happy thanksgiving

28 Nov

I expect, like you, I’ll be busy doing the cooking and eating thing all day. More than likely, I’ll be out-of-pocket. You should be too. Go watch some parades and football. (Unlike the subject of the last post, this song has only been around a year. Somehow, it makes me feel old too.)


want to feel old?

This song is twenty years old: You’re welcome.


friday random ten – “number ten is not a firefly reference” edition

22 Nov

The week itself has been busy, but there aren’t any particular events to which I can point which have exhausted me so.

“get out and vote” – my annual appeal

04 Nov

So, tomorrow, Tuesday, is election day in America. Here’s where I make use of my little pulpit to encourage everyone within reach of my electronic voice to make the effort to get out to your polling place and vote. Sure, it’s an off-year election, and unless you happen to be in one of two states […]
