70 miles and a world apart

The Thiel College Choir gave a concert last night at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenville, PA.

Today the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh sang the memorial concert at Pentecostal Temple Church of God in Christ for our conductor's father.
These photos were taken with my iPhone.

Outside the box

Tim isn't thinking outside the box. She IS outside the box and almost into the kitchen.

Happy π Day

Spring will come despite 15° this morning

The daffys have buds but they are a long way from blooming.

The frigid temps this morning didn't bother the croci. The yellow ones are new today. There is also one white one. The purples are still blooming like crazy.

And the 40 year old poinsettia's red bracts grace the (rather dirty) front door.

I live in my car

so while others set aside corners or closets for special things, I put them in my car. Barely visible at the bottom on the dash is my angel that says Dorothy on the front. Dort gave it to me years ago so she could go along on my travels. I believe this is the third car it has occupied.

The tags and lapel pin on the left were attached to a gift bag I received on my first visit to The Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross in North East, PA in August 2008. I use the mug that was in the bag regularly but not in the car.

On the right (but not the corner of the 5081 tab card I use for notes) is a star Sharecropper made for my Christmas tree. A photo of Bishop Maya Pavlova is attached with a Canterbury Cross given to me by our organist/choirmaster when I became Episcopal.

I'm still entertaining ideas for a new blogger name. See below.

Name change? (updated)

Now that I'm a real "Piskie", I'm wondering if I should change my blog name PseudoPiskie to something else. I believe it was Jane who commented that we are all a little "pseudo". I'm tempted to keep it but also to change. Should I keep PseudoPiskie? If not, what should I choose? For those of you who do not already know, my name is Shelley.

(update) I still can't find the reference but I believe it was either Margaret or Lisa who said we are all pseudo...
