Today, Lonestar Found Her Home
Published on Sunday, February 5, 2012 by You may remember the biggest geocache fail ever?  The fail is no more.  As a matter of fact, the fail resulted in the best geocache ever! Indeed, today my daughter and I hiked our way through the “Level Four Difficulty” terrain to the scene of the crime.  The geocache that yes, I RAN OVER. First, my daughter checked to see what people had already written in t...
Japanese Dog Tags From World War Two
Published on Monday, January 30, 2012 by It began with my good friend insisting I listen to the book on CD, “Flags of our Fathers.” Me:  “Will it make me cry?  Am I going to hate it?  How hard is it to listen to?” My Friend:  “Just listen to it.” In other words, “It’s your history.  It’s real.  Step up.” Step up I did.  I’m not sure how many people pulled up to me over the ne...
Porta Potty Prank
Published on Friday, January 27, 2012 by You want to know a really great practical joke that you can play on someone who is using a porta potty?  You wanna? First, find a rock.  One that will go in to a hole like this one.  You can find these holes on the back of most porta potties. Now, sneak behind the porta potty while someone is doing his or her business.  Make sure you are holding your roc...
Best Geocaching Cache Fail EVER
Published on Monday, January 23, 2012 by It was only a few weeks ago when we stumbled upon out first geocache.  I believe that made us “geomuggles.” Out of curiosity, we purposely hunted for another.  From there, we have discovered geocaching caches camouflaged as coral, trees, logs and even a spider. I cannot tell you who said it.  But it was soon said.  “I know!  Let’s make our own geocache!...
Homemade Peanut Butter Is Not Worth It
Published on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 by Or is it? My boss brought a trash bag full of raw, dried peanuts to work.  "I know!  I'll make homemade peanut butter!"  One googled recipe and 30 minutes later, I soon found myself with a baking pan full of homemade roasted peanuts. Alton Brown's homemade peanut butter recipe says preparation time is only five minutes.  Oh really?! Once the peanuts w...
What Animal Parts Are In YOUR Refrigerator?
Published on Friday, January 13, 2012 by You may remember the last time I talked about my refrigerator.   How many of you have ever found blood in your fridge?  Blood that is pooling beneath a mystery bag of meat? This week my refrigerator runneth over.  Behold exhibit A. I can’t tell you who put these skulls in my refrigerator or why.  But I can tell you where they ended up.  Outside for a photo...
Asteroids, Fossils and Fish
Published on Sunday, January 8, 2012 by While sitting on the shores of Crane Lake at Suffolk’s Lone Star Lakes, it is hard to believe the ocean’s salty water once covered the area.  The story is almost unbelievable. Thirty-five million years ago, a two-mile-wide asteroid plummeted to the earth.  Its impact caused a series of tsunamis that carried the ocean’s water to inland areas that were once dry...
What Was Your Favorite Christmas Gift?
Published on Monday, January 2, 2012 by Mine, hands down, came from my brother.  It was unique.  It was personal.  It was well thought out.  It was COOL. Imagine pulling one of these things at a time out of a box.  Above?  Catnip, lemon balm and chamomile for infusions.  I also got two tea dippers, one for me and one for my daughter.  But even better?  A HAND WRITTEN page explaining each.  The ...
Ollie’s Receipt Is A Pain In The…
Published on Tuesday, December 27, 2011 by Have you ever looked over one of your receipts and thought, “HUH?!” I sometimes wonder who creates receipt abbreviations.  Imagine the power.  You have the license to be creative in a format that most won’t read.  The world is your abbreviated oyster. The writer of this particular abbreviation now holds my utmost respect.  One can only guess what was happe...
Cheerleader Kills Shark With Bare Hands
Published on Sunday, December 18, 2011 by And a knife.  For real. I’m not sure how we got back in to fishing.  It’s probably due to my older son’s love for the sport.  Towards the end of the summer, we began to surf fish in Corolla, and it has done nothing but escalate from there. Would I begin a fishing spree in the spring though?  No, that is too easy.  Typical me, it all starts to happ...
Reindeer Truck SCORE!
Published on Saturday, December 10, 2011 by I got it.  I actually GOT IT!  I got a picture of the Reindeer Truck! For two weeks, I have seen this truck driving through our area.  But I’ve never been near enough to take a picture.  I see him ahead and he turns.  He closes in behind me and stops at a light.  Indeed, this mystery reindeer truck is harder to photograph than Big Foot! Until yesterday. Jus...
Not For Your Itouch
Published on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 by You have spent so much on your Itocuh, it only makes sense to give it the proper protection! ...
