How the hell have I never posted my favorite 'newer' band? (meaning one with dudes not my age) https://youtu.be/Itzej2AmzaE Man, Lost another, way too soon. https://youtu.be/ih90wHya6ng I'm tired of being what you want me to beFeeling so faithless, lost under the surfaceI don't know what you're expecting of mePut under the pressure of walking in … Continue reading Sunday Music
I've been off this week, burning more use-it-or-lose-it PTO. I had big plans. The garage needs cleaning, the mulch needs shoveling, I have planting to do. Very little got done. I've felt crummy in the beginning, and still am having issues. I thought it may be the Coof, but now I'm nearly certain it's allergies. … Continue reading A week…gone.
The weather is changing here in North Texas. The way I describe it is that sometime in May/June, someone waddles over to the big weather furnace and turns it one. This year, it was late, well after a cool, wet spring. From that point, it's hot. Damn hot. Africa hot. Then, sometime in September/October they … Continue reading Dogs, We don’t Deserve Them
Awhile back I subscribed to Consumer Reports. I think we were looking at cars and they shilled a car review book for subscribing. I remember, back in the day, my dad would buy the magazine. I'd read it, and find it interesting if only somewhat useful to me at the time. So I subscribed. And … Continue reading Goodbye, Consumer Reports
Probably one of the best books to make sense of what's happening these days is "The Fourth Turning" by Strauss and Howe. I've mentioned it before. The concept is that every 80-90 years, those that are in power have not only forgotten the painful lessons from their forefathers, they flat out ignore them thinking they … Continue reading The Fourth Turning
WordPress appears to have updated it's interface. No email. No "Hey, we've improved things" banner when you sign in. Just up and changed. I know. Inside baseball. Who cares? Apparently, it's still a work in progress. Another irritation. What's it doing? Well, they've changed what I see as I type. It now appears as Times … Continue reading Why, Oh Lord, Why?
After my apple watch fell apart, I vowed to give up watches. I went years, decades really, with just my phone as a time source. Then, the issues started. Although I didn't care for the apple watch monitoring everything about my life, it had a few features that I find really handy. I like alerts … Continue reading Wyze Band
She's a weird chick. But this is a compelling version of the song. It's about Ireland's war for independence from the Brits. https://youtu.be/-9UXN-uTFak Back through the glen I rode again, and my heart with grief was soreFor I parted with those valiant men whom I'll never shall see moreBut to and fro in my dreams … Continue reading Sunday Music
I pretty much will wear a hat whenever I will be outside for any period of time. Reason being, I'm bald, and it's Texas where your noggin can get fried in under an hour. So I have a collection of baseball caps. Reason for a collection is I destroy them. You sweat like a champion … Continue reading Fixing Hats
More Irish Music. I first saw Dervish at the Irish Festival in Gaithersburg Maryland. To say they are compelling is an understatement. I can watch Cathy Jordan sing all day long. https://youtu.be/7mdpci6qDe0 Red Haired Mary This one is great. A compelling story, a lesson easily translatable to today's times. For the life of me I … Continue reading Sunday Music
