Biggest Decision

Decisions are not usually difficult for me to make. I know myself pretty well, know my mind, what I believe, what I think about various subjects, and people. The biggest decision I had to make today was not whether to go vote, not for whom to vote, but whether to drive around the woods to get... Sign in to see full entry.

In Search Of Verity

So, I talked to Florida Son again today, because I had a feeling that I had not really been listening to what he said yesterday. Sometimes I do that. I can appear to be listening with my mind a million miles away, in and out, with "Uh-huh's" in the right places, to make me appear at attention.... Sign in to see full entry.

Rent Day

I know this sounds obscene, but I kind of like rent day. I do it the old fashioned way. Instead of paying on line, as I could easily do, instead of paying by snail mail and letting the mailman carry the check, instead of paying by the year to just get it out of the way, I write my monthly check and...

Things Are Changing Quickly

"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments [or what you write on paper, or blog on the Internet ], but what is woven into the lives of others." ~ Pericles Two weeks ago today, I took a picture of the beginning of the changing of the leaves to autumn beauty. Just a few minutes... Sign in to see full entry.

Free-basing Ramen Noodles

“Stop free-basing sugar.” ~ Dr. Oz Dr. Oz probably wouldn't think well of free-basing Ramen Noodles either, but in a health competition between them, Frito's, French fries, and fried pork rinds, Ramen Noodles just might win out. At least they are not fried in grease. In this case, neither are they... Sign in to see full entry.

Time Out

I am alone at the moment, and I just love it. I can hear no voices, nada....no TV, the PC is silent except for the tapping of my fingers on the keyboard...golden silence. I do get tired of voices, esp. women's voices, even my own. So, I have two hours before the voices begin again. Today, Sis and... Sign in to see full entry.

"...The Petty Pace..."

I couldn't help but look down at the murky water as we crossed the Heart of America Bridge over the Mighty MO, and think about the jumper who has not been found. We were going in a very big circle, two of us to the airport to pick up Baltimore Sis arriving via Southwest Airlines, then south across... Sign in to see full entry.

Silent & Deep

Yesterday...and through the night, the winds were gusting something fiercely, whistling around the corners of the buildings, rattling anything the least bit loose, pulling colorful leaves from off the trees, twirling, dancing them around and sending them off in directions they probably did not want...

I'm Way Too Hackable

I've always known that my password(s) were actually not even worth having. I very much dislike messing with passwords. In fact, I must admit that for nearly every site where a password is needed, I have the same one--a community password. For the places where I tried something different, I cannot...

It's Coming!

With Halloween coming soon, I'll just bet there are plenty of good looking men out there who are planning to femulate for parties and such. Some companies even allow their employees to come to work on that day dressed in the attire of choice. The last place I worked before I retired, used to... Sign in to see full entry.
