shame on us

My postings here were distracted by impressive events on the home front. We trusted, loved, gave without measure of ourselves and resources. We were building family: a strong nuclear, multi-generational family in an extraordinarily healthy community. In our dream the kids, who had a bad habit of moving on every year or two, would find our world so perfect in […]

out to lunch

I apologize for the absence of current postings. Support for the next generation just blew up in our faces. Who-da-thunk helping would be punished? It is a complicated psychology wherein the helpees have to deamonize the helpers in order to justify their failure to uphold their part of the bargain. Nevertheless, we have been thoroughly deamoninzed. Our world will be […]

certified olive oil

I am proud that I do not unquestioningly accept pronouncements from OFFICIALS. But the University of California, Davis olive oil story broadcast all over the lamestream and Internet media sucked me in. I hate to admit I was faked out by the fake story on fake olive oil, 🙁 but am happy to publish the other side. 🙂 Once you […]

capped the dude

Shortly after I switched from a ’63 Porsche hardtop to a topless ’56 Porsche Speedster, I tripped over a street merchant in San Francisco who was hawking his hand-made caps. It was a bit more than I could justify spending, but an elk-hide Greek fisherman’s cap fit my head, needs and desires so well that it went home with me. […]

campaign spending

I am on the November 8th ballot for Montana Governor because the incumbent is an anti-self-defense elitist, and because no other candidate will make ending cannabis prohibition and testing the safety of our soil, air and water into important priorities. Every vote in the [X] Ted Dunlap for governor box says those things are important enough that person bothered to […]

soaring

I have had dreams where I could fly. Not the supersonic or hypersonic way Superman did, but effortless travel in all directions including vertical. During them I was always amazed that the only thing holding me back had been my inability to believe I could. And that turned out to be how they ended as well. Even knowing I had […]

radio, reloading bench

I am more than a little surprised today to discover I never shared my finished product here. Ta Da! One of the endearing bits of me as far as the Missus is concerned is my role as “Shelf-Meister”. I have squeezed just about as much shelf space into this (and prior) homes as imaginable. Of course they are STRONG, but […]

back pain gone

I just realized I did not share the final chapter in my herniated disc tale. I was successful in treating it without the 50/50 chance of being crippled for life that AMA treatments offered. As far as I can tell, my back is 100% of what it would have been if I’d never injured it. Here’s the tale I told […]

lighthouse lit

Not wanting to forget turning off our Internet when it isn’t in use, I visualized a lighthouse going along with our brass sailboats. When lit, it would remind us that our wireless and modem were on. Missy dropped it way down my ToDo list quite some time ago by finding a thrift store lighthouse and cable-tying a nightlight to the […]

new theme

WordPress calls them “themes”, but in classes I teach on website-building I often refer to them as “skins”. The templets that control how a blog website looks and functions are built by programmers who greatly simplify publishing, but severely limit what you can do with them … that is, without building your own skins. I haven’t wanted to learn that […]
