Who would have guessed that having an amazing coffee maker would result in drinking more coffee? We upped the monthly order for 2 12-oz (formerly known as a “pound”) packages to a 5-pound (still actually pounds) package. Update: This dog aint that big! I think The Laird may have overcompensated. We now have three fiveContinue reading “Running with the Big Dogs”

A Dock with a View
We visited my sister (and family). The “why” will get another post, but I wanted to share another view that I do not have next to the office window post. The view from her dock: That’s only half the panorama. This is the view I grew up with. I miss the lake. This was takenContinue reading “A Dock with a View”
This costume came up in conversation and I realized that I had only one copy of the picture and it was on my work computer. Now it’s eternal on the Intertubes! And you can’t even see the cool hoof shoes (aka pony boots) that I’m wearing. Those things are a nightmare to walk in –Continue reading “Halloween!”
Boots, Broncs, Breads
I forgot to post this. It was a busy weekend. On Friday, I dug out the boot polishing stuff and did my – in dire need of – boots. I was trying to convince my dance instructor to improve his poor shoes before a competition. It worked. On Saturday, The Laird and I went toContinue reading “Boots, Broncs, Breads”
Who uses such expressions? Because they are screaming about Kyle Rittenhouse, I heard about MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán). I was curious, so I looked them up. I don’t recommend it. Their website is a word salad nearly devoid of meaning. As an example, using a sentence that actually parses:MEChA chapters are often theContinue reading “Social Praxis?!?”
Happy Pumpkin Carving!
Last night was the 26th Annual Pumpkin Carving party – in abbreviated form. We’re not really ready for a party, so it was a quiet night with just The Laird and I. I had a beer and we carved pumpkins. That counts! I’m not restarting the numbering. The inaugural was only three people. Kent, ifContinue reading “Happy Pumpkin Carving!”
The Denver house is done. It was a brilliant example of “laws are for the little guys”. I was lied to – in contracts – throughout the entire process and no one will pay for it. But, I walked away with a reasonable amount of money and it’s finally over. Thy will be done. I’mContinue reading “Mission Accomplished”
Algorithm of the Day
YouTube did a great job on this one: Let’s see if I managed to get WordPress to embed that… Yes! The “custom HTML” WordPress widget with the YouTube “Share, embed” code. It came from me searching for this one: because Behind the Black linked to this one: Too much of a good thing?
This Is Conservative?
There is a new brouhaha between Kristi Noem and Matt Walsh. I stumbled upon that via The Laird mentioning Patriot Post having a video about it. Republican legislature in South Dakota have crafted a bill, the COVID-19 Vaccine Freedom of Conscious Act, to stop employers from forcing their workers to get the COVID vaccine. KristiContinue reading “This Is Conservative?”
We got an i7 from Amazon. It has a camera. After watching a terrifying CBC report on wireless cameras, I’m a bit leery of such things. The Roomba itself doesn’t seem to have a password. It asked for the wireless (MainLink623, if you’ve been following that thread) password, but we did not set a passwordContinue reading “Teh Roomba”
