We’ll Fire Up
Apparently Effie went through no fewer than 200 matches the other day trying to start a fire in the rain. There’s got to be a Scout badge in there somewhere!

Ever since his trip to my office, Fergus is more intrigued with what I do than ever. Or maybe that’s more philosophical: “Good night Dad, have fun at the office tomorrow - not that you can” is what he says to me at bedtime now. He also goes on about all the breaks I apparently have. Also…
Ferg: “So, what do you do at the office Dad?”
Me: “You saw that spreadsheet on my computer right? I work with numbers and I also write some words.”
Ferg: “But what do the words SAY?”
Me: “Well, I work on...”
Ferg: “BORING”.... “You should stay home with us.”

YACHT - See Mystery Lights... an album chock full of hearty goodness.
Video :: The Afterlife by YACHT
Love Is All - Ten Thousand & Ten Injuries... Shouty n' Swedish.
Video :: Kungen by Love Is All
A homeschooling family up the road from us recently went into the SPCA to adopt a dog. When going through the process they were told that they did not qualify since they were homeschoolers and therefore would be home all the time. Huh? I can’t imagine losing that argument but apparently they left empty handed. There’s got to be more to this than that.
