After Much Consternation

I'm writing a this as a testimonial to a word that has fallen in usage and should be restored to it's full glory and usage. There are so many good words that we don't use anymore.  I won't go into the dumbing down of the education system or society.  Heck, … [Read more...]

New Year’s Day 2012

Spent the day in short's sandals and a T shirt.  What a beautiful day in every way.  I'm writing this on the back patio as the sun is getting ready to set.  The grass is green (two shades of green actually) and the air is still and quiet. The temp is in the … [Read more...]

The Button in the Urinal

The lease was up on the two cups of coffee I had while reading the morning paper. I headed into the restroom at the Oro Valley McDonalds.  They are using the water less urinals which is a good thing in the desert. I looked down and noticed a button … [Read more...]

Are They Really Dumb Bunnies ?

I spent this past weekend visiting my daughter Suzi at UC Irvine. She lives in that building at the top of the photo. Visitor parking is down where I'm taking the shot. When we go places we walk down the grassy slope to the car.  Early Sunday morning we … [Read more...]

Skip Day

Code Name Cupcake

There was a big brew ha ha over the code name "Geronimo" for Asama bin Laden. It has to be touch to pick a code name that doesn't offend someone. So I'm thinking we should offend the person with the code name. Personally, I think Geronimo was a perfect … [Read more...]

The Ides of March 2011

Oh, my, Et tu Brute.  I feel like I'm being betrayed by time. Daylights savings time that is. It came to most of the country on Sunday, but not to Arizona.  We have so much time on our hands that we don't want to make our days any longer than they already … [Read more...]
