Rot in Hell Donald Rumsfeld

Hopefully the Delta Strain won’t ruin this hope

Rumor has it that these are back at Costco and HEB. I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart or Sam’s Club so I have little idea. Fingers crossed but it looks doubtful. Los Angeles is back to wearing masks indoors, even … Continue reading

Yeah…not a really a good slogan to boast

The 2021 Cup will be the Habs v. Lightning

Happy Caturday, June 2021; sweetie, pull me a Twix bar too!

A rather hilarious picture of something quite possible when it comes to kittens. They’re very curious, more liquid than adult cats and not very bright. Given how heavy the door is on a vending machine in order to get your … Continue reading

1876: The Battle of Greasy Grass ends in Custer’s defeat

Most people refer to this as Little Bighorn but I prefer to go with the winners, a combined force of First Nations known as the Lakota, North Cheyenne and Arapaho. It’s also known as one of America’s biggest defeats in … Continue reading

The QDRO was signed by a judge, the nightmare is over!

RIP Frank Bonner

I know Frank passed away last week but I finally worked in the time to give him his proper due instead of rushing it. Like many in Gen X, I knew Frank mostly for his role as Herb Tarlek, the … Continue reading

Holy Crap! I got my Tax Refund already!

It’s amazing due to how quickly the government wants the money you owe them but they never seem to be in a hurry to pay you back. Ever since I got married, I stopped doing my taxes in a hurry … Continue reading

Austin is testing pizza-delivery ‘bots

The robot mostly made the news because it would be using the bike lanes in downtown Austin which might stir up our vocal cyclist community. I think the robots resemble a miniature Zamboni®. I couldn’t find out who the robots … Continue reading

Made it to the Solstice 2021

Jennifer isn’t a fan of the Sun since she prefers to hit the sack around the same time old people prefer to. It’s mostly due to her job as a nurse; she wakes around 3:30 AM and shows up by … Continue reading
