Welcome to Texas! They've been predicting shitstorms all day. It was supposed to start in the morning, so I was planning on working all day, no dog walking. But it didn't. So, I walked the dogs, then went back to work. After lunch, the sun came out. So I hit a dilemma. Today is a … Continue reading And So it Begins…

Descent into Hell, Part 2
I thought my trip to the mall was bad, what came next was even worse. I was over helping my wife with the grandkids a week prior, and they all were sick. No matter, I generally don't get these things. Not a day later the missus was laid low by a godawful flu. At least … Continue reading Descent into Hell, Part 2
Descent into Hell, Part 1
The mobile started misbehaving even worse than usual the other day. I'd been getting a day or so out of a charge, and marketly less so if I used it at all. I started noticing that I couldn't surf really well, and got to thinking it had been sometime that I've seen a 5G icon. … Continue reading Descent into Hell, Part 1
Riding the Pain Train
It's been a horrible week, for a number of reasons. Some self inflicted, some not. I've been fighting a cold and stomach bug nearly all week. It's not the coof. My sinuses were stuffed (not dripping, inflamed), My stomach's been on the edge of nausea, and I'm not sleeping well. The sinus medication wrecks my … Continue reading Riding the Pain Train
Can’t Find Good Help
Divemedic had a post up a week or so about how bad things are getting in the hospital business. He had a followup here. In a nutshell, there's a shortage of qualifed medical staff, for a number of reasons. To overcome this, hospitals were paying silly money and bonuses for existing and new nurses and … Continue reading Can’t Find Good Help
Are you kidding?
Damn, I hate windows... Why do they do this? Why do I need to go and figure out how to make it stop? I don't want memories of this day. I spent it working. I'm drinking beer, as I shouldn't, to forget today. Nobs. I'm a pro. I don't need this on my machine. I … Continue reading Are you kidding?
Third World Enterprise
There's a certain type of person you run into any time you are trying to do anything that time means nothing. Nor, apparently do the words "Appointment" and "Reservation" mean much either. Jerry Seinfeld did a bit about this on his show. I had fender bender (actually more of a door bender) with my car. … Continue reading Third World Enterprise
Amazon Free Month
I may declare May into June to be Amazon Free. Meaning I don't buy anything from them during the rest of month of May and half of June. I'm starting to get all manner of innocuous crap from them that I could've just as easily gotten somewhere local. Hell, their prices aren't even that good … Continue reading Amazon Free Month
What is it about old dudes that makes them think that everybody's interested in what they have to say? And can positively not whisper, even if they thought to not just blurt out stuff. I belong to a number of clubs and charitable organizations. Lot of these have old guys. Hell, I'm an old guy. … Continue reading OK Boomer…
Don’t Answer the Door
Don't answer the door. Never answer the door. I have a cameras that enable me to not answer the door. What did I do? I answered the door. Just like this: https://vimeo.com/551250163 Except that guy left. This time, a dude rocked up and I ignored him. Then he came up with another dude a few … Continue reading Don’t Answer the Door
