A real crappy week…

This past week really sucked. Started out with my ex-sister harassing my mom on FB. My cousin’s husband is hospitalized with heart failure. Antifuk and BlackLiesMatter are busing up to 300 “protesters” from California into a small rural town in MY state to “protest” against the local Sheriff’s office. His “sin” was pointing out that BLM is a Marxist organization. … Read the rest

Great Blue Heron

great blue heronEver since this Wuhan virus crap started I haven’t been getting out enough. I went for a walk the other day though and came across a Great Blue Heron. He was standing next to a pond at a golf course close to my house. When I first saw him, he was so still I thought it was fake. As I … Read the rest

What’s up?

Wow, what happened to the last seven weeks? I’ve been busy, not too busy but also run down. And above all, determined not to join in on the media shit show about that thing that’s going on. SO. How are ya’ll? SinceĀ  early March, in no particular order…

  • I have lost ALL patience for stupidity and stupid people. You know,

The best time to plant a tree

The best time to plant a tree“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” I should have listened to my high school guidance counselor. Reviewing the results of my satisfaction test (can’t remember what it was actually called), he told me the results: The two jobs I’d most likely to find satisfying were Minister or Forest Ranger. … Read the rest

New Glock 47 – pfft…

Glock 47 CBPIn early April, Glock announced a new model as part of an $85 million contract with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The Glock 47 is the same size as a Gen 5 G17, and not available to civilians. It does have some interesting features though, so it’s worth checking out. I first read about the G47 on a blog … Read the rest

Can’t fix stupid…

I grew up in a small town. Most of the land was (is) controlled by a distant city for the water rights. A few days ago, the city proposed selling some of the land to locals as long as the city retained water rights. Predictably, some idiots living in the small town think this is JUST GREAT. One in particular, … Read the rest

Finally decided to test the new WP editor

I never really understood why organizations take a perfectly good product and eff it up. For example the old Word Press editor. It worked fine. If I wanted to write “visually” I’d just pick the “Visual” tab in the editor. If I preferred typing in straight text and manually adjusting markup I’d select the “Text” tab. If I wanted to … Read the rest

Please send me some locust borers…

Please send me some locust borers!!! When we bought our home in 2003 it had a pretty black locust tree in the back yard. A variety of the black locust called purple robe. Besides shade, it gave us a show of lovely purple flowers every spring. The relationship turned sour soon though. It kept sending out little sucker roots every … Read the rest

KETO diet – just Man Up

There’s a blog I read on a pretty regular basis. The writer usually has good info but he tends to stuff his writing with lots of affiliate links. OK I guess, everyone needs to make money and after all I don’t have to click on them…

He seems to be on a new theme – the KETO diet. Nothing wrong … Read the rest
