3 Things to Think About

Three things to think about: 1. COWS 2. THE CONSTITUTION 3. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS COWS Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington and they tracked […]

Photos as promised.

Remember. I’m the one with the camera. You know the photos are being taken. ‘Nuff said. (Yeah, I did take offense to the person who said “I didn’t give permission for you to print the photo of {location} in your book.” My comment then, as it is now is the same: you invited me on […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Ok, so it’s a new day, the sun is shining, I hear some birds chirping and… I have the beginnings of a sinus infection. At least I know now what was sapping all my energy. Today’s pet peeve is Social Butterflies. If you’re with a group of people, out doing something, I find it inexcusably […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Additional photos will be going online tomorrow — since I’m on the wireless downstairs, I think I’m excused for not uploading tonight. Met another “part time” member of the Racquetball Mafia tonight; we’ll call him SSID. Nice guy. Keyed Up, RadioMan, PR, and Realtor Guy also had dinner; I’m dragging though…it’s been a long day […]

One of my lucky numbers is 39

and so I’ve upped the page previews on the book to 39. The quality of the print is far superior to the low quality previews shown online (Picture Lady, who has seen the book, can vouch for it, as can BoneCollector). I’m feeling like all my energy has been zapped from me today…I really don’t […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Ok, as promised, here I am all shiny and clean and fresh from the shower, sitting down to share some morning thoughts before the day starts: I went over to Lady Who Counts’ house last night to work on her wireless network. While the features are located in different locations in Vista, it still was […]

Final Thought

I’ll save my thoughts for my morning cawfee…here’s your visual for the evening. Language potentially NSFW.

Stop the insanity!

No, I’m not channeling Susan Powter, I’m talking about the insanity that happens when people don’t completely read their email. I’m also discussing the insanity that ensues when you attempt to type something in Micro$hit Word and then export it to a web page. Even after allowing Dreamweaver to strip out most of the extraneous […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Now that things appear to be back on even footing, here’s the cover of the book I couldn’t upload last night. Some books just need to watch their titles, or how they’re listed. Such as this classic. (Link potentially NSFW.) Anyway, I didn’t bother to watch the Academy Awards last night simply because there really […]

It can’t bring her back…

but the murdered woman’s husband turned himself in. Considering that he is the prime suspect in her death (and the scum was having an affair with her best freind!), it’s good to know that at least he’s not out roaming the streets. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost someone to a senseless […]

Oh! Something else…

In case you were suffering from an inability to sleep, as I was this morning, you may have noticed that The Ramblings and its family of hosted blogs (Daniel over at A Question of Honour, Jonathan at Clowns at Tangelos, Tink at Flitting Here and There, as well as some that are hosted by my […]

The long and winding rant, part II

If I piss anyone off with this post, I apologize, but I need to get it out so that I don’t blow up and say additional things that may or may not need to be expressed. I’ve holed myself up in my room because for the first time in 3 months, PR has decided to […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Save 30%! How could I resist? Of course, I get coupons in my mail from a variety of places. Borders Books, however, normally sends me coupons for things I don’t use. Like children’s books. Though I will admit that I came close to buying THIS BOOK simply because I know Roxette Bunny™ would have had […]

Evening Humour

A guy walks into the local welfare office to pick up his check. He marched straight up to the counter and said, ” Hi. You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I’d really rather have a job.” The social worker behind the counter said, ” Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening […]

One of the curses of being me

Is that my body clock appears to permanently be set at 6 a.m. I don’t care what time I go to bed, without an alarm, I always am awake at 6. On weekends, I normally can roll back over and convince my body to sleep about another hour or so… but that’s it. Take this […]

With my morning cawfee…™

…in which our author finds that he’s been correct on most his thoughts so far… They’ve started coming back out of the woodwork; maybe it’s spring that’s causing them to reappear. Someone from my BBS days has indeed located my email address and written; a few more people that didn’t know they’d been written off […]

Deep Thought of the Day.

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

Five Short Stories.

Courtesy of Moonglow…yay! She’s saved us! Bulls Eye One of the best marksmen in the FBI was passing through a small town. Everywhere he saw evidences of the most amazing shooting. On trees, on walls, and on fences there were numerous bull’s-eyes with the bullet hole in dead center. The FBI man asked one of […]

Getting older, moving slower.

A bit of humour interspersed between comments from me. My head is a bit twingy this morning; I think it’s because of the change in weather. We’ll see if some Excedrin can knock it out. The new nun goes to her first confession. She tells the priest that she has a terrible secret and he […]

Afternoon Quickie

The only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their 8 year old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a Popsicle and tell him to report on all the neighborhood activities. He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation: “There’s a car […]

Decaf. In the morning? Never!

Yeah, this is supposed to be an edition of “With my morning cawfee…™ ” but with the way I’m feeling, I just don’t have a lot to say that is coherent. Another series of strange dreams. The the one where I’m in a sports stadium talking to someone: Them: “Well, I’m on a fruit only […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Hello everyone, good evening. Are we sure it’s not Friday yet? I really REALLY need to to be Friday. Ash Wednesday service went well with a combined total of about 84 in attendance from 5 local UCC churches. One church decided to do their own thing, while the 7th was mistakenly overlooked. All told, it […]

Music of the Morning

Echoes of loneliness, traces from love affairs, will never disappear, always come through. I thought I’d never know the time to see you go, two people turned into one, thinking as one. A hint in the night, a touch of a dream, has come to an end, we run from one heart to another again. […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season for all Christians. Last night was an excursion in the difficult. I headed down to Ghent at twilight and practiced some dusk shots, shots of neon signs, etc. in an effort to try to get more proficient with the camera. It’s not an easy thing, but a […]
