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

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'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
