The lack of snow this winter is making me a bit stir crazy.Cabin fever is setting in but at least the days are getting longer.Meanwhile I find myself playing word games lately.Winter in New England usually means all sorts of activities that keep one in shape from skiing, to skating and even shoveling snow.This year's mild winter seems to bring nothing but light snow, rain and above freezing temperatures.Good thing I ran out back in October when we had a very early snow fall and... continue reading

Just this past week, I posted up a fun political Tshirt at Zazzle, one of the POD (print on demand) services on line. It got a Today's Best Award. Two days later, I had to remove it. Why? I spelled a word wrong!!! Apparently my error had gotten past the editors to ;-) Three words in the Tshirt had Capital Letters in a different color than the main text.
