Thanks to Shelly of This Eclectic Life for posting this on Facebook. This is not something I normally listen to, and every second into the song, I connected more and more with it. Old Time Feeling a good feeling, so is making new feelings to become old time feelings later.

Shelly is hosting a contest. You might want to check it out – just click on the link above for information.

I know my blog title confuses the heck out of people who stumble upon it without knowing who I am. It was not meant to, and yet, I like that it does. I knew when I created this blog, we wanted to RV in the future, but when I came up with the title, it’s meaning was much less about RVing – it is just that the act of Rving reflects my vision so much more. My tag line to the title is self-explanatory, I hope.

Poetry is very much a part of my life: rough draft poetry as I have said before, because most of life is done as a rough draft, we react. But there is something to be said for poetry that is edited and tweaked.

Now if I say I am writing haiku or senryu, many don’t know what the latter is (I didn’t) and others think haiku is nature and descriptive, and would rather just look at nature than read someone’s words about it.

On Twitter, we have allowed ourselves the freedom to play. Much of the haiku you find is so untraditional purists are closing their eyes as they grimace. There is a lot of beautiful and pure haiku posted, too.

One individual, an animal activist, musician, and poet – as well as an everyday human being, is also a collector. He spends extraordinary amount of time searching to post for us what he feels is the best haiku, senry, tanka, and micropoetry posted on Twitter on any given day. He is known as the Dragonfly Hunter.

But, he does not choose only the pure, but, also, the clever, well thought out, different. All are tiny slices of life: seen, hidden, wanted, cast aside, loved, hated; even the everyday. Real life.

Check out the Dragonfly Hunter’s collection. Let your eyes skip across the page and light at random. I dare you: The Dragonfly Archives

Check this rather different RV out. I’d love to view the inside: School bus/VW

Starting 2010 out right, I’m going to attempt blogging on schedule. I need schedule in something because my mind leaps faster than Superman can catch a train, I think. Enough of me. Saturdays, I’ve chosen to link readers to other sites, be they blogs or otherwise. Today it is “two for one”, since I missed the Black Friday sales and the Christmas Eve sales this year, I figured I’d have a sale. (Lame, I know.)

Besides being a Fab Grandma, and all that involves, Karen is an RVer and a reviewer of gluten free foods and other items that catch her attention. I chose one post on each to share with you.

Have you ever wondered what an Rv workamper does in a typical day as a volunteer camp host? It’s not all just cleaning toilets, y’all. And the site in Georgia was beautiful.  Fab Grandma shares their day here.

I’ve become interested in Gluten free cooking, not that I’ve tried it yet, but I intend to, as soon as this procrastination thing weeds itself out of my personality. After reading Fab Grandma’s review on this Heartland Muffin mix, I think I will start with these. You don’t really think I was going to make them from scratch do you?

While you are there, why not browse her sites? You never know what you might find you like.

NOTE: Fab Grandma moved her sites. The links above still work, but her new blogs are found here: http://fabgrandma.com and http://reviews.fabgrandma.com/!

Note: NaBloPoMo’s January theme is Best. Fab/Best, works for me!

Electric outages drive most of us crazy. Finding gas after major storms to power smelly generators is sometimes nearly impossible. A Boca Raton, Florida company, Power Ready, is marketing a “generator” that is, for simplicity of explanation, a group of batteries that charge from your electricity and/or optional solar panels. It does not have to be kept outdoors away from windows or openings to keep deadly carbon monoxide from your home. It is, in fact, kept indoors. Sounds like a win-win, doesn’t it?

It won’t run an AC or water heater, but it will run just about anything else for several days even without solar aded.

It is a step in the right direction, I think, but only for those willing to fork out more money than most people would, or have. I won’t be purchasing it, I couldn’t get it paid for before Social Security became my only income, but I can see where it would be well worth any price to some people in their homes, and to many businesses that want to remain up and running in extended outages. So, I deem it well worth sharing, so, definitely, follow the link above and read about them.

The company is selling units in five states already. Kudos to Power Ready for designing it. Now, hopefully, they will realize they can sell it for a lot less than they are. Then it might just go viral.
