Work has involved packaging and mailing lots of heavy boxes, which seems to rip my fingernails up because they're kind of soft. Maybe I need some Jello (or Knox for Nails?). And lately I'm dealing wit...
In light of the scam messages that have been pouring in, I thought I would mention this one. I received a couple of alarming text messages claiming to be from my bank, saying my account is frozen, and...
I should be packing boxes for shipping some equipment, but instead I'm wasting time reading about what vegetables I can regrow, like romaine, celery, garlic, onions. I have a long list now, and I thi...
My area had incredibly high winds that knocked down all kinds of power lines. I kept running outside to see if my trash cans were still where they should be, and on one trip found the cap from the chi...
Books I’m Reading— on Kindle, a Fu Manchu novel. I am growing more and more fond of old pulp novels. But it is startling sometimes to read the accepted (and constant, in this book) bigotry of thos...
When I was a kid I mostly ignored the Dick Tracy cartoon strip because it contained such unpleasant grotesques as villains (at this time I think my preference was for silver age Superman, Batman), but...

Preparing for a possible storm here. Tomorrow around noon some snow will be falling but they can’t guess really how much. Possibly 5-8 inches. Then rain on top of that, and then snow again on top of...
Christmas at my sister’s turned out nice, and it is so gratifying when your cooking turns out well — especially when you’re an untalented cook. Everyone stayed away from dangerous subjects like ...
First the car had troubles in the front: The hood release lever came loose from the cable, so I couldn’t open the hood. (Yes, that happened a while back and I delayed fixing it. Good thing I'd had a...
I found what I’m calling a Happiness shirt that I bought for my sister’s husband for Christmas. An artist just posted on Reddit a recent painting of his, and it was so wildly colorful and funny I ...
I just checked the outage maps that West Penn Power has for its customers, and the one flagged right by my friend Brian's road says: 1-20 customers affected, Cause: tree damage; and the estimated repa...
The snowstorm that hit so suddenly on Thursday affected me only slightly, had to sweep some snow, but for my friend Brian an hour and a half away, the power was knocked off... and still, 3 days later,...
