A rude awakening (kinda) …

Last week I was celebrating the return of my beloved MacBook Air, safely back home after its hard abandoneddrive transplant.  Being superstitious I’m afraid to jinx it, so let me just say, everything’s going very well.

I think I also mentioned that Jenson, my wonderful tech expert, upgraded my operating system to Yosemite as a surprise.  Very sweet of him because I would have messed it up for sure.  My bad technology karma always seems to Continue reading

Good as new (both of us) …

If you’ve ever wondered just how attached you are to technology, I now know.  I was without a doctorcomputer all weekend.  From about 2:00 pm last Friday afternoon until 11:00 a.m. yesterday morning.  Whew!  It wasn’t easy.

Last Thursday night was election overload.  The leaders of our four parties Continue reading

Here I go again, shooting my mouth off …

… but if I’m going to “shoot” anything, better my mouth than a gun.  At least no one will end up dead.  Angry, maybe.  Or offended possibly.  But not dead.  And that I guncan handle.

Surely you’ve been expecting me to weigh in on Cecil.  I’ve opined and ranted, in this blog, about every other vile atrocity we’ve witnessed; and sadly, continue to witness because there just seems to be no end in sight.

So why would I stop now?

How can anyone consider the taking of a life, any life, be it human, animal, mammal, whatever, fun?  How can anyone consider it entertainment?  Or sport?  Tennis is Continue reading
