Could I have stopped John Wilkes Booth from shooting Abraham Lincoln if I could have been there? Could I have sneaked up behind him in the theater and whacked him over the head with a shovel? Could I have screamed at the top of my lungs until the police came and arrested Booth? And if I was able to stop the assassination of Lincoln, how would it have changed history?
As a baby boomer, I was the one of the television generation. We grew up sitting in front of that glowing box, voraciously devouring all of it.
One of my favorite programs was The Twilight Zone. I was a little too young to remember it when it was on live; I was even three years old when the first episode debuted and I was seven and a half when the series exited the airways.
If you’re fascinated with the Twilight Zone TV series like I am, you’re in the right place!
Recently my daughter asked me to pick up a bicycle that someone was selling before they moved away. Annelise had been asking for a bicycle, and at $20, this was a good buy.
The Baby Surprise Jacket is an iconic pattern designed by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I regard this lady as the Julia Child of the knitting world. She was actually on public television about the same time as “The French Chef” was in the 1960s. How amazing is that? A TV show featuring someone knitting!
I’ve been dealing with trigger finger condition for over five years. When it first happened, I didn’t realize it was anything, just a funny little feeling in my fingers one morning. According to the internet, it’s a “condition in which a finger gets stuck in a bent position and then snaps straight.”
It kept getting worse.
My oldest daughter has a birthday coming up. I like to make cowls for her, and since she loves purple, I started looking for a pattern to use.
Rarely, if ever, does a knitting project use the exact amount of yarn you have purchased for it. Most people, myself included, buy a little extra than what they anticipate needing so as not to run out before the piece is finished. Using up leftover yarn becomes a big question. No one wants to waste yarn!
My granddaughter was turning two years old in about a week and I hadn’t thought about knitting anything for her! You know how the time slips away! Well, I had to get busy and make something for her.
With just a small amount of time, I decided to use bulky yarn so the project would work up quickly. I decided an afghan would be best–no measuring or worrying about fit, and my little girls love their soft blankets.
No matter how much your instrument cost, it’s important to take care of your flute.
Whether you have a low-end student flute or a handmade solid gold masterpiece, proper cleaning, handling and maintenance is vital to keeping your flute in good playing condition.
I’ve spent most of my adult life working as a medical transcriptionist.
This wasn’t something I planned as I was growing up. In fact, when I went to college, I majored in flute performance. This explains how I ended up as a medical transcriptionist!
Are you new to the flute or perhaps just need a refresher course? Be sure to check out the various pages on my site for learning how to play the flute.
That’s a great question to ask.
When my children were growing up, I felt that it was vital that they take piano lessons. I found great teachers for them and they are wonderful pianists.
No matter what I’m knitting, I usually choose a circular needle for the project. It doesn’t matter whether the project is a circular tube or a flat piece, circular needles just work better for me.
