Part 1, Fly the Unfriendly Skies with US Scare

Well, it looked like it was gong to be a nice vacation…I’d leave Norfolk at 9:25, land in Charlotte at 10:20, leave Charlotte at 12:45, land in Columbus at 1:50. Nice leisurely flight. Then the problems started. We were delayed to 10:25. 11. 11:15. 11:25. 11:30. We finally took off at 11:45. Landed in Charlotte […]

Road Weary

I have returned from the midwest. Had a great time with relatives (photos forthcoming), but driving for 16+ hours, even over two days, is a bit much. I’m not as young as once I was. So, blogging will have to wait. There’s many adventures to share, from the 2 1/2 hour layover that turned into […]

On the road again….

Since I now know that PR is on the road to recovery, it makes my leaving that much easier. I’m off to the nation’s breadbasket to visit my Grandma. Since internet connections are catch as catch can, there prolly won’t be blogging until Sunday. Remember, however, that Pisco over at Episcosours (see the blogroll over […]

The blogroll has been pared down — some of the blogs had ceased to be, and some had ceased giving reciprocal links, so, if there’s one missing that you enjoyed (or, if you’d like to turn me on to a good blog) leave me a comment.

Miracles Happen

PR made it through surgery. They found what they think is the fragment, as well as corrected some cartilage damage that they hadn’t seen on the x-ray. He’s currently in recovery. Thanks for your thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes.

Careful with your words.

A guy goes into a supermarket and while walking down one aisle, this beautiful blonde at the end of the aisle waves at him and says, “Hello”. He’s rather taken back, because he can’t place where he knows her. So he says “Do you know me?” To which she replies, “I think you’re the father […]

Well, I’m back

and getting ready to dash off again. This summer has been full of trips, which has been quite nice. We had a great time in Gettysburg, and made it back too late for me to post last night. I leave bright and early Wednesday to see my Grandma. PR’s surgery is tomorrow. Prayers please, that […]

be good to each other.

And enjoy. I’ll chat with you all on Sunday evening.

Idiots among us.

Karyzma has been full of some great ones today: IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: “too many deer were being hit by cars” and he didn’t […]

I’ve received this from several people…enjoy! Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations […]

There once was a religious young woman who went to confession. Upon entering the confessional she said, “Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.” The priest said, “Confess your sins and be forgiven.” The young woman said, “Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.” The priest thought long and hard […]

Word Play

Thanks to Karyzma for forwarding this on! The Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are the 2005 winners 1. Cashtration (n): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject […]

Various and Assorted Ramblings

Not often that I can’t think of much to talk about — today hasn’t been too bad, and I’m sure there were things that happened that I wanted to blog about, but durn if I can think of them, so, I’m just going to ramble, as I normally do. Why do people lie? I mean, […]

…to Darren Hayes for not being afraid or ashamed to tell the world about love. It’s a shame that we still live in a world where the colour of one’s skin, one’s political beliefs, religion, or even who one chooses to love can be professional suicide. So what if Darren chose to marry his boyfriend? […]

I want, I want, I WANT!

Look what’s FINALLY coming to DVD on September 26!

So, we shouldn’t be conserving.

I got hot under the collar when I read about this program. Actually, there was a lengthy article in the Daily Press (taken from the Chicago Tribune, also printed in the Kansas City Star), where Oregon is testing a program to abolish their gas tax and instead, charge drivers either 1.2 cents per mile driven […]

The Tuesday Ten™ 07-18-06

In honour of my wireless router that decided to die in the middle of the night (thanks Belkin!): 1. If you run a network in your home, is it wired or wireless? 2. Mac or PC? 3. What brand(s) of computing equipment do you REFUSE to use? Why? 4. Where do you purchase most of […]

Massive Heat.

Hot. Melting. Must remain in the safe coolness of the house. Man, it’s humid out there!

Tink asks, I answer 7-15-06

“Where in Australia would you go?  Would you just go to Sydney or try some of the more obscure places?” Well, I’d want to hit Sydney, and on the other side, Perth. I’ve an affinity for Perth since the early 80s, when I found out one of my fave bands of the time, “Eurogliders” were […]

BB malqoted, Rectify.

I had to laugh when I read the news the other day about our President reporting that the deficit wasn’t as bad as previously reported. Then I gave an involuntary shudder as I remembered George Orwell’s “1984”, and how facts and figures were rewirtted and re-reported so that Big Brother would always appear to be […]

This rant’s been building in my head for a while. When did we, as a people, become so obsessed with life prolongation that we decided to damn the individual?

Life is a Meme.

Or sumpin’ like that. Taken from Lachlan’s.

I *DESPISE* Eckerd Drug

Why? OK, as those who follow my blog and website know, I enjoy photography. A LOT. So, since I now work basically in the digital format, it makes things a lot cheaper, but a lot less “hands on.” There’s just something satisfying about having 4x6s in your hand fresh from the photo lab. Because I […]
