no thinking

Political correctness - a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Roscoe the Gray

The transformation went virtually unnoticed until it was completed. I first noticed its beginning several years ago when I found a single gray pubic hair among a bountiful forest of brown. In the months and years following that discovery, I’d occasionally see another gray hair pop up in the brown forest. But overall, I didn’t […]

A Look Back

A couple of days ago popped up a memory of something I posted a year ago about a blog entry I’d made in 2007 – By the seat of my pants. When posting the memory, I explained the circumstances a little more. Here is what I posted:

Shared Facebook Memory
Yeah, those were dark days. Amazingly, I […]

Damaged goods?

I’ve gotten through over six decades of this incarnation relatively unscathed considering all the crap that life has thrown at me in that time. Some of that crap seemed like Hell while I endured it but lessons were learned, wounds were healed, and I moved on. In the last decade or so, I’ve gotten a […]


When I accepted the project back in February, I only expected it to last six or eight weeks. I expected to be finished by the end of March, then mid-April, and then the end of April. At the end of the thirteenth week I had done all I could do. At the end of the […]

40th Anniversary

Earlier this week my wife and I celebrated 40 years together as husband and wife. It wasn’t always smooth or perfect. We’ve faced many of the problems that married couples encounter but we’ve gotten through them. I’m not a marriage expert by any means but I do have a bit of practical experience. Here are […]

The Pit of Despair

Five days a week I spend eight to nine hours in the Pit of Despair, named for Count Rugen’s place of torture in the film The Princess Bride.  There I am metaphorically attached to a machine that sucks the life force out of me. The machine is management driven procedures and accountability. Management is Count […]

A few minutes late

Getting myself out the door on a Monday morning is tough but this morning took a bit more effort than usual.

I got around the usual time, had my coffee and a light breakfast while I checked email, Facebook, and Twitter. I checked my blood glucose (before consuming anything) and later, checked my blood pressure. By […]

Another Holiday Season

Another holiday season has come and gone, faded into history. It’s behind me as I move into a new year for whatever significance that may have.

It may have well been the first holiday season in which I did no shopping for gifts, save for the family gift card exchange. I made that as quick and […]

Ellen Page - Time to Thrive

It was a powerful speech, not just about gay issues but how the entertainment media feeds us all these “standards” about how we’re supposed to act, how we’re supposed to look, what we’re supposed to believe.

I don’t place much value on entertainment in general and the entertainment industry in particular. Their definitions don’t define my […]
