Inefficiency

I can’t stand it. The idea invokes failure. Who are the idiot architects in the grocery store game who are responsible for planning out the best (most efficient) place to put in the restrooms and pharmacies? “Put them farthest away so injured and sick people have to limp their infirmed bodies all the way toContinue reading “Inefficiency”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Back for Good

What a trip. It started out on July 18th in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona and culminated on September 14th. We are now new citizens of a little town in southern Ohio called Miamisburg. A golf course less than a mile down the road. The slow moving Miami River (Greater or Little Miami toContinue reading “Back for Good”

Finally

We closed the house. After a house closing that I would not wish on my worst enemy, we signed this morning in the quaint little town of West Chester, Ohio. We made it over to the house to turn off the breakers in anticipation of them turning on the electricity tomorrow morning, and next isContinue reading “Finally”

Wasted Energy

How much energy do we waste in the course of a day? I only ask because I am still hearing of people without power in the wake of Hurricane Ida. Hundreds of thousands of people. And how fucked up is it that people died from running their generators without ventilation? I know I waste aContinue reading “Wasted Energy”

Sports Wrap-up

We can’t mention the week without The Return to Old Trafford of favorite son Cristiano Ronaldo. But since he will not play until next weekend, enough about that. Except I just saw an ad that USA picked up the game for US distribution so now I am positive that number 7 will be in theContinue reading “Sports Wrap-up”

Keeping Secrets

Everyone does it. Nations do it. Hell, they not only keep secrets about their enemies, they keep secrets about their own citizens. Spooky. It is another of my convoluted beliefs that if you have absolutely NO secrets, you have lived a pretty boring life. As long as membership into a seminary includes being a humanContinue reading “Keeping Secrets”

Natural Selection?

Why is it, when everything seems to be going great on planet Earth, that Mother Nature rises up, slaps us in the chops and reminds us that our pass in this sphere of existence is all too temporary? The latest death toll spread over 8 different states, is 64. And that is just ONE tropicalContinue reading “Natural Selection?”

Don’t Ever Give Up

“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” Those words have been spoken millions of times but never so impactful as when North Carolina State Men’s Basketball coach Jim Valvano used them to characterize his impending exit from this planet. I vividly remember his words and I still have my signed card with them handwritten byContinue reading “Don’t Ever Give Up”
