Mike and Anne’s Restaurant and Bar

Mike and Anne’s Restaurant and Bar

Earlier this month my sister Judy visited for a long weekend. We treated ourselves to a girls’ night out at Mike and Anne’s and I couldn’t resist snapping a quick shot of the cozy setting.

Zen Monday: #78

Zen Monday: #78

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something […]

Good Will Toward You

Good Will Toward You

In America it’s politically correct to say “Happy Holidays” from late November through December because people of so many cultures and religious backgrounds live here. I’m not a Christian myself but I don’t mind hearing “Merry Christmas,” nor do I worry much about getting the greeting right as long as people are of good cheer. […]

STAY TUNED ON MONDAY: Search for intelligent life gains momentum

For 25 years the SETI Institute has pointed their satellites to the sky in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Its research was once associated with UFOs and fringe science, but with more than 400 planets known to exist outside of our solar system, and more discovered every week, the search for intelligent life beyond our […]
