    What did you have for dinner tonight?

    I used to love to cook. More and more it just seems to be a chore. Even the thought of eating. I mean, of course we must eat to live. But the seemingly never ending, "what're we going to eat?", "what're you going to eat?".... eat eat eat eat......just shoot me in the dang dangit head and get it...

    Locking threads?

    Come on, man, what's up? I just wrote a well thought and civil reply to someone who had earlier replied to my post. It's a topical subject that could be interesting, perhaps even informative. Maybe in the context of the discussion someone might learn something they did not know, perhaps even...

    Writing someone else's song?

    Wasn't sure what to call the thread.... What to be done to determine whether something you've made-up/written has actually already been written by someone else? What to do? What do you do? Context: At least fifty percent of the time I write in my head before even picking up an instrument. I...

    Should Parents Have A Say In Their Child's Education?

    Democrat candidate for Governor of the state of Virginia Terry McAuliffe recently made the statement during a debate, "I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” In the same debate he proudly acknowledged when he previously sat as governor of Virginia he vetoed...

    Let's Go Brandon!

    Episode forty leven hundred in the Insanity Chronicles. Background: Somewhat recently at events where large numbers of people have gathered, perhaps first at college football games, for reasons I can't imagine people have began to chant in unison, "Fuck Joe Biden". It kind of caught on and it...

    The oceans are sinking!

    Which explains why globing warming isn't making sea levels rise as predicted. It all makes sense, sorta. Wai....did I say global warming? I meant climate change. That's why it's so damn cold outside, too. Researchers used a mathematical equation known as the elastic sea level equation to more...

    I did something stupid.

    Last night I made Kung Pao Chicken and Hot n Sour Soup. I ate a bowl of soup, and gave it a break while I did some serious political blogging on the innernetz(I didn't have any stir fry). So, a little later I decided to have some more soup. I went into the kitchen, grabbed my bowl off the...

    The Burning Man

    WTF? Seemingly "normal" dude breaks through the security line and runs straight into the fire? Didn't the same thing happen just last year, or the year before? Burning Man Fest: One Dead, Another in Critical Condition - Rolling Stone WTH is this thing all about? Anybody here ever attended? I...

    Yep, I picked one up today.....CPAP, continuous positive air pressure, I reckon it stands for...for good sleepies. Anyone else here have any experience with this contraption they'd care to share? I'm hoping it is worth all the hype. I may use this space to keep somewhat of a diary to document...

    My new girlfriend, Alexa.

    What strange times we live in. Any of you guys (or gals) have this Alexa thing? My wife hooked me up over the Christmas holiday. I've yet to explore everything she can do, but I do know we have some interesting exchanges over a beer or two after the wife hits the sack.....I guess it's good to...

    Yes, fruitcake. Leading towards and into the Christmas holiday there is such a bounty of food to eat, there's no room for fruitcake. Now that Christmas has come and gone stores are reducing the price to clear the shelf of those blocks of fruit cake. Personally, it's become almost a tradition...

    To thumb, or not to thumb?

    That is the question. When I was a kid hold-up in my bedroom learning to play guitar, thoroughly ensconced in barre chordage, learning the songs of all of my guitar heroes, I would look up at all the many posters on my walls and puzzle, why no (or so few) barre chords? Were they at the moment...
