Sunday Summerset Scenery

Wordless Wednesday: Tunes & Screen-shots

Three Thursday Songs

Tuesday Tunes: 15 May 2018

The clouds and rain moved in today so no yardwork can be done. A lot has been accomplished so far and the landscaping is coming along nicely. We’re finally redesigning it to our tastes and love the progress.

Doing a bit of writing and gaming today and have music blasting as always. Here are three tunes for Tuesday afternoon.

Sunday Screen-Shots

I rescued this post from the trash-can and updated it. Summerset Isle is coming soon! I can’t want to have a grand, new location for my Sanctuary guild-hall.

It will be epic.

😎

Repairing a door after a successful capture.

Siege engines up – retake the crucial home keep!

The Doctor has taken the crown – an excellent display of teamwork!

Time away from the battlefield; visiting a lonely grave.

A feathered friend squawks approval.

Standing on the balcony of her grand, new manor…

…Sepultur’a surveys the courtyard, admiring the fruits of her labours and trials.

A reflecting pool, graced by the goddess of dawn and dusk.

Greeting a welcome guest…

…the knighted Titan-born in his finery.

Taking in the lovely scenery…

Sitting upon the hard-won throne. It is surprisingly comfortable!

Flanked by loyal, faithful, and trustworthy companions.

Having a drink near the statuary and shrubberies.

Time for an intimate meal…dessert to follow.

Tuesday Tunes

I’ve begun bookmarking selected blogs for reading again, and have followed a few after updating my list.

Relaxing indoors on this Tuesday afternoon; listening to music and doing some gaming while music plays in the background.

I heard this Depeche Mode song on the 80s station earlier this morning. Other than this one, the stations that I listen to on a regular basis don’t play this band very often at all.

Here are three songs of theirs which I have always enjoyed. I would love to see the video for the second song updated to reflect current political happenings!

Sunday Morning Music

Three soothing songs on this Sunday morning before the baseball game starts. I hope the Mariners take this series! Last night’s extra-inning game was a nail-biter and a half. I hope King Felix and the rest of the guys get the job done.

Full Moon Music

Here are five songs to tickle your eardrums on this full moon Sunday. Fill your ear-holes with songs about holes whilst dancing in the moonlight.

Tuesday Tidbits: Cooking & Comedy

Author’s Note: This post was originally published in March of last year. I updated it slightly.

It’s a nice, relaxing Tuesday. Snow is falling outdoors while the delicious aroma of home-made beef stew wafts through the house. Cooking is such an enjoyable thing to do, especially with fresh ingredients! I figured that I’d show a few of the vegetables which I like to use in stews, much like my previous post about the things I toss in with my chicken soup.

Onions, shallots, and garlic make up the base of most dishes. I don’t think that any dinner is complete unless it has at least one of those flavourful bulbs included! Carrots may or may not be used, since the variety of root vegetables used more than makes up for their omission. These herbs and vegetables round out the meal:

Thyme

Rosemary

Oregano

Parsnip

Turnip

Rutabaga

Red potatoes

I love using fresh herbs of many different types…the picture below shows a few of my go-tos.

Since I’m amusing myself with some choice comedy bits, I thought that I’d share them with you. A good laugh does a body good, and these clips had me in a fit of giggles!

Shining the Blacklight on American Democracy

Drumpf’s Agenda: Today, America…Tomorrow, the World!

Conan O’Brien talks about the United Airlines dress code

Conan O’Brien hits Comic-Con(R) Mad Max-Style (2015)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a few short clips about bots and the role they play in various online scams. Behind every bot, troll, sock-puppet and cat-phishing attempt / attack is someone looking to give you the old “Rick-Roll.”

Saturday Saturnalia Reprise

This post was originally published in August of 2015. Here it is again, with a few new things thrown into the mix.
