A warm (39ºF), foggy, North Star State morning greeted me today as I stepped out on to the porch. I can linger a bit, and savor the warmth of my (china, not stoneware) mug of Kona blend coffee (I purchased a whole 1# bag, so I will have it for a while—good stuff, Maynard!). I spent the day yeste...

(If you’re in the neighborhood, c’mon around to the back & say hello (be careful of the squeaky gate—my “Medford alert”), coffee’s hot and fresh, just to your left, inside the door.) It’s another fine morning here on my back porch with my (china, not stoneware) mug of Kona blend coffee (A milder...

Don’t look for me here—go on around to the back! I am savoring my (china, not stoneware) mug of organically & shade grown, fair trade, French roast, coffee this fine Saint Paul morning on my back porch—the temperature under a clear & star-filled sky is 32ºF, with no wind—so I can linger here a bi...

It’s a balmy 11ºF with almost no wind, allowing me to remain on the porch with my (china, not stoneware) mug of (organically & shade grown, fair trade, Guatemalan roast) coffee warming my hands, and helping my brain fire on all synapses. Daisy did not spend the night here last night—she’s in the...

Hi, I’m Daisy!  Jay invited me over last night, he’s pretty nice for a people-dog (I think people are dogs too). He takes me for walks. He doesn’t really mind if I jump up on him—even though he tells me to “geddoff” in a gruff, yet kind voice.   This is me the first day at the Boardmanpack. I wa...

Our gentle readers seem to key on the weather as observed from my back porch—OK, here it is: 9ºF, slight southerly wind, and with no wind & my parka wrapped about me, I can actually enjoy my coffee without it instantly cooling to “iced coffee” (yuk). Not so long ago, during the now-but evaporate...

“Against the wind I was running against the wind I found myself seeking shelter Against the wind” - Bob Seger And so it was as I made my way to the coffee shop, anticipating that hot mug of organically & shade grown, fair trade, French roast coffee, first warming my hands, then warming me to my ...

You’re looking at the front porch, I’m in back! Its 19ºF and snowing very, very, lightly, with an accumulation of the “dusting” variety—meaning almost nothing! I wonder why at the beginning of the winter season, we wish for heavy snows—and by January, we’re already soooo tired of it??? You’d thi...

This is our "Cyber Cafe" banner all dressed up for the Christmans Holidays. This one I didn't have to build from scratch.Yesterday, in our post: “We Can’t Help Ourselves—Today’s BAD Joke,” in our last comment we posed a bit of a puzzle for any subsequent reader/commenter: “Take a good look at th...

by Jay Merton Maureen McCabe asked in her post, Real Town Bloggers: “Will you decorate your blog (s) for Christmas?  Or ‘the holidays’?” Well, being the handyman, albeit retired, that I am, and encouraged by that ne’er-do-well techno-geezer, Medford I thought—why not? It can’t be too hard can it...
