Haters are gonna say it's the second day of spring, but I'll take a snow day whenever I can. Winter Storm Toby turned my crib into a #farmlife winter wonderland today, and I spent more time outside than...Read more
This morning, Mamma D and I took my best friend and confidant, Nikki (AKA her dog), on a kayaking adventure to Little Seneca Creek in Boyds, Maryland. Mamma D has lived in MD for 25+ years and I've been here for 18-ish, but neither of us had heard of the creek-- until D got the hot tip from active.com.

Sharing 98.7% of our DNA, bonobo's are essentially the estranged, hippie cousins we recently discovered via Ancestory.com who have a more interesting and verbally pleasing last name than we do (or at least than I do-- mispronouncing-- or pronouncing-- "Raskauskas" is like...Read more
Did you know that tens of millions of gallons of oil spills into North American oceans each year? That's gross. It's easy to point the finger at big oil companies and blame them for oil pollution in our oceans, but if we do, 92% of our fingers will be pointing back at ourselves. That's unlikely, you may be thinking. I have five ...Read more
What's black and white and green all over? These items. While that wasn't funny, it was true because the black and white items featured here were all either handmade with recycled paper or were printed on recycled paper. I know what you may be thinking...Read more
