I probably should start planning now

Nope, this isn’t another post about Halloween. For one thing, that planning is already done. For another, it’s all about doing now, not planning. What this post is all about is my next big adventure and what I want to (or should) do. Whatever I decide, I probably should start planning now. Age is more than a… Read more »

Getting beat up by a dead dolphin

Yes, even by the standards of this blog, that’s a strange headline. But, it’s not metaphorical or allegorical or any other “ical” type of thing. It’s totally on point. It’s a short tale to see how I’m getting beat up by a dead dolphin. The primary driver for this story is a dolphin. But the… Read more »

Battling artificial deadlines

Since I left Corporate America, I haven’t had any deadlines to meet. That is both a good and a bad thing. I no longer have the stress of a “drop dead” date. But, I also don’t have the motivating force behind “you better get this done!” So, I end up finding myself battling artificial deadlines…. Read more »

How I can create complex macro-driven workbooks at the same time as I publish a company newsletter filled with humor and imaginary “articles”. How I can rationally… Read more »

Under promise or under deliver?

Right about this same time last year. Weird how that works out. Does that mean I’m repetitive or just harping on the subject? Oh, I see I’m musing out loud (in type) again before I’ve brought you into the conversation. Whups! I’ve gone over with you how the weather has given me more opportunity and… Read more »

Who knew the stock market had a heart?

I’ve spent the past week and a half watching myself become unretired and retired again so many times my head is spinning. The stock market has gone into whack-a-mole mode and there doesn’t seem to be any rationality left in the markets. At the risk of boring all of you, a quick primer on the… Read more »

GNABRT follow-up 1 – From blog to book

Welcome to the “epilogue” section of the Great North American Baseball Road Trip blog.  I’ll be posting every now and then about things related in one way or another to my recently completed journey. Today, it’s about how to turn all those miles, stories and posts into a coherent narrative, or, in English, how the… Read more »
