More Views Around The Burg

As some of you know, I post about the area I live in, known fondly as The Burg.  Check out some of my other explorations. We moved here the end of July, 2014.  Small town, mid-west USA.  The Heartland of America.  I love small towns.  But I do like a little convenience.  The Burg isContinue reading “More Views Around The Burg”

Wrapping Up 2014 and the Last Five Years

Well, here we are, at the very last several hours of 2014 – it is 10:33 AM as I write this. It has been a year for me!  My husband and I were living in another town.  An area where we moved around a few times since February of 2009.  Trying to find a placeContinue reading “Wrapping Up 2014 and the Last Five Years”

The Sun Is Up, The Sky Is Blue 🎶

Here, in the Mid-West,it has been very cloudy for about an entire month.  The sun tried a few times to shine on us but never could do it for very long.  Well today, it is shining in all it’s glory and warmth, well, it is only 37° F when I am writing this, but theContinue reading “The Sun Is Up, The Sky Is Blue 🎶”

Blogging Bliss

It is the day before Christmas, here, in The Middle.  The beauty of difference is that we can all celebrate, or not celebrate, our holidays as we please. Our family celebrates Christmas.  The true meaning of celebrating the birth of Christ is a big deal to us.  Also, I was raised in Christmas.  Christ mayContinue reading “Blogging Bliss”

All the Fields Are Brown and The Sky is Gray

The winter has set in here, in The Burg.  Today we went for a drive.  We have been socked-in with clouds for about a month, or so it seems.  The sun is scarce and this is unusual. Once the beautiful colors of autumn have finished their glorious display of plumage, the browns and grays setContinue reading “All the Fields Are Brown and The Sky is Gray”

Where Are The Children?

Here are a few pics from Charles Dickens Day in the streets of The Burg.  The actual temperature wasn’t very cold, but the clouds and dampness made it feel much colder. Let’s just say it was rather Dickens-Like in it’s feel.  Very little happening on the street as I had envisioned it.  Where were theContinue reading “Where Are The Children?”

Thinking Too Small

I’ve mentioned before that I have a passion for seeing people progress into their destiny.  For seeing their potential and hopefully I can encourage them to get there. I am not a professional in that area.  Heck, I don’t even know what to call it.  It’s something that I can do. Let me tie theContinue reading “Thinking Too Small”

A Bit of History in The Burg

After my last post, featuring this image:  https://wingedprisms.com/2014/11/21/friday-in-the-burg/ I did a little digging.  Well, that was after a couple of friends of mine pointed me in the right direction. Seems that it was a Mule Barn back in the day – late 1800s, early 1900s – owned by The Jones Brothers. http://books.google.com/books?id=jDvQ3OBRm5YC&lpg=PA37&ots=JkGXKBMh9H&dq=Jones%20Brothers%20Mule%20Barn&pg=PA37#v=onepage&q=Jones%20Brothers%20Mule%20Barn&f=false It is noContinue reading “A Bit of History in The Burg”
