Too Many Emails

I have multiple email accounts. I manage majority of these mail accounts by having one account retrieve them. Well, it seems the main account was having problems retrieving one of the accounts for the past month. I took care of the problem child several nights ago.

Beluga Haikus

On Deck Beluga Cam
While working on the Beluga cams, the Captain worked with one of the interns to come up with an Haiku after I looked up the format for them -- 3 phrases, 1st line 5 syllables, line 2 7 and line 3 5.

I also took it on as a challenge for myself and came up with this.

What Am I Reading?

My life is not all cams -- pandas and the world of I somehow still squeeze in reading, finishing a book or 3 a week.

Maggie and Crochet

My craft email brought Maggie to mind as she was the one who peaked my interest in crochet. My memories are a bit foggy. I'm sure Maggie crocheted ponchos for us girls. She then help me with crocheting my own.

Maggie would watch television while she crocheted hats, sweaters, or ponchos for baby dolls. I never knew what happen to all those doll clothes and baby dolls.

I never thought about it until now. Yes, Maggie is the closest thing to a grandmother to us. Her son, the superintendent of the building, would have been a second father.

No, I never did go far in the world of crochet. I've done simple stuff... ponchos... scarves... granny squares. I have a tub and bags of items for yarn crafting. I picked up knitting somewhere along the way.

Well, I have several tubs of craft projects that I might get to one of these days. These days have not arrived yet. LOL

2016 Chinese New Year Celebration

Last night was the family get together to celebrate the Lunar New Year which, if you don't know already, is the year of the Monkey. Out of all of us, we only have 1 Monkey, my oldest niece.

I get into Chinatown with plenty of time to spare. As I near the new restaurant we were going to try, I see my youngest sister approach me. She stops me and says, "I think this is the place." I stare at her because she's not pointing to the restaurant we were meeting at, but at a little joint that has a line coming out the door wrapped beyond it's store front.
