Weird Weekend – Atlantis and Ancient History

How Much History Do We Know? I have always been fascinated by the legends of Atlantis.  I find the idea that an entire civilization could be ‘lost’ intriguing because in school we are told we know everything about man’s progressive rise.  From the hunter-gatherer, to the city-states in the Fertile Crescent, through the Victorian Age… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Atlantis and Ancient History

Wild Wednesday – Look! Zoo Animals!

A long, busy day, but I am determined to keep up my Wild Wednesday posts.  Today I made chicken dinner, a whole lot of chicken dinners, actually.  When I started the day, I had 15 of these: Now I have this: And this: But nobody really wants the details on that, and I'm too tired… Continue reading Wild Wednesday – Look!

Weird Weekend – Vampires, Werewolves, and Bestsellers, Oh My!

So I’ve got to work on the consistency thing, but it seems that for the first time in a long time I’ve bitten off way more than I can chew.  Getting the garden going, managing feeding, watering and cleaning up after 29 chickens takes up the little time I have after work.  I found myself… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Vampires, Werewolves, and Bestsellers, Oh My!
