Wet christmas cat deletes outsourced holiday songs


Melika and cat adjusted

Why does a year’s worth of rain fall in one day in California? How did Dan apply business lessons (right-sourcing) to the Christmas Tree process? What feline care lessons did Melika learn when we lived in The Netherlands? Is a fossilized tree a good bet for the living room? Dan set up Nazy’s new phone, so why is he having so much trouble with his own phone?

Rain slides Candle Inferno to rescheduled holiday trip

The Martin Family 1983 copy

How can a open air vent ruin a table cloth, clog a salt shaker and fill a wine glass with wax? More to the point - who forgot to close the vent? [Nothing would have gone awry if electric lights rather than candles had been used.] Darius booked flights well in advance. Darius booked a simple, direct itinerary. Could anything go wrong? [This is, of course, a rhetorical question.] Why is it dangerous to leave a washing machine running during a dinner party? And, did California really ‘store’ the water from the only storm of the season in the ocean? Read More...

dan and tiger November 14 2014

Where can you find a teak rooster that is the same size as a Tyrannosaurs Rex? (And why would you be looking for one?) Why didn’t High School experiences (“Don’t let me friends see me in ‘the VAN’, Dad.”) influence Melika’s selection of a new motor conveyance? And, on the topic of cars, did Dan and Nazy really down-size while the grand(est)son is upsizing? Why does the government want you to believe that they create an extra hour when they move to daylight savings time?

Vikings melt rusted TR7 losing iPhone Finding red Car

Baby and friends


Did the “Find my iPhone” App save Nazy’s bacon? Or, was it necessary to speak with a Scientology missionary first? Did Eric the Dead design and build The Martin Family refrigerator? (Which is also dead.) When is red really red? Hint: Dan’s Memphis-based TR7 that wouldn’t start, but would leak, was ‘not red’. And - why does it matter? Finally, who’s grand(est)son can sit up all by himself?

Does fracking in North Dakota cause drought in Southern California? Hint: It’s election season and it’s easier to against everything than it is to be for anything. Do you need to know how to walk before you learn how to dance? And why is The Martin Family automobile responsible for high invoices from AT&T? Read More...
