Well, after a several month hiatus, I have the site working again.  What happened?  You don’t want to know.

Merry Christmas

It doesn’t look like Christmas this year.  People are skating Rockefeller in shorts and tees.  Even poor Josie might be hankering for a bit of that 2013-14 Christmas.  Although, it would be for only a bit of that year of blizzards.  Remember the term Polar Vortex?

Not much of a post but I thought I’d better say something to avoid the “Still alive?” queries. Read more…

Well, a different one from our pasteboard passion.   I am talking old computer games.  Who didn’t want to be Leisure Suit Larry.  OK, bad one to use.  But there were a bunch of them that we played at old TV resolution levels.

I did it on my computer with a CGA card — spiffy.  Others plugged in their Nintendo to their TV.   I think a Nintendo cartridge went for maybe $19.95 at the start and there were places you could sell or trade them for half the price.   As time progressed, prices and ability increased.  Today, you can plunk down $59.95.

But this Nintendo cartridge takes inflation to an all new level.

Use that too much and you really don’t sound very with it.  These days it is a major part of my vocabulary.  The telephone has become an enemy.  Conversations can become a minefield.  This all really kicked in a year ago August with an incident that sent me to the emergency room. Read more…

Rhubarb is a strange thing.  It isn’t a fruit but I love a rhubarb custard pie as much as the fruit variety.  It reminds me of the local farmers with the query about whether the rain will hurt the rhubarb — those old goat in the small farming community I grew up in would stand in their overall and complain about the weather that was never up to their needs.  I guess I’ve become one of those old farts with more complaints than compliments.

By Popular Request

Well, it was just one comment/request by Sparky; but around here in these non-poker days, that seems huge.  I’m supposed to post — like that means much.   I do like to write.  I have done it in a forum of late that gives me my Jones.  Since poker, I’ve had a hard time thinking anything I could say had much originality.  That created a path more toward plagiarism than content.  Threw in a bit more snarky to try to give some entertainment value.

I totally missed recognizing the sadness of last Saturday — the 11th.  A national sadness?  An international sadness?  No, my friend.  This sadness is truly GALACTIC!!! Read more…

If you watched the wrap up of the Boston sadness, you saw a lot of folks that you might not be familiar with unless you are from Boston.  But there was one we all know but may not love a lot more than the bombers. Read more…
