Brad Margus and the A-T Children’s Project

Meet my friend Brad Margus. Brad was in our wedding (can it really be almost 23 years ago?). CNN did a profile on him last year, detailing his absolutely amazing fight to save two of his four children from a crippling disease. David and I have lost touch with Brad lately, but have continued to pray over his kids and follow his path to find a cure. This is a great video demonstrating what happens when abilities and skills meet…

Looking for a lake cottage.

This quote was found in an old copy of Real Simple magazine. It inspires me with its simplicity and truth. I'm showing it too you as it is found on my inspiration board in my back hall. The page is torn a smidge, and as you can see it is not hanging straight. But when my eyes land on it I remember what is truly important in life. A perfect day includes space and time for new discoveries inside of…

Coffee Cam… internet icon and tribute to coffee!!!

I read today that one of the first live cams on the internet was a coffe pot in the computer lab at the University of Cambridge. It lived from 1993 to 2001 as an easy way for the office geeks in residence to check the status of the coffee pot! My kind of people...gotta have their coffee and don't want to waste any steps getting there. The camera became an internet sensation in its day, and when they turned it…

Another Year of Television Reruns?

The year 2008 may go down in history as the year of television reruns. First we had the writer's strike which forced us all to readjust our viewing habits. As soon as the strike was over it seemed we were into the summer siesta season with a choice between B-grade new shows or reruns of our favorites. And now there are rumors of an actor's strike putting fear into all of our television-viewing hearts. With all of that, it sometimes…

Let’s meet for coffee

I saw a new blurb on Fox News this morning saying that for the first time ever, Starbucks is planning on closing some of its United States locations in the coming year. While I realize that as far as business models go this might make sense, in my heart of hearts I was saying "Not in my backyard! Don't touch any of my spots!" Each of the Starbucks in my neighborhood have a different sense of community. Different people are…

Garbage Men Rock My World!

  Hanging out at Randy Elrod's place for Watercooler Wednesday, I decided to write a quick note about something which I actually feel very deeply. Garbage men rock my world. Before you think I've gone off my rocker from too much Iced Doubleshots with Espresso (which I have, by the way), let me explain. Twice a week I wheel the grossest stuff in my life down to the end of my driveway. I have great wheeled trash cans, easy-tie Glad…
