Random Thursday

Say, did you notice that I posted not once but twice yesterday? Pretty impressive, huh? Could this be a sign of things to come? Nah, probably not. Scientists think they’ve discovered the opening to a vast system of tunnels on the moon. Oh, great. Another way for illegal aliens to cross the border onto earth.… Continue reading Random Thursday

To those banks who took TARP money and are now experiencing the not-go-gentle hand of the federal government’s regulation of executive pay, allow me to remind you of the old saying about lying down with dogs. Canon’s new S90 camera got a rave review from the Wired Magazine‘s reviewer, who called it “the best compact… Continue reading Random Thursday

Wandering the Web

We went to the West Texas Food Bank’s fundraiser last night, partaking of food from a variety of restaurants (including red curry buffalo from Zucchi’s), watching (but not participating) in a sometimes listless auction of goods ranging from a rocking chair to a telescope, and listening to the current incarnation of The Lovin’ Spoonful. And… Continue reading Wandering the Web

Random…aw, heck…you know the drill…

Perhaps someday I’ll come up with a topic that (1) is interesting and (b) I know something about, but until that [unlikely] event occurs, here’s more random goodness from the interwebz: Don’t you just hate people who write “interwebz”? Xslimmer simultaneously intrigues and scares me to death. This Mac-only application purports to slit open the… Continue reading Random…aw, heck…you know the drill…

Random Thursday

I know…two consecutive days with posts that consist of actual words. Don’t get used to it.

(I ended up not being too… Continue reading Random Thursday

Random Thursday – The Wednesday Edition

Lotsa fascinating stuff around the web lately, to wit: For anyone who loves to read, bookshelves are a necessary evil, at least for those who haven’t yet drunk the Kindle Kool-Aid. For one thing, they take up space that might otherwise be productively employed to showcase big screen TVs. However, with a little imagination (and… Continue reading Random Thursday – The Wednesday Edition

Random Thursday

Some random thoughts (hey, it’s what we do) while contemplating what I’d do with an electric car that generates more torque than an M1 Abrams tank (well, other than pulling my house – slab and all – to the vacant lot across the street that has a better view of the pond). I got another… Continue reading Random Thursday

Random Thursday

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, so bear with me while I get my bearings. (This Content Freeā„¢ stuff is harder than it looks.) What a difference a month makes. A few weeks ago, West Texas was in the midst of a drought of epic proportions, with widespread burn bans and chronic… Continue reading Random Thursday

Wow, it’s been a while since we’ve done one of these. Bear with me while I get my bearings. Today is Trash Day. We’ve never had Trash Day before, so this is a big deal. Our new neighborhood doesn’t have dumpsters, so we have to wheel our city-provided trash cans into the alley to await… Continue reading Random Thursday
