Looks like I neglected this site for a while ! Not so with my tumbr though ! I can never make up my mind which I prefer….
I was up at 02:00 am to take mother-in-law and her sister to airport. I am really tired; I suspect getting up too early is worse than going to bed too late. What’s really rough though is to go to bed too late AND get up too early ! I’m way too old to do that anymore ….
I saw two foxes on my morning walk and so far now I have over 5K steps ! Good day !
A good start to the day, I went walking in the dark, so far I have 7.5K steps ! Now, time for a spreadsheet….
Tired as a very old dog today. I stayed up ’til past midnight which of course was very irresponsible (but I’m not perfect) So this morning I drove to state college to visit my daughter and we went to the Grange Fair, so of course I am exceptionally tired now….
It’s coffee time and I am upgrading to Windows 10 on my other computer….
Phase 1 of Operation Mother-in-Law started yesterday. Extensive cleaning, decluttering and room reconfigurations are expected to continue through this week. Phase 2 the drive to the outer reaches of Yooperland is scheduled to start this coming Friday….
A great start this morning; a nice 2 mile walk. Things quickly devolved when I got to work. I had to wrangle a really large spreadsheet which proved to be more than I anticipated; worked on it all day and will continue tomorrow. I hate those hit and run jobs when I already have plenty of work to get done ! Oh well, much better than unemployment. I had intended to go walking this evening but instead worked overtime. Stand by for tomorrow…..
My Friend Dated My Rapist is the personal story of a woman who was raped at a dorm party in her freshman year at college. She tells how she tried to ignore it by burying it deep in her mind but eventually found some degree of relief from the pain by speaking up and telling her story. Continue reading
So I was poking around in the break room refrigerator this morning; just to see what was there. I saw a jar of funny little round things. A closer looked revealed that they were “Capers”. I’ve never had one, in fact they look like something you shouldn’t eat. So what the hell are they anyway ? http://goo.gl/PYmtJ6
Better living thru chemistry, some of my old posts tagged “drugs” http://goo.gl/C2Zf3t
A hot summer day at a family outing in the park. The kids was playing in the creek. I noticed the current pulling Leah down stream. I yelled “Leah!” and springing into action I took a flying leap into the creek where I was met with the cold reality of a hardwood floor. Ouch ! I’m not at the park watching the kids playing in the creek. Rather, I am flat out on the floor beside my bed. So now I have a bruise but I’m right pleased that Leah is OK. Happening now ! It’s coffee time !
Not what you think ! I’m referring to your mobile device….
This is your brain on mobile: A critique of destructive smartphone habits diagnosed by someone that makes a living off of them.
I make Excel spreadsheets to document personal property claims and to be honest, I am damn good at it. I know my way around Excel. So what would I like to be better at ? Let’s start with being a better Excel geek…
I could learn more about the statistical functions, pivot tables and the like. Or I could become a master of VBA coding….
Or perhaps something different entirely. I could develop my writing skills or increase my proficiency at one on one communication skills….
There’s all sorts of things ! Let’s focus and get busy !
All in all a good weekend. I got some work done for the office and made it to church today. So i’m happy in spite of wasting too much time in IRC on Saturday….
Remember man, you are dust and to dust you shall return. Death is my constant companion and your’s too. I suppose that may sound melodramatic but think about it; it’s the plain truth.
So why am I contemplating my mortality today ? It’s still Christmas, not Ash Wednesday ! Continue reading
The car next to me at Wal-Mart; some guy was crawling all over a girl, chewing on her face ! Looked like her pants was about ready to come off ! I had to turn my head to avoid burning my eyes…..
Today is a day like any other. I fixed some breakfast, let the dogs out, did some readings. Just a typical Sunday more or less…. Continue reading
I was standing in my kitchen and felt a sudden shake of the house, lasted only a couple seconds. I went outside to look around and saw nothing. So I concluded that it was my imagination. Wrong ! A it later my daughter called and asked about the earthquake, then I checked twitter and it was all over on there. I had planned to go to an appointment in Bethesda but now I won’t ’cause I’m sure the traffic is a mess….
