Home improvement remodeling fun

Just discovered a funny, wonderful website called Casa Decrepit, that follows the misadventures of a couple remodeling their Italianate Victorian in Alameda, California. They’re on Facebook, too.

The New Porker-hilarious blog recently discovered

“Reachinguptopia” blogger (very handsome if that’s really him in the photo or it could be Mario Lopez) responded to my writing contests entry and that lead me to a blog he follows: The New Porker.

Although Porker refers to animal excretions more than this princess likes, he/she has a very funny Onionesse quality. And love the piggy theme!

About Madcap Mary

Published book author, humorist, “Auntie Mame” devotee, with many and varied interests, “Madcap” Mary lives the “vida loca” in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Her eccentric ideas, outspoken opinions about everything and spirited refusal to be “beige” have endeared her to many (and also infuriated many). A princess by nature, Madcap Mary dreams of a villa in Italy but must be content with a tiny bungalow in the heart of redneck country.
