Oh dear. You know why you never hear of giant solar electric plants in the PNW?

Days like the last few, that’s why. I’ve had positive results on cloudy days with my newly-expanded solar panel array, but Sunday and yesterday it did no good at all. It was rain, rain, deep gloom interspersed with occasional drizzle. … Continue reading

And that, friends, is why you need good neighbors.

It started raining yesterday in the early afternoon and didn’t stop all night long. This morning, still raining, the road was nearly impassible even for a capable 4X4. I considered this a good thing, because I have this superstition that … Continue reading

Well…except for that thing where I slaughtered all your girlfriends. That was kind of bad…

I’d like to say that Seymour has been a complete mensch through this whole sordid matter. I’d like to say that, but why lie? Seymour has been a whiny baby through this whole sordid matter. He tried to stop me … Continue reading

And I have to remind myself that this is where food comes from.

The process of transforming a chicken to “chicken” is one I don’t do often enough to get blasé about. Having raised and cared for each of these birds for years, it offends my inner SJW. I feel like a bad … Continue reading

The World’s Foremost Authority dies at 102

Professor Irwin Corey, RIP. I confess this is one of those situations where I reacted “I didn’t know he was alive.” He was pretty much a one-trick pony, but the trick was kind of funny.

This very mild winter is almost annoying…

So Monday morning I met D&L for our regular water-and-grocery run, and D said, “I’ve got a couple of shirts you can have if you want.” D is a tall, lanky guy, wears a shirt substantially bigger than my usual … Continue reading

…in December 2010… It was halfway through the car ride when Landlady said, in that tone one uses to broach a possibly sensitive subject; “So…I notice you brought a rifle case?” “Okay,” I said, “I know I’m being silly. It’s … Continue reading

There’s a camera lens on my tablet computer, and it’s facing the wrong way.

Which is why I taped over the sumbitch. It was creeping me out. And I felt a little embarrassed when I did that, a little primitive. But Claire reminds us that when your “smart” gadgets can report on you, they … Continue reading
