Guest Post: Gina Baynham

    I first came upon Corey‘s blog in 2007 accidentally as I sat in my kitchen in Australia helping my 7-year-old daughter to research a school project. The link Google brought me to was a story about gold bead necklaces  traditionally gifted to young girls in Marseille to mark special occasions as they grew up. I was captivated. For a brief moment I was unaware of my messy kitchen, the pile of laundry waiting to be done,  and young kids running around asking me to do things for them. I came b...

Choose growth

I was 18 when my dad passed away. In that too short but precious time, he imparted many lessons that continue to guide me today. As the oldest of three daughters, I became the de facto son, joining my dad in doing repairs, tinkering, and building stuff. He taught me how to use tools, repurpose materials, and employ the magic of duct tape. When something wasn’t working, Dad would say, “Use your head. We can figure this out.” That’s when we’d let go of whatever we’d been doing and start tryin...

8 Free Alternatives for Stuff That Cost Most People Money

I went to get the flu shot the other day, a trip I make once a year to keep not just me but those around me safer. And oh man I felt so sluggish afterward! I got the shot in the morning and I was only half functional for pretty much the rest of the day. The nurse said it’s normal to feel tired though and not something I needed to worry about. Luckily, I’m back to 100% now and everything seems to be a-ok. This year, we changed where we got the flu shot. We found out that our county’s health agen...

Obedience Test Results

Four days ago I posted a simple obedience test. I’m still getting more responses each day, but it looks like the patterns have become clear enough to share what I’ve learned thus far. The basic idea was that I commanded people who read that post to read 5 more articles from my website on that same day and then to send me feedback about their experience. They could choose to obey the command or not. Why the Obedience Test? It was a simple idea that popped into my mind at the time, and ...

  When the blogging universe was exploding into many points of light, I found my way to Corey’s blog. Her touching words and observations kept me coming back. Her story of Chelsea climbing into Sacha’s crib to give him a bottle when Corey was recovering from cancer surgery touched me deeply. An incredible family, a mother with such heart and love.     (Our front porch)   Like many Americans, I am drawn to things French. Unlike many Americans, the reason is that our Dad was a bombardier instruct...

How to Tell Awesome Stories to Your Kids

Since our kids were little, we’ve read to them every night before bed. Sometimes after we put the book we’re currently reading aside, I’ll also give them a bonus, impromptu storytelling session as I tuck them in. I just tell them a story that I conjure up on the spot. While Gus (age 10) has kind of aged out of it, Scout (age 7) still really enjoys hearing Dad’s imaginative yarns. I didn’t use any guides to come up with my stories, and instead just drew upon my years of consuming narratives i...

WHEN THE FROST IS ON THE PUNKIN" BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY

  ((Oddly enough, both my parents occasionally would quote a line or two from Riley's two most famous poems. This is the one Dad would quote; I'll post the other later this month I first posted this on 13Oct 2012))  We had the first frost of the fall season in parts of New England and it put me in mind  how Dad would  sometimes recite "When the frost is on the pumpkin...". That's the only part ofthe poem he'd say. I think he must have had to recite it in school when he was a kid ...

Easy No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas

You can keep your spooky ghosts and ghoulish goblins— give me all the pumpkins! Okay, okay… Honestly though, as much as I hate to say it— I’m really not the biggest fan of the pumpkin flavors that are so popular this season. But I think I can redeem myself in a world of squash-crazed bloggers with my utter adoration of the pumpkin itself. I mean, just check out my dining room in the image below! If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. When I was a kid, the only time I was allowed to use...

Happy Birthday Dad!

My father would have been 74 today. He passed away 30 years ago. I wonder what kind of old man he would have been. I regret that my daughter couldn't know her Grandpa. My father was a photographer. He shot all kinds of stuff. But his true talent was his photo stories. He took time to build relationships and get to know the people he was photographing. He cared. And this led to the success of his representations. I grew up with with his work, trapped in his darkroom, sometimes being an unwilling...

SCOTT GALLOWAY: Palantir can wrap itself in the flag all it wants. The company is still a s----y business that has never made money in 17 years.

Galloway says Uncle Sam should be advising Palantir. Arnd Wiegmann/Reuters Scott Galloway is a bestselling author and professor of marketing at NYU Stern. The following is his recent blog post and video, republished with permission. It originally ran on his blog, "No Mercy / No Malice." Galloway critiques Palantir, a data management software company cofounded by Peter Thiel, ahead of its IPO scheduled for late September.

Blue-collar rods and guns

  Stevens 311 from the 1970s reborn   Copyright 2020 Erik Helm   A concept of value…   At a gun show last year I lingered at a table where a vendor had on display and for sale a large collection of vintage hunting rifles and shotguns, and also a nice selection of old split bamboo fly rods. As I fingered the rods and a shotgun or two, mentally putting a monetary value to each item often much below the asking price, I found myself in a familiar quandary; what is value? Is it only m...

Jacob Blake Handcuffed to Hospital Bed Even Though He’s Paralyzed, Dad Says

Jacob Blake’s dad says when he visited his son in the hospital Wednesday, he was handcuffed to the bed … even though he’s paralyzed from the waist down and unable to walk as a result of being brutally shot in the back seven times by a cop. “I hate it that he was laying in that bed with the handcuff onto the bed,” Blake’s father, also named Jacob Blake, told the Chicago Sun-Times Thursday (Aug. 27), the day after he visited his son in the hospital. “He can’t go anywhere. Why do you have him cuffe...

Tuesday 18 August: Nairn Dunbar and The Interweb

“Hurry up, will ya,” Jeff barked as I lumbered out the front door onto High Street. “We’re running late you slow poke.” I admit to being the cause of his concern. Slow to answer the morning bell, my head fuzzy from last evening’s indulgences of an alcoholic nature. A take away extra large white coffee got me revved up and I, in turn, got that Audi revved up. I love the sound of a turbo in the morning. We had… Continue Reading →

It took nearly 30 years, but these 5 siblings and their parents opened a new restaurant together

Maria Elena Lorenzo and husband Juan Irra began their journey as restaurateurs nearly 30 years ago with an orange shopping cart. On early weekday mornings, Lorenzo trekked a mile from their home to sell homemade tamales to kids and their parents in front of Grape Street Elementary School in Watts while Irra filled the trunk of his car and sold them at local factories. Then, Lorenzo would push the shopping cart through the neighborhood, selling tamales along the way before making her way back hom...

Mister Twister Electric Fisherman Fillet Knife – Review

The Mister Twister Electric Fisherman fillet knife is a great fillet knife. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In the old days, everyone processed their fish with a straight knife. Dad had us kids rubbing the fish with a spoon to remove the scales. He’d cut the head off, stick the knife in the A-hole and run forwards and pull the guts out. It was now cooked ready. You’d throw it in a skillet with 1-inch of grease and soon be enjoying a tasty meal of fresh fish. Mister Twister Electric Fisherman Fillet...
