Jacks Reigning Champion

This week my extended family on my mom’s side are all together at my grandparents for a family vacation/reunion. As is traditional in my family, today we had a series of games and competitions organized by my mom and aunt. Among them was a double elimination tournament of Jacks.

Oakdale Omega-3 Brown Eggs

I’ve heard on the radio quite a lot of times that Oakdale omega-3 brown eggs are supposed to taste better and be better for you. At Costco, they are not terribly more expensive than ordinary eggs, so I figured I’d give them a try. I bought some, but didn’t use them initially and ended up […]

My New Blog

As a few of you may have noticed, my blog has been here only intermittently this week—especially this weekend. I’ve been working on building a new theme and have broken my website a number of times. Now it’s ready to go, browser compatible, and up reliably. So this is the official launch of my new […]
