Screw politics and Covid. Let's look at something more gratifying, like seafood. I'm a big fan of one or two pot cooking. And more often than not, I have stuff that's been in the freezer awhile, and makes for a fast, easy meal. This one I came up with because the first time I tried … Continue reading Sunday Cooking – Shrimp & Cod
I didn't watch the debates last night, because I couldn't be bothered. What's the point of watching orangeman argue with the demented geriatric? Other than obviously entertainment value. I did, however, read Stephen Green's DrunkBlog. That is how to do these things. Trump, back in 2016, was clearly the least worst choice. Having been in … Continue reading The choice is clear
Recently, I've gotten into Joe Rogan podcasts. Most of the time, he has nobodies on which I couldn't care less about. But I tune in when I recognize the guests. For instance, His interview with Ron White was great. That's the exact kind of thing I like to listen to when I'm working. I caught … Continue reading St. George in Retirement
Didn't have a family at the time. But I've been there. https://www.youtube.com/embed/c0ymjv3RO7Q
I have good days and bad days. Maybe a better way to say it is that some days I'm off my game. It used to frustrate me and make me angry, but then I found the signs of impending doom, and head them off at the pass. I learned this finishing drywall, of all things. … Continue reading I’m having a bad, bad day…
My grandmother was one of the few in my family tree to grow old. I think there's maybe three that lasted past the age of 70. Every now and then, when we'd chat she'd say "Don't grow old". At the time, I blew it off. What did I know? I was a dumb kid. I'm … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old
I hate bloggers that beef about the interfaces being changed. But FFS, I started typing today and the @!_($)!@_$ interface went nuts. Why? Why, Oh Lord, do they change this stuff? Back to the subject at hand. When my kids first started working, I gave them a few simple concepts as advice: Show up when … Continue reading Starting Work.
I was playing with my fancy Dragon software, recording one of my rants, and thought to myself; "this is great I should publish this!" Then I looked and saw I had a very similar rant already published. So this is how things go. But I will take the best parts of that rant and scribe … Continue reading The Continuing Crisis
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.
