Snow. And a Sales Pitch.

Posted by Les Becker on November 30, 2010 in Artsy Fartsy, Les Becker Designs, Season's Greetings! |

I got up this past Saturday morning to no hot water. Not “run out of hot water” no hot water – I mean, “no water coming out of the tap” no hot water, so… No shower for me. Luckily, as it turns out, because I was surprised (oddly, considering I’ve lived in the Great White […]

The $5 School Cake…

Chocolate

When Ruby was a young girl, her school in Northland had a fair once a year, in the spring. It offered the usual school fair “stuff” of the era; games of chance, 4H projects, etc., and students could show off (and sell) their needlework and baked goods. One year, Ruby won a needlepoint contest – […]

Bento Boxes…

Posted by Les Becker on November 18, 2010 in Zenishness... |

You would think I could have it both ways. Tha “art” of building a bento box is, apparently, a lesson in meditation. One learns patience and serenity blah, blah, blah while getting the food ready to pack, and then designing a pleasing arrangement in the container. It gets really complicated if you try to take […]

“Ugly Casserole”

Posted by Les Becker on November 15, 2010 in Recipes |

Ugly Casserole is as simple as it gets. You can’t get much more simple than 3 ingredients: ground meat of any kind, a couple of potatoes, and a can of beans. The ground meat can be anything – what you see here is a combination of ground chicken and ground Ummm. Something – I just […]

Karma, Zen, & a $60 Waste of Cellophane…

Posted by Les Becker on November 8, 2010 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

Seriously. SIXTY. DOLLARS. I mean, really: Holy shit! I had to remind myself (repeatedly) through Halloweén week of my recently adopted “Zen” Attitude. Throughout the scrubbing of ketchup and peeling of chewed-up chewing gum from doorknobs (actually, I thought that was hilarious, but that’s just because Ky, AKA Robin, was the one to turn the […]

Kyla Wuz Heer…

Posted by Les Becker on October 16, 2010 in Artsy Fartsy, Wall Panels |

I now occupy the attic space that Kyla first commandeered when we moved up out of the one-room basement apartment we had shared for 18 months. She didn’t stay here long, a couple of months at most, before declaring the space to be too big (?!) and begging me to trade places with her. It […]

The Burglar Song

Posted by Les Becker on July 30, 2009 in Radio Les, The Landlady |

The Burglar FrogTaken July 29, 2009 with Canon PowerShot A550 Ruby has this motion sensor frog ornament in her breezeway. I don’t like the thing, because I forget that it’s there, and every time I go to visit her it croaks at me and scares the shit out of me. Every single time. I once […]
