easter weekend geeky-ness

obviously easter is a faith and family holiday, and Sunday was spent doing just that, but Saturday I met my friends Sonia and Peg for dinner, and we spent the evening setting up these websites. Sonia and her husband are much more computer savvy than Peg and I, so we were getting all the help, starting from the very beginning.

it was somewhat surprising that we spent so long with just this, but we actually had alot of fun – and it’s obviously quite addicting.  Sonia sat between us on the couch, with Peg and me each using a laptop, and played with all the “ins” and “outs” of wordpress-blogging.

estate saleing

i love to go to estate sales in my town – Columbia. There’s a new one every couple of weeks in the spring. My friend, Miranda and I go together, as well as being rummage sale buddies

I love looking at things people have collected. But it’s kinda sad to see all the things that people thought were important in their lifetime being picked over by a group of strangers looking for finds and bargins.

fortunately for me, the fun out weighs the “ick” factor.

aggie vs. the squirrels

aggiewhat do you do when your dog is a cold-hearted killer, but her prey is a tree-climbing rat?

aggie, my dear one, can’t help herself. she sees a squirrel (or a rabbit, or mouse, even deer) she chases it and if she catches it, she kills it. But the thing is, this is not a food urge – she doesn’t eat her kill. She just wants the thrill of the hunt, chase and destruction of a life that was weaker and smaller than her.
on one hand I feel bad. on the other, she’s acting on instinct and it could (by some) be considered a service and pest control. Many people don’t really like squirrels which is her main prey. But some see just a cute little animal that’s killing another cute little animal – quite viciously, too.
