Geek Love

I thought these Valentine cards from Ironic Sans were hilarious. They have the great scientists with their personal valentine message. Newton, Darwin, and Sagan all give their love.

Valentine Dinner for Two

A few weeks ago, I came across this great recipe on Shelterrific’s Real Life Test Kitchen. It’s from the Jamie Oliver cookbook. This would make a great romantic dinner for two. It involved roasting a chicken with lemon, salt, pepper and garlic and roasting potatoes. […]

We did a little dog sitting this weekend. Miss Maddie is a pint size athletic diva. She is a champion ball retriever. After hours of playing and chasing toys around the house Maddie would retire on our office chairs.
