Non-functioning tats; baseball stats; a buck stands pat; and, uh, other things for which I’m out of rhymes.
Do you seem to always land on the same websites/social media? How about some variety?
In the past, this would be a Random Thursday post, but posting has been so random lately that Thursday no longer wanted to be associated with it. First, the obligatory back yard hummingbird photo. The little guys will soon be leaving for southern climes, so let’s enjoy them while we can. I’ve heard a lot… Continue reading A little of this, a bit of that…
Note: This is an old timey blog post, the kind you might have read in the early Oughts, where people were still sharing interesting finds on the web. It’s not done much anymore. I’m not sure why. I’ve been accumulating links over the past few weeks, primarily from Twitter but also from some random exploring… Continue reading Cruising the Interwebz
Scott Chaffin is one of my blogger heroes; The Fat Guy would be on my list of Blogs I’d Pick If Stranded On A Farm-to-Market Road Between Quitaque and Turkey (that’s in Texas, ya’ll). He writes with a deceptive country-boy self-deprecation that completely fails to obscure a wicked wit, sharp intellect, and laser-focused insight. He… Continue reading You Ninja, Yu

But when you’re so big that you can afford to give your competitors top billing, well, I… Continue reading File this under “C” for “Condescending”
Hey, I know! Let’s pretend like it’s 2006, back when bloggers still linked to each other and stuff. Kewl, huh? My pal Scott over at The Fat Guy is doing heroic battle with the Big C, and will definitely kick its butt. He’s also finding time between rounds of chemo to identify silly stuff that… Continue reading Staggering through the Blogosphere
This is for anyone who’s ever struggled to parallel park, as if we needed yet another reason to feel inadequate. This attempt set the world record for tightest parallel parking (is there anything for which a world record can’t be established?), said record measured by the clearance between vehicles. This attempt was 26cm. However, according… Continue reading Sliding Into Place
Twisted Sifter’s Friday Shirk Report is a guilty pleasure, a weekly compilation of 20 amusing (usually) images, 10 fascinating (usually) articles, and 5 interesting (usually) videos. The following caught my eye in this week’s report. I’ve never spent much time considering how new ships are launched, beyond the traditional smashing of the champagne bottle against… Continue reading Rocking the Boat
