have really pushed for a resolution, because it has been too easy for you not to. My resources have limits and I am going to have to make some changes. I hope I  have not been taken advantage of, because I have acted out of love and kindness.

New Grange and the Winter Solstice

How cool is this? AMAZING I SAY!

Newgrange (Irish: Sí an Bhrú) is a passage tomb of the Brú na Bóinne complex in County Meath. It is one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world, and indeed the most famous of all Irish prehistoric sites. Newgrange was built in such a way that at dawn on the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, a narrow beam of sunlight for a very short time illuminates the floor of the chamber at the end of the long passageway

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC, meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates, it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predatesStonehenge by about 1,000 years.
In the Neolithic period, Newgrange continued as a focus of some ceremonial activity. New monuments added to the site included a timber circle to the south-east of the main mound and a smaller timber circle to the west. The eastern timber circle consisted of fi…

Fractured Fairy Tale

Remember this? I never missed the Fractured Fairy Tales on the Rocky & Bullwinkle show as a little girl.


Yesterday, Jeff tore out the old sink and cabinet in our tiny under the stairs bathroom. Discussing paint we decided to go with 2 red walls, leaving the ceiling, mirror wall and back wall white.  I love the results of a freshly painted room but don't like to do house painting really.

 Each time I do it I say to myself- ugh how did you talk yourself into this? Well anyway, I have 2 coats on already- as it is a very small bathroom. We should have the whole thing in and done by the end of the week ( knock on wood)

Eartha Kitt- Love Her!
