Big changes coming up in the next months. We're moving to the Netherlands! Selling our stuff and home, just taking some clothes and the dog.

Does anybody have any advice about living abroad? We'll be living in a college town near Rotterdam called Delft. It will be a grand adventure!

In other news - economy sucks (so they say) country headed for doom (so they say) lots of boom boom. Why don't we every see good...

Returned from Florida!!

Had a glorious time meeting dolphins and other sea creatures at Discovery Cove. A bit tired of unbridled consumerism. After each "attraction" I kept on guessing how I would be led to an ironic gift shop. Who has room for a mug, key chain, t-shirt, stuffed animal from every place they've ever been? Not me. LOL

Still love to see all...

We ripped up the carpet last week and found some pretty sweet hard wood floors. Now we just have to update the electrical outlets and put in some cable outlets. An old...

You two look very familiar. Did you ever spend any time in the Grand Marais area?

If you see me at a bout say hi! I skate under the name Freddy Kruelgirl.

I tried out for the MNRG, as well. I did not make it, obviously. There were 68 of us trying out for 20 spots! Yikes! I wouldn't trade my spot on the NSRG for the world, though, they are really really great ladies.

Went to the Brian Jonestown Massacre last night. It was fucking great. If you have not seen the Dig! documentary you totally have to!!

Anton is the real deal - and is actually a crazy person. It was pretty exciting to see in person. The music was just amazing! Dig this band.
