Sundry Sunday Stuff

Mine That Bird, Breakers, Phillies, Red Sox and Celtics Happy Endings!

Oh my god.  All I can say is “Oh, my god!”  We added a wireless access point on the third floor of our house yesterday (where I am writing) and it has opened up whole new vistas!  No longer do … Continue reading
