And Gutenberg Lived Here: Life Changes Part Three: Marriage? Where’s The Dowry?
Some time ago, a fellow blogger mentioned her wedding, and the place a dowry holds in Northern Ireland. That got me thinking about my family. Generations of hardworking Irish-Americans.

Until, one day, the good fairy of the … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Life Changes Part Three: Marriage? Where’s The Dowry?
And Gutenberg Lived Here: Talk To Me When Punxsutawney Phil Becomes A Saint.
Yesterday was, of course, Groundhog Day. And Gutenbergers being what they are- a historically based and bonded nation, holidays here are set by the Catholic church. And history.

Breakfast: Mugg and the Yoghurt
This week, everyone, for some reason or other, seemed to be writing about breakfast: about correct nutrition, or in one case beer and cigs after a concert, or the social value of a big, American, British, or Canadian, breakfast. Which more or less puts me up a creek without a croissant. Because..... Drum roll.... I … Continue reading Breakfast: Mugg and the Yoghurt
