Today in my third part of How to Order Vegan we’re going to cover some but likely not all, Indian food. There are so many types of Indian food that I doubt I could get it all. I mean the country does have a billion people in it so, probably... Continue reading

I went to this year’s Art in Bloom and of course, love being surrounded by the art and flowers. But it also sparked a curiosity as to where gardening came from and how it started. So I did a little poking around and found a few interesting bits. Gardening was... Continue reading

As I am working on a long blog post enjoy some snaps from this year's Macy's Flower show: America the Beautiful. It took place back in April. It wasn't quite as large of an exhibit as it has been but there was some neat things to see. Be back soon... Continue reading

I've been happily restocking my little ETSY shop with what I've decided is my contribution to the world of wearable oddities. I've used so many new types of materials. Well, not new actually, some are very old. New to me I suppose. Objects made with real scrimshaw bone fragments, replica... Continue reading

Going back through my travel posts as I've gotten completely off track with them: I realized that I never even posted my favorite place that I stayed in Costa Rica at the end of January this year. I had some genuine adventures in the jungles and on the wild beaches... Continue reading

I collect female action figures. This all really started when I couldn’t find Eowyn from the Lord of the Rings movies. I was more than a little miffed that there was finally going to be a sword wielding ass kicker in one of the biggest movies ever made and I... Continue reading

From Scott Kelly returning from a year on the ISS to Space X landing a rocket successfully, it’s a renewed and exciting time to keep your eyes turned upwards. I love visiting NASA facilities, any space related exhibits, museums, etc..I... Continue reading

A fair number of the last few superhero movies have a left a bad mark on my love for the genre. The rampant sexism is not helping. Even with Wonder Woman finally appearing in DC's latest disaster they couldn't help the "I thought she came with you" comment. And as... Continue reading

Last Thursday I stopped into the Casket Arts building in Minneapolis. I had not been there before. It's super cool. Filled with artist's studios and unique spaces. They were hosting a Unicorn Art show. The second one to happen there apparently. I am sad to say I missed the first... Continue reading

I've written about eating in Madison before, right here. The food is pretty great in this pretty great town. My most recent trip there a few weeks ago was no exception. I've been to the Green Owl Cafe in the past but I don't recall having had a dessert that... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, my friend took us to learn how to make vodka at Du Nord Craft Spirits. I've had cocktails here before but this is the first time I've gone on the tour. I really like their version of the Moscow Mule....onto what we learned that day! Lessons... Continue reading

I have been to Madison, Wisconsin many times at this point in my life. It's on the way to Chicago which tends to be a place Minnesotans go a lot for trips and shows and the like. Madison is a great little town. The Austin, Texas of the Midwest: oddball,... Continue reading

When I said I wanted to do my first craft show I really did not know what to expect. I tried not to hope for too much with the exception of myself getting a lot done. This got a bit sidelined with a serious elbow injury but somehow and with... Continue reading

For the first time this weekend I am hauling a bunch of things I've made and written to sell at the GeekCraft Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. I have never done a show other than an Open House in my own home. This will be a whole new experience. I have... Continue reading

I get asked a lot about how to eat vegan when I go to a restaurant. More often than not I suspect that being intimidated and simply not knowing what to ask keeps people from trying to make their diet more vegan-friendly for themselves. There is a fair amount of... Continue reading

There was nothing that could prepare me for the wild beauty of Corcovado National Park. Only accessible by boat from Drake Bay by way of the Pacific Ocean. Certainly it falls under The Adventure of a Lifetime category. Spotting creatures here and there and everywhere. Mushrooms growing in the hazy... Continue reading

These days I rarely know when Easter is occurring. Spring things start to show up in stores and then I realize Easter must be on it's way. I don't have any children nor do Christian Easter beliefs line up with my own belief system. But without fail every year I... Continue reading

Picking up where we left off takes us to the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. We went to stay at Poorman's Paradise Resort. This is a place only accessible by boat. We took a bus out to a tiny town that led us to Sierpe River where we climbed aboard... Continue reading

I stopped in at Rachel Girard's sculpture exhibit at Rogue Buddha. I actually hadn't been back to Rogue Buddha since we had our NYE event there about 8 years ago. I rather forgot what a little gem it is as I not only saw Rachel's incandescent creatures there was also:... Continue reading
