Napping Videos

I think I’m too tired, because I think about sleeping and naps all the time. Look, I’m middle-aged and I totally own that.  And, for most of my life, I haven’t gotten enough quality sleep.  I own that, too.  It’s probably one reason I’m a little over-weight and have high blood pressure.  Sure, I do […]

Neon Flames

It’s like finger-painting with stars. You know how there are all those studies that say coloring is good for adults? That it helps us manage stress and all that? Well, I believe them. I have found that a little bit of coloring really has taken the edge off for me. I’m not quite as convinced […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Another new year and another chance to break promises to myself! I almost never bother with New Year’s Resolutions any more.  I mean, honestly, how many of us actually keep them?  Sure the gyms and churches are all full in January, but by Spring, we’re usually back to our old ways again.  Still it’s traditional, […]

Tracking The Fat Man

Time to watch for the jolly old elf! As I usually do at this time of year, I’m reminding you of where to find Santa and, more specifically, how to track his progress. During the Cold War, NORAD stood between us and what we were sure was complete destruction at the hands of the Soviets. […]

Polite Conversation

Let’s talk about polite conversation for moment, shall we? After surviving a difficult holiday, where, no doubt, you had at least some friction with someone about a closely held political belief of some kind that the other fat-head didn’t, I think manners and conversation might be an appropriate topic.  It’s bee a tense year and […]

It’s Not Magic

It’s an illusion! At least, that’s what Doug Henning would say. Hey, look, it’s been a rough month.  What with the elections, the holiday and NaNoWriMo, you’ve had a lot going on.  I mean, a lot. No matter who you wanted to win the Presidential Elections this year, the campaign has been brutal.  And, frankly, […]

Aerial View

One more aerial view thing next week and I’ll have an actual theme for the month. Once upon a time, I used to watch a lot of the food and restaurant related reality television that seemed to run on the more obscure cable channels.  One of my favorites was Bar Rescue.  And, one of the […]

Cuteness Palate Cleanser

So, I’m a fairly apolitical guy and I need a mental palate cleanser after all the political convention coverage lately. And, outside of unicorns, I can think of no better mood enhancer than endless streams of adorable animals brought to you via Tumblr. So, here you go: Kittens & Puppies Cute Puppies and Kittens dogs […]

Amazon Price Tools

Our streaming-only television plans may have failed, but I’ve been enjoying the Amazon Prime membership we got for it. There’s a part of me that’s a little terrified of Amazon, because that much power in the hands of one commercial organization is scary, but there’s another part of me that really likes the incredible variety […]

Uncle Walt’s Health Tips for Men

Seriously, health tips from Walt Whitman himself. I think about health a lot, because I’m overweight.  My cardiologist would like me to lose at least 20 pounds, preferably more.  He just doesn’t quite buy that my wife, being a good Southern woman, expresses her love for me through food.  And, she really loves me.  Seriously. […]
