Don't Get Freaked Out, but...

This is an article from TheGuardian.com, March 30, 2018. Dylan Curran is in Ireland. He states much more in the article, and includes links, but I did not include any links. Maybe what he is saying doesn't matter, maybe it does. These days we live with the idea that there is a possibility that... Sign in to see full entry.

Kids Hear "Things"

Here's a list of words that resonate deeply with children. I know. I heard them. Probably you did, too. Adults may have been complimenting a parent using many of these terms to describe his/her child, or someone else's, but to a kid's ear, any of these words seemed like they could be something...

It's JUST a Virus - But Don't they Kill People?

At the moment... I hate doctors. There, I said it! I never go to visit them voluntarily. NEVER. But when when I'm coughing in fits for 30 hours straight, and there's enough phlegm coming up to fill a half a liter container, I'll turn myself in. Usually, they don't want me to knock off, and will... Sign in to see full entry.

Sick Today

I've had a touch of a flu virus this week, the kind that gives you a headache, sore throat, earache, runny nose, deep, deep chest cough, no voice and cuts your breath. Saw the doc today. That was a waste. She said to call if I don't get better. I thought that's why I was there in the first place!... Sign in to see full entry.

We Have Ways, M'am...

Many, many years ago, when we lived elsewhere, our next door neighbor decided he'd move closer to his parents temporarily, and rent out his house until he returned. Our new neighbor (the tenant) was a divorcée with a boy in middle school. She seemed nice enough. She had a boyfriend who had an... Sign in to see full entry.

After 2,000 years...

Anything new? I've been watching the baseball playoffs. I don't watch much of any sport on TV, but once in a while I'll watch a game here and there. I was immediately distracted by the advertisements lining the inside of the field walls, and my thoughts wandered over to ancient Rome. The Colosseum... Sign in to see full entry.

Broken Glasses and Where the Homeless Eat

Normally this title would be a non sequitur heading, each phrase seemingly having nothing to do with the other. But not this time. My TV-watching glasses broke last week. They are very fragile, lightweight single-vision lens glasses from Costco. Costco's been rated highly for their quality of... Sign in to see full entry.

Dinner was Served...

Last night we blessedly missed the Friday night traffic through town, found a parking space close to the Cheesecake Factory entrance and got seated quickly. Best of all we missed being rained upon during a pretty wild electrical storm. Our daughter arrived promptly at 6, in spite of having left... Sign in to see full entry.

Tales from the Trenches

We're meeting my one daughter for dinner in a while, so I'll catch up with everyone later. Meanwhile, here's a quick true story for ya. Years ago at work, one morning my boss, a lady, came into my office and also invited a woman in from another section. This other person was not too bright, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Hoarders, Part II

How Well Do You Know Your Relatives? My previous post about the hoarding neighbor was inspired by something my sister told me about a relative, and one of our cousins, at that! Apparently my cousin whose wife recently passed away is a hoarder! None of us ever knew it or had even the slightest hint.... Sign in to see full entry.
