  • Walkies

    Posted February 28 by Jonathan

    Spenser the dog and I went for a long walk yesterday while we waited for the Subaru to get new tires. We are pretty lucky here in Medford MA, as we have lots of great outdoorsy places to go for being no more than a 20 minute drive to downtown Boston. There's always the Middlesex Fells, which is a ...

    Today's political climate takes me to another dark place in American history... in 1995 when OJ Simpson was aquitted of murdering two white people, I felt like an alien because I was the only white person among my friends and family who understood and agreed with the innocent verdict.  They cou...

  • Mental Hibernation / im Winterschlaf im Kopf

    Posted February 23 by paikea

    I don't know about you guys, but I have been finding this whole political climate so incredibly horrific and crushing that sometimes I can hardly breathe. I think this election was bad enough, but as debilitating as that was mentally, in the weeks [and yes, it has literally only been weeks] since th...

  • The Bibble Years 1

    Posted February 22 by Bunny FKA Geology Byotch

    Intro: I plan to write a book about my life with Bibble and with the rescue. It all started with Bibble, and so I will call it The Bibble Years. Here is the beginning, and I will continue to write the book here on blogcozy, eventually copying it all to Word and submitting it to a publisher. March 2...

  • Instagram milestones

    Posted February 21 by Jack Yan

    I was really hoping for 1,500 followers and 750 following to mark when I had twice as many Instagram followers as followings, but it looks like I hit that mark with 1,490 and 744 (close enough). I also managed to see 100 notifications a few weeks ago, thanks to someone who liked a lot of my photos...

  • Zie Ze Vliegen

    Posted February 16 by Jack Yan

    Had no idea this existed: a Dutch remake of Come Fly with Me. It might be quite funny except one wonders what the point was. Most Dutch people speak English and the original is excellent. Did it need a shot-by-shot remake?    For those who haven’t seen the original, here’s a t...

  • Promises them plenty

    Posted February 13 by Jonathan

    As I watch Rome burn, I've often been thinking of this 3 Stooges skit. This is exactly how the Lying Corrupt Talking Yam got elected: Moe: What's a dictator do? Mr. Onay: "A Dictator? Why, he makes love to beautiful women, drinks champange, enjoys life and never works. He makes speeches to th...

    ARGH please can we have an early spring? And a mild summer. Thank you!

  • QotD: bring the music

    Posted February 13 by Jack Yan

    QotD: if you were to learn a musical instrument, which one would it be? I started learning the piano at age 17 for about five hours, and after that I could play by ear, as long as there weren’t too many key changes. My chords are very basic. I’d love to know more about chords and some o...

  • Anticlimactic

    Posted February 10 by TreeSweater

    My blood pressure - the reason I was going to the doctor in the first place - was not only not high for my age group, it wasn't high at all. It was back down to the normal, healthy pressure it has always been. Go figure. He did order a blood draw to do some tests, including checking my thyroid, and...

  • the end of an era

    Posted February 10 by Bunny FKA Geology Byotch

    Bibble came into my life in March 2009 as a wee baby. He was born in January. Masha bought him from a garden centre (naughty!) because I wanted a cat or a dog when I moved here permanently. Masha had had house rabbits with his ex and didn't want a cat or dog. The cat because of Little Bird, the dog ...

  • Living in America

    A friend on Facebook posted a great a-capella version of Rammstein's "Du Hast".   It made me think of this song. I adore this band (yes who would have known that this little middle aged chick was a metal-head, eh?): (German lyrics below)English translation of lyrics (2004 Jeremy Willi...
