The iDevices are great as you just keep your finger on the letter a little longer and all the alternatives pop up. But those goshdarn old-fangled computer keyboards...well...

ALT-248 or ALT-0176

Bake at 350°


½ cup


¼ tsp.

I wowed someone at work with this one:

ALT-137 or ALT-0235

Book Mosaics

Purchases, prepubs, library booksale, abebooks. Oh my. Life is good. 

I don't have enough time. 

Cue Twilight Zone music and enter Burgess Meredith. 

I can still read without my glasses.

Queen Califia's Magic Circle

For those asking about the mosaic snake in the Green collage, it is in Queen Califia's Magic Circle, the Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture garden in Escondido.

I can't remember when I visited, but here are some pictures I posted a few years ago. It's quite a vibrant, imaginitive place.
