Toothless

Technology is amazing. It seems as if there’s an endless game of “top this!” going on. There are so many advancements and changes it’s hard for anyone to keep up. During my meager shopping spree over the holidays (mostly clothes and some cheap blu-rays), I did pick up a couple of technology items. Nothing phantasmagorical… Read more »

Music drives me

Or, more accurately, music walks me, but that’s just not as sexy a title. In this case, though, music writes me, as I welcome you to a cornucopia of musically influenced random ramblings. Maestro, if you please… You cannot be Sirius! I’ve had XM Satellite Radio almost since its inception. Most of that was the… Read more »

Computer memory

I’m not one to wallow in nostalgia or sit around knocking on doors in my head for old memories. But, occasionally, I do succumb to the siren call of past delights. Sometimes it’s the re-reading of an old book. Other times, it might be pulling out the sketchbook to seek inspiration from long-ago drawings. There… Read more »

Bzzzz

Many times have I fallen in love with an electric razor only to have the breakup be one of pain and regret. Indeed, if I had as many divorces as I’ve had electric razors, I’d not even be able to afford a three-pack of disposables. So it is, like the woman you can never quite… Read more »

A mute point

I was certain nothing and no one in my household was going to be more glad that today marks the end of this horrific election. But I reckoned incorrectly, for I forgot about something. The mute button on my TV remote. Oh, my poor beleaguered mute button. For months upon months, I’ve abused that little… Read more »

Good grief, what a mess

Seven years. Seven years I’ve been manning this website and doing just fine as editor, writer, blogger, graphics designer, publisher, administrator and webmaster. Until Tuesday. After years of (mostly) trouble-free webmastering (look, ma, a new verb!) the website, I managed to destroy the whole site. Not just take it down, mind you, but vaporize it… Read more »

Occam’s razor

Occam’s razor is a not often enough used principle of logic that says, basically, the simplest answer is the best. Now that I am permanently beardless (until I grow my beard back again), the siren call of an electric razor is hard to resist. Both men and women can attest to the drawbacks of a… Read more »

How many times must I Awaken?

Ta da! The Stars Wars weekathon is over, timed perfectly to end on Sunday. Now, with the mythos firmly in mind, I’m now primed to watch “The Force Awakens”. And watch. And watch. And… It’s not as if I haven’t gone to see movies multiple times before, but since I’ve grown up (I hear a… Read more »

Micromanaging

Boy this is so tough. I’ve tried to find replacements and I keep failing. Way back when microwaves were the size of small houses and you had to get little wind-up things to get your dishes to spin around (okay, maybe those are still needed), there were a couple of “high-end” microwave dinners offered at… Read more »

Loving, touching, reading

(Apologies to Journey) When we were last together, I talked about jumping into my New Year’s resolutions early. In the short span of time from then to now, I’ve done just that. The house is fixed, the car is beautiful and by the end of the week the patio should be upgraded. And everyday I’ve… Read more »
