RIP Sean Connery

2020 just couldn’t take a break could it, can’t let us enjoy a limited Halloween and have a little pause before the shitstorm election. I know Sean was 90ish yet I didn’t know he had been ill recently. I’m glad … Continue reading

Second night of Pinballz Go Kart League

Despite missing the practice heat and driving a busted kart (#8) in the qualifier, no, really, it wasn’t my driving for a change; I had a better run last night. Given how much better…well, all the league members are at … Continue reading

These two bums battling the cold weather today

Today isn’t as nasty as the day before but I would still rather sleep in. I caught these two rubbing in it on how they can. A rare moment when the two of them agree to be in the same … Continue reading

In case you don’t know the difference

I couldn’t let October completely pass without a little nod to Italian heritage. This visual joke comes courtesy of my cousin Dana. Pretty funny and accurate since there’s an old joke about us…ahem! How do you make an Italian shut … Continue reading

Testuggine & Pegasus were adopted

Last night I experienced my first foster adoption and some tears. The little tortie (Testuggine) and gray/white combo (Pegasus) kittens met their forever family. These very nice people took the sisters together so they’d have playmates, cut down on separation … Continue reading

Everything is fixed now!

Given Biden’s seven-to-ten point lead, depending upon which poll, voting for him and his GOP Lite agenda will fix everything! I for one did my minimal civic duty by participating in early voting. Oddly, I was only in line for … Continue reading

First night of Pinballz Go Kart League!

I’ll open with this…Mario Andretti I am not. I’d be lucky to be Janet Guthrie (a barrier-breaking driver, who sadly won no titles). However, I’m glad the owners of Pinballz finally took my nagging request to start a league. What … Continue reading

RIP: The Amazing Randi

Before Mythbusters there was the Amazing Randi hitting the talk-show circuit in the Seventies and Eighties (definitely that decade). Although Randi didn’t prove or disprove those implausible stories involving hairspray in the toilet or JFK was killed by a ice bullet, … Continue reading

Assholism is an international language

Sadly, this is not from the porch of an American apartment building, it’s from the Netherlands courtesy of my friend living there. He didn’t go up to the townhouse to see if it belonged to an ex-pat or a Dutch … Continue reading

Today’s Mood (October 2020)

It seems like the weekend isn’t enough to recuperate with because we Americans waste it running around, finishing the crap we didn’t accomplish during the week! Making the two days off a paradox. Even so, I ‘wasted’ my Saturday by … Continue reading
