Happy Third Anniversaire MrsEnginerd!

My severance package allowed for a much deserved sabbatical after 10 uninterrupted years of service as a design engineer. In theory, this experience as an engineer would open any door I chose to unlock but I […]

La Junta de Control Fiscal en Facebook

En lo que sólo se puede atribuir a la creatividad Boricua, hay un espacio satírico en Facebook que se dedica a comunicarse como si fuese la susodicha Junta de Control Fiscal. Ya que la política Estado Unidense no es un circo, para nada, unos ciudadanos desconocidos decidieron capitalizar la ironía de la situación para informar al […]

MrsEnginerd’s 2016 Year in Review

This year was riddled with so much bad luck that even the monthly reads for the blog ended on low viewership. The reader fatigue on the new house escapades alone made for the slump in hits, but the poems and reviews are still holding strong. We had over 5,000 hits total for over 300 posts. […]
