I Don't Miss Colorado
Beautiful, cool, overcast day today. Proper Oregon weather.   I don’t miss my home state—Colorado—at all, despite the fact that I lived there forty years. I think I left it at just the right time, before it exploded into the enor...

If You Ran Your Business Like FedEx Runs Theirs, You'd Go Out of Business Within Your First Year.
Radishes and cucumber slices. Some dill, some salt and pepper, some oil and vinegar.   Frickin’ delicious.   Our new PS5 was lost the balance of the day today as it makes its way to us. It was supposed to be here by now, but the shipping comp...

Everything Has to Be Mind-blowing

We're at War
It’s necessary to see—really see—that we’re at war.   I took our thermometer outside a couple days ago and stuck it in the shade. When I got back from doing some chores, I grabbed it and read— 91.3˚   We

Still no dentist appointment. I’m going to try to make one (again) after I finish this blog entry.   A good post, I think, on angels and the afterlife coming this Saturday on my Substack. I hope you pop by and have a read!   Elvis sandwiches ...

I Can't Take It Personally
The Solstice is coming in less than a week. After that, the days start getting shorter again. Thank God.   My old blog, at the end, was pushing six hundred pageviews a day. This new one, less than a month old, is pushing sixteen. ...
