As we wind the month of May up into a nice, neat package and store it away in the archives, let’s look back on what’s happened this month: * I did a thorough cleaning of my room for the first time in years. Lots of stuff to charity, lots of stuff in the trash, lots […]

Sorry guys, but it looks like I’m going to be dropping the Ecosystem from my blog. Why? Because I’ve been trying for close to a month to get a response from Bear regarding the fact that I can’t log in to my account — it says it sent the userid/pw to silverblue at cox dot […]
Sounds like my ex: Bush has been reported dead!
It’s dry, for the umpteenth day in a row. The good thing is that I will not have to mow Hell’s Half Acre as often. (Hey, they said look for the lining in every cloud, right???) Allergies, however, have kicked into high gear. Tink’s beginning to stress, as she leaves on Saturday morning for points […]
The day from Planet Earth. A good day, consisting of a mass of planetary material rotating around a burning orb of gas. Work was good (even if I let out a secret that some of the posts are actually programmed to pop up later — which is how “blogging” during the workday is sometimes accomplished), […]
I’ve got more photos up in the gallery. The video from earlier today with the guy was Josh Groban’s “To Where You Are”. The other video was Sissel’s “Summer Snow” (feat. Zamfir). How’s your Wednesday turning out?
I’m feeling a bit better this morning; last evening I was running a fever and had body aches. I’m still a bit achy, but nothing like I was when I left Mom & Dad’s last night. Some good news: I was able to visit with my Aunt and Cousin yesterday, and my Aunt gave me […]

Three songs — the gist of which she’ll understand. [audio:bnh.mp3] [audio:fnobv.mp3] [audio:ndfye.mp3]
Please keep Angel with a Camera in your prayers. She’s going through some intense crap right now and needs lifted up. Let’s band together — I can’t give details, but it’s painful, just short of death of a loved one.
Did I really need to do the math to know I’m still being screwed, even with the downturn in the housing market? Housing tax in Hampton has been lowered from $1.14 per $100 in assessed value to $1.08 per $100. Which means, of course, that my taxes will be going up $90 next year. The […]
Last year, we talked about Vacations on the Tuesday Ten™ after Memorial Day. This year, we continue the theme, with new inquiries! 1. How many vacations do you take a year? 2. Where’s your dream vacation spot? 3. What’s your preferred mode of transportation? 4. What constitutes a vacation? 5. Name one place you’ve vacationed […]
If you want to have your comment posted, use some common sense. 1. Do not spoof your email address. 2. Don’t use a Yahoo email address when you come in over an AOL IP address. The other person who used to do that on the blog has long since been banned. finally, 3. Don’t use […]
The photo on the left is from August 23, 2006, before I was at my heaviest (believe it or not), the one on the right from this past Sunday: While I have a problem seeing the minute changes from week to week, this is rather dramatic to me. I hit my heaviest in March 2007: […]
Here I am on May 27: and the new hat I bought myself yesterday (well, the embroidery part of it):
Morning everyone. I had planned on blogging lots more yesterday, but alas….the best laid plans of mice and men. After posting yesterday’s post, I went out and assembled the grill (there were two screws that were a real pain in the butt, but otherwise it went okay. Surprise, surprise, the shed was delivered yesterday as […]
Well. After a nap of about an hour yesterday (I told you, for whatever reason I am unable to nap for extended periods of time), Tink, PR and I headed to Lowe’s to look at grills and storage sheds. First off, let me say that I SUCK at math. I have a problem with square […]
Well… (thanks to Moonglow for the photo) Went to church. PR went as a pew warmer (he did get up and direct the choir special), and after which, Player Piano, PR and I went to Long John Silver’s. As good as the food was, it wasn’t as good as I remembered it being. The grease […]
Sunday, my free day, and the house is beginning to wake up. Tink’s thumbing through the paper, PR’s still snoring away, and I’m just about through my first cup of coffee of the day. Still not sure if I’m going to make it to church this morning, though I most likely will. Yawn. Who put […]
WASTELAND OF THE FREE (Iris DeMent) Living in the wasteland of the free… We got preachers dealing in politics and diamond Mines And their speech is growing increasingly unkind They say they are Christ’s disciples But they don’t look like Jesus to me And it feels like I am living In the wasteland of the […]
