Flowers: Feeding our friends’ cats. Raoul really likes the pill pockets he gets. From earlier – my tiara pic from the virtual Coco LJ gathering: Poor woozy Willow post dental cleaning. She’s 100% recovered now, btw. But boy that night was tough. This was later on in the night when she was actually doing a little better. We made a … Continue Reading →

We had a smallish but delightful tea at the British Bell Tea Room in Newark, DE with the lovely Beth as host! The food was SO good. This soup was amazing: Those little chocolate cakes? Delicious. Beth instructed us to eat it all in one amazing bite, so we all did. There might have been encouragements of “just shove it … Continue Reading →

This is from Egypt and is 1000 years old! So is this! I have lots more pics of the textiles and of the captions – and of … Continue Reading →

So when I visited Katie in Cleveland, we went to the Rock Hall again. I think I could just camp out permanently at that place. There is always so much to see – and they do change the exhibits up so while some things were the same (and I tried to mostly not photograph the same things I did last … Continue Reading →

So I went through my little record collection – stuff from my parents and a few things of my own, including a box of 45s I got at a garage sale as a kid. Willow helped: The box of 45s really is gold though – check out some of the awesomeness. BTW, an identical 45 of Help! is in the … Continue Reading →

Sunflower: Doug and I managed one more dinner with Amber before she left for Rhode Island. We went to the all the meat you can eat Korean BBQ place in Rockville. It was really fun. (Also, everytime I hear “Rockville,” I have a compulsion to quote the REM song… “Don’t go back to Rockville!” Then we went kayaking with Doug, … Continue Reading →

We’ve had a lot of exciting things going on with the Jame Webb Space Telescope here at NASA Goddard. A recent one was … Continue Reading →

Here’s what I’ve been up to for the first part of July. I helped out with a last minute G+ hangout for Google’s Maker Camp at work. Here’s our JWST speaker. The giant centrifuge at work that mostly gets used as storage: Moth: Kevin’s cat Raoul – amusing that he’s pillowing his head on the carpet, but has his body … Continue Reading →
