New Year

.


AKA: S Novuim Godom!, Happy New Year!

Location: All around the world.

Additional Information:  In the last few weeks I made some leaps in what I consider to be acceptable content for this blog. I have added some labels which are intended to be a little less stringent than what has come before. Here are some of the new labels and what you can expect to find under them:

Personality: Items, projects, situations and solutions which somehow reflect upon their owners or the individuals involved.

Allablur: I really like digital blur so I created this label for shots which otherwise would have been tossed away.

Journal: A book of oddments.

Announcements: Blog related business.

Old House

.


AKA: ~

Location: Omar Light - Frankford, Delaware

Additional Information: Oddly, I believe that for many of us, old houses bring to mind our youths. Even more so than with people, old houses opened our eyes to the ageing process. People have a spark which can afford even the oldest individual a timeless quality. Old houses on the other hand begin to deteriorate fast if no one cares for them.

Along with teaching our very young eyes about age, old houses taught our very young minds about history. We saw it worn into our neighbors linoleum floors and in chewed through holes in a great uncles baseboard. Being inside an old house was like walking into a fictional history book where reality shared borders with the imagination and where we began to seamlessly fuse them into something called knowledge. 

In our previous post we featured a plaque awarded by the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society to a well kept and obviously much loved beach property. But not all old houses are granted loving recognition. If any one cares that the old house pictured above is passing the signs are not outward.

The Rock by Thermos

.


AKA:  Stainless Steel Beverage Bottle

Additional Information:  Equipped with a twist and pour stopper and a handle which dominates but delivers. The BBoB is not in the business of recommending or reviewing products but I really like this thermos. In fact, this is my second which I bought last night after a brief switch to another brand brought about by convenience and curiosity.
