World War 2 Bombing Runs Changed the Weather Over England


I just wanted to share this little snip-it primarily for the comments section of the post. I just can’t believe the back and forth bickering going on. Regardless of if climate change is/is not happening, I ask you: What’s it going to hurt to be a little more green? Really, is recycling the plastic soda bottle, or using a water filter and refillable bottle really that much of a hassle that you have to complain? I say just do it anyway… end of discussion.

Things I Remember…


ATM Keypad 1

I am really good at remembering numbers… but not the actual digits. What I actually remember is the pattern the numbers make on the key pad. If the keypad is laid out differently than on a computer keyboard or on the phone, I have issues with plugging in the right digits.

Iron Man Rocks High School Graduation – Maybe Not?


I don’t really know what to say about this… either this is the lamest or the coolest high school graduation ever.  I can’t decide.

… and yet the reality is that they (college freshman) are horribly ill-equipped for the rigors of academic life here in the United States, not to mention how behind they are compared with other industrialized nations.  Yep, that’s what you get for rewarding everyone equally regardless of mediocrity.

I have no words…


This video just speaks for itself.

Thanks to Rocky Thompson from Backcountry.com‘s blog: The Goat for posting this littly tid-bit.

But seriously, there has to be a better way to make your point… seriously

Nice to see home making national news for something other than drug arrests and knuckle heads in the news. Of course this isn’t good news either.

Which Plate? Help me choose my personal license plate…


In case you didn’t know, I’m like really really into knitting now.  Almost to the point where it is a compulsion. Keeping that in mind, and since I’ve also been a pixie for most of my adult life (pixie has been a part of my user name, or computer handle for you old school folks) I have decided to possibly blend the two together.  Keeping this in mind, here are the two license plates that I’ve decided to pick from.  I would like some feedback, so let me know which one you like best!

Plate A: Pixie Knits

Plate B: Knit 1, Yarn Over, Slip Slip Knit
