Fate has spoken at last, and after two rounds of bidding, our quest for the raw space in Ft. Greene is no more (the one I hinted at in this post last month). So it’s back into the feeding frenzy of homebuyers for us, sigh… We are a bit bummed, but losing it is in… Read more »

There are signs of spring – the first sounds, since the start of winter, of birds singing in the morning, the sun beaming, and the temperature is still pretty crisp but balmy and… Read more »

Some Purdy-Lookin’ Sweets From Last Weekend

We exchanged URLs and whaddya know, a month or so later, I’m trying out one of the recipes featured on her site MarmaladeMagazine.com. And… Read more »
