You have been assimilated

Remember that one?  The Borg protagonist from Star Trek. I found them the most annoying, scary of Kirk and friends enemies.  I thought of that when I visited Bam-bam’s old blog. (2011 Cry Out Loud) It was about Veteran’s Day.  It was sad to visit a missing friend yet the post seemed current for a different reason. Read more…

Get a Grip

OMG, the hand-ringing makes me think it is the final coming.   My thought?  The east is picking up a nasty storm that may close schools for a day or two.  People will be inconvenienced for a day or three.   It is winter folks.  Duh! Read more…

Happy! Happy! Happy New Year!

I was up for midnight.  About all that happened where some of the neighbors setting off shotguns.  I think they were after the night flying stork.  Thankfully, I am not a horse.  Today is, I think, the common Thoroughbred birthday.   Birthdays aren’t as much fun as they used to be either and this New Year’s Day fit that mold.

Sleep — perchance to dream

November 3rd, 2014 2 comments

As I aged, my sleeping habits have changed.  Sleep was uninterrupted and deep when I was young.  I could easy sleep in at times.  With age, that has changed.  I’m up earlier and don’t sleep as well.  I attributed it to the aches and pains that go with age.  Read more…

Parrot Lovers covered by Obamacare

I look at many thing and scratch my head.  It part of that raised in another era thing that separates the generations.  But, every once in a while, there is something that can give a laugh or tears across generation.  It is something that is so stupid that it’d only seem normal on The Big Bang Theory.

Mass Hysteria

March 24th, 2014 No comments

Hysteria comes and goes like we’re  somehow bipolar.  It is an adjunct of the information our brain processes.  It shows up at the polls and in late night bar discussion.  Euphoria is so much more fun — even if it is processing flawed data too.  Were is Spock when we need him so badly?  How do we prove we are the rational being the text books describe?

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Not sure exactly how it goes but around here it is four swans a swimming.  Living on a lake is a delight.  The puddlers and divers have been through — those are duck types for the urban folks.   Waterfowl pass through during the spring migration.  Summer has a big and beautiful Blue Heron stalking the shoreline.  But, today was special but all to brief.

I cooked

September 30th, 2012 4 comments

OK, the earth remains solid under your feet.  But, since cooking for myself, it wasn’t something thawed.  When Mom started failing, I cooked for her every day.  You need to do that to stay up on the game.   These days the stove gets turned on mostly to make a grilled cheese. Pathetic! Read more…

Damn PBS

November 3rd, 2011 9 comments

Last night I watched PBS.  First the Jobs’ retrospective and then one on the real reality in Physics for Dummies Nova.   Jobs, at one point, got 4 gold stars to Alexander Bells 3.   Looks like my stuff will never be refrigerator door worthy.  Then, the physicists really talked down to me.  It ended up with the idea that my reality was nothing more than a hologram emanating from some 2-D plane.  It left me in need of one of those PBS, faith-healing, ego-building, new-age, pledge-week broadcasts.
