Month: August 2017

Oh…And One More Thing…


Yesterday I picked up an energy saving kit from my local public utility company. It is a major score. In the box there is the following: 8 – LED lightbulbs 2 – LED filament bulbs 2 – faucet aerators 1 – water-saving shower head…

August 30, 2017 – Another Busy Weekend


I have been rather busy this weekend, and it’s just too early to go back to work tomorrow! I need another day off. Better yet, make it two! I am sitting here writing this while enjoying one of my favorite wines – Two Vines…

Winding Down


As the season winds down, we are all doing the same. People heading back to college in a couple of weeks, some traveling, or others off to another seasonal gig. Still plenty of work to do yet, though for those of us being kept…

An Interesting Evening


Ahhh…wine… I went down to the Chinese restaurant for a late supper. It was a bit surreal experience tonight. It was like one of those black & white movies from to 40s or 50s – dark sidewalk in a small town, with a little…

Today, August 23rd, 2017


Well, I went out and got a few lottery tickets today. What the hell. I have not played for quite a while so I splurged and spent $20. Don’t think I got anything out of it though. Oh well. They don’t sell the lottery…

Movies Again – August 23rd, 2017


Finished off the remainder of my stack of DVDs from the library today and tonight. I skimmed the “Concert for Bangladesh” and caught what I thought were the highlights. I also tried to watch “Detroit Rock City” but couldn’t finish it. I’d seen it…

A Few Movies – August 23rd, 2017


I have gotten some movies from the library I have not seen before and thought I would share my impressions. I tend to gravitate towards more of the independent films since they are not as boring as Big Hollywood and tend to take rewarding…

I Had a Few Interesting Things Happen Lately


For one, I was talking to some visitors – a mom and four kids aged from around eighteen  to about nine. They were really nice people and asked a lot of questions about a lot of things. I was showing them some local plants…

August 17th, 2017 – Movies and Stuff


I’ve taken advantage of both my big-screen TV and the library next door and went old-school and watched some interesting DVDs. Nope…no streaming for these! Over the last few nights I watched “Galaxy Quest”, “J. Edgar”, and “Team America: World Police”. The first one is…

Long Weekends Are Awesome


Four days off. Man, it’s been nice. Got things done around the apartment, a doctor appointment was taken care of, I tried Salvadoran food, went for a drive, relaxed, slept in…a much-needed respite from the world. This time off really has me now anxiously looking…

Another Busy Week


Another workweek has come and gone, but this was a short one for me as far as days. I still worked 12-hour days over the weekend, but I took off most of yesterday to burn up some time and I took off for a…

Back to Work


Tomorrow is Monday for me, and the first day of commuting for me in many years other than my short Post Office stint nearly three years ago. Hard to believe that phase of life was so long ago, but good riddance to it. It…
