I've never played the game Angry Birds, have you? This owl could be he poster child for it. He's probably not angry at all. His eyes look absolutely electric, don't they? Have a great weekend. via

Watch this very enjoyable short film that tells the true story behind the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' poster discovered by the proprietors of an old book shop in England. I downloaded their [free] Keep Calm App to my iPhone and love it. I can't wait to play around with it. I am such a child. Click here if you are unable to watch this video on my blog. I promise you are going to like it ! ! !

I love this. I can't stand anything that's crooked. I always have the grid visible in my camera and the straightening tool is one of my favorite things about Picasa, the free photo editing program from Google. I used to do custom framing and I'm glad I did not have to cut this double mat for the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Have a great weekend. via

I was quite happy yesterday working in the field at a septic inspection. I find that if I wear my contractor clothes I get a much better job from the hired workers. I'm happiest in this kind of clothing too. You have to wear many
hats shoes in this life and thankfully I am experienced in almost all aspects of home building and maintenance. My weakness is housework. This photo is my actual foot at the end of the day yesterday. It's too much trouble to take them off each time I walk in the door so I leave little clods of mud all over the house. I am my own worst enemy :>)

Wouldn't it be fun to slide on this floor in your sock feet? It's big enough to get a good running start. And then you could shout for joy up to the clerestory windows. (Windows set in a roof structure or high in a wall, used for daylighting.) via
Piggy isn't here but we still talk about him. My mother was eating some chocolate and he didn't get a bite because dogs aren't supposed to eat any -- but he did get to lick the soup bowl. I hope he misses us. Webster doesn't seem to care one way or another. He likes being only dog or guest host equally well. It's supposed to be 66 degrees today with spring in the air.

It will be a while before I can take another picture showing spring blooms and foliage. In the meantime, here is the other view I have showing more of the cottage. Be patient and I'll make every effort to go back and take more pictures.

As usual, I like the estate cottage better than the mansion. I didn't get any closer because my group was in a hurry. Next time, I'll go alone and see what it's like inside. It will be spectacular later on when things are in bloom. I took this iPhone photo just as it was starting to rain a few weeks ago.
