Spring is in full-bloom in Pennsylvania, and I’ve not been able to breathe through my nose in weeks. I have been, as I joking said to my sister, pollinated. Some recent scenes. I attended the Lancaster Barnstormers Fan Fest on Saturday. The Barnstormers put on an exhibition game against the Black Sox, a travelling team.Continue reading “Scenes of Spring”

It wasn’t really warm enough today for shorts, but I wore them anyway. Shorts and a hoodie, and to the post office I walked after finishing a work project that took a few hours yet, as Spock of Vulcan once put it, “hours will seem like days.” It was a lovely day. I’m glad IContinue reading “Spring Walkabout”
I Love Victory!
I’m not this good at Othello. Really, I am not.
Changing up the Desktop
Discovering NASA’s Flickr photo archive this week was nice, as it game me an opportunity to update a desktop wallpaper. Notice the use of a. Manjaro My Manjaro installation probably could have used a refresh. Now it looks like this. It’s KDE with the Sweet Ambar Blue theme, the Candy icon set, and the PlankContinue reading “Changing up the Desktop”
Falling Victim to the Classic Blunder
Guess who rang in the new year by falling victim to one of the classic blunders, the eBay scam? Okay, okay, technically, it was two weeks ago. We got a small bonus check at work, and I spent it on a 2TB SSD drive on eBay. I’m not hurting for storage — I have fourContinue reading “Falling Victim to the Classic Blunder”
Looking for Methodists
I went to last night’s Baltimore Orioles game — they were paying tribute to Brooks Robinson with a personal appearance and a Norman Rockwell print giveaway — but before the game I made a visit to Baltimore’s Mt. Olivet Cemetery. I was looking for two things — early Methodist bishops and Joe Biden’s ancestors. We’llContinue reading “Looking for Methodists”
An Afternoon Walkabout
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.
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”
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”
