Now that I’m back home, I can broadcast to the entire planet the fact that I left town (lol). I hopped across the Gulf of Mexico (oh look! We’re flying over…water…which actually looks kind of eerie from high above) and went to southeastern Florida, right on the Atlantic coast thereof. I was away from home … More Adventures in Florida (and everything after)
Actually, it’s not political at all. It’s weather, for chrissake. Weather and climate do not carry membership cards of a political party. 😉 But, somewhere along the line, it was made into a political issue. The right converted from an anti-slavery party (yes, it’s true) to a pro-business party, costs be damned as long as … More Politically independent thoughts on climate change
1 – Looks like I’m on an Electronic Mishap Bender again. My vaping atomizer battery has been flaking out, which is never a good thing. Not conducive to a functioning brain. The cable box seems to get a new “update” every month or so, which means I have to wait 20 minutes for it to … More Random-ass thoughts on a Friday [12-01-2017 edition]
Maybe you know the phenomenon of which I speak. Maybe you’ve seen the posts on blogs or Facebook. Maybe you’ve seen the tweets on Twitter. The ones in which you know something’s definitely up, but you’re not sure what it is, because the poster/tweeter/blogger doesn’t give much–if anything–by way of specifics. An example might be: … More In defense of vague-posting (vagueblogging, subtweeting, etc)
Indeed, I had to take extra care not to inadvertently type “Dairy” in the title. I think milk is commandeering my brain again. I probably (really) should resume my angelic adherence to a dairy-free existence. But dairy-free alternatives to dairy (yes, I meant to write it that way) translates to additional carbs, without the protein … More Diary of a Sunday [09-24-2017]
Spoiler Alert: I think everybody and practically everything is important somehow. I think that in the grand scheme, everything (and of course, everyone) happens for a reason. Nature saw fit to make sure that everything and everyone in this world came into existence, somehow or another. It thinks each object and one of us has … More How ‘important’ are we?

The band Red Hot Chili Peppers just has too many adjectives in its name for me to get behind. Like Limp Bizkit. His bizkit is limp. Bingo. One adjective. Boom. Done. ? ? ? ? ?
When Hollywood makes a movie out of a book, I’m frequently disappointed by the movie. Not always, but usually. The book is almost always better. In fact, I find books to be superior to movies in general. Why? Well, I’ll get right to the point, in my (stereo)typical list-making form. 😉 (Note: most of this … More Why books kick movies’ ass 😉
OK, we’re now here on the other side of the US 2017 Solar Eclipse that cut a swath of midday twilight across the country. I’m reminded of the line(s)/concept in the movie “Ladyhawke” when the drunk monk said that an otherwise lifelong curse could be broken during “a night without a day and a day … More #SolarEclipse2017 ~ an indirect experience off the beaten path of totality
The coming total solar eclipse in the US today is probably very well-known to most Americans. Yep, it’s today. A few cable TV channels started “pre-gaming” last night, complete with a little countdown timer thingy. They ran some “pre-eclipse specials”, discussing some of the coming live coverage, issuing a few cautions, and whatnot. As usual, … More Total eclipse of the brain…
