May your nogs be eggy, your puddings figgy, and may your trash cans overflow from castaway Christmas containers and wrappings.

Colt Clark decides to teach his homeschooled kids a new song every day during Lockdown. They are pretty talented.

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

“What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”

Old Friends March 24, 2015

(I know I’m not exactly a main commenter here, but since I still had rights (See, Michael? I promised you I wouldn’t abuse them!), I thought I would share just a few of my thoughts on the end of IB.)

This place….

So many memories… So much fun and so much love. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone back and read some of the old threads here, to laugh at all the lame and not-so-lame jokes, but more importantly to remember. To remember the good times during so much bad. To see the names of those who have gone before us, all too soon.

To see the friends bicker and banter and tease each other. Like friends do. And to see these very same friends express support, caring, and love for each other in so many small ways. Sharing with each other, remembering the little things, as well as the epic.

I’m going to miss this place. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many of you, sharing so many laughs. I’ve always thought it was insanely cool how our two blogs evolved into something like bookends. We were different, but we were two sides of the same coin. (As an aside I have always found it interesting, at the meet-up on the CT River, how the H2ers and the IBers arranged themselves around the picnic table by blog, one crew on one side, one on the other. Cracked me up when that happened.)

So here’s to old friends. Those who are still with us and those who, while gone, still hold a very special place in our hearts.

I’m gonna miss this place.

I’m not sure we allow this sort of thing in Idaho.

Eva Cassidy ~ Remembered November 2, 2014

If you’ve never heard of Eva Cassidy you’re in for a bittersweet treat.



I’ve been a fan for years, this video made me weep.

She also has a beautiful version of “Fields of Gold”. Here’s what Sting had to say about it:

Years after Eva’s death, Sting did hear her recording of the song. In the article “Robin Young: Forever Catching Fireflies in a Bottle” by Laura Bernieri, we learn that “Robin was able to get Sting to listen to Eva’s rendition of ‘Fields of Gold.’ She has him on camera saying that he was quite territorial about that song, arrogant even, only to be brought to tears by her totally different vocal interpretation.”

Eva passed away N0vember 2, 1996.
