The Clansmen Unite for an Evening of Scotch

December 2, 2013

I am delighted to report that our Second Annual Scotch Nosing and Tasting Party was another success, being celebrated on (appropriately) St. Andrew’s Day, November 30th. Each guest was greeted by “Angus McDuff, the Laird of the Manor House” (aka Hubby) and myself, his Lady. I don’t think anyone was truly expecting the wild, ginger-haired, crazy […]

Ghouls Night Out

(The Cubbyhole Writer has been juggling a few projects in the air of late, so regular posts have been a difficult task. I hope the calendar will finally allow me more time to re-connect with my readers and followers. Thanks for hangin’ in with me!)

And Baby Takes the Prize

March 25, 2013

As someone who has been out of the loop as far as attending baby showers up until two years ago, and having recently attended another one, I observed a few interesting changes in the whole affair. While there’s nothing wrong with the traditional way of gathering women friends and relatives together to coo over the new […]

10 Easy Ways to Mess with a Young Mind

March 22, 2013

For the last few days, I have been stuffing my head with technical bits and pieces, trying to become more comfortable with social media, but sadly some of that knowledge has already leaked out my ears and has puddled on the floor under my desk, waiting for someone to come clean up the mess. While I have […]
