An Exaltation of Creativity and Bliss

"The Falkenberg" ~ A Lobster Roll for Those Who Want More than Mayonnaise
~ a gourmet lobster roll recipe ~
Every lobster roll we ate was the same unattractive mixture of a hot dog bun, cold iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise and varying amounts of lobster meat. We couldn't fault the lobster meat, but the rest of the very expensive "treat" was, in the words of Hercule Poirot, "an uninviting delicacy." more

A Sad Ventura User Finds Joy with Serif's PagePlus X5 A Sad Ventura User Finds Joy with Serif's PagePlus X5
~ a software review of desktop publishing software ~
My first task was to get it from Ventura to PagePlus, and it was then that I felt my first thrill of desktop publishing joy with PagePlus. I had published the document as a PDF, and was very, very pleased to see how elegantly PagePlus imported the PDF into the PagePlus format. more
Review: Efficient Address Book Contact Management Software
Version 1.67
They say that the children of cobblers sometimes don’t have good shoes, and so it has been with me. Since I felt reluctant to dump all of my contacts into a web database, and since my other desktop database programs seemed to be overkill, I’ve been living without a good contact management database for a number of years. The last ones I had used were a dBASE/Clipper utility, and an Alpha Five for Windows data app that I had written ages ago. more
The Beauty of Snow The Beauty of Snow
A divinity must have stirred with them before the crystals did thus shoot and set. Wheels of the storm-chariots. The same law that shapes the earth-star, shapes the snow-star. As surely as the petals of a flower are fixed, each of these countless snow-stars comes whirling to earth...(From Henry David Thoreau's essay entitled, "Travels in Concord") more

The Woollcott Reader and the short story, "Margaret Ogilvy" The Woollcott Reader and the short story, "Margaret Ogilvy"
~ Edited by Alexander Woollcott. One of the stories, "Margaret Ogilvy", is by J.M. Barrie ~
The opening story is by J.M.Barrie, about his beloved mother, entitled, "Margaret Ogilvy". We're all familiar with his work, "Peter Pan", but chances are that "Margaret Ogilvy" is not being widely read at the moment. I love the title of the first chapter: "How My Mother Got Her Soft Face." more
