https://youtu.be/DXI4W1P7buQ And I have no wife to blame me, I've no chains upon my hands. I take my ease at what I please, 'Cause I'm a rambling man. Happy St. Patrick's day. Don't be fooled by the green beer. Irish don't drink that. Drink some Guinness instead. It's only 140 calories or so. They aren't … Continue reading Happy St. Paddy’s day

What’re You Giving Up?
Lent started this last Wednesday. Lent is a solemn season where Catholics prepare for Easter by fasting, abstinence and more. Basically, by behaving. Adam Piggott has a good piece here about Lent this year for him. It'll be just the same for me. Each lent I try giving up this or that, but usually fail. … Continue reading What’re You Giving Up?
Get a Dog. Die Alone.
Looks like Don lemon has stepped on his knob claiming that Nikki Haley is past her prime. Being a Homo, he probably doesn't understand heterosexual sexual market value (SMV). In a nutshell, the SMV basically says that since men want women that are younger, fit, not tattooed, and debt free, once a woman gets to … Continue reading Get a Dog. Die Alone.
Welcome to Planet Real World
We're having a bit of a Tech meltdown. I've seen this one before. Got the t-shirt. Been my third, at least. What's different about this one is the sheer number of spoiled tech workers. I've seen videos from Twitter and Google employees. This is the latest one I've seen: https://youtu.be/7sGBLFi_WCI The Twitter one was nearly … Continue reading Welcome to Planet Real World
That’s gonna leave a mark.
I was at the dentist the other day getting a filling repaired. It wasn't usual dentist, since he was too busy with another patient. Fair enough, I've often been the one that breaks into the schedule in the middle of the day to have something or another looked at. While they were working the doctor … Continue reading That’s gonna leave a mark.
It's been sunny and nice the last few days. So I've had time to size up the estate here. I'm thinking my olive trees took a beating in the little cold snap we had a few weeks ago. I covered them with heavy canvas, piled leaves around them, and put a heating pad at their … Continue reading Not Good
Damn near forgot
Today was my mom's birthday. She was a great lady. Her dad dying when she was three, her mom at ten, she grew up poor and worked her way up to being an RN, when she met my dad. She ruled the roost. If our family was a corporation, she was the CFO/COO. She was … Continue reading Damn near forgot
When in Rome…
...do as the Romans. The new year is off to a rough start. I was off between Christmas and New Year's, and as tradition, I wasn't well for most of it. I had a flu like thing hit before Christmas, and it really hadn't gone away until a few days ago. Add to that the … Continue reading When in Rome…
We survived the last freeze of 2022. All two days of it. Christmas Eve it was well above freezing. Enough to take the dogs out for a walk. They took the time to relish every last leaf pile they came upon. They had a lot of sniffing to catch up on, having not had walks … Continue reading Merry Christmas
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
