The light at the end of the tunnel of my cancer journey turned out to be an actual light and not a train. I'm finally ending this chapter of my life. I was due to visit my radiation doctor for what was really a six year visit. Normally, it's five years before the cut you … Continue reading That light at the end of the tunnel…was a light.
King of the Hill is a funny show. Even more so if you live in Texas. I swear I've met every type of character portrayed in the show in real life. I had a boss at one time that was eerily similar to Hank Hill. He once lectured me on lawns and grass for an … Continue reading The simple pleasures
I'm not a huge coffee drinker. Coffee and Alcohol do about the same thing to my guts. I'll go for some time with neither. Then, I'll start drinking coffee. I'll have a cup, then think all is well and I start drinking it every day. After a few weeks, my guts are sour and will … Continue reading Eurolux Percolator
We've just started Lent. For those Godless, Lent is when Catholics like me remember Christ's 40 days in the desert, found in the beginnings of Matthew and Luke, chapter 4, and try to emulate it. It's a time where we seek to examine our lives and seek to make changes. I prefer the advice of … Continue reading Lent

We rebuilt our kitchen, and the contractor thought "Hey, it'd be useful to have an outlet at the … Continue reading USB outlets
I'm not the best writer in the world. I know this. But it's also not my job. But I read a lot. Have for years. I have to do it professionally, I do it for entertainment. So I really appreciate good writers. If you write for a living, a journalist maybe, you should have some … Continue reading Bad Grammar
I read somewhere once that Billy Joel was asked now that he was older, did he miss anything? His answer was "competence". I can't agree more. I find myself saying, over and over, "Ah..for chrissakes, can't you just do your job?" What really gets my goat is when they (whoever it is) is working hard … Continue reading Can’t you just do your damn job?
If you haven't been following the travels of Roosh this last year, you should hit his YouTube channel and watch them. I've enjoyed the series tremendously. So, done with his travel, he appears to be gearing up to migrate into the wilderness by buying a truck, and put out a video of what he looked … Continue reading Roosh Buys a Truck
Now that we don't have kids at home, we have dogs. These are the first ones we've owned. While the kids were growing up, my thinking was I didn't need yet another being to clean up after. Especially after our kids were potty trained. That and the recollection of the dogs my family had growing … Continue reading Knock it off, you aren’t the Dog Whisperer
