I don't know where I found this. But I went on the site, sized it up, then left. I'm literally getting hammered with Ads for this stupid product with an even dumber name nearly everywhere I go. Each video you have a whiny millenial voice complaining on how hard it is to maintain a lawn … Continue reading Make it Stop
I'm on my way this morning to a convention of the vast right wing conspiracy, otherwise known as the Knights of Columbus. It's the second one I've attended, and hopefully the first where I don't get food poisoning. The first was easy to figure out. I was riding with a friend, and we stopped at … Continue reading On the Road
https://youtu.be/Oo9buo9Mtos No lamentations here. What is best? Today? Sitting here having a cold beer, looking at my freshly mowed lawn. The sense of satisfaction is great. You know what's next? When it's raining, tomorrow or Sunday, sitting in my sunroom, having an adult beverage, listening to the rain falling on a freshly mowed lawn. This … Continue reading What is Best in Life?
Now that I'm done the floor, I have a stack of projects around here to do. And what better thing than to post these on a weekly basis. I found this on Kenny's site, I think: Damn straight. Not enough of this happening these days. BTW - This is what my son went through and … Continue reading Let Papa Fix It

Phil at Busted Knuckles had a great piece the other day about a days worth of encounters where people just couldn't fix stuff and didn't even think to try. Worst … Continue reading Last of a Dying Breed
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…
Last Friday we had a company-wide day off, called a "day of reflection". For what I’m supposed to be reflecting on I don’t remember, but I reflected on finally installing the tile floor in our sunroom. It’s a project that’s been looming heavy for some time. I want to say I’ve had the tiles almost … Continue reading I’m too old for this.
Being in the IT industry, I’m loaded with technology, including several computers. I have a laptop for work of course, which is a beast. It’s a ThinkPad X1 carbon that’s only about two years old. Got an 8th generation i7 processor, 24 gig of RAM, and a retina type display. I got to order it … Continue reading The Big Migration
It's been a long week. I've been off for it all, since my company takes the week between Christmas and New Years off, worldwide. Nice. I've tried getting as many projects done as I could, one small, one big per day. I have a stack of tile in the garage - the floor for the … Continue reading Job Satisfaction
Every man gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission. And for my sins they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service.Capt. Benjamin Willard in Apocalypse Now The boy brought his old hoopty over to do some repairs. He has a new car and really doesn't need an eleven year old … Continue reading Too old for this?
