Today was too nice to spend the whole day inside working on work, so about one o’clock I went for a walk around town. Two enormous aircraft flew overhead rather low. Then I saw two Amish boys working on replacing the roof of a house.

Victory at Last!
It has been my dream since Diamond went WFH two and a half years ago — March 18, 2020 — to connect my Linux Mint install to the work VPN. I have tilted at this windmill for two and a half years, and for two and a half years its arms have thrown me andContinue reading “Victory at Last!”
Making a New Friend
A cat stuck her head in my coffee this morning. It was a little past ten o’clock. I fixed myself a mug of coffee, picked up my Rubik’s Cube, and went to sit outside and enjoy my coffee on a glorious Saturday morning. As I sat outside, I scrambled my Rubik’s Cube and proceeded toContinue reading “Making a New Friend”
Life Is Better with Pineapple
Let’s turn the block back to April… Hmm. Hawaiian spaghetti, made with cream cheese, ham, and pineapple. I thought that sounded fab! The reaction online, however, was less than enthusiastic. Well, I’ve made it. It’s fine. It could be better. But it’s fine. It is not “a hate crime.” If I make it again, I’dContinue reading “Life Is Better with Pineapple”
Condolences to Sir Paul McCartney
I’m sure she knew you loved her, Paul.
Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series
Neighbor, I don’t believe Joe Biden will be visiting our fair burgh so you can have hot monkey sex — no doubt Jill would object — but if that’s your thing, who am I to judge? Seriously, though, it wasn’t Joe Biden who stole top secret nuclear secrets and kept them in bankers boxes atContinue reading “Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series”
The Hero Sesame Street Needs
I believe I have found my Platonic ideal of a desktop wallpaper. Super Grover! How can one go wrong with Super Grover? The hero Sesame Street both needs and deserves! And whatever mishaps he gets into, whatever destruction head leaves in his wake, Commissioner Gordon will be right nearby to say, “Covered it.” I jest,Continue reading “The Hero Sesame Street Needs”
Some recent tweets that I enjoyed writing. Twitter falls into the memory hole so quickly, and maybe someday I’ll want to return to these. Okay, probably not. But for a minute or two, this is what I was thinking at the time.
Looking for Bidens
I visited Joe Biden’s grandparents and great-grandparents at Baltimore’s Loudon Park Cemetery yesterday. I learned last year they were in Loudon Park, and when I visited again I decided I’d look for them. Ironically, it was at the point where I’d decided to give up that I found them. Is that how it goes? BidenContinue reading “Looking for Bidens”
Fun with Desktop Wallpapers
The baseball season is coming to an end. The 2023 major and minor league schedules were released last week. I have two more games on my Senators ticket plan. Playoff tickets for the Barnstormers go on sale on Tuesday. April seems both like so long ago and just the week before last. Yesterday morning, theContinue reading “Fun with Desktop Wallpapers”
