When I think of it, I feel like Golum in Lord of the Rings. I’m not sure how I could live without it. Justine got it for my birthday a few weeks ago and I’ve been downloading podcasts ever since. Podcasts are digital radio shows that people create and post online. You can find thousands […]

Justine and I saw an odd sign near a Belgian restaurant we like just off of Montrose & Westheimer several months ago. The sign said “Knitting, please” and then listed a web address (see photo above). The Houston Press and the Houston Chronicle have just written stories about this group of knitting graffiti artists. www.knittaplease.com […]
