The other morning, Sunday before Labor Day, I think, I was in awake rather early and heard the delightful chirp of a cricket. Actually at first I was not quite sure what I was hearing, but as I sought out the sound and got closer it dawned on my sleeping awareness that it was indeed a cricket. Really not anything to get excited about, except that I have always associated the chirp of crickets with the onset of fall – which is my favorite time of year.
The other morning I tried to do to many things at once and because of that I dropped my favorite coffee/tea mug as it slipped from my grip and broke the handle off of it. No problem I though, I have all the pieces and can glue it back on at some point later, maybe and if not I can use it without a handle for the most part. But with sadness yesterday I realized that there is a hairline fracture in the vessel now and sure enough this morning I noted that there was a leak from my tea… Continue reading
I was recently challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I had, before that time had a conversation with a good friend about someone else ice challenge where instead of using a bucket, they had dunked themselves in a tub of water with a good amount of ice. I thought that would be a fairly unique way to complete mine as well. What follows is the videos of that act in progress. Note, I have already shared two of these on face book, but managed to find/get the first one that shows the amount of ice that was started with and just how warm it was and how rapidly the ice was melting.
Time Warner Cable strikes again… Or in the same sense of the moniker “Orange is the New Black,” TWC is the new AT&T. To be completely fair, the actual striking part, as in the lightning strike can not properly be blamed on Time Warner Cable. The aftermath of that and what has me irked all over at them again, however, can be laid squarely at their door.
Time Warner Cable is on my list, yet again. You would think that I would learn, but no, I can’t seem to get that down. What has my most recent ire raised in the TWC’s direction? Several things, so why don’t you pull up a chair and read for a bit…
Ideas. We all have them. I just had an awesome one. So awesome in fact, that since I was already have trouble sleeping I got up to go ahead and blog about. During the short time while I got a drink of water and put on a pair shorts I even wrote out the basic first paragraph, followed by some outline of the rest of the blog post. The problem with ideas sometimes? The short-term memory failure.
At Whitaker Ballpark in Lexington Kentucky last night it was all about the stache… Moustache that is. Well, the stache, baseball, and just good clean family entertainment. What the heck am I talking about? The Lexington Legends minor league baseball team of course. Went to the game last evening, with perfect weather, free tickets, and a good time was had by all!

I have been working in the Information Technology field in some regard or another for just about 25 years. My current employment has been for just about eight years. It is amazing the amount of old technology that accumulates in such a short window of time. IT folks, myself included, are notorious for saving this cable and that electronic gizmo because we never know when we might need it. From time to time a clean out is needed… Continue reading
A few days back now, I hit a bird with my truck. It was without malice but all the same the bird was hit. Or rather the bird flew into the underside of the truck, but damage ensued all the same I am sure. It made me rather sad and reflective about the situation. A situation about which I have often thought about…
