Naturally Dyed Eggs

NATURALLY DYED EGGS Now with updates! Natural Easter Egg Dyes In the Gilmore house there is no surer sign of Easter than onion skin boiled eggs.  I like them much more than the traditional store kit dyed kind because they have a subtle onion scent that lingers even after you peel them.  In fact sometimes …

141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Well, this is quite a step down. The Faux coverage is awful, continually interrupted for commercials and focusing only on favored breeds. It fully justifies my attention to the UConn Huskies 100th consecutive victory last night in a game at Gampel which was closer than the score would indicate. There are 5 teams that could …

Throwball Conference Championships

Just because I’m writing doesn’t mean I have anymore time than I told you about Friday. Tomorrow we are still traveling and posting (at least mine) will be non-existant. Also I’ll not attempt to live blog even the game I like as I’ll be too busy watching it and after it’s over I have a …

Throwball Divisional Playoffs: Steelers at Chiefs

Steelers looked damn good last week. Delayed by a morning ice storm it’s now dry as a bone and 33. I’ll be watching what I hope is only the season finale of Sherlock.
