Radio Nowhere

It’s 9:00 am and I have already done two loads of laundry and put them away; made pizza dough; washed a load of dishes; swept the stairs and floor; and finally filed paperwork on my desk and put the files in Rob’s amazing cabinet. I also unpacked a box of books, including classics like The […]

My former boss gave me a very generous gift certificate to the Ledford House, where I recently met my friend Jim for a drink in the bar, and taking Megan out to dinner on her birthday seemed like the perfect use for it. It was also a perfect day to be at the restaurant, which […]

Not content to create the beautiful shelving unit/cabinet (shouldn’t there be a better word for this?): as well as the original shelving unit (aka the project that started it all): Rob also felt that the masterpiece needed lighting, so I could see what was on the shelves and in the cabinet. He found an old […]
