These are the shanks I get?
Yes, I admit it. I missed June. My monthly cooking challenge just somehow slipped by me. And, while I had July planned early, I barely got it in under the wire, too. Life. You know. So, I worked really hard to make it happen this month and…these are the shanks I get? In case you… Read more »
Throwing some shade
Don’t let the headline fool you, this is a post about technology. And, I suppose, it’s also about getting what you pay for. In a good way.

Guess who is coming for dinner?
We have been told, frequently, by the current resident of the oval office, that this man is fine. He can be our friend. That we, in our past, are just as bad as him.

No, you are not seeing things. You do not need to adjust your screens. I am seeing the same thing you are, so cancel that visit to the optometrist. To paraphrase the bald kid from the Matrix: “There is no tree.” This prompts me to make the absolutely very last post on the Tree of… Read more »
