Getting Used To The New No-BallCap Rule

My days of looking less ugly at work are over. Working with food, I am required to wear a hairnet. Up until recently, I have always worn a cap over it. I am not particularly given to wear a cap otherwise, but at work I would wear one over my hairnet so that I would look less ugly. This is not a... Sign in to see full entry.

Antarctica: Alarmist Researchers Put Themselves Into An Alarming Situation

"Tourists" were stranded on an icebound ship in the Antarctic. That was the way the bulk of the media reported it. But those were not just any tourists. Those were researchers heading into the Antarctic to demonstrably find proof that global warming is occurring. However, they had to be rescued out... Sign in to see full entry.

The Mere Mention Of "God" Does NOT Constitute A Theocracy

To some liberals I know, the very mention of "God" to them consitutes a theocracy. We are just sooo oppressed by our currency that circulates and states "In God We Trust." I know these liberals from the book discussion group that I sometimes attend. The latest book we discussed showcased what a real... Sign in to see full entry.

Bump Dialing Snafus

Over the past couple days, I gave friends a bumpy ride--due to bump dials. On my work day two mornings ago, I accidentally bumped my cell phone and heard a ring. I looked at my phone and saw that my California friend's name was highlighted. No doubt, I had called him while he was still sleeping. I... Sign in to see full entry.

My Version Of Trail Mix

I have gathered the ingredients from the bulk bins: roasted peanuts, yogurt raisins, chocolate chips, and black licorice. Now I need to hit the trail. I will probably bring it on my next cross country skiing outing. To me, the licorice and the yogurt raisins complement the roasted peanuts perfectly.... Sign in to see full entry.

One For Three Writing Dates For The New Year

"January 2, 2014."- -That is what I wrote, very conscientiously, when I wrote my first check for the year. The next two times I wrote the date, however, I slipped-- 2013 on the second check I wrote and, oddly enough, 2 -3-14 when I wrote out a date for the third time this year. Be patient with me. I...

Weed: Another Cash Crop

Potheads, I heard, are braving the adverse winter traveling conditions in order to buy marijuana to put to their lips. They are licking their chops, and so are the few state governments that have legalized marijuana. In Washington state, a tax adjustment is being made that adversely affects the...

"Hockey Night In Canada": A Misnomer?

Canucks may consider me to be a nit-picky Yankee when I question the tagline I saw yesterday. While watching a bowl game at Boston's, I saw on another screen the National Hockey League coverage of the Winter Classic. The tagline was "Hockey Night In Canada." True enough, one of the teams playing was... Sign in to see full entry.

The Ritual Of New Year's

For no other holiday do we stay up intentionally until twelve midnight. If we probe this more deeply, it is odd indeed. What significance is there really to being vigilant until that moment when time--an abstract human construct--rings the seconds that jump from one year to the next? Could we not do...

Christmas Holiday Week Lethargy

Lethargy and a general laziness has overtaken me as of late. Perhaps that is acceptable for one time of the year. I am still off from work, but I have not been doing much of anything. Mostly lounging. I have slept in later than usual and not even bothered with the normal routine. That must have... Sign in to see full entry.
