I was off by a month. My bad.

When I started writing online, way back in 2004, my blogging was a combination of minutiae designed to keep a then-deployed husband in the loop on day-to-day life at home.

Say it with me… “Duh…”

Too disgusted by most of the news today, I leave you instead with link sausage. I’ll get back to writing again sometime this weekend, before I lose any more details on CC26. I already managed to forget which day I bought the shawl… Take the Tums first. Trust me… Mr. President, the war isn’t about Read More …
