Not all who wander should be looked for

Sorry, I’ve had my fill of seeing bumper stickers that say “Not All Who Wander Are Lost.” So, I think I should come up with my own (see the title). Or, perhaps, “It’s after 7 pm. Have your rates gone down?” (In homage of the old telephone pricing schemes.) Anyway, Monday was different — I’m […]

You think liberals are bad?

From CNN.com: On Sunday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Bush will not sign any war spending bill that penalizes Iraq’s government for failing to make progress. Lacking the votes to override a veto, the Democratic-led Congress is considering a revised plan to pay for the war while requiring Iraq to meet benchmarks for progress. […]

Sign me up to telecommute!

Industry analysts believe we will see $4-per-gallon gas prices this summer. Cost of living isn’t EVEN coming close to keeping up.

Health warning.

The question is: Do you use bacon grease? We were raised on bacon grease (lard) as kids and even into adulthood. I will never use it again. I hope you will throw yours away whenever you fry bacon from now on. It seems as though nothing is safe to eat anymore. I just threw out […]

Your laugh of the day.

As promised

The weekly photo of me. You may not be interested, but I’m doing it so I have a visual history of my journey.

With my morning cawfee…™

G’morning everyone. Monday certainly came quickly, didn’t it? With it, we start the cycle all over again. I’d like to know who thought that five on, two off was a fair trade. I’d also like to know what happened to the premise that by the year 2000, we’d all be working less and having more […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Well… what a day it has been. I’d certainly intended on blogging sometime this afternoon, but you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. Went to church (the numbers in the congregation were a bit off today) and then out to lunch with Bone Collector. Had an awesome Sirloin […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Morning. If I have one complaint about the effects of getting healthier, it’s that I find it difficult to sleep in or nap any more. Yes, I woke up in the middle of the night and it took me about half an hour to get back to sleep, but then I woke up at 6:15 […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

I really need to quit reading “Through The Eyes of Silver Blue” — I picked it up this evening and found another typo that will have to go on the errata page. In the BBS section, I mention that I was awarded BBS of the month by Mike Woltz, programmer of the Spitfire BBS program. […]

Do you cry your eyes asleep? Is it peace you seek at night?

Title from a song by BT, “Force of Gravity” which is hot on my MP3 playlist. Got a lot done today, which is a good thing. Morning workout, which next week I’ve got to remember to ratchet up, load of laundry, trip to Trader Joe’s (thank God for organics), Farm Fresh (salad bar bell peppers […]

With my morning cawfee…™

Calling out… Mister Barky Von Schnauzer! Mister Barky Von Schnauzer!!!! The closer we get to reunion time, the more people have emailed me. I’ve heard from (real names here, folks) John Lineberry, David Bennett, and Frederick Voss. I’ve heard from a few others over the years, but it’s been 20 years since I’ve heard from […]

First blog post from the dark side

Because of work, I am having to learn the ins and outs of a MacBook Pro. It’s an interesting system, and quite nice at that, but going from the PC world to the Mac is like being thrown in Italy without language lessons. Oh, sure, you can make yourself understood, and things look somewhat alike, […]

How True, How True!

You are a Self-Discoverer You’re not religious, but you’ve created your own kind of spirituality. Introspective and thoughtful, you tend to look inward for the divine. You are distrusting of all forms of organized religion. You especially dislike religious gurus and leaders, who you feel are charlatans. What’s Your Religious Philosophy?

With my morning cawfee…™

I’ll be brief, because there’s a lot of things going on. Today’s morning post consists of a simple, but deep thought seen on a bumper sticker: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” – Ghandi Think about it. Savor the moment. Be glad to be […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Evening, y’all! What a Thursday it has been. I’ve learned that the number of people who use excuses to attempt to explain this or that is staggering. I’ve learned there are a great deal of people who want to improve their lives but don’t know how to take the first step. I’ve learned that I […]

Musical Mode

Coffeemate and I were quaffing coffee and he brought another song, this one by Lene (former lead singer for Aqua), back to mind. [audio:dutymix.mp3]

With my morning cawfee…™

Well, yesterday was more fun than a barrel of monkeys. What the…? Who would find a barrel of monkeys to even be slightly amusing? That is, unless it were the plastic barrel, full of those plastic interlocking monkeys I had as a child. Somehow, I don’t think the expression started there, however. Anyway, work was […]

Gotta love it

Thanks Angel with a Camera, for bringing this song back to mind. [audio:pem.mp3]

Ten Tangibles

Lifted from Pisco’s. Taking up Pisco’s challenge I’m going to list 10 tangible things I wish I had. That is, no “world peace,” no “an end to hunger,” just 10 tangible things I’d appreciate. I think the implied theme here is, “Be a little selfish.” Also, no wishing for more wishes or only using half […]

A new fave song of mine.

Scissor Sisters with “Kiss You Off”

With my morning cawfee…™

You know it’s going to be a strange day when you can’t get to sleep until 1 am, and then you dream about having insomnia. Welcome to my world. I don’t know if it was being concerned about PR’s mom, or over exerting myself in my workout, or what, but I couldn’t sleep for more […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

The city streets are wet again with rain, but I’m walking just the same… Got a call that PR’s mom is in the emergency room after falling and sustaining a gash. He’s down there now, but I haven’t heard how she’s doing. As Tink said, “It’s getting near my birthday. What catastrophe is going to […]
