White Christmas

The blizzard has stopped its blast, but the ghost of it remains. I wonder if I'll be able to get out of the driveway today? *shrug* Plenty of food and tea here, and sweet pups for which to exploit their warmth and cuddle factor.

Grandpa was responding well to treatment, and hopefully will pull through. :)


Talking to my brother yesterday, he told me a funny story. My sister-in-law has been feeding some rogue chickens that have appeared in their upscale Dallas neighborhood, and the neighbor next door is quite put out with the chicken poop on his deck and porch. He complained to my brother who told him that he would deal with the issue finally but could not take time at the present to do so, but would do a half-measure in the mean time. Brudder got an inflatable owl with a motion detector that hoots and eyes light up when anything comes near. Also, he put a little sign on a stake next to the owl reading "Owl Gore. Back off or I'll take away the internet."

Yeah, it runs in the family.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from another snow trapped celebrant!

I've been meaning to point you in the direction of a singer I think you'll like, based on the musical selections you've mentioned in the past.

Miss Li, a swedish artist who is getting a lot of exposure from an ipod commercial:

You can find most of her stuff on youtube. I think you'll like her!

Merry Christmas! A little of that white stuff goes a long way, doesn't it?

Merry Christmas, Phlegmmy!

Good to hear your grandpa's responding well!

Is your brother's "deal with the issue" going to involve an air rifle or a sack to capture, a chopping block and machete? Free-roaming chickens tend to be tougher than penned, but with the meat sweetened and a little extra fat from the grain, they'll make marvelous coq a vin.
