hot garden blues


Zucchini I am so done with you.  We made zucchini bread which was decent, but really it was a desperation move. Get the grater baby. We're making these big green bastards into something! And there were other recipes and then .. enthusiasm gone, done. Two large ones stole much needed… Read full post »

Open Salon used to be so cool. There were always fights and apparently some of the old timers have forgotten that. I think the reason the golden age [to me 2009 to 11 -- I missed 08 but heard it was great] was better, is that there were

hawk sauce

   My Dad has been gone for 9 years. Didn't see him often for the twenty years prior, but that wasn't his fault, or even mine. His new shrew wife was to blame for isolating Dad from us kids and I used to hate her but not anymore. How long can… Read full post »

Wood Pecker

   There's a cheeky family of woodpeckers out back living off my finch feeder. I say "family" but in reality have no clue if they are related. Rather presumptious to assume that just because of common genes they're shacking up. If it is a common law situation, and I am tRead full post »

it's all there (m-day tail)


    Charlotte texted me at 12:26pm. Our meeting was set for 12:30 so I was on my way, just up the block. She said "I'm here, parked between D'Bronx and the deck/cabinet store." I didn't know what she was driving, having forgotten to ask, so parked in that general… Read full post »

dear diary on rain day

Hard core rain today, which is great. Someone told Asia we are at 45 inch shortfall for the last two years and I believe it. That said, it's been a nicer than expected Spring .. far better than last year at least.

A fishing trip will be happening in the near.… Read full post »

Obamacare leads to incarceration

 
When you want Obamacare, you drive to meet Kat the broker who has proven trustworthy and has all the answers. If you're running late and have anal retentive tendencies for being on time for appointments, and happen to turn the wrong direction off the interstate on a busy thoroughfare, you… Read full post »

Mardi Gras Day .. aka Fat Tuesday, is today, and hardly a word about it on the internet . . not that I've seen at least.

Revenge for the ghost of PS Hoffman


I too liked Phillip Seymour Hoffman a lot better alive than dead.  
 
The condition which ultimately took him out of this world is a treatable one. The only option available in America, abstinence through AA and NA worked for him for twenty-two years . . until it

Trying to maintain a once per week blog, but here it is Thursday, most optimalist day for publishing as I've discovered through my own primitive observations of net algorhithms, and I have nothing.
 
What to do but plow forward? Ramble on . . .

J. Osteen v J. Christ

 
       I have a love-hate relationship with facebook. Mostly hate, which explains why I keep a tab open all day long, right. Didn't join forever, then did for a while, got disgusted, and quit for months. Finally re-joined under a pseudo because (mostly, ha) it's the best waRead full post »

legal pot alarmists --- STFU


According to today's Huffpo piece on Colorado legal weed - "Marijuana skeptics watched in alarm. They warned that the celebratory vibe in Colorado masked dangerous consequences. Wider marijuana availability, they say, would lead to greater illegal use by youth, and possibly more traffic acRead full post »

Men and their balls

 
 
 Hundreds, if not thousands of times, I heard my
Grandma say in feigned (?) disgust -
"men and their balls!" 
 
Sometimes it was "men and their damned balls." Grandpa would shush her to which she would often reply in a shriek of sorts that scared me and

Abortion and Conservapedia.com

 

      This morning I saw a reference on facebook to "conservapedia." Couldn't resist doing a google search, thinking it was probably a joke. Maybe it is, put out there for humors' sake by some hilarious group of satirists, but it is in fact there as you can see forRead full post »

Why Duluth?

Cheap airfare.

Very few people fly to Duluth on purpose after Labor day. 

We gather at the squalid banquet hall of the (also cheap) NoTell Motel, walking distance from the airport, at dusk .. 4pm. Wind is from the northeast at 35 to 50. Outdoor temp is… Read full post »

more inbred meme shit from oZ


The title is from a comment pointed my direction recently. Something about being sick of my inbred meme shit, that I sucked as a writer, and that the adults here prefer serious discussions about the end of civilization, etc..

Somewhat reminds of a guy in a bar saying, while

The eighties were a cruel time for me personally, no doubt of that, and goodness knows I've written much here about my life then .. drugs and rock 'n' roll without the sex, trickle-down Raygunomics rarely trickling my direction ... but it was then that I learned my current hustle of
