Final Thought

Two for the price of one: Nite! Oh yea, I promised you two, didn’t I?

Grudges

…i’ve got broad shoulders, a good back and a very strong mindset carrying grudges comes second nature… I’ll admit it. I carry grudges for probably far too long. I was discussing with PoloRandy and Tink this evening the fact that my dad emailed me about all the changes we’ve made to the house (note to […]

Life back to normal

well, beef was for dinner…that helped cure some of the beal I was experiencing. Blackberry Merlot helped as well. Before all of that, however, I ripped out the two handrails of the house. The wood was beginning to rot and, well, I know I’m going to have to replace them with something, but that rotten […]

Affiliations

I am still affiliated with USURP and The Alliance, and once I learn more (I’m learning as fast as I can) about CSS, I’ll be adding the graphics to various places. WordPress may not be the perfect solution, but it’s fast, it’s customizable, it’s free, it’s open source, and it’s what I needed. Just something […]

One for the Book

The one I’m writing: True Confessions of a Technology Manager User says she just screwed up her computer by trying to unplug the old palm, she says help! Me: how did she screw up her computer? I’ve got someone in my office User’s coworker: it just turned off User’s coworker: she thinks something is unplugged […]

Fixed!

Damn that was fast. And easy. Comments now pop up in their own box. Enjoy (and please keep reading, Susie & Jennifer!) 🙂

So, I guess I lost one of my best readers

Susie takes blogs to task for opening new windows and such. Jennifer agrees with her. So crap, there go two of my readers. Actually, I think that may be something that is configurable under WP, or will be under 1.2 when it’s released this week (or next). Update: actually, it was as simple as removing […]

But..But…God told me to!

The things some people will do in the name of “GOD”. Woman Who Claimed God Sent Her To Car Dealership Gets Jail Time (Manassas, VA, May 18th, 2004, 11:30 a.m.) A Mount Vernon woman who kept showing up at a car dealership, claiming that God had ordered them to give her a free vehicle, is […]

Religious Humour

Thanks to Moonglow for passing these on. Q. What kind of man was Boaz before he married? A. Ruthless. Q. What do they call pastors in Germany? A. German Shepherds. Q. Who was the greatest financier in the Bible? A. Noah. He was floating his stock while everyone else was in liquidation. Q. What was […]

Let’s Just Pass The Buck

…got hold of Lowe’s to order the door. This time, I guess the manager had spoken with the employee, because I was informed they had faxed the vendor for a quote (since it’s going to have to be a custom job), and when they received the quote back, they’d prepare the paperwork for me to […]

Spam gets crass!

I’ve received some unbelievable email in my time, but two today have taken the cake for Email Headers: “Adult Action: MOM IS A SLUT!” read one, while the other read: “You Are Stupid Dumbass If U Pay Retail Pricee For Softwares belli” As if people would actaully be enticed to open these pieces of junk […]

Feelings…

….nothing more than “beal”ings. Ever been feeeled with beal? What? You don’t know what beal is? How long have you been reading my blog? Go here. Go on. I’ll wait. (Tapping Foot) Now, don’t forget it again. I’ve got a few things I want to blog about, but unfortunately, for me, I can’t put them […]

Customer Service Rant

You know, few things set me off like poor customer service. I was in Lowe’s last evening, to order a front door for my house. Measurements have been taken, contractor selected, etc. The only thing left is to sign the paperwork, right? Well, think again. I went in, and an employee first couldn’t find the […]

Loss of Another Legend

Tony Randall, best known as Felix Unger on TV’s “The Odd Couple” has passed away at 84. CNN’s obituary is here.

Humour from Dad

I’ll admit it’s a bad one, but it did make me smile. The staff at a local United Way office realized that it had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute and said, “Our research shows that out of […]

Morning Humour

Sitting behind a couple of nuns at a baseball game (whose habits partially blocked the view), three men decided to badger the nuns in an effort to get them to move. In a very loud voice, the first guy said, “I think I’m going to move to Utah, there are only 100 nuns living there.” […]

Common Sense

At least Colorado is on what I think is the right track….with the Governor signing the “Common Sense Consumption Act” which disallows lawsuits against restaurants for “making you fat.” Of coruse, there are going to be people SCREAMING that that cuts into their “personal rights”. I’m sorry, your personal right to get fat and sue […]

Good Morning

Or at least “morning”. Found I’d left my cell phone at Lowe’s last night (that’s a rant for another post), and zoomed out there this morning to get it. Made it to work within reasonable time, but it’s hectic around here. Who’s made the coffee, and do you care to share? Please?
