Mr. & Mrs. Stone – 7/6/12

And for those who weren’t sure, that was me doing the harmony with John Denver on the 2nd verse, and both melody and harmony on the last verse of the Father Daughter dance. And the DJ totally talked right over the end, which was probably a good thing 🙂 Listen to it here Dexter dancing […]

1 Locking Ring

The hot tub is up and running as of Thursday evening. Christmas morning, Elif finally got a chance to try the hot tub. At some point right before or soon after she got it, the locking ring on the filter split, spraying water all over the area under the hot tub. GFI worked and tripped […]

Culinary Fail

The line between the idea and the successful implementation of a culinary thought is pretty thin. WHDH’s The Dish segment last week had a cheddar fondue served in a pumpkin that looked delicious. I tried it Sunday. First I used too much garlic (4 cloves instead of 2); not sure why. It smelled really good […]

White Christmas – goodies, goodies, goodies

Link to pics Well we got about 7 or 8 inches of snow last night and this morning. It was light and fluffy and the Ariens had no problem at all with it. They were predicting anywhere from 4 to 12 for us so we made sure we had all the ingredients for goodie […]
