I’ve been working on so much these days at my job. I don’t know how I can keep up with all the stuff I have to do. My to-do list keeps growing, and growing, and growing. I get one thing done, and five more come up. It doesn’t help that yesterday […]

(sorry to those of you on campus - I didn’t realize the site was on the black list. Here’s the picture for you to see, at least)
Yet another quiz for you: this one probably appeals to the geeks among us more that it will to others. Having done it, I think I agree […]

The brothers seem to be resolving to write more entries and better entries in their respective blogs. Maybe it’s time for me to think about revamping mine, or maybe just to notice things to write about. It all comes down to a matter of subject.

Excuse me while I rub my eyes, but does this Chevrolet look like this Mazda? Maybe just a little bit? Not a bad thing, in my opinion, but interesting, nonetheless.

Today, I join the ranks of the people who are, well, a year older than what I was. 23 doesn’t seem much of a milestone by any list, but that’s where I am.
I feel old, thinking about that number. All things considered, though, old is a relative term. To my wife, I’ll […]

If you’re ever interested, the place to go to rotate your tires is Discount Tire will do it for free. Even if you didn’t buy the tires there. If you did buy them there, they will balance them free. After struggling with some stuck wheels (frozen onto the hubs even with the […]

Does anyone else notice that computers are getting louder these days? I’m working on building these things at work, so I have my computer and the one I’m working on both running in the office. I’ve got mine to a managable level by banishing it from the desk. The other one is […]

I was amazed when the 10-day shipping (the cheapest option) only took 4 days to move my new toy from New Jersey to here. Not a bad surprise, really. Now I’m trying to figure out how to work it and what I want to do with it. For years I’ve used little […]
