Doomsday and Other Celebrations

Well, we’ve made it to the end of another year.  And in spite of predictions to the contrary, you might have noticed that the earth as we know it was not destroyed on December 21, 2012.  That is, unless you’re still hiding in your underground shelter and are not planning to emerge until your beef

New Car Blues

It isn’t every day that one buys a new automobile.  Therefore, it should be an occasion marked with at least some measure of anticipation and excitement as I drive the shiny, as yet undented chariot off the dealer’s lot.  So why do I feel like I want to go directly home, cover my mirrors, and

Now Playing At A Theater Near You. Maybe.

I have a bone to pick with Hollywood.  Which just goes to show how annoyed I am, that so soon after the festival of engorgement I’m still talking about picking on bones! Do you like movies? Do you like going to the movies, or are you one of those people who prefer  sitting on your couch

My Life On A Diet

It’s Monday morning, and I have declared that I am going on a diet.  Again.  My weight is starting to climb.  Again.  I’m sure if I try hard enough, I can identify more evil food items that must never again pass my lips – foods that will join the cadre of those already banished, like

Setting The Standard

Election day is almost here and thank goodness! After November 6th we can perhaps look forward to some respite before those tiresome political commercials are replaced by equally tiresome holiday commercials.  Or perhaps not.  In any event, I hope my readers have appreciated that  my blogs have been non-political.  At least until right now! I

It’s Just A Matter of Time

The other day I met a friend that I hadn’t seen for a long time.  “So,” she asked, “are you still working?”  “No,” I answered, “I’ve recently retired.”  “So,” she asked again, “how have you been spending your time since you retired?”  She might as well have asked me to explain Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

The Shape of Things To Come

I am starting to have serious concerns about the survival of our species.  There is no reason to believe that humans can last forever with our current anatomical design. I mean, just consider the dinosaurs. They walked the earth for 150 million years, and might still be around today if they had been willing to
