Kim DuToit goes off on Grammar from time to time. I love these posts, because he's right and I agree with him. What people do to the English language is a sin and a crime against humanity. What makes me nuts most of all is when words are changed and people start repeating them like … Continue reading Words I Hate
What a day! A cold front is coming through here, and it's safe to say that the North Texas summertime furnace has been turned off. It will barely hit 85 today, and it'll be cool tonight. Right now, it's sunny and amazing. Couldn't have happened at a better time for me. The heat, dust, pollution … Continue reading Bible Study
https://youtu.be/iIL5_G3d2QI Epic Last time I was sober, man I felt bad. Was the worst hangover I ever had. It took six hamburgers, scotch all night, nicotine for breakfast to put me right...
I'm sitting here, typing. Listening to tunes. We count our blessings one by oneYet we have forgotten how to giveIt seems that we don't want to faceAll the hungry and homeless who struggle to liveBut heaven is watching tonightTugging at our hearts to do what's rightWho Will Save the Children, Randy Stonehill If you want … Continue reading Tugging at the Heart
Hopefully the last Jasper update. So thanks to the labor day holiday, Jasper had to wait another two days to get his stitches out. It was a tough morning. He had beaten his 'reusable' cone to death and learned how to remove it. It's sitting on the counter, dirty and battered. It took no time … Continue reading Jasper Update
When I first heard this song on his album, I figured it was a goofy country song. You know, wife left me and took the dog kind of thing. https://youtu.be/jK_9ppta_M0 Turns out it wasn't. On the live CD, Emmylou Harris tells how she loves Mark Knopfler's songs. There's always a story. When they were prepping … Continue reading Sunday Music, on Saturday.
I'm not getting the vaccine fetish. I'm data driven. And we have tons of data on what works and what doesn't to prevent and cure COVID. Washing your hands, staying away from sick people works. Masks work to some extent, as does the vaccine. But the vaccine isn't anywhere near as effective as advertised. Not.Even.Close. … Continue reading Vax Psychosis
I've been playing around with ArtFlow, trying to get a reasonable likeness of myself. It came pretty close. Close My beard is no longer as full, but it is a full one these days. Compare it to a graphic my son-on-law made for me: Me with no grey I'll try and find a real shot … Continue reading Say, That’s a Reasonable Likeness
We spent some time checking in with our financial planners. Good news is, I'm not going to have to work five years after I'm dead in order to retire. We both could call "no mas" and go part time at 65, if we wanted. Which we plan to do. This is all predicated on no … Continue reading Planning for the Future
I hate Interstate batteries. They are the only ones that have consistently failed me over these many years. The last one I had was in a 94 Camry twenty years ago. I pulled into the garage at work, turned the car off. Then for whatever reason turned it back on - I think I forgot … Continue reading Hating on Interstate Batteries
