I love Amazon.com. It should be pretty obvious, but what is there that is not to love about this company. In addition to all the other wonderful benefits that come with using Amazon and especially Amazon Prime, here are two more wonderful examples of this company be ran right. Continue reading
Last night I was restless but past the time of wanting to do anything useful. So after wasting some time on a stupid cart racing game on the Amazon Fire TV (more to come about both at a later date) I stumbled upon an old friend, Nova. Nova is a science nerd’s buffet, granted on a weekly basis of often in-depth looks at some scientific principal. Last night was getting super cold, but the part I found so interesting was of course the super conductors that are found at those really cold temperatures. Continue reading
A few months back we had lightning come in on the electric panel of the house. A television, a garage door opening, a Roku, and a the dryer were among the casualties. Of those items, the television was fairly quickly replaced and the Roku bowed out to an Amazon Fire TV. The garage door is way down the list of things and was already being a pain anyway. The dryer, well it was going to be expensive so we had to save a bit. Continue reading
Are you looking for something to do this week or between now and Christmas for that matter? Something that involves the season but yet, is not all the over hustle and bustle that so many activities of the season seem to involve? Look no further than a short trip to Louisville to take in the Mega Cavern’s Lights Under Louisville. Continue reading
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.
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…
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…
This morning I have had sports on my mind as I was sipping my coffee and eventually having my breakfast. Those moments are long past, but that is what is still on my mind and hence what I am going to blog about. In the past I have done a section called observations – where I have made short observations about a variety of topics, that typically are not a full blog entry in and of their own right. I am returning to that format today in regards to sports.
