I have nothing coherent to add. Well, except maybe this. In Closing: gluten; poverty and family planning; and lying rat bastards extend NSA’s mandate to Gather Everything.

Where is my motivation?

Posted by on February 19, 2015 at 5:45 pm

Since getting home from Texas last week, I’ve had a hard time getting motivated to write anything. I promise to get back on track soon. In the meantime, please enjoy some NSA and spying on Americans links, on the Post Office, our Vice President getting cheeky, crows solving problems, stuff I have been saying for […]

Lost At Sea

Let’s start with the wreckage of Blackbeard’s ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge. Seems there were a number of interesting medical devices on board. In the century after that ship sank, submarine warfare was born. Alas, the first “successful” sub, the Hunley, sank. Now researchers are finally able to learn more about what happened to the Hunley. And […]

Maybe I Need One More Habit

California wants to use more facial recognition to solve crimes. Never mind that this is a not-ready-for-prime-time technology, and even license plate readers make mistakes (and come on, there’s only 36 choices per character!). Heck, today I learned first hand that the system used by the Nevada DMV can be stymied by glasses vs. no […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Habitual

Posted by on January 9, 2015 at 9:02 pm

Today’s question: Do you think you have more good habits or bad habits? I thought about going a little zen on this question and simply saying “yes.” I have good habits, I have bad habits, I don’t know that I ever bothered comparing the two. I suppose I’d like to think I have more good […]

Music Monday: Just Drive!

I bet you were wondering how I was going to work habits in, weren’t you? So, let’s talk about driver safety. Did you know that there are a lot of people out there who still don’t wear seat belts?? If you’re one of them, I know a habit you should be working on. Driving while […]

Just a reminder that for ladies, there are times that it’s not a very nice place out there in the real world, and yet many of us persevere.

3 Premieres and a Re-Run

I’m not much of a TV or entertainment blogger, but thought I would share my thoughts anyway. Here goes. Madam Secretary: I wanted to like this one right until I started hearing the radio ads describing it as a “new hit series.” Um yeah, think we can just maybe wait until the first episode airs before […]

Even though the stats say people read this little site regularly, the fact is not many people comment. One of the few people who I’d call a “regular commenter” was Cynthia. It is with great sadness that I must report that Cynthia passed away this morning. She leaves behind a long-term boyfriend, assorted distant relatives, […]

Yet More Things I Learned This Semester

Posted by on May 10, 2014 at 6:41 pm

Yes, the semester is almost over and that means it’s time to share a few choice thoughts. In General: There are people who are willing to wait for a spot 100 feet closer to the building, even in nice weather. In the meantime, I’ve parked in the next lot over, locked my car, walked to […]
