Back To Work After 4th of July Weekend. 


It was a good long weekend. I’m depressed to be back at work.

There was a film festival this weekend. the Wife won tickets. I went with her and saw a special on Pink floyd, The Wall with Roger Waters. The Wife took friends to other films throughout the weekend. While I kicked back at home.

SUnday night we had a chicken wing party at the house. First time I ever made wings on the grill. They were good.

Sometime during the weekend, my blog went down. Chris at Diet Coke Rocks alerted me that it was down. This morning it said “Connection Refused”refused

When I got to work I called 101 Domain and by the time I talked to anyone, it was back up again.

And that’s my weekend report.

Have a good week!

Forgot My Post

Had a post for today. Simple, quick, entertaining. Impossible to forget.  I can’t remember what it was. I’ve been thinking about it almost since my post yesterday, all day. Now, post time, the mind clears.



THe common factor is that I alwayys think I won’t forget…

Oh Well, Have a good day!

Fridge Died Phone Died Internet Down

Last Friday our fridge quit working. Got it fixed Saturday. Tuesday night, it died again. Repairman said it’s dead this time.

Yesterday my new-ish phone the LG G4 died. I was looking at Google news, when the phone crashed and got stuck on the reboot screen. I moved back to my old Samsung S III.

I’m on the back porch, contemplating taking a sick day so I can get a new refrigerator.

Also, the internet has been off and on for days. I planned on posting from work yesterday, but the internet was down till lunch.

What a week!

I can’t post

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but I jusy cannot post. I need a change. I don’t know what needs to change, but I have no ideas. I feel like I post about the weather every day.

I gotta think about it. Any ideas?

Good Morning!

It is a cloudy, lugubrious morning, there’s an eclipse going on now that I can’t see because of the clouds. But it’s not cold and windy and it’s supposed to start clearing up this morning.

This has turned to a weather blog. I’m not sure of a direction for this blog. Quiet times are good times, and nothing has been happening for me to post. For months.

I’ve been thinging about it a lot, and I’ve been through times like this before. I will get through it.

Have a good day!

Blog Poll

Yesterday I got an email about my blog. This student at the University of Southern California. I’m not going to put his name here without permission, but he is studying how people present themselves on the web, and how machines can utilize the knowledge encoded in these presentations. Sounds a little scary, teaching machines how to dig deeper into our lives, but i took the survey, and enjoyed it.


I’m wondering if any of my billions of daily readers recieved a similar email, and if they took the poll?

First Post Of 2016!!!

Focus on the good, not the bad! (my original title was “First Workday of 2016”.)
Today’s going to be a hot, sunny day and I’m going to the beach at lunchtime! It’s early morning and Crux is high in the sky.
Here’s some pics from the long weekend:


My visiting Navy friend Jeff at East End.


My brother in law’s sidewalk marker for diving each and every East End dive site. This is MUCH more prestigious than an actor  having a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.


The first sunset of 2015, there was also a green flash.


And a new, experimental collage, made using my phone! ☎

Have a good day, a good week, and a good year!

Forgot All About It

I forgot all about posting in the afternoons, ’till I sat down to post this morning.

Night before last I had some weird dreams. One, I dreamed a chicken was flying through the door, and I swatted at it to keep it from flying in the house. I swatted the nightstand and woke myself (and my wife) up. Didn’t break anything on the nightstand. It was like an 8-bit chicken though, think 1980’s video game.


In another dream, my wife said “You’re always asking me if you can help me, now I need your help, and you won’t help me”. I sat bolt upright, looked around, wife sleeping, all quiet. I laid back down and went back to sleep. No video in that dream, just her voice. This one’s bugging me a little.

Now it’s Wednesday, I’ve been driving the car for about two weeks.  Hasn’t rained on me. Might take the scooter today. It’s been thunderstorming every day, just not on me. It HAS rained at work, while I’ve been inside, maybe I better take  the car…. We’ll see.

Have a good day!

Poor Lil Blog

I was just looking at WordPress’s “Freshly Pressed”. There are some amazing posts. It makes me wish my blog was better. I don’t have topics. Maybe I shouldn’t post first thing in the morning. It’s been part of my morning routine for years, coffee and post. But my brain isn’t up to speed in the morning, I don’t think, (how would I know?)

I love my camera, and I carry it around everywhere but seldom use it. Blog posts need photos, I think. I wish I had a job that required me to take pictures. Maybe. I never really had that thought before till now, when I just typed it. I’m 55 and still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

I was sleeping very deeply when  the alarm went off this morning. I feel very dazed. Just started cuppa coffee #2. Maybe I will try some afternoon postings for a while. Maybe I won’t. I don’t like to be indoors when it’s daytime. I can’t see my internet device in the sun. Maybe I need to make some changes. My life is routine, routine, routine. I think I like routine, maybe I don’t.

I don’t know, I’m rambling.

Have a good day. Leave a comment.

Same Mistake Over And Over

Morningtimes, when I usually post my post, I frequently have trouble with a topic. I have a list on my phone entitled “Topics”, which is empty.

Throughout the day,  something happens, or I think of something that would be a good topic, and I think “better write it down”. Then I think, “Nah! I’ll remember that, it’s soooo good!”

Next day over and over…”What was that great topic I had?”


Have a good day!
