Hurricane Season Preparations

The Gulf Coast is well into Hurricane Season. Are you prepared? Here in Texas, hurricane season is kind of a big deal. And, with global climate change making tropical storms more frequent and more severe, it’s getting to be a bigger deal all the time. Usually, we have more than enough time to prepare, if […]

Collected Freebies

You all know how I love free stuff. And, those of you poor souls who have been coming to this blog, week after week, also know that I am as lazy as I can possibly manage to be. Toward that end, I do my absolute best to share only the best links stolen from other […]

Hacker Games

Sounds like a good title for a book! Except it’s not. In my day job, I’m a professional geek. And, what I mean by that is that I work with computers for money. It seems like the vast majority of the guys my age who got into computers professionally did so because they were inspired […]

When To Buy What

Yes, you can save money by buying at the right time. About a week ago, our dryer died. Or maybe our washing machine died. All we know is, right in the middle of a load, my wife started to smell the most horrible stench of burning electronics. She turned everything off and unplugged it all, […]

Government Approved Webcomics

I’ve been sick for the past two weeks, so I’m short on thinky-talky-writey energy. Still, trooper that I am, I’m here with a link to fabulous free things for you, like I have been every Friday for years beyond easy count. Honestly, I’m not even sure why I continue to do it most weeks, but, […]

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 […]
