Needles

Like we do, last week Beth and I had some time to kill, so we wandered south of Moab.  Maybe we’d finally get to check out the exciting cities of Blanding or Bluff!  But then something magical happened.  A few miles outside Moab, there is a wonderful little place called Hole in the Rock. What […]

I’m in New York at the moment, and it is just starting to snow. We are supposed to get a lot of snow through out tonight and tomorrow.  From our room at the Super 8 (which is a nicer place than you’d think), we will watch the snow as we spend time working on various […]

Timpanogos

Oh, poor neglected blog.  Will you ever be updated frequently? Ever since I moved here, Beth and I have talked about hiking the Timpanogos Cave trail, which is over a mile long, and a whole lotta vertical gain (1,060ft, to be exactly).  On this hike, you are literally hiking along the side of the mountain, […]

Experian Fraud

Google it. There are a lot of people angry with Experian over fraudulent charges, and I just became one of them. There are two types of pissed off people: 1.) People who ordered their credit report for $1, and then canceled the scheduled credit monitoring charge, only to have that $19.95 charge appear month after […]

How To Water Your Cat

Our cat, Abby, loves water.  In the summer she sleeps in the cool sink and waits for one of us to turn on the water. If we walk into the room with a water bottle, and the water bottle makes a sloshing sound, she runs up and paws at the water bottle. It’s quite ridiculous. […]
