I’ll Finish That Joke Tomorrow

March 14, 2018

We interrupt the joke I was setting up for yesterday with the news that Stephen Hawking has died, and to make the following correction to one of the announcement I read regarding this:

Stephen Hawking did a lot of amazing things, but he never ever worked “with” black holes.  Maybe he is now, but he never did it when he was alive!  I know I’m being pedantic here, but it just seems like the sort of distinction that needs to be made when talking about even the concept of working with a black hole.


There Are Worse Things

March 5, 2018

For the record, L’s Mother and I did remember that Friday was our anniversary . . . one second after someone wished us a happy anniversary.

At this point I figure this is just our thing.

Let’s Try This Again Tomorrow

February 19, 2018

I really thought that by having an entire weekend to cool down that I’d be ready to elaborate on what I started talking about on Friday . . . but I was wrong.

Okay . . . Back

February 15, 2018

I am now once again in the land of electronic impulses, but it took me longer than anticipated to reach here, so I’ll talk to you tomorrow.

That’ll Happen When Your WiFi Network Is Apparently Based On Smoke Signal Technology

February 13, 2018

Apologies if I’m sporadic for a few days, my current location’s signal strength is easily disrupted by the wind.

I’m Hoping To Feel Better For Real Soon Though

December 27, 2017

If the brevity of my recent entries haven’t already clued you in, I’ve been . . . otherwise occupied lately.  Some of that, naturally, has been due to the holidays, but mostly it’s been due to a cold that has proven, for lack of a better term, “scrappy.”  By my count I’m on my third round of “I thought I’d beaten this thing already!”

Brain Temporarily Closed For Renovations

December 15, 2017

The cold/flu that I’ve been feeling nipping my heels all week has decided that today was the day to strike, so if you’ll excuse me (or even if you won’t) . . . I’m going back to bed.

So It’s Best For All Concerned If I Rest Now

November 30, 2017

I realize that lately my entries have been particularly brief, but that trend is going to continue for at least one more day.  As I type this I have been awake for some twenty-two odd hours or so, and while this is far from a record, it’s a condition that runs the risk of being fatal . . . to others.

Once Again Demonstrating “The Initiative”

November 20, 2017

Yesterday some chum bucket died of natural causes in the care of the California Department of Corrections.

(You can, of course, find more details if you care to look it up, but I still feel this is all that needs to be said.)

Hurricane Irma FAQ’s I’ve Fielded So Far

September 6, 2017

Do you know there is a hurricane?


Are you scared?

A little bit, yes, but right now mostly I’m annoyed.  It’s a Florida thing.

Are you guys going to be okay?

That’s the plan.

Are you going to evacuate?

Not at this time, but that plan is subject to change in an instant.

But what about-?

Okay, stop.  I feel your concern and I appreciate it.  Thank you, and I mean that sincerely, you want us all safe and so do I, and to do that I need to stop fielding your concerns right now so I can focus on what needs to be done over the next couple of days.  I hope you can understand that.

I will keep everybody posted as best I can, and will certainly give a detailed status update on Friday before things get serious, but that’s a social “circle of need,” and right now there’s a category 5 “circle of need” heading my way that needs to be my priority right now.  Again, I hope I can count on your understanding right now, because that’s my immediate need from you at the moment, that and wishes for good luck.

So wish us luck, and I’ll talk to you later.
