how to raise and train a dachshund.

April 11th, 2011 · No Comments

How to Raise and Train a Dachshund reminds me of this book my father gave me called How to Raise a Dog in the City. With no copyright info in front of me, I’d have to say both books are circa 1960s and serve as high-brow precursors to the Dachshunds for Dummies, et al., series [...]

why so quiet?

March 7th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Because the first two months of 2011 have been crazy! I got a new job(!), and Ryan and I moved to New York City! In less than a month, we packed up our entire apartment, scooped up the dog, and drove all of our belongings to our new home in New York — it was [...]

January 6th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Bestrice Coron’s whimsical papercuts are incredibly intricate pieces of artwork.  They draw inspiration from various angles such as poems, current events, and even philosophical concepts…and quite frankly, I can’t stop looking at them.

mother nature’s ‘shock and awe’ campaign.

December 29th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Mother Nature threw a wrench in travel plans for those of us who live up and down the Eastern seaboard this past weekend, stranding people in airports, halting public transportation, and leaving anywhere from 12-24 inches of snow in its wake. I, for one, lucked out and caught the very last Southwest flight out of [...]

laura marling: new romantic way.

December 29th, 2010 · No Comments

Ms. Marling has had me both swooning and sobbing for weeks over this song and I think it’s about time I spread the sentiment.  You’d better have  a hankie handy before pressing play.  And if you happen to dig this young British prize, I suggest you check out her new album, “I Speak Because I [...]
