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.

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 »

Crossing over

When did it happen? Was it just the trip or has it been building for some time? In my quest to get “back” to health, I’ve been attempting to get myself up to my previous walking distance. Today, I pushed out to a little more than six miles. Tomorrow is eight. Except, I’m struggling. Ever… Read more »

GNABRT Day 49 – Green Day

Nah, not the popular group (although they put out some fine music), no today’s Great North American Baseball Road Trip post is the long-delayed 411 on the start-up testing I’ve been running concurrent with my trip. If you’re a latecomer to the GNABRT blog, you can check out the (very high level) back story on… Read more »
