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 »

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 »

Ears on the back of my head

It’s been a little more than two weeks since my return home from the Great North American Baseball Road Trip and I am still doing my daily walks without my phone and accompanying music. Starting off in the pre-dawn morning offers a number of benefits, many of which I’ve enumerated before.  Of the most valued… Read more »

Hook me up

It seems like this is the year for me to be replacing stuff. Wear and tear appear to be catching up to me.  Even though my appliances are only six years old, I’ve had to pick up a new bottom rack for the dishwasher, a new gasket for the ice maker and now my oven… Read more »

Road noise

Based purely on the point A to point B… Read more »

Manual transition

I began learning how to drive this past weekend. It sure feels that way, at least. After 10 years, I retired the trusty Avalon and now attempt to navigate around town in my new Legacy.  In order to have some hope of making sense of everything, I’ve been reading the monstrous tomes known as the owner’s manuals….

Taking my book for a walk

Except on rare occasions, I don’t blog on the weekend.  The same goes for writing.  I treat my writing like a job:  work at it during the week and take the weekend to relax, do chores and visit family and friends. Which is not to say I stop “writing”; I just don’t do it on… Read more »

The sounds of man

It’s been a while since the last blog.  Frankly, I just didn’t have much fodder for blogging and my long-standing motto is “better no blog than a bad blog”. Of course, some of you might take issue with the posts I considered “good” blogs, but dem’s da breaks when you follow a personal blog.  Now, read… Read more »
