Last week a great gray owl from Canada visited Middleton. My photos are horrible, taken with my flip phone, but you can easily see that this was a huge bird... about 24 inches high. In the bottom photo the bird is in the ceenter of the photo on the far left fence post. There were always 20 - 30 people gawking at the bird.. and they came from Illinois and Iowa just to take a look. I walked 3 blocks.

Needing a blanket for an upcoming visitor... I debated where to go to get one. The obvious choice was Target, but I hate the fact that all their stuff is made in China and all looks the same... Just not my style. A neighbor offered to lend me a blanket, but the challenge was there and I couldn't resist the "easter egg hunt mentality." Off I went to my local thrift store. The above afgan fit the twin bed, was priced at 4.00 and washed and dried nicely (not to mention all the colors). I love it!!! Most likely it was made here in the USA, too!!

The darker kimchi is made with bok choy/carrots/green onions. The lighter one is made with napa cabbage/carrots/green onions. It is sitting on the counter... fermenting. In 24 hours it will go in the refrigerator for months. Six months for the napa cabbage one, one month for the bok choy. I love this stuff and eat it all the time!!!

On a recent trip to RI I was struck by how affected the landscape remains from Sandy and now Nemo. The face of Wakefield is changing. Seems like most of the very old trees are either down or looking very worn out, with broken branches and unsightly silhouettes. Unless folks begin to replant the town will have a different look. Seeing the beach in such disrepair saddens me.... but perhaps is a true reminder of the frailty of life...
Counting down at the Magic Kingdom....
How long is the line there???
If you go to Downtown Disney.... don't miss the T-Rex Cafe
Who has the biggest smile???
They are sitting right behind the Captain... This is the boat that went from our resort to Downtown Disney
