Before I start, let me explain the title. Back in my misguided youth I worked on commercial sound systems, Muzak to be exact. It was actually a cool job. For every food store or office I'd install, I'd have 2-3 bars. I can't explain to anyone not a musician how cool it is to light … Continue reading Heat is discomfort cold is pain.
I love my dogs. Each has a unique personality. They also share one thing in common; a zest for tearing apart stuff. It isn't tough to prevent destruction. Simply put stuff you don't want to lose out of their reach. I can't remember the last time I left shoes out. They aren't without sense though. … Continue reading Choose your Destructor…
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
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 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.
Saturday the wife and I went to mass, masks and everything. It was worth it. I've missed it. The first reading was from Micah, chapter 2; Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. … Continue reading Things Never Change
Politics is getting really stupid these days. We have many, many politicians that have no clue how anything works. And worse yet, no clue how their constituents live or what is important to them. Could be the Dunning-Kruger effect. Although more than likely, It's a combination of all of these factors. And, as we've seen … Continue reading Politics is stupid…
I'm not the best writer in the world. I know this. But it's also not my job. But I read a lot. Have for years. I have to do it professionally, I do it for entertainment. So I really appreciate good writers. If you write for a living, a journalist maybe, you should have some … Continue reading Bad Grammar
The actual line is; "Fuckit, I'm old. Gimme free shit", from Justin Halpern's Sh*t my Dad Says." Pretty funny book. That said, I don't feel old. But there's been a lot of "huh...wonder why they said that" going on with me. For instance, I've had a few older ladies, at social functions, ask me "Are you … Continue reading [Screwit] I’m old. Gimme free [stuff]
My city got battered by the most intense storm I've ever witnessed Sunday. That said, I've been through tropical storms, including some good Texas ones, but I've normally slept through them. What's funny is nearly zero of the smart tech devices I have gave me any warning whatsoever. We went to Mass, then breakfast. All … Continue reading That was one big assed storm
