One of the things I do in real life is record content for e-learning lessons. It's a good living. One of the pitfalls however, is that when you go to record something that you previously recorded, you have to listen to it again. Or you just dive right in, re-record it, and let it go. … Continue reading Nuance Dragon Pro
I worked out in the field doing real work for nearly 30 years and I've run into two different types of trades dudes in that time. There are the guys that buy the cheapest tools they possibly can, with the reasoning that somebody's going to steal them so why bother spending any kind of dough. … Continue reading Victorinox Chef’s knife.
Lord and Master of my life, Take from me the spirit of laziness, discouragement, lust of power, and idle talk. Instead grant to me, your servant, the spirit of purity, humility, patience, and love. My Lord and King, grant me the grace to be aware of my own sins and refrain from judging others; for … Continue reading St. Ephrem the Syrian
Saturday the wife and I went to mass, masks and everything. It was worth it. I've missed it. The first reading was from Micah, chapter 2; Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. … Continue reading Things Never Change

Their strange ways and license plates. Mostly the license plates, and the cars (which I'll get to in a bit). When I … Continue reading Damn Foreigners….

End of Discussion. For instance back in the day if you are partying in Georgetown in … Continue reading Some thoughts on the recent nuttiness

I like math so, for instance, when one of my cancer doctor said I had an 85 to 95% chance of being cured by just doing chemo and radiation, as opposed to surgery which had … Continue reading Some thoughts on Covid
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
