Visiting Pierre

So remember reading how Liam Wallace came down with a case of numb brain while listening to his pater drone on and on and on about foraging for edible fungi and vegetation in the mountain woods? It happened again when patrem et filium decided to that the road trip to just get out of the […]

No, not Carassius auratus auratus. Liam Wallace has been staying away from proto-school though he did meet up with one of his group by sheer accident over the last weekend (he kept to a safe distance). And while the pater has reinstated morning snoozies in attempt to have the Micro-Dragon conserve energy and recharge brain, […]

Two blueberries

So this here is a photo of two blueberries. There are two berries and they are both indigo-colored: ergo, two blueberries.

Yes, that’s right – Liam Wallace’s first experience with poisson (that would be fish or 魚) is the Patagonian Toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) that on average retails for in and around $69.96/kg. Guilt considerations aside, this fish […]

Well, an event/milestone of sorts as the Micro-D has had to resort to soymoo (alias commercial soy-based infant formula) because of a temporary interruption in the supply of mom-moo. It’s not like he has never had formula before; right after birth we were hoisting little plastic shot glasses of formula while the mom-moo supply chain […]
