Howdy, y’all. Today is the 28th day of July — at least here in Texas, USA, Earth — and thus it’s National Chili Dog Day AND National Milk Chocolate Day, and the only way it could get any better is if the Gazette’s small army of interns would rush out and bring me back a… Continue reading Random Thursday
I’m too lazy to type “Random Thursday — The Friday Edition”…or am I? It’s been a while since we’ve done a Wandering The Web post, so this will ultimately turn into one, but first — some local weather-related updates. Five days ago, as alert Gazette readers no doubt recall, I informed the world that Pecan… Continue reading R.T.T.F.E.

More like a shirking title, amirite?)
A week or so ago, while wandering through the Desert of Lost Creativity, I stumbled onto the idea of doing an AMA post. I solicited questions via Faceborg and this here blog-like thing, and promised to consider answering them. Some of y’all joined in, and in keeping with the ongoing theme of the Gazette, threw… Continue reading Ask Me Anything: I answer your burning questions
I posted this to my Facebook page yesterday, but I realize that not everybody comes here via that accursed popular medium. Y’all are probably getting tired of all the nature-related articles on the Gazette so I’m going to try something different: AMA. All the really cool people are doing this nowadays, but I don’t care —… Continue reading AMA (Ask Me Anything)
Don’t try this at home…or anywhere, actually. Happy Thursday! Today, as you well know, is National Grape Popsicle Day. There are many fine ways to celebrate the day, one of which is to use a grape popsicle to keep your drink cold, as long as it’s not chardonnay. Today, for your reading pleasure, we shall… Continue reading Random Thursday
Apologies to the Queen of Soul for the post title, but the question is a valid one today, albeit for different reasons than Aretha anticipated. And the answer seems to be…pretty much everyone. One of the few beneficiaries of the COVID lockdowns is the maker of the videoconferencing software, Zoom. I guess it’s been around… Continue reading Who’s Zoomin’ Who?
Art installation – San Antonio Museum of Art (heavily Photoshopped) I try to post a new image to Instagram every morning. I’m not 100% successful because I’m lazy, but I don’t miss too many days, because I enjoy the discipline of creating and sharing those pictures, when I’m not feeling lazy. I also like Instagram… Continue reading Here’s what I’m doing on Instagram…
Update (2022): I’m leaving this post up purely as a quirky episode in the life of this blog. The app in question no longer exists, nor does the company that created it, having discovered that there’s no business reason to continue to make a product that no one wants. Good thing I don’t operate this… Continue reading There’s an App for This
[Insert pithy yet winsome introductory text here. Please.] Every now and then, something happens that restores my faith in humanity and I think that perhaps there really is some hope for mankind. Then I read Facebook comments and come to my senses. Forget Ebola. What I want is a concentrated scientific and medical research effort… Continue reading Random Thursday: The Wednesday Edition
