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.
A few years ago, I was having a phone interview that a friend of mine setup. I really wasn't looking for a job. But this was a well known company, an industry standard, and one whose products I've used and liked for years. It went well enough, however, my friends boss told him it didn't … Continue reading There’s no I in my AI
My son in law is into pizza. He's got a propane pizza oven, makes his own dough. So my son bought him a pizza peel, from Ooni. Behold: That's the way it showed up. That's also the way it's replacement showed up. Seems easy enough to fix. That's not a joint. The joints held. What … Continue reading Let Papa Fix It
My life is complete. Proton has released Proton Calendar for IoS. Doesn't seem like a big deal. But it is to me. I can't sync my phone to my work computer. I sync to outlook on my personal machine, but that results in two calendars - one for Outlook, one for my iPhone. Great. I … Continue reading Gonna be a Great Day, Tater.
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
News this week was that the consumer product safety commission want's to ban our gas stoves. More here. Then they said no, we weren't planning on that. Apparently, it had to do with rascisms. The output of the gas stove hurts the poor and vibrant's cognitive ability. Sure. I think that's a chicken and egg … Continue reading Yeah…That’s a Big Fat Nope.
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
Adam Piggot closed off his comments, just like Vox Day did awhile ago. Why? Gamma sperging, that's why. Can't say as I blame him. There's a population on the web that you can tell has never taken a shot to the gob for mouthing off. They feel entitled to leave horrible comments on blogs and … Continue reading A Damn Shame
I've seen this floating around quite a bit: I can't argue with much of that. At the Tom Thumb I frequent, the carts can be found in these concrete holders in the parking lot. It's rare that one is loose in the wild. But the WalMart near me? Fuggeddaboutit. Carts everywhere. And just not in … Continue reading Truth
Every morning after walking, the two dogs love to play. Aria will get into a mode where she fetches nonstop for 15 minutes or so. https://vimeo.com/786726174 I was at it for a good ten minutes before thinking to grab my phone to video. Normally she'll drop whatever she's chasing at my feet. When she's tuckering … Continue reading Friday Dog
