Bacon Mints

Huh...Savory Bacon Mints?

What's in them?

I'll have to try one.

Wow, they taste like bacon & mint!
How'd they do that?
....and why?

Kitty Saviors

Cleo is my cat, a cat I've loved for 14 years now and I was very concerned with what I would do with her while we are gone.

Enter in our Kitty Saviors:

My dear friends have accepted taking her in while we are gone - depending on their cat's final approval.

Gilliam is about the same age as Cleo, so I think it's going to be a love affair for the history books -

Much like theirs.....

Little People - Big Decision

What to do - when time is bearing down on you and you still have so much to do? What to do - when you find a job unlike any other AND you really like it? What to do - when there is so much hype about oil driving up the price of everything? You throw a dart on the calendar and you buy that airline ticket! We bought our plane tickets We fly into Tokyo and have 4 months to figure out how to get to Sydney to fly home. I don't think it has really hit me, not even after seeing that charge on my account.

Say cheeeeeezzz

After too many blurry pictures with an orange-yellow hue we decided to purchase a new camera. Just when we were ready to plunk down the cash for a new Nikon SLR, we came across the Nikon CoolPix P80.

It had everything we wanted:




Compact, 10.1 Megapixels, vibration control lens, video with audio


Even though we still dream of having a true SLR camera. This is perfect for novices like us.

Isn't she a beauty - can't wait to she what she captures on our travels.
