*This is a repost. I have not forgotten, Rahma. The attacks of 9/11 will never be forgotten, nor will most of us forget what we were doing, where we were, or the feelings that flooded through us when we first heard the news. Our thoughts, fears, feelings, and ideals were solid, etched in stone. For […]

“But I like going to the bank!” My company is about to go to biweekly paydays. We just got the notice today. For some reason, we couldn’t go with direct deposit while receiving weekly pay, but this new schedule will enable us to do so. I’m cool with that. But, even though I do like […]

No snow. No trip to the mountains. Friend no have functional 4×4. There’ll be more opportunities. But until I see snow, it can’t officially be the holiday season. Tuli fog or no…

‘Tis the beginning of the holiday season. Again, it doesn’t feel like it… it’s not cold, and nary a snowflake to be seen. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to a holiday season without snow. First Florida, and now this… In a little less than two weeks, I’m home for ten days. One […]

Cell phones. I could care less about the damn things. Oh, I’ve got one… a prepaid Nokia crapphone. It does what I need it to do. There’s nothing fancy about it. No pictures, just calls. It does have texting, but that is used only sparingly. Taking ten minutes to type out five seconds worth of […]

Got in a rush while running through the grocery store, and now I pay. While blasting through the cookie aisle, I thought, “Why the hell not?,” and grabbed a couple of packs of cookies. Scanning is not good. The dark double chocolate cookies are fine. But what I thought should be good chocolate chip cookies […]

While some fear her, she is willing to share some of that power… give us mortals a sampling. Being down here in the “lightning capitol of the world,” I get to watch her […]

(A conspiratorial Guest Post from Tammi of Tammi’s World, with help from Harvey of Bad Example) Kind of a big day throughout history. 1) July 9, 1810 – Napoleon officially makes Holland part of his empire. Greedy French bastard. But, you do gotta admit, he was probably the last Frenchman with balls. 2) July 9, […]
