She has been working on this for the last few days. She uses a ‘modern’ protractor to draw the circles. All the rest is freehand and her own design. She has been working on this for the last few days.

She is very SHY of her work. When she is finished she squirrels it away. She is not happy that I photograph her work but she knows that it is the price she has to pay for being my daughter. I have offered to buy this painting.

How much do you think it is worth?

I offered her $5. She wanted $10, then changed her mind and said $15. What would YOU pay, though she will not sell it to anybody but I and I dare not sell it!

Today Is ‘Michaelmas Day’ 2018 — Happy Michaelmas, Enjoy Your Goose.

Since I am not into angels this is really not my thing — though I am always happy to eat goose (even once, 40-years ago, in Thailand, eating swan thinking it was duck).

But, when I hear ‘Michaelmas’ it does bring back memories — now filtered by decades of time. As some of you know I had a very traditional British upbringing, including Public (i.e., Private, fee-paying) School and British Universities. At Mill Hill, in particular, ‘Michaelmas’ was always used to denote the Fall (i.e., Sept. to Dec.) term. I associate that with Rugby.

So, it crossed my mind that I should share with lovely, quite British tradition with some of you — as a de facto ambassador for the Brits.

Enjoy.

If you are into Angels this is YOUR DAY.

Wonder whether geese know of angels

Teischan Back Using The Power Saw — With Aplomb.

Click to access May 2018 post.



I showed her how to use this power saw back in May. She cut a LOT of wood that day — for shelves in her room — and got the knack of it. She also felt comfortable. She didn’t need to cut anymore wood until today — yet again for shelves. This time I just set it up, checked it was OK and handed it over. Had to help her a few times but she did 95% of it on her own. I am glad.

Also glad the saw is getting used. I got it last year when I did the deck railings. Haven’t really had a need for it since, other than her projects.

Hula Hoop Magic With 5 Hoops — 20 Second Video.

by Anura Guruge

Spur of the moment. Was not planned. I was out taking my daily photos when I caught her practising. She does not let me take too many pictures. So, I snapped 19 of these quickly. She is using 5 hoops. Maybe 6. She has another one coming. In total she has about 8 or 9. Maybe more.

Decided that stitching them into a quick, 20-seconds video was the best way to share them.

Enjoy.

Went to Lowes looking for Greenhouse window and oil-based driveway sealer. But, you couldn’t escape the Halloween stuff. Cute. Couldn’t resist taking some pictures. I actually thought I took more. I will have to go back, but per my calculations I have 6 more week.s

Cheese Is Said To Be ‘Good’ For You — Much To My Relief.

I saw this article yesterday and it made me smile. I adore CHEESE. I can live on cheese for many days on end and have done so too. But, I worry that it is not that good for I.

This article claims otherwise.

Ironically, with my dreaded, annual physical coming up (where my doctor, each year, expresses much surprise that I am still alive) I had cut back drastically on the cheese. I even stopped buying cheese much to the amusement and bemusement of a young lady at our local supermarket who always expects me to order cheese.

Well, I had to share this with you. Hope it helps.
