Wow! That was fast! New car in about four hours.

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the local Audi dealer, ostensibly to look at a car I might be interested in buying.  It turned out that the dealer had exactly the model and color that I wanted.  So, we took a test drive around the neighborhood, and I decided to buy it.  Since our Dictator has …

Audience Favorite on my Rumble Video site

I just had to share this short video with my blog followers.  I have been horse-crazy since childhood, and wherever I am, if there are horses I watch them.  We got an eyeful at the Washington State Fair last weekend.  You should love watching these young ladies preparing for their competition.

Might there be a use for a smartphone in Feudal-era Japan?

Hubby first introduced me to Japanese Anime before we were married, and now I'm hooked too.  We watched the entire series of Inu Yasha, where the modern girl Kagome Higurashi time-travels through her grandfather's sacred well, and ends up in the medieval period.  She has all sorts of adventures with her dog-half-demon friend Inu Yasha, …
