Nathan would love it. He enjoyed being an engineer for trick or treating last weekend and I hope he likes it again tomorrow. Wow, what kind of theme could we do? Guardians of the Galaxy? Nathan could be Rocket.

You can't hang these on glass. They need a solid door.

Remember my post about dreaming the word "Sohonomish" -- later discovering it must be "Snohomish" and must be related to the county in Washington State -- and not having any idea at the time what it was? Turns out Snohomish... Continue reading

When I found out that the tickets for Foo Fighters were starting at a mere $50 (the same price I paid for Rolling Stones 20 years ago), it was difficult to say no. When my brother-in-law Scott sent me a... Continue reading
