“Can” is a Tricky Word

The blog title implies a certain amount of copyediting. So, let’s take a look at something from a Behind the Black post about the crashing Chinese booster: The issue here is not the danger, but China‚Äôs gross negligence and violation of its treaty obligations in launching this rocket knowing the core stage was going toContinue reading ““Can” is a Tricky Word”

Getting Ready 2 Move -3

Yesterday, I went through the bar. Two boxes packed, two trash bags full of junk, and some strange leftovers: Why did we have sealing ceramic canisters in the cupboard behind the bar?

Throughout several years of grade school, Rita made bread for my peanut butterContinue reading “Grandma’s Bowls”

The KitchenAid from G*d

I mentioned earlier that I would tell this story. Now seems like a fine time since I’m waiting for bread to rise before starting yardwork – and getting dirt under my fingernails. I suppose it wouldn’t really matter since I’m not going to be touching it, again. However, I try to avoid multitasking when makingContinue reading “The KitchenAid from G*d”
