I have to introduce you to my latest big success.  I found this one day on my walk home from my bus drop-off point.  For several weeks, I’d tracked a ‘for sale’ sign in front of a house.  Then, the sign disappeared and people showed up.   Continue reading

american-flagI’ve ranted before about Memorial Day on this blog in a post here and another one here.  I wanted to do another this year, but I don’t like to recycle posts and there’s only so much glorification one can do, even for an important day like Memorial Day.  Today isn’t Memorial Day, but more on that later.

Aaaaugghhh!

Why no electrons?!

We can slingshot a probe around Jupiter to take pictures of Pluto, send one to orbit a comet, and another straight the fuck out of the Solar System.  My cable company cannot arrive to fix their equipment sooner than today, after five days of no internet or cable.

I don’t mind standing in lines.  Most of the time, it’s a choice between something you want or not getting it.  In this case, my object of need was caffeine provided by my favorite coffee purveyor.  Continue reading

Okay, so what did you think you just read there in the title?  Uh huh.  Shame on you, but thanks for landing here because there is some bragging to be done.  I mentioned in an earlier post that I would replace my deck.  Continue reading

Winter… It Still Sucks Balls

Posted in Awesome, Random, Rant with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2015 by BrainRants

I’m not used to this new climate, location or anything related to shit that falls out of the sky by ‘normal’ definition.  In spite of that, I’m pissed… I know, big news, right?  Anyway, I’ve watched snow fall all goddamn fucking day. Continue reading

Belated Bragging

Winner-2014-Square-ButtonAlmost two months ago, I accomplished something and I’m just now getting around to bragging about that shit.  Leave it to my microscopic attention span and overbooked calendar.  I had shelves to build and other stuff to do, like reorganize Continue reading
