Due to some Apple software glitch, I have two Siris. They are both Irish. I like having Siri with an accent. For a while, she had a British-Indian accent. She’s been Australian, and now her Irish relatives are on the job. It was going so well. Irish Siri is cheerful, upbeat, thoughtful: […]
You might look at the words, “Prostate Wine,” and think: “I’m pretty sure I don’t want to drink that.” Completely understandable! But be assured, dear reader: this is not some far more gross version of Swamp Butt, or even anything remotely distasteful. Actually, it’s a wonderful thing. A celebration. A bright, unexpected spark after a […]
I miss the mall. So much. Not our current mall, limping along with its few stores, just hanging on by a thread and devastated by yet another blow, aka global pandemic. No, I miss the mall from back in the day. I miss the mall packed with people, no stores boarded up, where if you […]
It’s a spit storm right now, people! We’re right in the thick of it, and several things can happen in these trying times: We can freak out. Well, I think the current national coronavirus toilet paper shortage is evidence that this has occurred. Good news: we’re a nation of wipers! So, there’s that. The […]

For years, we belonged to a church in Maryland that had a pancake supper for Shrove Tuesday; it was great, and we always loaded up on pancakes, link sausage, […]
Hallmark Movies, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, you know I love you. I have watched just about every single movie you two channels have done. I’m a fan! However, some things have been on my mind. First, would it be the worst thing in the world to let your actors age gracefully? I’m so sad to see […]
I don’t want to cast shade, particularly about a Hallmark movie, particularly a Hallmark movie that has Robby Benson – the voice of the beloved Beast in Disney’s animated classic, “Beauty and the Beast,” and, of course, the star of movies from my youth, including “Ice Castles.” (Note I do not mention “Ode to Billie […]

Bumble Creek Farm
A delightful true account, told with love and humor by award-winning writer Janet Farrar Worthington, of her young family's riotous adventures on their own "Green Acres," as two urban professionals "who had no idea whatsoever what we were doing" start a farm in beautiful Horse Oak, Virginia.
Janet has done it again in this charming book giving happy little snapshots of home and family, animals with attitude, life in a small town, and finding the funny when everything seems crazy.
