“…the next guy that says, ‘Hijinx’, gets pistol whipped…” So, little Gracie barked a couple of times in the night -not her going out bark, more her, “there is a skunk I want to play with” bark, or her “there is a fox making noise” bark, or even her “a squirrel is eating something out of the large paper bag … Continue reading “Hijinx”
The crocus are in full bloom and the daffodils have shown their green face, but they are predicting a nor’easter for this weekend. For those of you that don’t know what a nor’easter is (from Wikipedia): A nor’easter (also northeaster; see below) is a macro-scale cyclone occurring along the upper East Coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada.

I’m starting to wrap my head around WordPress – and believe me, with a head this thick that takes awhile! At any point, I love using Font-Awesome (btw – they don’t have a specific icon for their font-awesome product, I think they use fa-flag .

Whether appropriate or not, it is the weekend and Bo enjoys kickin’ back with a brew or two (just kidding, we only give him a sip now and then.) So, you’ve met Bo, but I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce you to the rest of our crew. As the weeks go by I’ll dig into the wayback … Continue reading “Introductions”

Right now I’m using conventional hosting through Green Geeks and through StartLogic. … Continue reading “What sort of hosting is best?”
Namaste! Sabine pointed out to me that giving everyone a link to the USDA site would be handy – and she was right! Once you navigate there look for the “Enter ZIP code:” box at the upper left.
Namaste! Our site is still dormant from the winter, but it is sure to have green shoots of wisdom pushing up toward the sun soon. We plan on having an “Ask the Gardener” section, as well as a lot of helpful hints about things like identifying invasive species. In the meantime, sign up in the sidebar to receive gardening hints, … Continue reading “Welcome to the Garden!”

Most times I’ll focus on what I’m currently learning both from the perspective of a student and an educator of several decades. 2. Several weeks ago I read an interview of Lori … Continue reading “Which CMS?”
Meet Bo, our sicilian miniature donkey. Unfortunately for him he ended up growing an inch over breed standard at 32″, so they gelded him and we bought him as a companion for my mustang.
No, this post isn’t about Dylan, just a reflection on my life at the moment. I have worked in biomedical research for several decades. I got my doctorate at Harvard in virology. I followed that up with a post-doc before getting a position as an Instructor. After a few years I moved to Yale University ( the dark … Continue reading “The Times They Are a-Changin…”
