Saw this on The Meta Picture and it really made me smile. I don't think I've seen a tap like this in decades. Of course I don't spend a lot of time in other people's backyards looking at their spigots... Continue reading

We have a wonderful cleaning woman. I love to see how she leaves Harper's room. This was particularly fun. Also on Friday we got our chimney swept for the first time in about five or six years. We don't do... Continue reading
