Goodbye, Karla.

Published November 7, 2016 - 0 Comments

Today I said goodbye to a friend and colleague. Karla was only 50 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. You know how some people just fill a room with their smile and positive attitude? That was Karla. She didn’t complain. She laughed. She didn’t whine. She loved.

Says Who?

OK, this is old news but I just can’t stop watching it.  I’m sure that there are some readers of this blog who are Donald Trump supporters, and I genuinely shake my head at you, but we live in a democracy and I think it’s important that you exercise you right to vote, even if it is for an unrepentant megalomaniac.  (Yes, I did have to look up both those words to make sure I had the spelling correct, and they were used properly)  So to those supporters I say: “Please leave a comment in the section below 😊”

Finding My Voice Again

Finding my voice.

I’ve realized that we’ve passed the midway point of the year, and not much has changed around here.  In many ways I’ve been treading water, which is an ironic image because I can’t swim.  So what does that tell you?  Exactly.  And as I write this, I also remember that the new blog theme is called Voice.  I guess it was meant to be.

There’s Someone For Everyone

Published August 8, 2016 - 0 Comments

It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything in the Life category.  Hell, it’s been a little while since I’ve written anything at all here.  But the Life category tends to be moments where I turn the blog a wallowing sinkhole of self-pity.  I think I’ll trademark that.

This time will be no different.

When is a Leap Year NOT a Leap Year?

Published February 29, 2016 - 0 Comments

Everyone knows that a Leap Year occurs every 4 years when an extra day is added in February to correct the natural “drifting apart” of the calendar and the Earth’s seasons. Without it we would eventually have winter in July – not a pleasant thought. But did you know that NOT every calendar year divisible by 4 is a Leap Year?

The State of TV

Published February 23, 2016 - 0 Comments

So you’d think that someone who cut the cord at home probably wouldn’t be watching too much television.  Well you’d be wrong.  It’s not nearly as convenient as it was, but I don’t really feel like I’m going without.  Everything gets downloaded elsewhere and then transferred to the servers at home.  My daughter still gets her Doctor Who.  My son still gets his Clone Wars.  And me?   What am I watching nowadays?

St Valentine was a Douche

St Valentine Douche

It’s been a few years since I’ve spent a Valantine’s Day alone. I can’t say that I’m a huge fan of that but it’s not the worst feeling in the world. I’ll reserve that for the day no one comes to my funeral. Yup… THAT would probably suck more than being alone on February 14.

Unless the funeral was on Valentine’s Day. Then that would just be Karma giving me a swift kick in the nuts.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all the Lovers out there!

No Home Internet – Week One

Published February 5, 2016 - 2 Comments

Well it’s been an entire week without internet at the home, and so far things have gone pretty much as expected. My data plan on my iPhone is maxed out, my kids are bored to tears, and I’ve started talking to the dogs like they are real people. It’s a little loony.
