I meant to write a short post, laughing at one of the senior moments I've been having lately, but I figured I'd plug something great while I build up what set me up for this moment. I found Duluth Trading when I was looking to score some dude stuff to add to the son and … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old…
Last week, I was on vacation. When the company I worked for was assimilated, I had tons of vacation. When they finally moved us over, we were allowed to roll our vacation. It'll be the last time that happens. This is a use-it-or-lose-it company. So with the new year, I got 20 days, and they … Continue reading A glimpse of the struggle
When does someone have Agency? When is someone responsible for their actions? When is someone held accountible? This week a number of Texas democrats fled to DC to evade their responsibilities and lobby for a patently unconstitutional bill. What I'm wondering is; Who's paying for this? Who's paying for the chartered jets? You see, the … Continue reading When Does Adulting Start?
Had the week off last week, and tried like hell to get stuff done that has been languishing around here for weeks. I still need to finish my network. I have the extra access point up, but couldn't do much else. Herself was home all week as well, and I can't drop the interwebs while … Continue reading Still Fun, but I got to work at it more.
It's been a slow morning. Got back from walking the dogs and sat down to send a group email about a friend's wife dying. They are an older couple, and she had some sort of operation that went pear-shaped. I'm at an age now where this sort of thing happens more frequently than I'd like. … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old
Over 20 years ago, when we lived in Virginia, gardening was easy. I'd helped my Dad with his garden for years. I grew up with overflowing fresh produce. There would be so many tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers we'd pickle. He'd make salsa. It's tough to eat store bought greenhouse tomatoes when you've had them off … Continue reading At long last…
We had announcements from ERCOT that it would be best if we turned up our thermostats. Energy crunch a-comin'. ERCOT is that poorly named 'reliability' council for electric power here in Texas. This winter we had a freeze and electric power was anything but reliable. To put it bluntly, they mismanaged the grid so bad … Continue reading Geez, they’re at it again
I was watching a flick on Amazon and noticed the big guy gripped by the actions. FWIW, the movie is called 'Memorial Day' and it features James Cromwell - who has been in tons of movies and TV, usually as a character actor, or bad guy. Here, he's the grandfather that was in WW2 that … Continue reading Jet watches TV
I was surfing on Amazon the other day and hit a documentary on Gordon Lightfoot. Wow. Words fail. When I hear songs and lyrics, and learn what they were about and why they were written, they stick. And this dude has many over a very long career. Boss Man Boss Man what do ya sayI … Continue reading Wow. Who knew?
https://vimeo.com/560654050 I work at home. And more often than not, there's a dog at my feet. So today, you see Jasper...Snoring loudly. The background noise you hear is my phone picking up the fans on my camera system, network, and tower. I have a boatload of voiceover work that has to be done. The background … Continue reading Just want to work here…
