Skills to Pay the Bills

Published on November 8, 2014 By bmagnus

  It’s important to keep those computer skills up to date! So be sure to check out these super-keen books on cutting edge computer stuff. Just in case you think I’m dragging up old pictures, please note “QuickBooks 2011 for Dummies” right below the far less timely book on Excel 2007. For the record, I […]

Harvest Time is Upon Us!

Published on September 7, 2014 By bmagnus

And apparently, nothing says “autumn” to my local store than pumpkins and lots of boxed wine! Or perhaps you’d prefer the hard stuff? Drink that much Jack, and you’ll need the tombstone! As the nice lady sang, “Cheers to the freakin weekend! I’ll drink to that.” In Closing: personality test; Carlin; what could possibly go […]

Comics and Fun Stuff

Let’s start with the CDC: “If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack.” A History Lesson or two. Is Sovereignty right for you? Enjoy Juanita’s potpourri. Oh yeah, and you gotta get your Snowden, Snowden, Snowden, yet more Snowden, […]

A Couple Follow-Ups

Little Dogs in Big Trouble: Remember this post? The picture was taken in front of the Prince and Princess Puppy Boutique in Las Vegas. Well, there’s been some trouble in the Doggie Kingdom. The owner of the store and her companion are accused of trying to burn the place down with 27 dogs inside. Yeah, […]

Crosswalk to Nowhere

Yes, apparently you have to push the button to legally walk down the sidewalk here. It’s been driving me nuts all semester. In Closing: oh come now, we can all use more NSA and privacy links, particularly when it’s starting to garner international outrage; speaking of international laws, looks like America doesn’t care about them too […]

Quacking Up

Ok. Can somebody please explain to me why exactly I might want a “Duck Dynasty Free Android App”?  

Ides of March

Published on March 15, 2013 By bmagnus

Pi Day is over. Today is the anniversary of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC.  To the best of my knowledge, Caesars Palace is not planning any memorial events. A friend has suggested not celebrating with a salad. In Closing: three political cartoons (render unto Caesar, eh?); oops, turns out the samples from Lake Vostok […]

On the Jobs Numbers

Published on December 7, 2012 By bmagnus

So I have some open tabs that I’ve been saving for a discussion on employment, unemployment, and job creation. Luckily for me, job creation and unemployment numbers came out today. Unemployment does continue to go down, and it looks like we [barely] create enough jobs to keep up with demand. However, many of those new […]

I think the bacon thing has gone too far. Again.

Published on November 3, 2012 By bmagnus

I like bacon as much as the next omnivore. And I like bourbon. I just don’t think I want to consume them at the same time.

Oh sure, I totally know him.

I’m blaming Busted Knuckles for invoking his name in comments: In Closing: effing candyman; maybe a clue why is in the previous post’s comments?; follow up; more follow up (attackers knew irony?); Military wants to save you $3,000,000,000 but Congress won’t let them; sorry Wendy, when you serve burgers in paper wrappers on plastic trays, you […]
