The plane swirled over the bay as the mist hung close to the headlands.  It landed softly in San Francisco and  for the first time in a year in a half I was “home”.  But I wasn’t home.  SF hasn’t been home for almost two years now.  But because I’ve still had my flat there, [...]

I keep hearing the same thing over and over in my head lately, “ordinary people do extraordinary things”.  Mostly the voice pops into my head in the morning while I’m walking to work.

It’s been a month since I have posted to our blog.  Many many thanks to Lauren for her weekly posts and for picking up the slack while I was away. I have just returned home from 21 days of travel.  Tim and I have been on a whirl wind tour through the states to visit [...]

Get your heads out of the gutter people, I’m talking about The Crock Pot!  It was a very merry christmas to me with a brand new shiny crock pot from my main man.  I used to have a crock pot when I lived in SF, but ever since moving to his tiny apartment in Amsterdam [...]
