Anchors Away!

Listen to Episode 30 Here!

Happy One Year Podiversary to us!!  Can't believe it's been a year.

I hope you have a chance to eat at The Old Spaghetti Factory someday if you haven't already.  The half mezzithra cheese and half mushroom sauce is my FAVORITE!!

A few of our brood of chickens.  Notice little white Duke in the back.  So cute!

And here's Edie 2 aka Stripe, the talking hen.

Sock Summit 2011 was ALL that everyone said it would be!!  If there is another one, you MUST try to attend.  Here are pics of two of my highlights.

With Peggy Stuart and family...

With Judith McKenzie (such a thrill)
And with Stephanie Pearl McPhee

Yes, Rick really did win best of show with the motorcycle he built and yes, that is Steven Tyler sitting on it.
